    Hi,

    I am seriously considering getting this model and would like your views please. I have read the HCC review and wonder if its as bad with SD as they make out ? I have telewest and use a PACE digibox, would SD be ok with this in your opinion ? Does DVD with RGB fair any better ?

    I would like to know its capability with SD as I have already seen it with HD and it looks great.

    Cheers.

    Where is this review that you speak of ? Do you have a link ?

    I have this TV and whilst SD is not as good as CRT , it is okay. Make sure that you connect through the RGB scart socket and have the settings for RGB. Also, make sure that the sharpness is set low to 2-3. Made mistake when first got it of having it set v.high and the PQ was horrible.

    I have just bought the 32pf5320, I think its the same apart from the 5520 has a freeview tuner built in. I am using it with ntl. I think the picture quality is good enough as long as you aren't too close to the screen..

    I'm using mine with Sky+. Generally pleased as long as you don't get too close, I'm about 8 feet from the tele.

    DVD wise - it's excellent.
