Good: HD Picture quality, excellent viewing angles
Bad: SD Picture quality, Guide
Comment: Very disappointed in this TV. It's extremely expensive for what you get.. The guide is slow and isn't intuitive at all. When viewing the guide, you don't hear the sound or see the picture.
No iplayer if you don't have freesat.
non HD transmissions are poor quality - worse than previous TV.
Don't waste your money.
Good: Just about everything! Great blacks and night scenes, superb needle sharp HD (and SD) pictures, brilliant and vibrant colour
Bad: Nothing really, except it is a bit on the expensive side (I paid Â£799) - but you get a lot.
Comment: Provided you take great care calibrating this TV - I used a THX disc and the advanced picture settings - it gives one of the very best pictures I have seen. For once on an LCD set, night scenes are really dark, no greying over, and blacks are detailed and profound where needed. Some reviews have complained about some backlight bleed and inconsistency, but on my model there is none at all.The ISP panel gives a wide viewing angle - though not so much vertically (why would this matter anyway?). The design is neat and unflashy, the back is also neat and simply arranged. PC use is inevitably limited with the supplied dongle. The advanced picture settings enable careful setting of RGB tint, saturation, gamma etc., but I have set these only for HD camcorder use. Sound is more than adequate for most ordinary viewing, clear and with a reasonable bass, but anyway, for more spectacular movies I use my sound system, not necessary for speech etc. Overall, in my view, five stars.
Good: easy set up , just about the right size for most living rooms , picture quality and sound ok .
Bad: nothing .
Comment: overall this tv delivers to at least 4 star quality ,
