I purchased this item on Saturday afternoon and returned it Sunday evening.
Overall the design of the TV was good, and I didn't have any complaints about the build quality of the unit.
Using a progressive scan DVD player (outputting 480p) connected via the component video cable produced very good picture quality.
I do not have cable or satellite service, but I receive great HD signals over the air through my rooftop antenna.
1080i broadcast HD looked great on this little TV. The picture was sharp, and the colors were vibrant.
Unfortunately I can not say the same for local stations broadcasting in 720p over the air. The TV almost acted like it couldn't keep up with the video signal. The audio consistently was a split second ahead of the video, and the video motion was not smooth. Scrolling ticker text was jerky, as was the motion of football players and racecars.
Had the 720p broadcast video been as good as the 1080i video, I would still have the unit.
Instead I exchanged it and upgraded to the 19" Philips unit, which is not suffering from the above problems.
