Yes, it shows pretty HD pictures... It's a nice set.
Yes, they are letterboxed as the set is 4:3.
No, they are not distorted as they are letterboxed.
It's now a new set, but for inexpensive HD, it's a real nice set unless you need a flat screen for the wow factor or you must have the "squeeze" feature for maxing res on DVDs. The set displays DVDs nicely, just not as nice as "squeeze capable" sets.
maybe you can help my sister's boyfriend. He has the same TV and loves it but he can't find the sleep menu. He believes there is one because a trouble shooting answer for why the TV turns off is the sleep mode is on. Typically this wouldn't be that big of a deal but he is one of those people that falls asleep with late night TV and would hate to have the TV get too hot.
