Summary: I've been wowed by this Tv, no lie. I've gone through two standard definition tvs and a spare monitor just for the game. I wanted to to replace tha for 1 hdtv. You wont regret it. This is my first HDTV, tv period that I bought myself.
What a dramatic upgrade, first impressions are astounding.
Hooking up the stand to the TV was not a problem if you use the correct screw driver. I'm a noob at tool knowledge so that was a prob, because the size didn't fit, but I received help to use the right one. Manual directions a easy. Let's skip to the good.
I have a small box room, and this TV fits perfectly. Use this with an hdmi cable for both the Console and Cable Box. The setup prompt plays a little music when the Tv first turns on and is smexy.
going through the setup was easy, excluding wifi if you don't know what you are doing. A little experimenting with the WPS on the router and TV had me up and going. Note that your connection may effect the experiences. I have 4 bar according to the TV, and Apps flow pretty smoothly so far.
Apps: An abundance of apps that my appeal to your interests, even a fitness one. Oh, and this TV does have a Web Browser. It works, but the cursor is a bit tedious to move with. It's ok if you don't mind feeling like barebones. Has Amazon, Yotube, HBO, Netflix, Skype, etc.
Gaming: Picture quality is amazing with 360's hdmi. If you have been doing research on a good Led tv for Cable and gaming, then look no further. Imput lag is reported to be neglible. Around 30ms. I'm a Halo guy, and with game mode, I still felt some lag. I was just sucking (it was frustrating looking at the tv respond), but WAIT. If you want to reduce that lag, then turn off Dynamic Contrast (or was it eco sensor, both if it's not. Just mess with them). Game mode doesn't turn off everything. With that off, it completely did a 180 and I was sniping domes and 4 shotting fools like I was on my monitor or even better. Anyways what a big sigh of relief. Do not just depend on Game mode, as you will experience imput lag.
Sound: Was the least impressing experience, even for my small room. My standard tvs sounded better at times, but you'll put up with it. In some areas the sound is improved. I recommend "Clear Voice" for sound mode. It's hard to choose. You could always get speakers, but still the sound is not bad for my room. It just could be much better.
TV: Picture quality is great. Recommend movie mode as well and Warm 1 color. I swapped out my standard cable box for an old HD Box that we've had for some time. Might need a new one, because image looks foggy on some channels/choppy or grainy. The HD box I had was used on a Standard box for years. I only found that out recently that a certain someone was using a HD box for a SD TV this whole time -_-. Tis may just be a Cable box Issue, but even then, the problems don't appear frequently at all. The TV itself is an awesome buy for price and value.
Magnificent first TV and would recommend to anyone. Had it for about 3 days. 4/5, but since I can't rate that, I will be damn well glad to give it a 5 over a 4.

Best smart TV for the money
by BohnerTime on November 10, 2013
Pros: Easy set up. Great picture quality. Good sound and lots of features. I use my Smart TV as a computer monitor as well as for internet programming. Excellent monitor. The WiFi interfaces great with my laptops and other wireless devices.
Cons: Remote is a bit disappointing. When entering numbers or letters it is slow going for passwords and logging on. But that was solved for the most part with using a wireless mouse and USB port.
Summary: Being a Smart TV, it takes the guess work out of what features make up a good monitor. It has the 1080 pics. Proper resolution settings and refresh rates suggested ...
Summary: Being a Smart TV, it takes the guess work out of what features make up a good monitor. It has the 1080 pics. Proper resolution settings and refresh rates suggested and proper HD and digital inputs. and fills in the gaps with 720 pics programming and analog that's still out there.Walmart was selling these units on line for $329.00 last month.
