Whenever you buy large electronics online it is something of a cr@p-shoot. The price on this set at this size is crazy-good! I did a little investigation before purchase to discover the set is built by or licensed to be built by Curtis TV, a renown USA television set builder from back in the day of cathoid-ray TVs. The picture is great. The speakers are very decent. The controls for audio and video may be a bit simplistic for electronic connoisseurs, but they are more than adequate and the set functions quite well at the default settings. I purchased the 3-year warranty with it, and if I get 3-good years out of the set, I will upgrade to 75-inch or 85-inch model. Besides, that will allow enough time for the prices to significantly drop on those larger models.
