I just had a couple of observations about both the tv itself, as well as the process of buying it. First, I want to mention that I ordered this tv on an evening where the price was 1368...or close to it. Sometime during the night, amazon lowered the price to 1299 and this was the price I ended up being charged. To my mind, that's just doing the right thing. Many companies would have just charged the higher price and waited to see if I caught it and called. So, credit to Amazon, well done.

Delivery and packaging was excellent. The shipping company wanted to deliver several days after my expected delivery date. But, upon learning that this was the date given to me by amazon, they quickly amended the ship date. The tv arrived in perfect condition and the crew was pleasant.

I really thought I was going to return this when I first powered it up. The picture was pretty bad and even though the settings are quite far off out of the box, it was more than that. But (and I'm not clear on why), after it hit the two hour mark or so, it really came to life. It focused, and most of the issues were corrected by this brief warm up period. It only happened the first time, and now it's ready to go as soon as you power it on.

The tv itself is pretty solid as a budget led would go. Once dialed in, colors are good, picture overall is quite pleasing. This is a direct lit display coming in somewhere between edge lit and full array. as a result, it has good uniformity throughout and no light bleed on any edges. And, it does have a pretty thin bezel. The downside to the direct lit is the thickness. this tv is thick by todays standards.

I just want to be clear, it's not a high end set.

I bought this TV to use as a large computer monitor to use from my couch. Therefore, I have not connected it to the internet nor do I use any of the apps or "smart TV" features. To make one reviewer happy, I'm reviewing the 65" version.

I just received this and finished setting it up. A few helpful notes:

1. One reviewer states that the remote is very sensitive to being pointed at a certain corner. This was not my experience. I can point the remote at the ceiling, floor, left, right and it still works (both the number pad and qwerty keyboard on the bottom). My TV is on a stand and not in a closet, which maybe the cause of that reviewer's problem.

2. I managed to attach the stand and lift it onto the table by myself but it was a struggle and would have been much easier with someone else.

3. Pilot Freight, the company which delivered the TV was an hour early, arriving at noon when my scheduled delivery was 1-3 PM. Thankfully the TV arrived undamaged. I did not mind but it was unexpected.

4. I was initially shocked at the terrible input lag. I don't game with this monitor but there was a solid 500 ms lag out of the box. It was frustrating even for basic web browsing/moving a cursor around. I turned on "Game Mode" which drastically reduced the lag. There is still some lag but it's acceptable for basic use. I'm not picky about input lag and I came from a monitor which is known to have some lag but this thing is significantly worse, and even I notice it. I wouldn't do any heavy computer gaming on it. I don't know about console gaming.

5. The settings out of the box weren't too bad.

I was debating this TV with the Panasonic TC-P65S60 65-Inch 1080p which is currently exactly the same price (~$1300). In my case it came down to the bright room, and the annoying reflections I had with my previous plasma (55 inch Samsung). This TV definitely has less glare, which is great for my environment. if you room is dark, the Panasonic probably is as good or better.

Everything works fine. The shipping by Pilot was flawless, and they set up the TV and took away the box etc. no problems. I took the advice of others and turned off all the video features, especially the light sensor which makes the screen too dim. When all is off, the colors are great. I see no problems with the blacks, but I am no expert. It is similar to my previous plasma though.
The best app is YouTube, which is not available on Roku 3(very important to point out!). O/w I agree that "SMART" TVs aren't really worth it. A basic TV with a great picture beats that any day.

I have tried most features, and they work fine. Streaming is excellent (wired/wireless similar). Set up is quite simple. 4 hdmi ports is very useful to maximally use features. Agree the sound isn't the best, but that is the same for all TVs. adequate for me.

The remote is kind of cute with a keyboard on one side, and standard buttons on the other. it can be useful for some of the onscreen menus. I do find it is hard to turn on/off the TV. you do have to point the remote a little more than others to get it to work. However, not a deal breaker. Wish the remote was backlit though. a pain when it is dark.

It is definitely a big tv, much larger than my prior. But perfect for my location. You will not be disappointed.
