    Maybe this will help.

    My brother bought one of these to replace his dead CRT, was in a hurry and on a fairly tight budget.

    Seeing them in store, and connected to a shared aerial feed it was surprising to see just how good the picture actually was. Not top notch, but perfectly decent.

    Bought one of these for the bedroom. Ok as a second TV but wouldn't want it in my living room. After a bit of fiddling managed to get a reasonable picture.

    im a owner

    and funny enough got it from sainsburys

    now i got this for 1 reason

    i hate a rubbish old hitachi tv that didnt do my ps3 any justice!

    so i nipped down to sainsburys and with 2 mins brought it!

    the good things bout this tv:

    Hd up to 1080i output
    freeview inbuilt
    doesnt take up loads of space
    great with ps3 (recommend getting hd lead tho)


    now bad bits :(

    hardly any but 1 othing it took while getting freeview channels (but thts is because i cant get freeview channels without a booster!)

    other than tht its a awesome telly

    and perfect size as i got it for my bedroom

    because that is no point getting a 40 inch for your bedroom because you will only blind yourself!! but this will not happen if you have a massive bedroom and i mean massive

    i went by playstation magzine recommendations for size of telly for size of room

    in every issue!


    hope what ive said has helped!

    my opinion: BUY IT!
