The best product I've ever bought. Full stop! When I purchased it, back in the beginning of 2009, I managed to get it with a 3 year warranty and when it was in a sale. I paid about £350. I don't regret a single penny. But it's a lot of cash to pay out for any item, so I spent my time researching to ensure this is was the product for me.
I checked a lot of AV forums and the general consensus was the 32" and higher (smaller models do not have the IPS panel, I think) were excellent value for money and don't have the same kind of problems Sony and Samsung (at that time anyway) had with motion blurring and colour bleeding (this is important for anyone who plays games or watches anything that's fast moving, e.g. football).
The display quality is excellent. The user interface is easy to use. No problems hooking up an old DVD player and streamer via scart. I later got a sat receiver with HDMI and a PS3. No problems connecting either up ("plug and play") and football showed no motion problems at all.
Like with most LCD/plasma TVs, the speakers aren't too great but it's to be expected. AV receivers and 5.1-9.1 speakers are coming down in price so it would be no problem improving it. This is an absolutely minor issue though.
It's only 720p rather than 1080p but don't worry about that. As it's 32" you won't notice the difference and it accepts 1080p input.
I really can't fault this product at all. No problems with it and nothing more can be asked for at that price. If you don't need 3D or Internet@TV and just want a solid all-round performer than you can't go wrong with this.
Summary: A solid performer at this price range, you won't get better
