I purchased this TV online at Walmart.com on 11/23/12; and, with free shipping, it was delivered 6 days later on 11/29/12. I researched this TV for 2 months and I couldn't be any happier with my decision. The picture is incredibly good and, with the Surround Sound turned on, it takes TV viewing to a whole different level. I am a huge sports fan; so I set the AV mode to Sport, the Picture mode to Sport, the TruMotion to high, turned off the Energy Saving option, and tweaked the Advanced settings until I had an incredibly good picture. I also set the Audio Mode to Sport, and turned off the Clear Voice option because the Surround Sound only works with the clear voice off. I can't understand why some people have complained about the volume. I have the TV connected to a Cablevision high definition cable box using an HDMI cable that was supplied for free by Cablevision, and I control the volume using the Cablevision remote. With the volume at 12, it is borderline too loud, and it will go higher than 50! One bit of advice; the Owner's Manual that is provided with the TV is inadequate; at 35 pages long it is more like a quick start guide. The complete Owner's Manual, 79 pages long, is on the CD that is supplied with the TV, or you can go to the LG website and download the complete Owner's manual, as I did, which is what I used to set up my TV. I give this TV my highest recommendation!
