Summary: Had the Sony for around two years now and I think it's a great piece of kit, which (touch wood) has worked perfectly. Now that I've got a proper HD source connected to it it really comes into it's own, when using an upscaling DVD player the improvement over SD was noticeable.
Summary: We got one just over a year ago, in fact 13 months ,and gues what? its gone, no pictures just out of the blue. How on earth can a product over a thousand pound just last this short? I am highly disappointed. I haven't got the slightest clue how much it is going to cost to fix.Hmm!
Summary: When I bought this TV, it was a tossup between this and a 42in HD plasma, I wanted a large, HD tv for gaming and to watch movies, so I thought the bigger the better. At first, everything was great, but after fourteen months, the colour started to go wonky, purple fringing on all channels, this became worse and worse until the TV was unwatchable, so I had to have it repaired.
Pros: Big screen, nice price, high def, freeview.
Cons: If you can get it to work for more than a month.
Summary: For the money this set is excellent, look for bargains under £900.00 incl VAT. Well impressed running my Xbox 360 through it at 720p. Compares well to my friend's Samsung 50-inch plasma costing over twice as much.
Pros: Price, connectivity, picture quality
Cons: A slight watermark effect on bright contrast colours
