Any issue, problems, etc to be aware of before I take the expensive plunge.
DougF: My son bought this T.V. 8 months ago when it first came out in July of 06. It is a great T.V.. There is no Banding or any Clouding issues. The SD IS GOOD. STRETCH MODE SD
4:3 OK, BUT NOT THE GREATEST. HD IS SPECTACULAR ON HD CABLE. DVD VERY GOOD AND P.C. THRU VGA AT 1080-P. I LIKE IT OVER THE SHARP 57". I THOUGHT IT GAVE MY A BETTER PICTURE AND IT WEIGHT HALF AS MUCH. IT IS HANGING ON THE LIVING ROOM WALL. IT'S LIKE BEING AT THE MOVIES. WE HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS. KNOT ON WOOD. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR PURCHASE.
