I bought this TV to replace my 19" Magnavox that I have had for years. I decided to upgrade and picked this TV. Hook up was easy and quick, with all ports easily accessible. I was able to hook up a home theater system, Paystion 3, Palystation 2, and the cable within minutes. Once I turned it on, I was hooked on the high quality of the picture and the sound coming out of the speakers. When the video games are turned on they have a new life. I now know why I was told that you needed HD to get the full quality of the Palystion 3. Even though this is a LCD TV, it does not have the pixelation that I have seen from other brands while watching high speed programs such as football, or soccer. It may be that the other TV's that I saw pixelation on were lots bigger (55" televisions), but I like watching this TV better than the older tube models. I do reccomend this model and brand if you are looking to upgrade or replace your TV.
