Ethernet functionality is a gimmick

Excellent picture, but sound, particularly voice and midrange, seems to be lost or fuzzy. Overall happy with it, but this audio aspect can be frustrating

Beautiful set. I get compliments from everyone who sees it. The speakers are pretty weak but you should be watching with a surround sound unit anyways.

Highly recommended.
