Bought this TV for my mum (don't normally spend so much, but she loves tennis and had a tiny 19" rubbish LCD) and she loves it. I was worried she would think it was too big, but to be honest it's ok. For small to medium rooms it's ok, if your room is any bigger maybe think of a 42".
Colours are very neutral and look natural, not saturated or over-done on contrast. We just did the auto set-up of digital channels only. Picture quality and sharpness is excellent.
The Electronic Programme Guide is good too, ok for my 'techno-phobe' mum. Remote is well laid out too and not over complicated.
Only one thing i noticed - the stated composite inputs on the rear panel are actually component. Composite inputs are on the side panel.
Composite are yellow (vid), with red+white (stereo sound), Component is red/green/blue (vid) phono plugs (YPbPr) - also required are the audio (red+white) leads.
Everything else is as stated, bargain really. Mum likes the little tune it plays when putting it on standby from the remote. (little things)
You can allocate the extra inputs a name, so instead of EXTL or AV2, etc, you can name them DVD, VCR, etc.
Play delivered within 4 days via courier. Not too heavy, one person can manage.
Hope this helps. Thanks Play.
