    Hi I just looked at the january offers for makro and they have this tv at £399 and £599 for the 32'inch. I wanted to know if anyone has this tv and what their opinions are on it? I will be mainly using it for playing 360 and PS3, Watching movies through PC and the occasion freeview.

    The specs are:

    26" screens
    HD-ready
    HDMI(TM) socket x1
    PC connectivity
    RGB x2
    Component video x1
    Picture in Picture function (PC mode with TV window)
    High-performance 1 chip video processor
    3D Y/C comb filter
    WXGA (1366 x 768)
    Integrated digital terrestrial and analogue tuner
    BBE ViVA Digital HD3D Sound
    Virtual Dolby® Surround
    Bright highly defined images in any lighting conditions
    Wall mountable

    So far it looks good to me for what I will be using it for. I wanted second opinions on whether this is a worthwhile purchase and how it performs before I buy it. Thanks

    i have 32u2000u bought from makro in dec use it to play xbox 360 and for sky hd picture is first class i am really chuffed with it but make sure you use stabilising bracket as these new lcds are very light and can be knocked over quite easily if you go to sony center website you will see price difference

    I know, they have the tv for £649 :thumbsdow and most other online stores have it around £500-£550 so its really a bargain price and I will definitely bag one! oh and another thing, how is the freeview? I mean is it still watchable, I wont lose sleep if its not going to be super duper HD quality, as long as its watchable :).. No way am I going to pay sky for their rip off prices :thumbsdow

    This offer is back in Makro (starting 6th June)

    Dont forget to add 17.5% VAT... (making it £470.)
    Richer Sounds website is quoting £449.


    Still sounds good value.
    Its my birthday next week. I have given the wife a hint ;-)
