I bought this TV to replace an ageing Toshiba 32" LCD and after three days of ownership I'm exceptionally pleased, for the price this TV is a complete bargain! Both HD and SD picture quality is excellent, once you've fiddled with the settings (out of the box its very bright, saturated and contrasty). Use with an XBOX is very good, I have it hooked up to a Humax Freeview HD box and a Western Digital WDTV player, both of which look great on the TV. I've not tried the built in Freeview tuner so can't comment on that. Built in speakers are what you'd expect from a TV, I hooked mine up to the stereo as quickly as possible! It may be *only 720p* but I don't have any 1080p sources, so that wasn't an issue for me and besides, 720p still looks amazing.

There are a few cons to consider though.

Connectivity - One SCART socket is a little tight, two HDMI is manageable considering how cheap HDMI hubs are. No RCA connections for output to a stereo is a bit rubbish, there is an optical output but those with older equipment like myself will have to use the headphone jack, which in fairness works OK and still sounds miles better than the built in speakers.

Reflective screen - perhaps this is just due to being used to a matt finish on the old TV, but the screen does seem very reflective, distracting when the room is bright and you can see a reflection of yourself!

If you're looking for a really good TV that doesn't cost a fortune, this is it.

I've had this set exactly a week now and i'm really pleased with it, however if you have a short temper this may not be the TV for you. The preset picture levels are absolutely awful and to be perfectly honest make the TV virtually unwatchable, however after plenty of reading around the AV and Tech forums, and no small amount of tinkering on my part calibrating the set it is now displaying a truly stunning picture.

It's a good idea to have two presets ( one on standard mode and the other in movie mode ) for your viewing needs, the standard setting used during daylight or in a brightly lit room, and the movie mode for when the room is dark. These presets can easily be switched via the Tools button on the remote. Ignore the Dynamic setting altogether, there are limited options for changing it, and it is truly awful !

Other buyers have mentioned that it only has SD Freeview, this is indeed the case. However ( if like me ) you are only going to be viewing a TV source via a SKY+HD box this doesn't matter to you because you'll never use the freeview.

It has also been mentioned that it is only 720p HD, again this is the case. This will only matter to you if you are going to be doing a lot of viewing via a BluRay player which is 1080p ( and even then you would be nitpicking ). If you are watching SKY+HD it only outputs at 1080i and displays a near perfect picture.

If you have multiple devices that you want to be able to connect to the TV you may have issues. The TV only has 2 HDMI inputs, this means that if you have SKY or Virgin / a playstation / a BluRay player etc etc / you'll only be able to have two of them permanently plugged in.

Lastly a little feedback for Amazon customer services, they are absolutely brilliant !

This is a great TV for the money, picture is great, and set up was easy and simple, we have our's on the supplied stand and it looks good too. Only issue I have is the sound/speakers, it's a bit tinny, so we invested in a set of external speakers with separate sub woofer, ( Speedlink SL-8209-SBK Vivo 2.1 Subwoofer System - Black, about £30 on Amazon )which plug into the headphones jack on the rear and it transforms the whole experience, as I say for this type of price.....FANTASTIC TV !

I bought this TV because of the good reviews so i dont know whether i had a duff one or not.I just could,nt get the picture right, even with cell light,brightness and contrast set to max the screen looked dark and the Whites looked muddy. In movie and dynamic mode it made it look worse. I ran Gladiator through the DVD and the opening scenes where they are all in the wood i could barely see. When Maximus went into the sunlit arena the picture was good but when he was in the tunnel waiting the picture was way too dark to see anything. This happened in all programs and not just on DVD. Tried adjusting all the other settings ,gamma,Red Green and Blue tint etc etc and nothing made a lot of difference.I was really looking forward to owning this TV as it was going to replace my Sony Trinitron CRT. I could have ordered another one to see if it was any better but to be honest its put me off of buying it now. As always Amazon were as good as ever.
I found the sound to be very good with plenty of adjustment to suit all tastes.
Hope this review helps instead of confusing

For the money this tv is almost impossible to beat. A decade or so ago you would have paid thousands for a 43 inch plasma tv, not 300 quid! What a bargain. The picture is really good when fed by a HD signal (most people would be hard pushed to tell the diference between 720p and full HD), no noticeable motion blur, excellent deep black levels and contrast.

It would seem churlish to criticise this tv in view of the price, but a review should also highlight the bad as well as the good, so:
Firstly, the sound is appalling. I don't know how anyone can say this tv sounds good or even ok. The problem is the tiny speakers fitted into the attractive, slim frame design. The sound is harsh and tinny, but plug in a decent sound system and you are sorted. Just make sure you get to hear one before you decide to buy. This tv looks like a £600+ job until you hear it!
Secondly, connectivity is somewhat limited, this probably won't bother the majoriy of users, but check if you have a lot of set top boxes, games consoles etc to connect.
Thirdly, it's a plasma! A few years ago LCD tv's were miles behind plasmas in terms of picture quality, but now it is hard to tell them apart and LCD tv's have become more popular than plasmas. Plasmas use more juice and are more prone to screen burn, and some consider them to be a bit lesss reliable than LCD's, but in view of the price it's hard to get worked up about it.

So, to sum up, a fantastic picture at a brilliant price, let down big time by the sound quality, but use an external sound system or one of those new fangled 'sound bars' and just enjoy the screen! Connectivity a bit limited and together with only 720p HD you can see where the corners have been cut to keep the price low, but with a 43 inch picture this good I can forgive a lot.

PS. I wrote this review whe this tv was a lot cheaper (£299!), I doubt now whether I would still rate it so highly in terms of value for money.
