Overall we're very pleased with...

Strengths: Best bang for buck in its class

Weakness: - NTSC sometimes ghosts, especially on sporting events and other high-contrast content - Some gain on screen means oblique viewing reduces brightness

Overall we're very pleased with our unit. With multiple zoom and fullscreen options and a very affordable (compared to plasma) price, this is an excellent deal. The picture is comparable to many of the plasma TVs we saw, though not as bright off-axis, especially vertically; it's imperative to get the right stand for this model. (We found out by accident when we bought exactly the right sized...

I did my research and knew Sony...

Strengths: The best picture quality and superb sound

Weakness: Reliablity

I did my research and knew Sony had problems with this technology. Sony denied any problems, but the forums were loaded with the same scenerio. Turn it on, it turns itself off. It is either the "light engine", or the fan won't come on. No fan, no light, so it turns itself off. Sony has the best warrany! I have had a tech in 3 times. Two bulbs replaced. No charge. The last tech got the internal...

I have been enjoying this tv for...

Strengths: great picture resolution, esp. with dvds and high definition signals; awesome sound

Weakness: 'acceptable' level of resolution with non-hdtv sources

I have been enjoying this tv for the last three weeks, and for the price is certainly the wise way to join the big-screen and flat panel crowd. I bought mine at Best Buy for 2500, not counting the rewards zone dollar program which I can use to purchase a more recent version of dvd players - I believe Samsung has a high definition version which is now available. I bought another set for the den...

This TV exceeds my expectations in...

Strengths: Color, sharpness, sound, multiple inputs, quality, light-weight, price

Weakness: Black levels compared to Samsung DLP

This TV exceeds my expectations in every way. First, sound quality is superior to that of the Panasonic LCD RP and Samsung DLP RP. Picture is much better than that of the Panasonic and about on par with the Samsung. The Samsung has better contrasts though so night scenes become more vivid but somehow, at least in the show rooms, it seems a bit more pixelated. Also, the lamp on the Sony has a...

This set has an issue in the...

Strengths: everything is great when it turns on

Weakness: Design flaw

This set has an issue in the lamping system. After running for a few weeks, it refuses to turn on. No picture, just a buzzing sound.
