We have had this tv for a little over a year now and still consider it a good tv. Picture Quality The picture quality is okay. Its not the best out of many televisions I have seen but it does the job. I like the clearest most crisp images. I'm sure if I wouldve spent more money I would have gotten the better screen image. The way movies are played looks a little weird. Almost like a documentary type look rather than professionaly shot, if that explains anything /: idk. But I watch most shows and movies in HD if I can. From time to time the screen will blink which can get annoying in the middle of watching something or an important part! Sound Quality Sound quality works great. We have surround sound speakers to really play up the sound when watching movies. Durability Our tv is mounted and thats much better to me than just letting it sit on a stand. It lessens the risk of it falling, but even if it was on a stand I'd trust it. Any tv if it falls hard enough will break, but I'd like to say this one looks pretty durable. Never had an issue yet. Design The design just reminds me of any other tv. Or, better put, like most average LCD's out there. As long as it doesnt look like a cheap piece of crap, which its not, then im okay with it. I love the big screen. Performance I think the performance is well besides the picture quality problem I was speaking of.
