I recently bought this TV after much deliberation, and I can recommend it unreservedly. The picture quality is beyond reproach for the price (£500). There are a few (very small) geometry problems, although I don't seem to suffer the extreme 4:3 problems some others have. The service menu is easy to access and safe to use, and it can help solve any minor niggles. Get this TV before everyone looses their stock as it's being replaced by a newer, more expensive model. It's also drop dead gorgeous looking. If Barry_X happens to read this: Thanks for the Sony recommendation, but I don't think I'll be changing now!!! Signing up to this forum and finding out about this TV was such a stroke of luck. Well done everyone!
