We bought this to replace an Emerson that met an untimely death by dog. This 32" tv seems bigger than the one it replaced due to the horizontal to vertical ratio, and I like it more. The picture is very clear, vibrant colors, awesome definition, without the outline look some sets have. The sound quality is decent, but not extraordinary. We have it hooked to a sound bar not for volume but for experience. I think it cleans uo the sound quite a bit and equalizes it well. It is a full HD 1080 set , at a very affordable price. It hooked up fine to our video games and the HD is awesome on them as well as our FIOS. You get a high end tv with some bells and whistles for the price of an economy TV. It is a great find for a secondary lounge/playroom where you want a decent sized tv, but do not need an extra large flatscreen. It is too small for a large living room in my opinion, and has some issues with side viewing.
