Excellent TV and great value!
 I am very pleased with this TV. This is absolutely beautiful picture that is much more natural than a pixel Rato (I just made up that word) or Plasma LCD glass. Do not get me wrong, I like the image produced by the LCD and plasma, but at the same time, you will not find one of these 60" (or more) for less than $1000 ... especially with HD displays 24p and 120Hz update. Why This TV is great value ... you get a lot of standard display with a huge screen size for a great price.

PROS: 1) the extremely natural picture (after some tweeking of course) 2) the on board speakers are actually pretty good, although I still connected it to my Klipsch surround sound (another highly recommended brand) 3) the automatic connectivity theme makes it very easy to connect and change inputs 4) it's very easy to setup and get the colors right (use the perfectcolor feature) 5) although the screen is huge, while watching shows in HD or Blurays the TV doesn't miss a single pixel, the picture stays smooth and natural (the color is very deep and thorough, but make sure you tweek it right, which is easy to do). Even basic SDTV looks pretty good compared to comparable LCD and Plasma competitors.

CONS: 1) THE REMOTE SUCKS (I hate everything about it except the fact that it lights up when pressed) 2) The viewing angle is pretty narrow if you want to keep the picture and color in complete focus. The TV likes to be viewed straight on with a minimum of about 8 feet between you and the TV (although you can see it pretty good at angles that aren't too extreme) 3) it easily catches reflections from lights, windows etc. on it's plexi-screen (although Plasmas do the same thing, in my opinion to a worse amount)4) there is a lack of some inputs (aka S-video) but you can easily buy adapters.

After the TV for a couple of months for a HDMI started flickering pretty bad. I thought it was my HDMI cable so I bought another one. He did the same after a week. So I entered my original cable 2 HDMI inputs and it worked fine. It seems that my HDMI connection slows by dying on me. I do not harbor any stars for this, though, because I bought the TV from a man who has purchased new and used a month before selling it to me because of lack of finances. Knowing him, I would say that probably was not his fault if the connection is short-circuit current (I checked the blog and I have not found other problems along this line). He probably tried to connect a USB cable to the HDMI input or something stupid like that. However, I only need two HDMI inputs anyway, so all went well ... there was no reason to dock any stars.

TOTAL: This TV is easily the best purchase for any set of less than $1000 ... and I would say $1200-1300. If you have enough space to allow the wall with this sit, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Nice for the price
 I just got this TV, and I was very perticular the ability to communicate in 3D. I got the starter kit and at first I was going to write more, but after I wired the right way. WOW! It 'very deep. The color is excellent and the 3D was like in the movies.

My wife thinks it nuts, because she spends her time upstairs on the Samsung and I'm down on the color Mitsubishi 60". I looked at the ocean and the Sea in 3D, and so good that I spent hours watching it. Now I need to have Blu-Ray, so I can watch DVDs from other 3D. I highly recommend this TV. You should invest in a starter kit for 3D in 3D, but it's worth it ...

Oh Yeah. Its very light weight. The shipping company in Michigan was very good and that television has not only worked, but no scratches or defects on it. I was skeptical at first to order on the intranet, but I have excellent products on Amazon with all faults or problems.
