My boys had a television in their room and it had went out. I found this television on sale. My 6, 7, and 8 year old boys didn't need a expensive television. So I bought it only because it was on sale and it was really cheap. The only expectation I started out with was that it turned on and had a remote. I got home and pulled it out of the box and realized it's a super light television. I was surprised because I expected it to be heavier than it was. I honestly think my grandmother can probably move this television around with no problem. The remote isn't the greatest quality it's light and it does feel like a cheap remote. But for a cheap remote it hasn't stopped working yet. My boys have thrown it, gotten it wet, and has really put this remote through h***. Basically for as cheap as it feels and looks I didn't think it'd last this long. It was really easy to setup and connect my sons cable box to it. There was no long setup process or anything, basically a plug in and go sort of thing. When I plugged it in and changed the channel to the appropriate channel I was blown away by the picture. I did not expect a good picture at all. It's bright and crisp picture. It actually has as good of a picture as my $800 television in my living room. The sound at first sounded awful. But after going into the settings of the television and changing it to the surround sound option it sounded great. I have their television kind of caddy cornered in their room and it bounces off of the wall and has a nice loud sound with the surround sound option. I'd recommend this television to anyone looking for a television for your child or a bedroom television. I don't think I'd use in the living room unless you were in a small apartment or house.
