Pros

Excellent 1080p HD picture quality - color contrast is considerably clear, with bold black levels and vivid, distinguished hues

1 agrees

60Hz image processing provides excellent, artifact-free picture - works especially well on live sports and action content with minimal differences to 120Hz processing

Cons

Rear connectivity panel feels flimsy and unseated - many users report issues when detaching or attaching I/O cables, causing the entire unit to shift

2 agree

Built-in speakers are of fairly poor quality - audio outputting severely lacks low-end presence and has a relatively low maximum volume level

1 agrees

Many users report broken capacitor issues just as the unit is coming out of warranty - this may result in a fully-dysfunctional product after no more than 2 years of use

1 agrees

Unit does not provide a dedicate optical input - may cause difficulties amongst users without HDMI-compatible devices

1 agrees

Gloss black bezel is seemingly prone to glare issues - users with rooms that encounter a lot of natural light may wish to seek a less-reflective unit
