We purchased this tv for an extra room when the kids want to watch a movie with friends or my husband wants to watch a game when the rest of us don't. Overall it is a good tv and the picture is clear with great color. It definately doesn't stand up to our larger 42" Samsung flat screen though. If you are watching this tv straight on while sitting on the couch there are no complaints, however if you decide to sit on the floor to watch it or get to far to the right or left of the tv then the picture loses its color and fades out. This isn't the case with our Samsung. You can be anywhere in the room and you still see the great picture. I like to do my workout exercises in that room, but whenever I do anything on the floor you just don't see the picture very well. Great small tv as long as you are looking straight on.
