The most important thing for me was picture quality and this set delivered beyond my expectations. Time spent fine tuning the picture pays off and the ability to retain these and adjust only the current viewing is a great feature. Esae of use, connectivity and Style are all great to!.
Bad points:
Sound is a little under par but as I don't use the sound of the TV that dosent both me, I use a surround sound processor.
