looks great with sports, everything is rendered sharply without any blur or stutter at all
no lag at all when playing console games
audio is very loud and clear, only audiophiles will need an external sound system
excellent community support for it, lots of tips online about adjusting it properly
dark colors don't wash out into grey, and remain distinct even in shadowy scenes
need to adjust the colors to get them to look right
