My heavens, when I saw this TV in Best Buy, I must have been standing there droolingat it for at least half an hour. Staring at the beautiful picture, I couldn't believe how real it looked. I had been standing there, battling with myself in my mind over whether or not I should buy this excellent looking television. As it would cost me lunch for a year, this was a monumental decision. Though I did not buy this TV, and therefore have no opinion of the features or the remote control, I can say with complete certainty that it had the best picture quality I had seen. While sound quality is entirely dependent on your home theater setup, if you have the bankroll to buy one of these without blinking, you can afford a nice system. Seriously, if you want a large screen flat panel V, the Aquos is for you.
