Pros

User interface is straightforward and easy to use - menu component is soft on the eyes and doesn't feel invasive

1 agrees

600Hz image processing provides crisp, detailed imagery - ideal for live sports and action scenes throughout TV, movie and video game formats

1 agrees

Excellent overall picture quality at the price point - HD imagery is clear and vivid with excellent control of brightness and contrast levels

1 agrees

Vertical volume indicator is an excellent feature - provides a logical alternative to horizontal volume indicators without blocking subtitles or status bars

1 agrees

Unit functions very well as a no-frills, high-quality TV - stripped-down feature set (minimal connectivity/adjustment options) is tailored to simple "plug-and-play"-style viewing

Cons

Automatic volume-levelling feature is fairly disappointing - provides little to no audible difference in audio level when switching from program to commercial

1 agrees

Internal speakers are underwhelming - severely lacking in bass presence with harsh, "tinny" overtones

1 agrees

Online details listed by the manufacturer are somewhat false - only 1 USB port, 1 component video input and no PC/stereo mini jack

I bought this TV over 3 months back at a great price. Had a 65 mitsubishi that was a good performer but this plasma's picture is much richer and the wide viewing angle without degradation is impressive. The contrast in the black/greys is outstanding and I feel real good about this selection, even though I could have gone bigger.

Sound is not an issue since it is piped through a sound system with DYNACO A-35 speakers.
