SmartTV is a waste of money IMO, I won't use any of that, I don't need 3D (not interested), thick is a relative term compared to my old 65" RPTV (LOL), and also my current TV only has 1 HDMI anyway (it's actually a DVI). Lowest model or not, it's most likely 10 times better than what I have. I will be getting a new AV Receiver for HDMI switching anyway.
Really the only thing I am concerned with is picture quality (again, it's probably 10 times better than the 10 year old Mits 65" RPTV), and off-angle viewing, which admittedly is what I'm most concerned with regarding this set. The price is right as far as that goes.
