  • A. Yes, it comes with a table stand. You have to assemble it, because it comes separately in the box. You must also remove four screws on the TV in order to install the table stand (instructions for this are included). The TV is heavy, so I suggest laying it on the floor with bed quilts and pillows so that you can install the stand.

  • A. yes it does, it works okay, this is a large tv and had a tendency to sway a bit on the stand, in my case i have an old house with wood floors and i am a sizable person so my walking about past it can make it sway, i plan to get a stand that has the mount i can bolt the tv to it, this i think is a better setup for overall stability, and if you have kids, for sure!

  • A. i have, and i was not going to buy it until i read the extra warranty that walmart sales on this tv for like 80 bucks. you cant go wrong with the warranty. i got the tv, better than i thought. picture is great, hooked my computer to it and sat there like a kid for about a hour playing. the only knock i have on it is the sound and maybe im wrong but to me not so good. they have a bundle with surround sound for a hundred dollars more. if you dont have surround i would go with that one. i will be buying a tv for my bedroom soon and i will probably get a element if that counts.

  • A. The picture is fantastic. I love a loud clear sound on my tv, there is nothing wrong with the sound I just prefer it to be booming louder. The remote has to be at least level with the TV for it to work well. If I was robbed and they took the TV today I would buy the same one tommorrow.

We had this TV for 9 months and it started acting up. They sent us a refurbished TV and we are required to ship the TV that we paid for and does not work at our cost. For an individual to ship this big box the cost is $300.75 through UPS and $400.00 through FedEx. And the really crazy thing is we have had the refurbished TV for less than a week and it is now acting up. The company rep who talked to me also informed me that this refurbished TV is only covered for the time left on the warranty for the first TV which is 2 1/2 months. I googled the company in Michigan where I have to ship the TV. They have a regular phone number listed with the address and pictures of a beautiful building. But when I try to call the number it is disconnected. The number in the warranty information with the TV takes your information and a technician calls you from a number that shows up on your caller id as only four digits.

When my television arrived it was in great shape. After getting the base attached to the television and getting the television set in place, I turned it on and was surprised how easy the setup was. The picture was great and all my peripherals worked great too. The picture is great and the sound is fine. I have found nothing wrong with this purchase. I would recommend this television to anyone looking for a large television with HD and computer hookups. I look forward to watching football and Christmas specials with the family. What a great deal! The only thing that is slow is the television coming on with the remote, but I can deal with that. I think the picture and the sound is great, but I do plan on adding a surround sound and blue ray system to the television at a later date. Buy this television and enjoy.

Picture was ok while it worked. Started having an intermittent picture after about a year. Don't think you're getting a deal. Buy a different brand.

Exceeded expectations! This TV has the same exact picture as the $2300 Sony Bravia. Blu-ray disc look as if you're actually on the movie set watching the movie live.

The picture is excellent. The sound is a little less that what is needed. I put an RCA HES with it and it works ok. Note---it appears that someone grabbed the left side of the screen as there is a "thumbprint" on the screen. It is not seen unless there is a totally white or light colored screen.

I read all of the product reviews before buying this TV b/c I was hopeful I could get a good picture quality TV without having to shell out too much money. This TV is really clear and color crisp. There is a bit of ghosting, but the Automotion will help a lot on that front. The sound quality is mediocre, but I just hooked up my amazing computer speakers to it (b/c it has a jack for that, which is awesome) and now I've got great sound and a great picture!!! It's really a great buy and I haven't had any problems with it yet and had it for about 3 weeks now.

This television is amazing. However, the picture is sharpest using an antenna instead of cable because the T.V. is 1080p and the cable companies only transmit in 1080i. Since this T.V. has a perfect HD signal with just a rabbit ears antenna, I am planning to stop paying for cable. However, both cable and the antenna can be connected at the same time and it is easy to switch between them. I am really pleased with this T.V.
