This tv may not be the slimmest model out there, but had been through 5 moves across the state, and is still hanging in there. Picture Quality Newer tv's have a much brighter picture, but the color reproduction is unmatched. Sound Quality I do not use the internal speakers, but am very happy that the volume control on the tv remote controls the volume on my sony receiver. Durability This tv has been moved to five different homes over the last 6 years and is still going strong. It has no problems being moved, but it is most definitely a two person job, as it is too big and bulky for a single person to carry. Design For the time it was introduced this tv has a great design, but with it being a projection unit, it is not nearly wall hanagable as the later designs. It must be put on an entertainment center or in a cabinet, as it is about 12 inches deep and weighs almost 100 pounds. Performance The tv takes a minute to warm up to full brightness, but once it is up and running you will be happy with it.
