I've just bought it also. I've checked many other TV sets, and I liked this one in the end. I bought Emerson combo and returned it next day. It had sandy image, did not have head phones plug and had bad amazon reviews. But RCA 26LB30RQD has a picture quality comparable even to Sony, it's definitely better than Toshiba, in my opinion. It's not perfect, however, if you put the this TV on a table, about 2.5 feet high, and lay down on the floor, the picture will be a bit ghosty. Well. it's not a LED after all. The TV image is great from any other angles of view. I bought it for my wife in home yoga training, and actually, it's not a big deal to put it on the floor, when needed. It's not heavy at all. DVD works pretty quiet, but ejection and retraction is very slow, I mean veeeeery slow.
I just hope that it's going to work as long as Sony.
Menu has a dynamic contrast adjustment option (like HDR in photo camera), which is nice for shadow correction. TV has VGA, RCA inputs and RCA audio outputs. There is plenty of HDMI (4), head phone 3.5 plug, control panel for DVD on TV (a bit uncomfy, because it's on the side not on front of TV).
