I purchased this RCA HDTV through Walmart.com because it was a 50" for a great price and had decent reviews. It was meant to replace my 37" Vizio which has a great picture and good sound (which was to be moved to the bedroom). First off, the quality of the picture on the RCA doesn't even come close to that of the Vizio. Both were rated at 1080p, 60hz, but the picture on the RCA appeared pixelated and jumpy during action scenes. These problems never occured using the same HDMI cables for my Vizio. Second, the sound quality is poor. I expected this after reading some other reviews and I would have to agree with them. It is up and down often with louder background music versus the actual dialog, making it very difficult to hear. All this being the case, I returned the product to Walmart today. One positive is that the return process was extremely simple and I recieved a full refund, so if you really wanted to test out the product for yourself I don't see it hurting. There are many decent reviews so perhaps I just received a defective TV, but regardless I am going back to my Vizio for now and will most likely buy another one in the future.
