Good points:
When I first got the TV I was suprised at how much the picture was improved for regular TV and movies. For the first month or so it almost ruined my TV watching because I could see more detail and this made the sets and camera work look cheap. Highly recomend it.
Bad points:
The remote is a bit complicated. We mostly use the Sky remote when watching TV.

Oli, Reading

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
with still pictures, and some moving pictures the image quality is excellent. Digital TV in particular was a pleasant surprise. Connectivity is good too.
Bad points:
It took me a week or so to actually notice this, but there can be significant "smearing" - a sort of motion blur. This happens when the image is darker, and seems better (possibly completely gone) when playing DVDs. It seems worse on some programmes than others.
I was initially concerned with a noise made by the backlight - louder with increased brightness. I've settled on a setting now that doesn't bother me.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value for money with amazing HD picture. Works well with standard signal but shines with HD source.
Bad points:
Quite a large surround to the TV, and with it not being the best looking, it looses some wow factor.
