Excerpt: You can read a wide range of professional views about this set but the fact is that in your home, without any other sets alongside to compare and confuse as in a showroom, it is truly great. The size is awesome. A 55in diag screen is 71% larger than a 42in screen. This increase seems pretty large on paper but in the room it beggars belief - if your room is large enough not to be dwarfed by this monster-sized screen, then this is an instance when size DOES matter.
Pros: Size - 71% bigger than a 42in set Picture quality Sound system Powered turntable Built-in digital tuner
Cons: Non-illuminated Remote Control Side speakers not detachable No Media box (for ease of connections) Expensive when compared with the USA price
