OK, bought this yesterday after looking at various models which suited our needs (integral Freeview, HDMI, decent pic quality, no 'elephant ears') and so far we are well chuffed. The pics are clean (well as clean as you get on freeview...) and bright, and most of the time the blacks are fairly good - much better than our little Grundig 17" which can't get anywhere near black. It looks remarkably good on analogue TV and the higher quality channels on SKY (RGB feed) are good too. There was a programme on last night about TV advert music, and the newly-recorded interviews were eye-peeling in their clarity and lack of noise, really impressed . I suspect they were shot in HD, apparently a lot of stuff is. On DOOM 3 on XBOX(also RGB fed), it was far better than I imagined it would be, with only slight lag noticable if I looked for it. Lots of things to play with, just to annoy the missus Sound is not quite as deep-throated as our old Pana CRT (a TX28PK3), but it's quite pleasant and very solid. We don't have any HD sources as yet!
