The picture more than meets my expectations except for off-angle viewing, which I knew in advance would be an issue.
I know that this is an old model of TV but I am still very happy with my purchase.
***An oldie but a goodie. I doubt you can find anything in this price range that will match its performance. Especially for large panels - 75". A lot of Plasma owners have commented about the difficulty in moving from their Plasma environment to the new 4K world. Understandable. The off-angle viewing, which you know, is not that stellar. But once you dial in your settings, you get to enjoy this "beast of a TV" with a wide variety of content.
Hockey is a gas with this set. The last Pens/Caps game was moving so fast, it was hard to keep up. I mean, up and down the ice at a furious pace. Golf (without banding) is fun to watch. The recent Masters showed all of its colors in true splendor. Basketball playoffs are heating up and baseball is in full swing. And of course, 4K content, especially from Netflix, Amazon Prime & Google Play movies. I find that the "native apps" provide the best picture quality but other folks love their streamers.
Lastly - OTA or "Over the Air" antenna broadcasts, especially in 1080i are breathtaking. No compression. To paraphrase Jimmy in Goodfellas right after Henry's first heist...."It's gonna be a good summer!"
