Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I had this TV for over 4 years, not a single issue during that period. Bought it based on price and because it was a brand name, and was very pleased with performance. I primarily had it connected to computer, and didn't turn it on a lot, but the TV proved to be everything I needed from it. Great picture, plenty of connection options, easy to hang. The only reason I'm considering upgrading from here is because larger TVs with more attractive features (LED, 1080p, 120hz), have significantly dropped in price.
