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.
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 !
I ordered the TV and paid extra for next day delivery, it arrived as promised the next morning, however the TV was smashed right across the screen. After just a 2 minute phone call it was replaced the very next day, my extra payment for next day delivery was also refunded. You really can't get much better customer service than that.
All in all i'd ideally like to score the TV as 4.5 but I can't, it's not a 5 because of the amount of messing needed to achieve the desired picture and the fact that it only has 2 HDMI inputs.
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.
