OK, so my wife and I spent years in Africa as missionaries. We never really considered a TV to be a necessity, though it was nice to have. When we came back, we rediscovered football and basketball, and we got Netflix. This Christmas we decided to enter the 21st century. We got what we thought was a small basic HDTV. We were amazed. The picture and colour are incredible. It is perfect for sports. Knowing what I know now, I wish we had got wireless, but there are workarounds. Bottom line: we love it. This is an amazing TV for a surprisingly good price.
While shopping in a giant store and seeing the various TVs next to each other, we thought 40" would be tiny. It is not. It is the perfect size for us. The picture quality is incredible as is the color. The only reason we thought we needed a new TV was to watch sports. You can see drops of sweat trickling down Cam Newton's (Go Panthers) face and the pores in his skin. It is not a smart TV, so we still have to watch Netflix and Amazon Prime through the Wii. Besides that, we are very happy.
