Go to their (TCL) website and download a manual for this model. I did....
Under specs it says its a tv with channels. NOTHING about pixel response, resolution, brightness, contrast, etc....nothing....
The Amazon page does list some specs... and they mention a .6" bezel, but under width without stand it comes up to 6.5". ....but never trust what you see on Amazon under specs, half the time, they are wrong.

I then bought a 40 inch LED TCL for my girlfriend. That TV is alot nicer then most LED's I have come across (LG & Panasonic)
The TCL brand is highly underrated and the two I bought came with 2 year warranty's.
This price is a steal

I currently have a Westinghouse LVM-42W2 manufactured in 2009 (before their quality control disappeared) and have absolutely loved it from day one. Never had a problem with it (although, the LCD panel is beginning to show signs of consession). In fact, I use it as a comparison when looking for a replacement.
I picked up at Seiki SE461TS for $350 down from $700 as a replacement. It had a nice picture but the high-gloss screen and 15-20 second boot time was a dealbreaker and it was returned.
Are there specs like this I should look be looking for to avoid having to go through the headache of returning an item (especially one this size)?

12ms response time. Seems quite high to me, could it be a typo? Even 60hz TV's usually have an 8ms response time, with the 120Hz mostly around 4ms and a Samsung 240hz at 2ms response times.
12ms response time would certainly generate a noticable blur effect. Can anyone comment?

i have not seen to many unhappy vizio owners. i have never owned one though.
i just bought this tv and will tell u when i get it from amazon next week. the reason why i jumped on this deal is..
1. Its amazon.
2. Its cheap as hell compared to any other 55 inch 240hz tv.
3. you can use discover points and redeem the points. (i saved almost 200) plus u can get the 5% off for online shopping from certain discover cards. being from tx, that is another 25~ish.
4. 2 yr (limited) warranty! (it will prolly cost me a lot to ship but will still be cheaper i hope)
I just hope the tv is good enough. not expecting it to be the best. (expect the pic quality to be the same as cheaper brands, westinghouse, vizio etc.)

If the 55" is a good deal at $699, how do people feel about the 48" (odd size?) for $479? I try not to pay more than $10 per inch (insert sexual innuendo here) and the 48" comes right in at that mark.
I just got an open box Toshiba 50L2200U from Best Buy out the door with a 5-year warranty for $630. I absolutely love the picture but am looking for better deals while I can still return to Best Buy. Any thoughts?

|sarcean||TCL is one of the few, if not the only brand I trust for cheap tvs. They use Samsung panels and the quality is top notch.|

|SlidingBike||Stop the TC all you junkies.. if you hate it.. walk away to another thread.. I've been using TCL TV around a year, its more valuable than what I have paid for it(effectively $190 for a 40" LCD TV with Samsung panel, using my HTS for audio).|

I tried a TCL 40/42(Think it was the 40) inch one that was at a great price (posted here)last year and returned it as the picture was OK not great and the speakers were horrible.
