My evaluation is the same. My family members, for some inexplicable reason, for years have enjoyed and sought out almanacs, record books, etc. So, naturally, at Christmas and birthday, I try to get them as gifts. By last year, I became a convert to Amazon and avoided the stifling crowds, the "Sorry, we're out of it" for late shoppers like me and the looking for a parking place. I have turned to Amazon for success.
I normaly don't write reviews (yep, I'm one of those people!) but felt compelled to because I made this purchase based off the numerous glowing reviews I read here. I was very unhappy with this tv. First, the picture was not at all up to the standard I expect for a 1080p. It was purchased to replace a 7+ year old 720 tv and the picture was no better. Everything looked as though it was shot in soft focus. Messing around with the manual controls made it a little better, but nowhere near the crispness and clarity of other similar models in this size range that I have seen in person. The auto adjust feature was basically worthless. Next, we had set it up through our cable box and it appeared that there were three different aspect ratios being transmitted, but the tv wasn't adjusting the image size to match the screen making it so that we had to go in and manually adjust each channel to get the size we wanted. Once again, our old tv had no problems with this, but this one did. Maybe we just didn't spend enough time messing with the settings to find the auto adjust feature that would have worked, but it wasn't easy/obvious to find. Last, there aren't enough inputs. There are only two HDMI, one COMBINATION component/classic A/V, one USB, and then the traditional coax cable. I would prefer to have at least three HDMI and a separate component and A/V along with the cable input. It may be unfair to pin the two HDMI inputs on this particular model since it seems to be a standard now for these medium sized tvs, but none the less it was just one more reason why it went back in the box and back to Amazon less than 30 minutes after coming out.
I used it to hang a clock on the wall. The clock is light weight and I did not want to drill holes in the wall. I used only 2 strips vertically on each side at the back of the clock. It took a couple of minutes for the whole process and 3 days later still holding firmly.
