Maybe I was just expecting too much after having read through the reviews on here most of which rate this TV at 5 stars , and while it is a good set I don't think it warrants that high a rating .
First the positives , it is reasonably priced and for that you get a fine looking set which it comes on a pivoted stand which allows the TV to be rotated from side to side easily . The set up procedure is also easy , no hassle . All the usual connections ....3 x HDMI ports, 2 x SCART, 1 x Component In, 1 x RGB In, 1 x Optical Audio In , 1 x Optical out for your digital Amp, a USB port AND a PCMCIA type 2 slot . The USB port is of particular use in allowing you to watch downloaded movies off a stick .
Now for the not so good , the picture on SD channels could and should be better , particularly for sports where there is an obvious blur ( maybe blur is too strong but detail is far from clear ).
And secondly , previous reviews have rated the sound highly or commented on its poor quality , its confusing how reviews can differ so much , well i'm firmly in the camp that the sound is as expected from most flat screens ie poor in quality even using the clear voice setting , We have to regularly set the volume to the max , (no pump up the volume jokes ),
So to summarize , the set is a mid market set , no more , no less .
