I just received this tv this week and while it has bad points, getting 1080P at a reasonable price is keeping me happy. This is a great HDTV if you hook your PC up to it and use it as a monitor. I wouldn't use it for photo editing since it is proving difficult to calibrate. It's real forte is watching Full hi-def content online or for watching Blu-ray movies. 1080P does make a huge difference over 720P; no matter what you may hear. Of course, you also need a PC graphics card that supports 1080P. Even though my graphics card supports 1080P, my laptop LCD display doesn't. This HDTV does. The firmware in this HDTV is rather limited and if you are hooked up through a HDMI port , you will not be able to manually adjust the tint. Technical support confirmed that. They answered very quickly. You cannot rename the inputs as I could on my last TV. HDMI inputs will just stay HDMI1,2,&3. I suppose after a while, I'll remember them but it would have been nice to have the option to rename them to PC,Cable and DVD Recorder. There is also no way to adjust your midtones which some more expensive HDTV's have the ability to do.. Therefore, you may find yourself struggling to get the brightness and contrast right. There was also some back light leakage that shows up in dark scenes in movies. All HDTV's have some backlight leakage but this was noticeable. However, I liked that this HDTV swivels, which comes in handy in my living room. You cannot expect much for a HDTV at this price point but it was so reasonable, I added the extended Walmart warranty just to give me piece of mind. While I wouldn't use this HDTV for critical computer graphics work, I am very happy with this purchase.
