Man O' Man what a TV
on December 4, 2009
Ok I was worried because there wasn't any other reviews on this TV. Still took a chance cause how can you beat a 50" HDTV 1080P for $899. no shipping no tax.
Pilot delivered it and even offered to set up for me, but I wasn't ready for the setup so I declined.
Hook-up was a breeze. I have Direct-TV HD and used the HDMI hook-ups and connected the fiber optic audio to my Pioneer 7.1 channel THX receiver. I hooked up my Sony 400 disc DVD player also with HDMI and fiber audio line.
I placed my leather recliner 10 feet back. Got the remote and turned those suckers on. First I watched HD news and could literally count every blemish on the news people faces. Couric needs to get a new makeup artist.
Then I switched to Discovery HD, I literally jumped when a tiger chased an Antelope through the grasslands, hell you could see the spurt of blood as he sank them fangs. I turned on the DVD player and watched Scrooge and it was fabulous.
The picture was outstanding,so to test it further I turned all the lights on and opened the sun room shades at noon. The picture didn't change at any angle. No more fighting over the middle seat in this house.
The best thing of all is how little electricity it uses. I tested the usage compared to my old Samsung and it used three quarters less electricity. I saved enough money on the price that I bought the extended warranty and a blue-ray DVD player. I won't ever leave the house again! (PS I know some of you think the extended warranty is a waste but for $84. and my previous experience with Samsung it's worth it).
