The perfect TV Review by wizard

Bought this unit at Walmart after much searching over one year ago . Being able to compare different brands and models side by side was a key factor. Having the 120Hz makes a world of difference . The faster refresh rate is a must for high definition. The 42 inch screen is not to big and not too small. It's the perfect size for a typical living room . I highly recommend this TV . Great unit at an affordable price .
