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.

this thing is awesome. dont believe the negative remarks. as with pretty much any product on the net, ull find the ppl that dont know much about the things they buy complain. this thing pretty much hooked itself up to the net and my pc. no probs at all. the picture is killer. the sound isnt the fullest(to be expected from such a thin tv). the remote and ui is superb. buy these while they are a steal. or i will...

I like all aspects of this TV. I just am uncertain of the whole wifi claim. I thought I could access the Internet but haven't figured that out yet. Sound is definitely good as well as picture. I'm very satisfied!!!

The TV is great. Good picture, high def, everything works, including the wireless. It is, however, wireless via usb dongle, not built in, which I didn't see when I looked at the description, and the dongle is easily the most limited range receiver I have ever seen. I had to move my wireless router from my bedroom to my guest room because the signal was being received so poorly from 25 feet away. Sad, but it still works, and for the price, I can handle it.

However, the app selection is a total of 4, and you cannot add new ones. That sucks. You also don't get a full verison of Netflix on this app. It only shows what is listed in your instant queue. Bogus. Finally, the other three apps are all useless.

All in all, buy this for a very nice 40" HDTV, but if you're looking for an internet ready TV with apps, keep looking.

I am extremely happy with the picture quality, just AMAZING !!
It is not a LCD, it is not a LED, it is in between. Size is perfect for a 12 by 21 room like my sunroom.
What it is not great is the Media Connect feature, it tried to connect with the tv several times and it failed.
Just buy a HDMI cable and connect your laptop that way.

Overall, the TV is pretty good. The sound sounds a little hollow but it takes a while to get used to it. It has a problem where every once in a while the TV will shut off on its own. Very annoying.

Found function wonderful. Vibrant color and crisp detail, just as good as the Philips 55 inch I purchased two years ago. Extremely happy with purchase !!

Best picture of any TVs I have had.
Cannot get Media connect to work, but it is not why I bought it.
This TV is one replacement of three others (2 Sam Sung and 1 Toshiba) for my home.
The other two are also Phillips, 120Hz.
Picture is almost like three D
