I researched long and hard before I bought this TV. When I saw it came in 1st in Consumer Reports' with more points than any other TV, that put it over the top. I was sure I'd be getting the best TV. Until I turned it on. The picture IS stunning. Very deep and excellent color. But, if something's moving - especially a scroll - it blurs as soon as it starts and half the time breaks up into a jagged mess. The picture size was another irritation. It started out smaller than the screen by about 5-6 inches all around. Then it blew up, like I'd zoomed in. This blured the picture and lopped off about 5-6 inches. No amount of calibration fixed these problems. Maybe I just got a dud. This TV was not what I was expecting at all. Picture Quality The picture was generally fine. Except for moving print. Then it blurred and sometimes broke up. Sound Quality Fine. Durability Can't really say. I returned it within a week. Design As good as any HDTV. Performance Depends. Sound - fine. Picture - fine. Unless there are words. Especially if they're moving along the bottom of the screen.
