I really like this TV so far, especially for the money, with only one real complaint I'll note below. First, the Likes: plenty of available connections. Contrary to some other reviewers, my version of this TV does indeed have 4 HDMI inputs. The company must have switched from 2 to 4 inputs, or vice versa, at some point during the manufacturing process. Mine was made in June 2012 per the label on the back, so it would be interesting to see when those with only 2 HDMI inputs were made. It also has separate component and composite connections, which is nice for connecting older devices. The base swivels, and is solid and heavy and made of tempered glass, which I really like. This TV also has a good remote control, and the TV itself looks sharp with it's very dark and low-reflectivity screen. As for Dislikes: although the overall picture quality is excellent, it does have some clouding/flashlighting uniformity issues in low-light situations. I can improve it somewhat by turning the brightness down, but I can't get rid of it completely. It also has no adjustment in the menu to control the backlight other than to put it into energy saver mode. However, that seemed to negatively effect the noted low-light uniformity issue, and it also makes the picture less vivid, so I leave it in Dynamic mode. Finally, it has no ambient light sensor, and the sound could be richer, but I guess you can't expect perfection at this price. I was able to find out who makes the display unit itself by looking through the vents on the back of the TV and spotting a label with a part # on it. It is a Samsung, so it was good to see the manufacturer using a top-tier supplier for it's displays. Overall, I'd rate this TV around 4.4 out of 5 stars.
