I got this TV a while back for $999 @ Frys and have really enjoyed it for the past 8 months or so.
The 'smart TV' features are pretty cool, and the remote wasn't too hard to figure out. I love that it'll play just about any format video you can throw at it via USB (or wireless hard drive share).
Picture isn't mindblowing, but it's more than adequate for anything I use it for. The 3D is pretty good, though I don't have anything else to compare it to other than theaters.
For $549 or $599 I think this is a steal. I'm seriously considering getting a 2nd set...
