After my old flat screen was starting to break-- getting red lines on the screen and cutting out-- I was considering getting a new TV. I also did not have very much room for it. One day I woke up and found out that something had chewed the cords up and it would not turn on, then I went to feed my pet rats and they had chewed out of their huge cage! They had chewed through the bottom plastic and got out and chewed the tv cord up! I found them in the dresser sleeping, and put them back in their cage. After I did that, I headed to the store looking for a new tv. After looking for a while, I found this t.v. at a great price. I bought the t.v. and took it home. It was easy to set up and getting the channels only took a few minutes. When it finally turned on and I could watch the channels, it was great! It had many different functions like "energy saver" and "crisp" plus it had a remote, unlike my old tv with didn't have a remote. Plus this t.v. had very good sound, It can be super loud or very quiet. I gave my old t.v. away to a friend who didnt have one. I would recommend this t.v. to everyone! I really like it! Good luck!
