    Glass panel front is VERY reflective, August 18, 2010

    The great picture and good viewing angles for an LCD/LED were the reasons I bought this for our living room. It did not disappoint with either picture quality or viewing angle. But the EXTREMELY reflective glass panel covering this beautiful TV made it virtually unwatchable even though it was angled away from the main window. The blacks were so black we could watch ourselves watching TV in the dark areas of the picture — especially while watching movies, which tend to be darker than regular TV. Many of the plasmas I’ve seen in the stores are less reflective, which makes plasmas viable options if you think you can handle a glass panel. The TV has been returned and we’re shopping for less reflective replacement.

    I got mine from a local store on sale for a little under $1600. That was about three weeks ago. And since then my entire family just can’t get enough of it.

    Picture quality is just great – and that’s expected. But what amazes me is all the extra functionality with what this TV is packed.

    1. Video streaming with Netflix. (It also has VUDU, YouTube, Picasa – but I did not try VUDU yet, and YouTube and Picasa work just fine, but I do not need a huge display to view some low resolution videos from YouTube). So Netflix movies available to watch instantly look great. Even those that are not HD quality. I must say that I have FIOS internet connection, so that must be also a component for high quality videos, but as far as this set goes – it does a great job.

    2. This TV has 2 hi-speed USB2.0 input jacks, and it recognizes not just flash drives, but also USB external hard drives – even with NTFS file format. I tried both – FAT32 and NTFS, and also external drives with additional power source and without it, – this TV recognizes them all. It can play your video files (and other media too) directly from external hard drive! And it supports multiple video formats, including Matroska H.264. It also supports external subtitles for AVI files. I did not test multiple subtitles formats, but SRT works great. It supports standard Latin letters languages and Korean. No other encodings though.

    I want also to add a few words about design. I use a TV stand that it came with, and it allows TV to be turned both sides about 20 degree – just enough to get to the USB jacks or to additional audio or HDMI jacks that are placed on a left side. The main ones are located on the back panel – which is also pretty easy to reach thanks to that rotating feature of a stand. The rotation is very smooth and requires no force at all.

    I can’t be more pleased with it.

    Other reviewers have covered the technical stuff, so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
    Pros: Outstanding picture quality in all modes, easy to use.
    Cons: Some screen glare, widgets not very useful.

    I’ve been very happy with the various presets and keep it in one of the THX modes most of the time.
    To give you some perspective, I’ve been in the video production business my entire career (30+ years)and the picture watching through my HD cable box is crystal clear. I’ve watched 1 Blu-Ray movie and was very impressed. I’ve watched football and there were zero artifacts during fast motion. The screen is a large piece of glass so there will be some glare, as is true with any polished surface. There is only slight flashlighting I’ve noticed when changing inputs but never during any programming, including really dark night scenes from the Blu-Ray.

    The audio is as good as the 32″ standard TV this replaced. There are different modes and settings, but it is not going to sound like a 500 watt system. Keep your expectations realistic.

    The widgets as of this review include weather, finance, a few games and others … too many to list but as far as I’m concerned, they don’t add much value. There are NetFlix apps like VUDU and YouTube which work very well. These are worth paying some extra. When I hooked up the Internet through an ethernet LAN cable, it automatically checked for updates…pretty cool.

    Aesthetically, the set is good looking and construction seems solid. All the inputs are located in one place on the back panel … no front or side inputs. There are cable guides so you can semi-hide the wiring. This works pretty well.

    In summary, I’m very happy with the picture quality, which is why I got this model. If you don’t see any updates to this review, nothing has changed with further use.
