3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the lighting price, not full price, January 8, 2011
By 
Currently this set is used in my bedroom for some minor TV watching, football and cartoons. It works for all these as long as you aren't expecting a great picture or sound.

Pros:

Great price at sub 300 for a 42" tv.
Amazon shipping was fast and cheap as always

Cons:

Very limited menu options for customizing picture, Reds are extremely bright, blacks are very dark w/ low detail
low number of available inputs
Sound is acceptable but nothing great
The plastic base is garbage.
The "fit and finish" doesn't look like it was really finished
The remote has some good functionality (Sleep mode!) but feels cheap and poorly laid out

Overall at the 300 price I would buy another one and would give this a "Buy" rating. at anything over 350 I would pass on this purchase and spend a few more dollars on a higher quality set.
