Pros: Workhorse, good colors/blacks
Cons: Very basic, missing some slight add-ons that you might really miss.
The TV has functioned well as a good work horse for my and my family. Its colors are good and provides nice contrast. My wife and kids have the machine on constantly and that can warm up the family room after a while. Now that the price has dropped to closer to $1000, I would say its still a good buy. However, there is the imaging quality isn't up to par with some of the newer LCD/LED TVs that give that almost 3D image, you know the one that expresses more depth through back lighting. I have seen this TV priced at even $900 on sale, at that point I would say its a great deal. Its basic, but sturdy and good.
