My husband got this from his step father over 10 years ago and it is still the best TV we have ever owned. There has never been a major problem or repair . The picture is clear and color perfect. It is simple to use with no complicated directions. Although it is a little thicker than the newer models today it is a great HDTV. The only complaint is the price we paid for it was exhorbitant compared to what you can get for the same amount of money today. Not planning on getting rid of this TV until it dies in the living room. Most reliable television we have ever owned. Durability It has lasted over 10 years with 5 children and 2 adults using it daily. Performance Turn it on and it works with great sound and picture quality . Set up with our HDTV monitor from comcast.and you can bring the sports and movies right into your living roon.
