I'd been shopping around for different types of large TVs for over a month and was going to settle on a 55" Sony LCD for $1400 until I got an email from walmart.com showing this TV for $1300, perfect for our large living room. I promptly went to RC Willey to check out how the DLPs looked. I was a little wary about the 60Hz refresh rate (since the refresh rate is such a big deal on flat panels), but after comparing a 60Hz to a 120Hz side-by-side of this type of TV, I'm convinced that it makes no difference for DLPs. It is huge. 3 days into owning it watching TV, playing games, and watching DVDs on it I am very very pleased with the purchase (I don't have any blu-rays yet). Picture quality is outstanding, but still not as crisply excellent as an LED, I suppose. You will need to place it on a table stand, it is not wall mountable. The TV itself doesn't really have nice features from the internet or anything (since it isn't internet-ready), but that isn't anything I really need. The blu-ray player I bought has internet, so whenever I activate my Netflix account again the blu-ray player will provide. The sound leaves much to be desired, as with most TVs these days, so I bought a sound bar to go with it and I couldn't be happier. Did I mention that it's huge? If you want a large TV for a good price, and don't mind the extra depth (compared to flat panel), this TV is for you. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it.
