So far I've enjoyed this tv, it's only been a few days though. The sound could be better IMO. I like having multiple HDMI ports, could have more composite hook-ups though. Maybe because it's been a while since I purchased a tv, I just expected more. But if you have a dvd\/blu-ray player or cable\/satelite box that allows you to use HDMI, that gives a better picture with this TV anyway. If you're like me and you can't spend $800+ on a tv, this one fits the bill. I'd look into some type of surround sound system to help solve the sound issue. Also, HD cable or satelite programming would make the picture soooooo much better.
Problem 1: PC input displayed everything, but horizontally shifted about 1\/3rd of the screen width to the right. The onscreen message said there was a resolution mismatch. Nope, sorry. 1920x1080 is 1920x1080. I work with aspect ratios and pixel counts all day long. You're not fooling me with that one Emerson. There is an adjustment for the horizontal placement, but maxing that out only got the picture halfway back to where it should be, where my 7 year old Westinghouse 720p set has it without my input at all.\n\nProblem 2: HDMI with PS3 gave me just picture, no sound. The picture was at least lined up properly and at the proper resolution. I tried several sound configurations on the PS3 to no avail. Yes, I made sure the volume on the TV was up and it wasn't muted.\n\nProblem 3: HMDI with my Sony Blu-ray player didn't work at all. No amount of turning on and off devices to prompt that all important \"digital handshake\" would resolve the issue.\n\nAll 3 of these devices have worked flawlessly with multiple other displays. I find it hard to believe that a manufacturing defect could cause 3 separate problems. (at least 2 as I suppose the 2 HDMI problems could be related) I have to conclude that poor design, testing, or firmware is at fault. Boxed it up and took it right back to my local wal-mart store.
