I purchased this television for myself as a Christmas Present and I am so glad that I did. It has a wonderful picture and it looks way more expensive than it was. I was going from a television I had for approximately 12 years and was ready for the clear pictures of these new tvs. I put everything together by myself! The instructional manual was spot on, if I had any questions they were right there, with pictures to show how as well! I do not have cable or any of that and my old tv was only getting me 4 channels, well, I still don't have cable or anything but I now get 18 channels, that are as clear as day! I was sure anything would be better than what I had but this television far exceeded my expectations. I have my DVD hooked up to it and intend to hook up a Wii entertainment center/game system to it as well. I was thrilled with the price, the ease of putting it together, the instructions that made it go so easily and efficiently and felt real proud that I did it myself. I would very much reccomend this tv to anyone who wants a great tv at a very good price.
