Peter, Newcastle Gamer and movie buff.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A lot of good points. Even without an HD source, the 100hz display gives great picture quality (as good if not better than my old CRT). Connect to an HD source and ... wow! I have a PS3 for games and Blu-ray movies and this TV takes playing and viewing to another level.
Bad points:
Screen picks up marks easily so get a proper cleaning tool. May actually be a little to big - make sure your room needs and can cope with 42".

michael, west lothian

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Picture is crisp and sharp, even from a digital terestrial source, hd resolution incrediable real.
Bad points:
sound not great due to lack of large speakers, but why should your tv be powering the sound anyway, thats the amps job. menu system isn't as inventive as other hd tv's, which was surprising for philips
