My wife and I bought this TV to replace our 32" Insignia LCD set, which is going into our guest bedroom. Setup was a fairly painless process. You just need to screw the base on, remove the plastic and all the annoying stickers (the hardest part). It comes with a 2 pair of 3D glasses and a easy-to-use remote control with a neat rubberized-grip edge. The User Manual is simple and straightforward. There is also an easy Quick-Start guide. The factory default picture settings are a little harsh, so we adjusted them The 3D effect is marvelous. The 2D to 3D effect is not so hot. We couldn't see much difference, but who cares really, because I doubt if anyone would really use it. The internal speaker sound is lacking (which I knew it would be), so we bought a Pioneer VSX-821-K (3D ready) A/V Receiver. Our Sony 3D-Ready Blu-Ray player works great using HDMI at 1080p. Movies using the Cinema frame rate of 24 per second work just fine. Our HD Cable TV converter box works good using HDMI at 1080i. The 3D On-Demand movies worked perfectly (Shrek 4 was awesome). Our (Windows 7) Computer is connected with an ATI video card using HDMI at 1080p. The picture is crisp and clear, and the Dolby 5.1 audio is wonderful! We have a TV tuner card and record HD programs. The picture is beautiful! There is only one issue. The front of the TV is reflective glass, not plastic, like the usual LCD unit. I guess that's so the 3D effect works properly. It makes it a bit hard to see the picture when there's bright light in the room. I wouldn't buy this TV for a Day Room or something with lots of sunlight. When watching movies, we turn the lights down a bit (for the proper theater ambiance), which works great. I'd highly recommend this TV to anyone (with the preceding comments in mind). We got it at about 1/2 of the MSRP, which is a great deal!
