Awesome If you trust the word of a random software developer, here is what I have to say:* The text is quite sharp and it makes a full work day from the couch 100% doable.* All streaming services work very well. 100% recommended for cable cutters* Connecting to my laptop over HDMI works phenomenally* The sound from the TV is actually better than a lot of low end sound bars* Connecting it to my laptop as a wireless display was choppy, but functional. Just plug it in… lol

Great TV, but brace yourself for ads This is a great television, but you could easily miss one fundamental feature: it is cheap because it is subsidized by ads. Unremovable Fandango promotions. Rotating adverts for subscription channels, TV events, political shows…all sit next to your apps/input selection menu.I use it for PS4 Pro and Netflix/Hulu/HBO Go.Great TV…really nice tech.But I hate the ads.

Don’t hesitate to buy. Really good value! Initial review 7-4-18: Just got it today, so this is an initial impression. Replaced a ~6 year old 50″ LG Plasma. Great picture on the plasma but it faces a sliding glass door, and finally got sick of the really bad reflection during the daytime. The reflections on this is much less. Delivered in good condition. Easy setup. First thing I did was to get wireless connected and run some YouTube screen test videos. Zero edge light bleed, no banding, don’t notice any dirty screen, haven’t noticed any dead pixels.. Connected to the Comcast cable box, and to an OTA antenna. Scanned for the OTA channels. OTA looks great. Tweaked the picture settings as follows:Revised settings 7-28-18: Had picture mode originally set to Movie but found Normal to be better. Normal can produce really flushed faces unless the color setting is turned down – but also produces the sharpest most accurate picture in my opinion. Note: I believe these setting are pretty much the default…
