We purchased this television about a year and a half ago. We chose this television because it was an upgrade from our previous space hogging television that we no longer had a space for. This television fits nicely on our dresser in our room. It was a cheaper price then other televisions, but with modern television features. We could have gone with a bigger and fancier television, but the price and quality of the Magnavox was just right for us. So far it has been a great television. I am constantly surprised how clear the picture is with the HD channels that we receive. The sports channels are especially clear. The sound is adequate, nothing special or fancy, but clear. When we watch movies, we do have to turn the volume up louder then we do for normal television watching. Sometimes it is a little shock when we switch back to the television channels and the volume is a lot louder. I would buy this television again. It has been a great for us.
