I purchased this TV and it was delivered within 3 days (great start), The TV came well packaged and was attached to the stand, this meant I could take it straight out and onto the unit (Perfect).
The TV itself is awesome, I cannot explain just how good it is, if you dont have the extra £100 odd to buy the 1080p one like me (Got a PS3 at the same time) dont worry. The TV has a perfect picture which does required about 20mins of tuning etc but its all down to personal preference.
The sound quality is good, if your bothered by sound buy a surround sound system, I personally think its fine.
The surround is a Piano Black and will require a lot of dusting but so what, you've paid a lot of money for it so look after it.
More connectors that you can shake a stick at and in general the best TV for the money I think you can buy.
