I purchased this television to replace an ailing Samsung plasma that I'd had for about 10 years. The picture is bright and crisp, as expected from an LCD, but of course the blacks are not as deep as my old plasma TV. Still, the picture quality is solid, and it's about 10 pounds lighter than my previous 42 inch. I like the positioning of the inputs: you don't have to crush your cables when wall-mounting the TV anymore (which is what eventually killed my old Samsung).

The speakers are mediocre. They're a bit tinny, and when the EQ is set to amplify the lower frequencies the low end sounds very hollow. When using the audio outs, though, and running it through home theater speakers, it sounds great. My old Samsung had a little delay when using the audio outs that I'd attributed to my 20 year old receiver, and it turns out that it was the Samsung's fault. I'm very pleased with the RCA now that it's integrated into my home theater system, and use the TV speakers as a center speaker in the home theater setup.

Hard to beat this TV for the price.

UPDATE: ...And after 9 days of use, 1/2 of the LCD panel died. Amazon would have accepted the return, but I tossed the original packaging. Crap. Called RCA and they're sending a tech to my house to fix it in a couple of days. I'm disappointed, but I'll post how the repair service goes.

UPDATE ON WARRANTY SERVICE: Since I'm an idiot, I just assumed Amazon wouldn't send out a replacement TV without me sending the return first. Of course they'll send a replacement out as long as you return the other TV within 30 days, so I'm using the packaging from that TV to send back the defective one.

Very nice TV. Great picture quality, and even better sound. I usually don't expect much from built in speakers, but I have to say the ones on the RCA are impressive. I mounted the TV to the wall, and connected my HD box, and have no complaints. Sports, particularly hockey look and sound great! I would definitely recommend this TV to anyone looking for good value at an affordable price.

I've had this TV for a week now in my living room and have been impressed. I have a 46" Sharp LCD that I can compare this to (which cost a lot more), and this RCA stands up pretty well next to it. Picture quality is really good, sound is clear, menus are easy to use, remote is quite nice, and I've yet to find any problems. I was able to setup my Tivo remote to control this TV without any issue.

Not to get off topic, but I'd previously purchased a TCL 40" from Amazon and sent it back due to the horrible sound, no universal remote seeming to work with it, and annoyance with the on screen menu. This RCA has none of the problems the TCL had. That could be why I'm extra happy with this TV. Granted, it's only been a week... but I wanted to set some minds at ease that are considering this TV.

I really feel like I got a great deal for my dollar. Right out of the box, it was very easy to set it up. My roommate and I put the whole thing together without really having to read the manuel (we glanced at it to make sure we were doing everything right, and we were, it was all very intuitive).

The picture quality is great, not overblown like the TVs in the store are (they're trying to showcase how bright everything is, but the color balance is actually way off).

The sound is pretty good, not the best. The way our living room is set up, we don't have the TV against a wall; there is open space behind the TV. I think that's why the sound isn't very good because there is no wall to deflect the sound toward the audience. But, if I just turn up the TV just a little, I can hear everything fine. One thing I learned is not to mess too much with the pre-installed sound settings. I tried this and then the speakers would get all fuzzy when there was a lot of bass in the audio... like the speakers would rattle inside the set or something.

All I gotta do is find a good set of external speakers to shoot the sound forward instead of out the back, and I'll be set!

I would recommend this TV for anyone. It's a great deal and a great size TV for the living room.

I ordered this t.v. based on all the positive reviews. Some will say never to pay attention to a review but when you're buying merchandise online, sometimes you rely on customer reviews.

So I ordered this t.v. 2 months ago for under five hundred dollars. I have it hooked up to my surround sound and bluray player. We don't care for satellite or cable so we use basic rabbit ear antenna which picks up all the local HD channels. I also have a pc that I built to the RCA to view youtube and other internet content.
OTA channels look amazing. Bluray movies blew my mind. The detail that this t.v. can produce with bluray content is jaw dropping. HD videos from youtube and vimeo also shocked me. Just amazing quality. The remote is nice and just about any universal remote will work with this t.v. The sound is good but while watching basic t.v. I don't need loud audio. While watching bluray I do turn up the sound but through my surround sound.
Anyway, my neighbor came over to check it out one day and he couldn't believe 'RCA' could make such awesome tv's. He actually has a more expensive Sony (think he paid $1000 for his 46") and he thought the quality was the same.

Just want to say that I always try to get the best bang for my buck with anything that I buy. Many items that I get are usually purchased online so I do rely on customer reviews.
I'm extremely satisfied with the t.v. and highly recommend it. My wedding videos look beautiful and showing them to future clients on this 46" is going to be awesome! jmzfilms.com
