Good points:
Great TV for next gen gaming and blueray movies (the only HD signals I've been able to try on it). Still displays a good standard definition signal too, unlike some other high definition TV's.
Bad points:
Expensive set, but I guess that must be for a reason ;)

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Perfect TV - amazing black reproduction, great colours, most people I know have LCD's and the colours really are a cut above them. Absolutely love it.
Bad points:
It would be nice if a version was offered that didn't include the speaker soundbar along the bottom border of the TV - I and surely many others who invested in this quality of equipment would be doing the same for audio and therefore investing in their own sound system, making the built-in speakers redundant. In saying that, the built-in speakers were excellent in the week or two that I used them.

Steve, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great looking with absolutely noticeable superior performance on SD over the same size LCD screens. I have a similar size LCD so I can see the difference
Bad points:
The electronic programme guide looks a lot less slick and doesn't do PiP when you access it
