I've had this TV for over a year now. It has been a flawless performer and since it is a plasma, it looks good from any viewing angle. It does generate a fair amount of heat however. it's brightness is very good and colors are brilliant. It's only shortcoming is that it only has 2 HDMI inputs. These days that's just not enough. Sound is very good. It does have a SD card slot for viewing photo's. It's a great TV for the price. Just be aware that it only has 2 HDMI inputs.
