Got this TV less than a week ago, at an unbelievable price (especially considering this TV is new for the second half of 2010)

First, the basics: bezel is not too thick, and the TV set is very thin. Mind you, not as thin as those 1cm top-line Samsungs or LGs but for around 700 bucks I wouldn't get nitpicky. This TV is feather weight; as indicated it weights a bit over 30 lbs with the stand. Look is very clean.

Inputs: 4x HDMI is plenty, and component video doubles as composite (so you can't hook up both at once). PC (VGA) input supports up to around 1368 x 768 resolution. Have no idea why, but this is stated by the manufacturer so be warned. I suggest using a cheap DVI to HDMI or VGA to HDMI adapter (if the computer doesn't have HDMI already) for getting 1920x1080 resolution from your computer.

Picture quality: Excellent. Contrast, black levels all very good. Reproduction of colors is also very good out of the box, though there are plenty of menu items for tweaking the picture settings. Brightness is not a problem, as I am using this set in a fairly dim room and it hurts to watch on the highest brightness setting. During the daytime there is a small (but negligible) amount of glare when watching dark scenes. I am not a professional, but I do have experience with a number of different sets and technologies. Only caveat on picture quality: when dark, there is noticeable bleeding/clouding/leak from the LED backlight. This is only noticed switching between channels, or if you're playing content that is taking up less than 5% of the screen. Viewing angle is excellent side-to-side (nearly 180 degrees), but narrower up-down (you start getting into contrast issues).

Note on 120hz: don't buy this or any other TV only for the ClearFrame, MotionFlow, etc.

I have owned 3 different HDTVs before this one (Toshiba 56" 720p DLP, Viewsonic 37" 60Hz 720p LCD, and Panasonic 42" 720p Plasma). My living room, where this tv is used, is pretty dimly lit. We have our couch and recliner about 7-8' away from the screen, which is about perfect for this size screen. I use this TV mainly for PS3 games and blu-ray movies.

Picture: This is by far the best picture quality in my house. The screen is much brighter and crisper than the other technologies. This being my first 1080p and my first LEDtv I was sort of put off by what Andrew Jing mentions in his review here:

By Andrew Jing: **Note on 120hz: don't buy this or any other TV only for the ClearFrame, MotionFlow, etc. It makes filmed content (native 24p or 30p) look really weird. The classic example is the movie vs. daytime soap opera effect. It can make filmed content look like it was shot through a home camcorder. Obviously, if you watch live sports, etc. this is helpful, but just not for movies and filmed TV content. This model, like all others, allows you to switch off the 120hz feature.**

This is VERY noticeable and no, you do not get used to it like I've read in some reviews. This alone had me about to ship this TV back and invest in a Plasma. I read through the manual and found out how to turn the 120Hz down to 60Hz. Movies look much better now!

For PS3 games this TV is nothing short of amazing. I have a couple of "1080p" games (FFXIII and Dead Space) and they look 10x better on this TV than on my 56" DLP. I've also been replaying Dragon Age recently and it's like night and day between the two displays. If you are buying this set primarily for gaming you won't be disappointed.

Sound: It's okay.

Amazon service and shipping was excellent. TV arrived and set up was easy. Very disappointed in the speaker sound. Sounded like a cheap AM/FM clock radio. I was not sure what to expect out of one of these skinny TV's but this seems to be a common problem according to one of the sales reps at my local big box electronics store. I went ahead and purchased a Sony HT-CT150 sound bar to compliment the TV and it is awesome. The TV has an excellent picture and now a sound to match. Great black & whites with some good presets for sports, movies etc... If your really technical, I am not sure the HDMI ports on this TV are the 1.4 version. You may want to check with Toshiba. This has to do with an ARC feature that I learned about when hooking up the sound bar system but it was no bid deal for me. Family members over for Thanksgiving said the picture on this TV was excellent and looked better than what ever they have.

(read my update)

This inexpensive TV worked great for one month and the quality was reasonable for the price. However it no longer detects a signal from any device using an HDMI connection. I can only watch something for about 5 minutes before it loses a signal and warms me nothing is connected to any of the ports. I tested all the equipment on another TV and it works fine so I know it's the TV. Do yourself a favor and either spend the extra money it takes to get a quality display or buy a smaller one for the same price.

It's highly likely I received an unusual lemon but I feel like I should inform folks who read reviews.

(Update)

It turns out the root of my problem was I had the TV set to bypass the internal speakers using one of the settings on the TV. I learned that if you ask the TV not to use it's speakers it will also not use the display either, it's a bad software glitch I suppose. The way I figured this out was by restting the TV and when I turned off the speakers te display quit working immediately.

So now other than the exceptionally bad ghosting the display works fine and you can't beat the price especially if you are like me and only use it to watch movies once or twice a month.
