The picture quality on this is amazing. It works perfectly well with my smart home system (Alexa). I love that the TV has Bluetooth, so I could get rid of the wires to my soundbar. I also like that it has live TV channels available. The TV mounted easily on my existing wall mount. VESA pattern is 300mm x 300mm. The TV and network setup were super easy. I was shocked at the sound quality. If you cannot immediately buy a sound bar or system, the sound on this tv is great quality. It is loud and clear with a surprisingly good bass. This TV has built-in Airplay2 and Miracast for iPhone users.
