I've had this set for a couple of weeks now, as a second set. The previous week I had owned an expensive Sony which was sent back due to a horrible backlight problem. After upgrading to a 42" (expensive) plasma last year, I couldn't stand watching fuzzy freeview anymore. I think that 32" is about the maximum size for freeview. I am extremely happy with this set, with so many picture options it caters for all tastes, there are multible variables for each picture setting, just about everything can be tweaked. SD pictures via 'S', RGB, or hdmi are crisp and clear. The set recalls each inputs' last setting. The meta brain picture suite includes Active Vision II, and resolution+, which has 6 levels including 'off'. HD pictures are excellent, via hdmi or component, with really dark blacks and the brightest colours. Freeview pictures are perfectly clear, the resolution+ really does help, and it works on all inputs including HDMI. Sound quality is not the best, but there is good depth, and adequate volume for most programming, without rattling speakers. A lot of TV for the money, and better than the far more expensive Sony. I don't know how much of the set is manufactured in the UK, but at least it is assembled here, which has to be of some help to our economy. It's the highest specified Toshiba 32" TV, not a stripped down version. At around £400, this has to be the best value set currently on the market.
