I purchased one of these HDTV units two weeks ago. The picture is great and the internal audio is very acceptable. The HDMI inputs sense when there is a signal the TV automatically switches to that input.
The only cons are centered around the wireless connection and the fact that the external audio output is only available through its fiber 5.1, thus I can not use my current Altec sound system. The wireless is very sporadic including fact the system wouldn't work with my Netgear WNR2000 router. I purchased a replacement Linksys WRT160N and the TV finds the router but Netflix has a difficult time loading. I am still working with the Philips wireless folks, who are very professional to resolve this issue. Interestingly I can use my laptop plugged into the PC input and watch Netflix without interruption.
I would consider purchasing the TV again.
9/14/2011 -- After working with the Cisco Linksys wireless router support personnel we successfully connected to the internet and now receive both Netflix and VuDu streaming videos. During these issues I found out this in a 2010 model and there is a newer 2011 model.
