I looked all over the net for hdtv reviews by sites, individuals etc... for months, and came across this tv. I finally made my mind up, it was either going to be this one or the 32" version. I ordered this one and i'm so glad I did, it's very big, but not too big. There are some people who say the picture quality is poor on SD (standard definition), some go all out on this point, for me the odd channel has a picture quality that isn't the best on a few channels (to be expected on any HDTV), but the quality was never that good on channel five for example for me anyway. on most of the SD channels the picture is spot on, i have no complaints. It takes a bit of tweeking of the settings to get picture right, but that's not a big deal & once done that's it. Also, it seems this tv and some others have poor sound quality according to some, but to be honest the sound is fine, you would have to be near deaf not to hear it even on low volume settings. I can't comment on HD viewing on this tv just yet, but if SD is good, then I just know HD will be amazing! can't wait to get the ps3 hooked up to it via HDMI! I love this tv.
If like me, you're stressing over which choice to make, buy this one, it handles SD channels very well, sound is good, and is very cheap on here compared to high street.
Delivery for me was excelent. I ordered last wednesday, and it came early monday morning & I live in Northern Ireland. thanks play!
