I got this tv at fry's like a week ago and am also very pleased with it. For the price and I very happy with the picture quality. I know it won't compare to my samsung es8000 but for what it's worth, it's pretty good. At first I was very skeptical bc this tv was a 60hz but honestly everything seems good on it...including sports (I watch a lot of soccer and nba). 3D is a perk so don't buy this tv bc of its 3d because it's not going to WOW you like the tv's that are above $1000. 42" is a good size for a small bed room. I'm probably going to return my westinghouse 40" led tv that I bought from costco about 2 weeks ago.
If you're looking for a budget tv that displays good picture, I recommend this tv
