I must admit, for not being a "top of the line" tv, I have had this thing for 2 years, runs almost day and night for the most part, and still has a great picture and hasn't given me one bit of trouble. Got it at WalMart on sale for $150.00. Knock on wood. Who says you have to buy the biggest and baddest for it to be the best of everything? Plus with my Roku 2 hooked to it, it works great!!
