" ...  Now let us speak on the subject of sound. ... Granted one may hook-up a soundbar or PC speakers or even a stereo system to enhance the sound to ones liking but its more than a mild annoyance when manufacturers have decided that attention to sound reprodution is no longer important.  ...  "

" ...  I'm not a tv expert on picture but compared to my last tv and being my first flat screen purchase it looks great. ... Instead of having the protective covering on the screen it was on the outer side of the tv and the clear tape that held the second sheet was sticking to the screen which I hated pulling off because you can see the plasma or what ever you call it effected. ... You know when you push on the calculator screen with your finger you can see what happens to the screen.  ...  "
