Hey Spook, where did you see it at that price? I just bought one from a Panasonic shop and am looking for a good price to use my Barclaycard price promise.
I love mine. I think it's by far the prettiest LCD out there at the mo and that was important to me. As to performance, it's good. I thought it was the most natural looking of all the LCD's I looked at, up there with the Philips.
DVD's look stunning but, like all LCD's, you have to get used to way it shows up poorly broadcast TV stations.
I would recommend it, my only caveat being that it has no component in. But, if that's not a problem, you could do a lot worse.
This is true and I was aware when I bought it. The horizontal angle is very good though. THe vertical doesn't bother me at all as it's perfect from the sofa or standing in the room. I rarely watch the TV from the floor unless I have taken a lethal cocktail of drink and drugs and then I'm not really fussed anyway.
