I am very happy with this TV, it is 80" viewing not 65 as prev post has said, ( get a decent tape measure)it would be illegal to sell a 80" with a 65" viewing space, having checked it myself it is indeed 203CM diagonally end to end of screen, not edge of TV.
It is not a 3D tv and on certain standard definition programmes the picture does not look as sharp, but you are blowing up 480 line resolution to 7 feet in size so of course it is not going to look as clear as on a 40"tv.
High definition is where this tv comes to life, it is crystal clear and with a tweek of the numerous peramaters within the menus and info which is readily available on forums like the AV FORUMS you can really make an impressive picture even better. I just turned down the saturation and dynamic control slightly and i have a crystal clear image on HD and good picture on standard.
There are many tweeks and settings you can adjust.
This is almost a 7ft screen for under 4K, i had one of the first plasmas which was 15K for 36 inch, and picutre was awful compared to this TV. it lives up to what is expected and certainly on my wall it has great presence, you dont need a massive room either, my room is only 13 feet square in a normal town house and this screen is not over bearing, after a while you get used to it and it doesnt look big. It is very economical to run at 133 watts, so it gets A** efficiency rating, and i have put nearly 200 hrs on mine and it hasnt developed any dead pixels or drop outs. the black levels still look good and there are NO jagged edge artifacts on fast moving films, it is the business and is a home cinema without the hassel of bolting a projector to your cieling or screen.

i am very happy with it.
