very good service from Abt
from Des Moines, IA
This is a really great TV. The picture is great from almost any angle and it is very clear. It has plenty of ports to hook in multiple gaming systems.The Viera store does not have many apps, but it is new so more should be added. It does not have a web browser. Netflix is very easy to access, there is a button for it right on the remote.The TV is WiFi ready, which means an adaptor must be bought to use WiFi because WiFi is not built-in. The internet works well from just the ethernet port or routing through a computer. The WiFi not being built-in is the only thing I do not like about this TV after having it for about a month.
Service and delivery comments:
ABT was great! They had the lowest price for the TV and they did not charge tax and the shipping was free. It was expected to take a week to deliver, but it arrived two days after ordering with standard shipping. The TV had no damage and I was very impressed with the speed of delivery.

Great set. Easy to setup with great picture. Add in the wifi adapter and you can access Netflix or any other movie site as well as social media accounts.
The TV arrived early.

Fulfills our needs, good value

Excellent picture.42" size just fits my console.Obviously a rugged piece of gear (see service/delivery comments).I had to check "poor" on some the options above, but "poor" is really too strong a word; it just was not as good as I had hoped.Sound comes from small, down-firing speakers and is a bit weak, since there is no wall to bounce off of. I am thinking about some 45-degree reflectors and may have to invent them.It does not have 3D; not a big deal to me.No wi-fi, but it does have an ethernet connection, and running the cable was no problem for me. (I prefer the cable.)We are Netflix subscribers, and it comes right in via a dedicated button on the remote.I love the DLNA; I can pipe music, pictures and videos from my PC through the network to the TV. With the digital optical connection, music is high-quality. Documentation says you must have Windows 7, but I have XP with Media Player 11, and it WORKS!If you have media on a jump drive, there are 2 USB ports. PC with VGA? Hook it up.I do not like the fact that there is no analog audio out, only the digital optical. I had to buy another receiver to use it.There is only one analog audio/video input, which could present a problem for some. Our old VCR is connected there.Quality and ease-of-use of the remote is fair-to-middlin'.There is not a big book with documentation, but there is a help menu baked in to the TV, and it is fine, so far.This TV is a good value.
Delivery was on-time, via UPS.The TV must be a hardy piece of gear, since the box it came in was almost completely destroyed by UPS, ripped open in several places with all the styrofoam broken into small pieces. It was so bad, I almost rejected the shipment, but I decided to try it out.It did have some cosmetic damage from the UPS shipment, which I saw during the mounting process.I have only the highest praise for the Abt customer service team. They are A Number One in my book -- on this purchase, and on prior purchases. Because of them, I will buy from this company again.My advice to all is, if you have a problem like I did, don't call them up yelling. Just tell them what happened. They WILL work with you to make you happy.
