So far sooooooo good! I'm getting used to the set now and what things look like from various sources and I'm still very pleased with the picture and the features. For those of you who ARE NOT Videophiles, and are trying to decide here's my non-expert take....
1) 1080p native (hopefully a hedge against obsolescence, but who the hell knows)
2) As mentioned, fairly slim and light for a 60 inch screen
3) The ability to save custom profiles with each input is really nice
4) The picture is slap your granny fantastic (biggest selling point to me)
5) Easy to switch inputs and easy to give them a label (ability to type in custom labels would have been better)
6) Built in HD Tuner for over the air broadcasts
7) Enough flexibility to tweak the picture without becoming daunting
1) PC (VGA) connection WILL NOT fill the screen
2) No memory card slot (for photos)
3) No cable card slot
4) No Picture in Picture
5) Freeze frame is pretty much (to me) worthless. Especially if you have a DVR. Now if they had a way of storing the freezed frame on a removable media card that would ROCK!
If I can get 5 yrs or more out of it, it will be worth every penny. I hope everyone else is as pleased with theirs as I am with mine. Now if you'll excuse me i'm going to watch HD programming till my eyes bleed, even if it means watching "Discovery HD musuem tours of Europe"
Don't worry about buying the wrong technology....you don't buy technology, you RENT it!
