Having only beared witness to maximum of a 32" tv in my lifetime, this telly really takes the biscuit.
It's amazing, standard scart input quality is really very good, i was expecting a much more disminished picture on such a big screen but it's fine, 1080 immediately just sticks a grin on your chops.
The response time is only 3.5ms and i haven't noticed as much "blurring" when watching fast detailed motion like football as i did on my previous LCD tv.
There is a very helpful picture optimisation wizard so you don't have to try endless numerical combinations of settings to get the picture looking right either.
This is a LED TV (despite someone suggesting otherwise), it's under 3cm deep and the screen is side-lit as opposed to back-lit. You can notice this (lighting) if there is one matte colour being displayed, the sides will appear lighter then the middle of the screen but it's not annoying.
On a sunny day the screen does seem to reflect a lot of light although i don't know if this is just because it's so big and also i like to have the screen relatively dim anyway.
The speakers aren't amazing but that is to be expected on such a slimline telly.
The tv is not over powering on your eyes and the viewing area is very good, on my last sony lcd telly if you were looking up to it, the top of the screen would become very dark and you basically couldn't see what was going on, but this one doesn't have any such problems!
I thoroughly recommend it !!!
