The price of this television was right on par with what one would expect from a non top of the line model. But as an added bonus to most televisions this one also includes a DVD player built right into the side. At first I was weary of the slide in a dvd siedeways style of inserting a disc, but after a few times I became accostumed to it and it was fine. The picture quality is splendid, dvds play perfectly well and the remote responds like a dream. This is definitely a great product for its price. If you want to watch DVDs and have a nice sized tv without having the additional cost (or space taken up by) a dvd player, this television is definitely the way to go, you will not be dissapointed, I know I'm not.
