Chris, Wantage

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast, effective and easy auto set up. Comprehensive Instruction Manual. Excellent overall picture quality - stunning when watching newer programmes/films. If you can afford a Blu-ray player then go for it to view the ultimate.
Bad points:
As with most LCD's and Plasmas a bit of 'lag' when watching fast sports action. Sound a little disappointing, even with its 30 watts, which is more powerful than most other sets. A Surround sound system would be a good investment to compliment this otherwise tremendous TV.

Very nice design. Easy to use menus. Great connectivity. Good picture on HD and SD
