question

How good is the 480p and 720p picture on this tv ?
Asked by: Kevin C.
The 720p is very good. The problem is 480p was always acceptable with 20-30 in tvs. Once you see 1080 and 4k on this model tv, 480p is noticeably inferior. This is an amazing tv.

question

How does the Metal legs support the tvAre they strong and can they handle the weight of the Tv ??Do they support the tv or how do they last??
Asked by: Michael P.
Yes the legs seem strong and sturdy. they are attached to the bottom of the TV base via a slide in bracket. The legs are spread far apart as noted in another answer but I have a deep console that the TV sits on so I have no issue with this. TV is only a few months old so I can't answer the longevity of the legs question but I think there should be no issues.

is it 3d ready?and can you use tablet remote as a universal remote?
Asked by: Anonymous
Not a 3D TV, and the remote is only to control the options and settings on the TV. They would have hit it out of the park if the tablet was universal.
