I don't get hooked up until Saturday so I maybe I shouldn't say too much until then. My sister is on it in Regina and has always been very happy. I didn't notice the picture quality being too poor when I visited her last time. My father-in-law had it hooked up to a 57" Hitachi and I don't remember thinking it was terrible, however, his TV wasn't properly calibrated so perhaps I just wasn't expecting too much.
I'll check back in after my instalation.
