First off, the picture quality on this TV is above average, and the size is perfect for watching movies or playing games.
The problem I have with this set is there is a tremendous amount of backlight bleed over 40-50% of the screen. It started as broad arcs from one side of the set to the other, covering the top 2/3 of the screen.
I've noticed over the last couple of weeks, that the light bleeding through is less noticeable in the middle of the screen, and it seems to have moved to the four corners.
Now it looks like there are four huge "clouds" in the corners of the set.
You can't see it when the scene is bright, but for any nighttime scene, and pretty much every game I've played, it is very noticeable and very distracting. It's one of those things where once you see it, you can't unsee it...
Overall, I'm very disappointed with this purchase.
I would say, if you have the means to pony-up a couple hundred more for a better TV, do it!
I went cheap and got exactly what I paid for...
