The Pros:Integrated network applications are easy to access and navigate - especially beneficial for those with social networking profiles and Netflix subscriptions. Picture is crisp and vivid - 120Hz processing excels on animated and live-action content. DLNA certified.
The Cons:Requires full system reset if internet connection is lost - users lacking reliable high speed are sure to have a great deal of frustration. Built-in speakers provide poor-quality audio - external speaker system is highly recommended. LED backlighting is not consistent - varying brightness levels are apparent in dark movie/video game scenes.
