Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT BUY Have it for a week and am very happy with my purchase. Had some problems getting a good pic but was surprised how curtious and helpful customer service was to help. Now have a great pic and am very pleased. The only thing that has to be said against it is the legs the tv sets on. They do not steady the tv too well. Asside from that great buy for the money.
