Although this series offers only the basics in a contemporary TV, what it does offer is of good quality and worth the low price. The biggest and most complained about issue with not only this series, but slim, flat screen TVs in general, is the sound quality. It is only average and does not offer the wow factor that many people are looking for when watching TV or playing video games. Many users have said that the sound is distorted and hollow. If high-end sound is what you are looking for the solution is easy. By attaching a sound bar, speakers or sound system to one of the HDMI inputs, high quality surround sound is easily achieved.
