Hi. I know that's a lot of money for this set, but I'm on the Isle of Man and that's the cheapest I can get it for over here. My other option is of course to buy online and get it for £500 less, but I'm concerned about shipping such a beast over in case I get a dud and it has to go back. I s'pose my questions are: 1. is it a good set? Looks and sounds great in the shop. I'm fairly fussy but not overly critical, just after a good big TV for playing DVDs (still only got analogue TV reception). 2. what are the general opinions on shipping tellys of this size? Should I bite the bullet and pay more for peace of mind? Thanks for any advice.
