|With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. |

Top Customer Reviews
The clarity of this TV is astounding. With this TV, I can honestly say that I feel like I'm just peering through a window when watching HD content. There are times, three weeks into our purchase, that my wife and I exclaim "it's so clear!" while watching shows on 1080i. This is a big deal to me because we have a 65" Pioneer Kuro PRO-151FD in the living room, but now I prefer watching on this unit.
Blu-ray at 1080p is just beautiful and jaw-dropping. I played Ratatouille using a PS3, and the hairs on the mice and blades of grass are so detailed. I also noticed that the SD commercials seems clearer, and on some of them, someone with an untrained eye might mistake for HD if the pillars were not present.
I haven't hooked it up with a receiver yet, but the sound of the unit is more than adequate for our bedroom. We only go to "8" on the sound, which is animated as a blue circle on the lower left as opposed to a bar at the bottom of the screen. The "8" setting corresponds to about 1 o'clock, so you can go really loud if you wish.
I connected a PC to the unit and it can go up to 1920x1080 pixels at 60Hz, which is the max for my graphics card on that particular computer. Although it can display all those pixels, you can notice shadowing on the images and text. Not enough to give you a headache, but just enough to be noticed. If you do not plan on hooking a computer to this TV, then this is not a big deal. Actually, it's really minor considering you can watch Netflix and it does DLNA (accessing media files you share on your network).
I have this connected to my router via Ethernet, and even Netflix came out clear. I saw Dead LiKe Me and it still had that peering through a window effect. We watched Food, Inc.Read more ›
Speakers are not the best but a quick hook up to a real sound device solved that problem in about 5 minutes.
I would have given it 5 stars except for the speakers.
The menues are quick and intuitive and the remote is functional without a manual.
The whole TV out of the box without the stand is very light and easy to maneuver.
I mounted it on a wall mount, plugged it in, turned it on and was watching my Netflix in about 20 min, including packing up the trash.
This is a really nice looking TV. 1.1" thick, handsome bezel with integrated controls, with a unique chrome legged stand make this a stand out. The set also comes with a cord so you can hang it on the wall like a picture.
The picture on this set are beautiful. The picture is gorgeous with great color reproduction and deep black levels. The edge-lit LED backlight is great, except for some uniformity issues in the corners that can be noticed with an all-black screen. During normal viewing, this is not noticeable to me. The movement with the default settings is smooth and "video like", the same as you'd expect on any 120Hz or 240Hz, but what is great about this set is that you can customize the dejuddering and smoothing to a level of granularity that I've never seen before. Standard Definition TV viewing is one of the best I've seen.
The sound on this set is on par with other comparable sets, in other words, "meh". If you are an audiophile you probably already have a sound system to jack this TV into. If not, you might consider a sound bar or some inexpensive surround sound speakers. However, I've chosen to stick it out for awhile, and am content with the standard setup.
I'm most concerned with the number of HDMI ports, which this set has plenty of at 4. I wish it had separate component and AV jacks, but alas they are combined, so in my situation, I can't have my Wii and DVD player plugged in at the same time. This won't be a problem once I get a Blu-ray player.Read more ›
