Had it for a month now and it is good so far. I choose it over the Sharp and LG models because I like the SD picture better. The HD picture is awesome and to those people out there that say the 120Hz isn't noticeable I say watch a Blue-Ray DVD. It's quite noticeable to me. The only thing I don't like so far is the sound quality with the built in speakers. Anyways it's a steal at $1700.00. The closest TV to it that I like or would slightly even prefer is the 40 inch Sony XBR4 at $2200.00, but after a lot of side by side comparison I just couldn't justify paying the extra money.

Had it and returned it. The picture quality on non-HD programs is awful. Put this one back on the boat and return it to whereever it came from. Very bad product.
