i looked at the model and own a xf40 toshiba so feel abit loyal to tosh
but i didnt find to much info on this telly and i felt it was overpriced for what you got imo.
i would consider the
panasonic plasma g10 as a plasma option and
compared to the sony w5500 and the philips 7404 for that money
these i personally felt were top of the tree in terms of value and overall quailty
I absolutely love it, but there is a slight dimming/rebrightening issue even with light sensor and dynamic backlight etc settings disabled. John Lewis have said it a feature of the ECO panel and cannot be disabled. I am waiting for Philips to confirm that the 47PFL7404 is not ECO and does not have this issue and I am willing to pay the extra for the 47". I have the 42PFL7404.
Do you think their "Ambilight" system is worth it? I see you opted for the model without it so I guess it's not for you but from what I've seen of it on you tube, it does look very good, the 8 series is what I'm interested in.
I recently bought the Toshiba 42" ZV635DB LCD from Amazon for the amazing price of £580 (+ nectar points) and I think this TV is fantastic! Beautiful images and a lot of ports including USB, 2 scarts, PC and 4 HDMI. No problems at all so far. I would definitely recommend it. Cheers
