Pros

3D image response is excellent - TV, video game and Blu-Ray disc content alike produce bold, eye-popping visuals comparable to a cinematic 3D experience

1 agrees

LED picture quality is fantastic - display is remarkably bright with rich, vivid colors incorporating bold distinction between similar hues without bleeding of blurriness

1 agrees

Initial setup is fairly easy to configure - unit comprises a helpful on-screen menu that walks users through necessary configuration settings, ideal for inexperienced consumers

1 agrees

Much less prone to glare issues than competitor Plasma screen models - ideal for users with a large amount of natural light entering their entertainment area during the daytime hours

1 agrees

Tru Motion image processing feature provides smooth, artefact-free visuals - ideal for live sports and action content that is prone to blurring and pixelation issues

1 agrees

2D-to-3D up-conversion works surprisingly well - works quickly and effectively to give high-quality 2D content a "fleshed-out" appearance

1 agrees

Included 3D glasses may come in additional color schemes, including a common White/Orange aesthetic - a fairly pleasant surprise for most users expecting the standard back color

Cons

TV is seemingly prone to various amounts of "input lag" depending on content type - can be tamed through extensive settings adjustment, but may cause considerable frustration along the way
