I love this LCD TV. My Sony 21" tube TV of twenty plus years finally started to go out on me so it was more cost effective to buy a new LCD TV rather than fix the old Sony. The clarity of what HD channels I have on cable are wonderful. I have basic cable and most digital channels are converted down to analog but it still displays the analog channels fairly well. I've read most LCD's don't do a nice job with analog signals. The speakers are mounted underneath the TV but do sound surprisingly good. You can't expect home theater sound from any of these types of speakers or even much bass but voice clarity if great. I also looked at a equivalent Sony model in this range but settled on the Panasonic as it seemed to have more vivid color. The remote control is well laid out and does the job well. I won't be using the iPod dock and have no opinion on it but have used the SD memory card slot. The TV has built in software for the SD card and viewing digital photos and it displays photos well, of course this also depends on your camera as well. Can't go wrong with the Panasonic Viera TCL26X1 if your looking for a 26" for the bedroom or kitchen.
