So I bought this tv May 2011 and have been using it you could say probably averages 3 hours a day and be going pretty well so far. The thing that I REALLY don't like about is when you turn it on it flickers on and off for about 20 - 30 seconds and then goes away. I honestly wish I had just returned it because of that. I have never seen a tv have to do that before. I gave it to my parents for that reason but when I got home now it doesn't really bother me as much and I really enjoy watching shows on it ALOT more than my 32" lg tv. One other thing is that the buttons on the side of the TV don't even work! Be carful when you get a Hannspree TV to make sure the buttons all work. Sound Quality Even when you have the TV at 100% it can still not be loud enough. Durability So far it has worked alright for the last couple years. I just wonder how much longer that can be expected. Design Standard flat screen tv design. No wow factor to it.
