I was weary buying this television at first because I had never heard of the brand. Luckily knowing people that work in the store that sells this brand I was ensured that it was a high quality television. We love the high definition. The picture is so bright and clear you can see sweat on the players in live games. I have had this television in my huge living room in my house and now in my small living space and it has worked out perfect in both spaces. In my recent move I have yet to hook up any surround sound and the speakers and sound have not let me down. The only downfall to this television is the lack of input spots. I have multiple consoles, dvd player, and cd player with surround sound and w/out all of the places to plug it in I can't have everything running at once. This however is one of two flat screens that I own and the other model is older and has one more import. This issue may be that my electronic devices are not caught up with modern technology and I am running more cords than need be?! I would still highly recommend this television to everyone. It is a great value as well! Picture Quality Beautiful crystal clear picture. Sound Quality The sound is great. I don't expect much out of a tv when most people run surround sound systems, but even without I am not disapointed. Durability It's been hauled in the back of moving trucks without its box and is still blemish free and working great. Design Beautiful and sleek. I love the design of this television. Makes my living room look very modern.
