- Panel looks very good when in 1080P via HDMI (other than a computer source, use VGA there) and in general looks clear and in focus on any typical 1080 feed. Not as good as some other more expensive TVs, but not poor.
- Super thin design was far smaller than any other TV I own.
- The tuner pulls in clear feeds of all the same stations in HD that all my other TV's that say they have a QAM tuner on them. So I am guessing that this TV does in fact have the QAM tuner as another SDer commented on.
- Standard VESA mount, which is nice after having a Vizio that doesn't mount that way.
- Most important for Slickdeals... PRICE. Still can't believe that I got this thing for just over 200 bucks. It's perfect for use in my bar.
- Outside of a good 1080 feed the scaling on this TV is terrible. The picture looks garbled and is not worth watching. This is more of a problem with the image processor than the panel in my opinion knowing how good 1080 feeds look.
- The edge lighting is a little brighter on the edges and can be seen on all black backgrounds. It's not distracting, but you do see it, which is the case with several edge lit LED displays.
- The colors are washed out when compared to my Panny plasma, but that may just be a case of my lack of a calibration tool or poor ability to calibrate myself. If no one else can calibrate I will try to do so with a THX DVD or something, but we have a few guys here that are offering to try to calibrate.
- The remote and side panel button controls are very poor. Simple things like switching input can't be easily done with the side panel. There is an input button, but pushing it once turns on the menu and pushing it again turns it off. You have to know that (I think) the volume up and down buttons act like the arrows to select the different input and then you use the channel up to select the input before the thing will switch. VERY POOR design here. should only have to keep pushing the input button. Just make sure you don't lose the remote or you have a switcher going into one feed like I do.
- Sound is pretty tinny, but was easily fixed with a soundbar. Mine did bypass the TV speakers when I plugged it in, but overall the speaker wires are able to be cut through holes in the back of the display to the left of the stand mount point. They are a black and red wire that are very obvious. Just make sure that you really never want to use those internal speakers before you cut it!
- This is just picky, but the iSymphony logo makes it look like a low grade TV. I think I could fool people about the quality better if I could get that logo off of there (any ideas?)
Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
