It is a matte finish but you can still see a very soft reflection with all the blinds being open. The TV has an engergy setting that will automatically make the TV brighter for daylight hours. My bedroom has a lot of natural light and it does not interfere with the picture.

Well, you've got a couple of options: You can hook it up through the VGA port on your TV (as long as your laptop has a VGA input, which most PCs still do,) or if you have a mac, you can use a VGA to USB connector piece and connect it into the USB port, or you can simply use a USB Cable and hook it into the USB port, and some newer laptops even have an HDMI port, where as you can hook it up to any one of the TVs 3 HDMI ports. Hope this helps.

Hello..I myself got rid of cable 2 years ago. I have an indoor antenna,with a power booster. I get all my pps stations, my 2 local stations(one has my NCIS) Ialso get ION TV . Iam very happy that my new Sanyo 42" pulls in crystal clear digital pictures. Soon Iam hooking up my TV to my PC with a vga cable. I will stream all my TV shows NBC ABC HULU on my TV. wireless mouse and key board are a must for this. AS you sit in your easy chair and do all your pc thingies and TV watching..Its going to be great!!!. My friend already has this set up,(and the same TV),, She loves it!!! who needs cable??? we sure don't. Yes, there are a few commericals here and there on the streaming PC sites I just mentioned... but only a (few) Its all well worth the freedom of NOT having a $80.00 a month fee, that we have no control in what we get to watch. NOW! I will have all the control. I only pay $8.00 for my netflix on my ROKU!! Oh! life is good! Best of luck to you and hope I was able to help you!
