I ordered this TV after much research. Admittedly it would be better if it came with the 'Magic' remote included but other than that it is a fantastic bit of kit. The only assembly needed was 8 screws to attach the base, which took just a few minutes. Plugged in, switched on and waited patently while the auto-tuning process completed its routine and then - WOW! A fantastic picture, amazingly crisp and clear, no shadows, nothing whatsoever to detract from viewing enjoyment. It even vastly improved the images from my ancient DVD player. All in all, I can't sing the praises of this TV enough and even if it was twice the price it would still be a fantastic buy. It had both me and my wife thinking that we must have got new eyes!
