Pros Cons
  • Picture quality is superb
  • Not a smart tv, only 2 HDMI & not ARC to send audio back to your AV through hdmi
This is a great TV if u are looking for picture quality and that's all. I have Xbox/ps3/Wii/apple tv/bluray all with smart features so not having smarts in the tv is fine. After calibration the picture quality is superb at a good price. The cons are that it only has 2 hdmi and for audio u need to use the optical out to your AV. I got a monoprice 4x1 hdmi switcher which works great and I don't mind using optical out for audio out. Design is very nice, features there are none really, performance/color accuracy/black levels/value areal great!

If u are looking for great picture quality and not features this tv deserves a look.

My calibration;
