I'm writing this review because, like you, I've been searching for a well made TV that's reasonably priced.
First off, let me tell you the pros of this TV.
The picture is absolutely stunning. When I first hooked it up out of the box I didn't have HD so I was beginning to worry but I popped in a Blu-ray of Eagle Eye and was completely blown away. The detail of this television is amazing. Using HDMI and my PS3, the picture couldn't have been any sharper at 1080p. Bottom line; to fully appreciate this TV you MUST have HD.
The sound is well above average and much better then my old tube TV. People shouldn't expect to get a surround sound through their TV. The quality is good and I haven't experienced any loss of quality of it. Only thing missing is the optical connection, but HDMI suffices easily. Bottom line; This TVs sound will do, but invest in a decent system to fully enjoy the experience.
The features are great and plentiful. A mass of HDMI slots (description says 3, I counted 4, only have 1 hooked up right now.) 2 or 3 composite connectors (Red,yellow,white) for your old DVD players and such. A side inlet for easy hook up of your video recorder. A computer connector so you can surf the web on it. And a USB slot to enjoy things off your iPOD and such. (haven't used it yet, but says it can play .mp3 music and .mpeg videos) which is a nice add-on. The tv also has a Coxxial audio out-put to connect with home theater systems, would've been nice to see HDMI or optical but you won't miss it. Sadly there is no video out-put as seems to be the new way to make TVs now-a-days. Also, the remote isn't the greatest, but it does it's job. While it's missing some features like PNP, it shouldn't be a deal breaker for most.Bottom line; This TV can accommodate many different types of connections, and also supports audio out-put. Invest in a new remote, or see if you can use your DVRs.
As far as meeting expectations, I am completely satisfied with it. The amount you get for you money is a very refreshing thing. At $795 this TV is a must have for anyone looking for great value and a great TV. It's very easy to set-up, and very user friendly. Overall this TV is well worth the sticker price and will leave you gasping for air when you see Blu-Ray movies in HD.
For the price, you can't find a better TV. All in all this TV is a great.
