Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The technology behind the set is excellent with a brilliantly clear plasma screen and excellent colour definition. Although sound is not usually a TV's best point this one has good sound quality especially when put through a decent speaker system such as a Bose. It's big but not too big and you see things you just wouldn't on a smaller screen.
Bad points:
None that I've found so far.

Good points:
Very good picture and especially sound. Works well with the sky box.
Bad points:
No real bad points except the power consumption is higher than expected and the cost is higher than other 42 inche plasma's but just about worth the extra money

Clement, Essex

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
When the source is good i.e. digital with dolby sound production the image and sound quality are excellent. I haven't tried it with an HD source yet but this is bound to be even better.
Bad points:
1) Patches appear on the screen when touched. My 1 year old nephew's hand prints are all over the screen. I tried cleaning them off with a dry piece of cloth but was unable to. This may be the case with all plasma screens and there may be special cleaning methods for this - will make enquiries
2) Picture in Picture function does not work with PC input however it works with 4 AV and 3 HDMI inputs
