I bought this TV because it was the ONLY 32" that would fit in my space (BARELY). From a function, feature, and value perspective I am pleased with my first 14 days. FRANKLY I think LCD TVs are 2nd rate next to CRT's - and without DIGITAL and/or HD programming the pixelation makes the picture look like junk. Of course that is channel by channel, and based on the service you have, and will become less prevelant as the market becomes more and more HD/Digital.
One unexpected reaction is my Guitar Hero III doesn't function with this TV. (WHAT??) -- Yes - read the internet blogs if you like this game, it is actually an issue in the program, and other GH versions are OK. Also there is a "calibrate lag" feature in the Guitar Hero Game that helped for me (but not for everyone apparently).
Also - These new TV's take a second or 2 to bring up a channel -- quite a pain for a quick channel surfer like me -- but again, this is not just an issue with this TV.
ALL in ALL - the TV seems fine - accepting the picture issue is due to my lack of HD/Digital Cable.
The channel surfing delay is inherent in most new TVs. AND the bug in Guitar Hero is a game issue.
The only thing directly about the TV that bothers me is the WEAK remote. From 5 feet away I have to point DIRECTLY at the sensor (not 5 degrees off).
They should have included a rifle scope to mount on the remote.
ALSO happy with WALMART as a retailer.
