I bought this TV in April 2011 for £629 - this was and still is an excellent price for such a large TV. I have this in my bedroom - initially is looked ridiculously large, but as you all know , TV's have a habit of 'shrinking' over time to their surroundings and it looks great once your used to the size.
I dont know much about 'performance' , some reviewers go on about the 'ms' response time etc, all I know is the picture quality looks great for films / sport news programs with no blurring or ghosting on screen.
The SD picture quality initially was a little disconcerting, slightly 'blocky' - but this, I have found on many friends HD tvs , freeviews signal can be quite compressed at time and dark areas will show pixelization. This is not the fault of the tv though.
I have my PS3 hooked up to this unit and am very happy with it, colours are bright , sound is sharp. There are many options on the menu screen to set things up as you like.
One tip, for those who like to watch thier tv quietly at night without disturbing the rest of the house, put the volume down to the lowest setting AND reduce the treble and Bass to 0 - otherwise even at the lowest volume, it can wake light sleepers.
