Have you ever gone into an electronics store looking for a piece of equipment, lets say a 1080p TV set, to complement your swank bachelor pad and had the salesman try to sell you an over priced, under performing piece of crap? Who cares if he has one of them at home?

144 Series Mitsubishi 46” LCD Flat Panel TV
Detects inputs automatically
Simple menu interface (navigate on TV, plug in HDMI for Xbox 360)
Easy to see menu
3 preset picture modes for each input
Perfect color controls help fine-tune color, though we didn’t need to use it
No perfect-tint controls; it’s otherwise a great picture right out of the box
It’s not as thin and light as a plasma
Depth of about 6” without the stand
Matte gray makes it not so prominent, but blue LED is like a planet
Small speaker slit, sound not that great
Three HDMI ports
It’s got two AVs and a Component
Learn function on the remote has trouble learning
Not easy for the average person
Red backlight is cool
120 HTZ refresh rate smoothes out fast motion blur
Accurate colors, including black
Not too dark or shadowy
It’s a good television for an entry level Joe who wants high-def
At $3,000 it’s not the cheapest, but it’s still pretty reasonable
