I bought this tv in december last year(2009). I bought it cause i read a lot of reviews and liked what i read. When i first got it home i was very impressed with the picture quality and sound. The sound is very nice, clear and loud. The tv only has two hdmi inputs but it's plenty. I use this tv for gaming with my ps3 and watching videos through my western digital media player which i plug into the tv through the hdmi. The remote control it comes with is also nice, i remember reading somewhere people saying it was bad, I don't know what they were talking about because i find it responsive and well built. This tv also comes with audio out (red and white rca outputs) I use it to plug it into my home surround sound whenever i watch movies or play video games and it sounds fantastic Another cool feature is that this television has a pc input (RGB) i sometimes plug in my pc to watch pictures of my family and friends. The only bad part is that it can take a little long to start (like 3 to 4seconds) but its not a big deal, i think most tvs do that.
