I purchased this plasma TV as a Christmas gift for my husband. It is an upgrade from the 27" tube TV that we had for years, and definitely worth the investment. This TV does require you to upgrade your cable service to HD quality, connect to the box using an HDMI cord and adjust the settings on the cable box to 720i. We have Cablevision HD and the cable box is defaulted to 1080i, so the images were getting downsampled to 720 are looked very low quality. As soon as we adjusted the cable box to 720i, the images were crisp and clear. Setup was remarkably easy, and was plug & play. When you first turn the TV on, you are guided through a series of prompts to get everything set up. This TV has 2 HDMI connections, so if you plan on connecting several devices, you should consider investing in a good HDMI splitter. The sound quality on the built-in speakers is decent, but not "surround sound" or home theater quality. Overall, this TV is a great value for what you get and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.
