      A fantastic tv let down by not having full HD support

      I purchased this TV a few years ago after looking around for an entire year deciding on a model. I managed to get a private trial of this tv at Sound and Vision. I'd recommended trying like this before buying to anyone!

      The 42'' screen of this tv is more than big enough for all but the biggest of rooms. It sits well as a focal point in an average sized room. The tv has a multitude of different inputs allowing you to connect external devices such as dvd players and games consoles. There are 2 HDMI inputs, 3 scart inputs and connectivity for digital cameras.

      The screen itself is one of the best quality plasma screens I have seen, it produces an incredibly sharp image along with great colour depth. One gripe about this is the temperature it gets to, the back of the screen heats up to a rediculous level. The is a problem with all plasma screens though due to the technology used. If you are watching tv in the winter you certainly don't need your radiators on!

      A problem with this plasma screen compared to a normal television is the fact is uses so much more electricity, in fact our electricity bills have soared since we got this tv!

      The tv has the ability to be both wall mounted or placed on a stand to be placed on a table top. However, you have to buy a further item - either a mounting kit for the wall or the stand for the table tops. We bought the stand at a rip off £150! It really is just a money making scheme by Pioneer in my opinion. However, don't let this detract from the quality of this screen.

      The only let down is that is doesn't support full HD but this doesn't affect me as I only have standard digital input, not high definition.
