Lurgs, Brighton Love Action Movies

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb upscaled image from a DVD player with an HDMI lead & upscaling to 1080i. Casino Royale on DVD was mesmerisingly clear. Can't wait to feed it a Blu Ray High Definition source.
TV looks gorgeous & is amazing value for money. All this talk of blacks not being good on LCD & normal TV looking bad is rubbish, it ticks all my boxes. Can't wait to watch my next movie!
Bad points:
There is no physical ON/OFF switch & the TV is permanently on Standby. How can this be allowed in this day & age? Even if it only uses a few watts its still a terrible waste & really annoys me.

allan, falkirk

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The 1080p using 1:1 pixel mapping makes a huge differance when using my ps3 for games and blu ray,It handles standard def pictures very well compared to my other 42 inch philips,The colours are extreme and amazing for games and movies but for any football games i use the mild setting and there is little blur/feedback on the players that makes this LCD amazing
