Waste of money and time.
on October 22, 2012
Pretty cheap for a 50" 1080p 3000:1 contrast t.v. right? Yeah, I had the same thoughts. Even with a few bad reviews (over the sound quality from the standard speakers, which were right on cue, you'd need a surround sound/external speaker setup) I still dove in after the "deal," however the phrase, "you get what you pay for," really fits well. I had this t.v. for a mere month and one week before it decided to simply shut off, with no warning, and wouldn't recognize any power whatsoever. If you are on a budget, but want a large flat screen, don't settle for this t.v. You'll want to spend the extra 100 bucks to get a better brand. (Proscan = R.C.A. by the way) If you want to get a good quality 50+" television, be prepared to spend no less than around 600$, because the quality under that isn't worth the money.
