I wanted a second tier brand LED HDTV, and since I had purchased a small screen SANYO about 5 years ago for my boat with good results I had no hesitation buying the SANYO brand. So many parts of LCD TV sets are ubiquitous and I am sure many of the parts and pieces of second tier sets can be found in the higher priced brands.
This set is no frills; from the boxing to the instructions and the funky remote you know your are in bargain land. Setup was easy, the instructions are minimal but sufficient. I have a high-end Audio Setup (Harmon Kardan amp with Bang&Olufsen speakers) The outputs on the Sanyo are sufficient for full fledged home theater use. By the way, the Sanyo BUILT IN SPEAKERS are a major PLUS, they are far better than I anticipated; so good that I turn off the HK amp unless I'm watching musical special or an action movie with especially fancy sound.
After 3 weeks of heavy use I feel comfortable in recommending this SANYO TV.
Walmart had this model in stock for immediate pickup--I purchased the set online, picked it up 2 hrs. later.
