Off angle example
Coming from a 47" LG IPS panel TV, I'm was really concerned with VA panel poor off angle viewing. But after comparing other high end/expensive brands (SONY, Samsung), I found the TC-55AS680U had the best off angle performance for VA panel at the lowest price point (I found an OpenBox @ $647.99). FYI, the box will perfectly fit a 2nd gen Prius.
