Great review guys, truly bang on. I am a Cedia Certified Advanced Installer in Canada, and just got this TV to evaluate today. (moved my Sharp LC42D64U into the office as a computer monitor until I have to give this TV back:) ) I just want to add a few details that really make this TV special to a pro installer. Discrete IR Codes, and they're right on the remote control. This makes programming custom remote controls incredibly easy reliable. The Low Profile stand that it comes shipped with is just that. The TV appears to float roughly 1/2" above my stand, and looks really stealthy. One thing I noticed right away, when I was relocating my Sharp TV is that the Planar is HEAVY. My Sharp 42" probably weighs 1/2 of what the Planar does. It's nice to finally find a display that sets itself aside from the retail brands and lives up to its cost.
have had the Planar on the wall for 2 yrs. Had to install extra Speaker system $$$, Had to use Cable System to view any programs, then in 2014 installed ROKU. 1 month into October 2014 TV Power go's out! Nothing, absolutely Nothing justifies purchases of PLANAR TV's for normal households in USA. Stay with VIZIO TV's.
