Was super excited about this tv because i got a great deal on it. My husband hooked it up and 2 hours later the screen went black. So back in the box it went and headed back to Kmart. So I’m currently waiting on a refund since this was purchased online and there is no Kmart in Dallas and Sears would not refund this item. .
I purchased my tv via the Jimmy Kimmel Blue Light Special in November. I picked it up (literally - myself, a 5'2" woman... it is VERY lightweight) in store the next morning, and it has worked perfectly since then. As for the people that have had issues, I will address: for the volume to stop buzzing, you need to tweak it... don't leave it at the default setting. We went with dynamic, and it has not had any reverb or anything that has caused us to wince. Do the same with the image. Do not leave it on the energy-saving defaults, otherwise you will be underwhelmed by the picture quality. Our cable tv is hooked up via the HDMI cable, and it works just fine, just as all other HDMI hookups have. Our Chromecast has been the best part. I can be in the kitchen cooking, and if my son requests a movie on Vudu, I don't need to leave the kitchen to help him... I just choose the movie from my phone, press the Cast button, and voila, it appears for him in the living room, and I can continue using my phone for the recipe.
The drawbacks for us have been the lack of USB, RCA connector cables, and component cables, (but those are all going the way of the dinosaur anyway) and no programmable code for us to link our Xfinity X1 remote control.
This tv has been a very welcome presence in our house, and I have been thrilled with what it offers for the price we paid.
Like at least two other reviewers, our TV had video for exactly two hours before going black. I tried to return the TV to the store, but my KMart was closing and not accepting returns. I then tried the manufacturer, and after a long process they have authorized a replacement IF I PAY TO SHIP IT BACK.
This tv was bigger than i thought and that's not a bad thing. Just had to move some stuff around to place it on something. Watching HD content on it is so amazing. Seeing the movies i love on a screen this big makes everything awesome. Would i buy again? Yep because i got at at a Super Great Price thru the Jimmy Kimmel Show Blue Light Special. Kmart Rocks.
