ive heard some slate this set and others praise it both in this forum and in reviews. I'm happy with mine though i don't use the analogue rf for viewing off air, the picture via rgb from digibox is excellent. I will buy a pal prog dvd when they become a bit cheaper. So, no I would not stop you buying one but as seems to be the case with all tv,s there are some dud examples about.
Jtorry - If you don't mind telling us, what price did you order yours for - and where from ?
I've been thinking about this PH40 for a few weeks now, and I've noticed that the best price is about £1099 from the internet only BE. Most places with retail outlets (useful for pricechecking with John Lewis) do these for around £1150, inc. delivery.
A couple of weeks ago, they were going for about £1050.
