I took the plunge today. BB has these on closeout and I got the last one new in the box. At the price they had it at, it was worth the gamble. The picture on high def looks good. SD isn't bad on standard mode, but obvious begins to look worse when streched to fill. The DVD picture looks really good, I was pleasantly suprised. Blacks still suck, but with my kids getting to watch their DVDS on it and often getting left on the menu page when their done, plasma wasn't an option. Don't have anything hooked up to it, but that was kind of the point of getting an all in one unit. Will probably keep it, but it does have some negatives.
1.) The remote sucks. Some times you get a great response and others, nothing.
2.) QAM tuner needs work. Mine picks up everything and so I'm getting 300 channels in HDTV mode, only most of them won't display anything. The delete channel system won't work. The main locals revert to the 2-1, 10-1, 10-2, etc... system, but the rest of the channels are number in a 107-0001 fashion. When I venture into those I'm getting movies channels etc... that aren't in my package but I tend to get freezes trying to go between them. Tried mapping them to the favorites buttons and when I pushed one it told me no HDTV channels detected. I couldn't get teh TV to rescan them, ultimately had to shut the TV down and start over. TV must scan all channels and wouldn't let you manually punch in the HDTV channels.
3.) When switching between HDTV and TV, I can use the TV button, but to go back to HDTV I have to select it in the menu. Why not put an HDTV quick button (an HDMI button would have been nice too).
4.) DVD picture setting same as TV setting. I tend to watch TV in a lit room and DVD'd in the dark, so it would have been nice to select these setting independently.
5.) When watching TV speakers are loud. I usually set the volume at 6 out of what looks to be 100. This is not a negative, but what is, is the fact that I have to set the volume to 50 when I watch the internal DVD player.
I may go back and get the 4 year warranty as even with it, the TV will cost about what I could have gotten it for on the internet. It looks like I'll be in and out of the menu a lot on this set.
