I bought this for my husband as a Birthday present for his man cave because he had one of those huge very old large screen televisions. It kept breaking down on him and I was tired of him trying to hold on to a piece of his past and throwing money away. So I went searching for a television that he would love and would help him grieve the loss of the big beast, (that's what I call that huge television he's attached to!). I wish I would've bought this television for our main family room instead of exclusively for his viewing. This television is absolutely amazing. I have never seen a better picture on a television. The picture is perfect and you even get an amazing picture when you connect your laptop to it. Other television screens look blurry when I hook up another device. He plays XBOX 360 on it and the game seems to almost come alive. I recommend this television over all others on the market. If you are looking to invest in a great television and get your money's worth, this is definitely the right choice.
