Love the clarity of the picture and it has a jack for headsets.
This is our first HD tv and we are using it through a standard definition Directv box. We are finding some flaws in our TV and are quite disappointed. Below I will list the flaws. 1. Sometimes the picture looks like we are looking through a wire mesh screen. 2. Sometimes the screen has wavy lines in the images causing me to be nauseated. 3. Only 1 caption option works other than default and that is CC1 but as we change channels, the caption size keep changing size. It is not coming from Directv because we have an older box which doesn't have the capabilities for caption. Using caption with directv on this older box has always come from our TVS and in the 20 years we have been with Directv we have never had this problem. I rely on caption due to hearing loss and this just isn't working, when the caption goes small, I can't read it. And this can happen on the same channel, going from large capitals to small lower case.
This TV has a nice, clear picture and various options for preferences. After adjusting the color/tint/sound and other variables a bit, am very happy with it!
Picture is clear, sound is very good. I thought this was the same TV I previously owned by the model number but it's not. It's just a little smaller but still useful in room it is used.
