How does a Full HD TV for under £400 sound?

Advantages: Amazing picture and sound quality
Disadvantages: The stands can gather dust quite quickly
--Tech Specs and Design
The TV has a very clean design, with a nice sturdy base that screws to the main TV unit. The TV is surrounded by a nice sized black border and this is topped off with a thin glass border round this - it even comes with a small cloth for you to clean this with!
In terms of ports to connect things to, the TV comes with a total of 4 HDMI ports which is an excellent number, this is suitable for XBox, PS3, Sky Box and Media Server (you can tell why I needed to upgrade TV!). It also comes with a composite connector (I use this for a Wii), 2 USB Ports (so you can stream media from Pen Drives) and the icing on the cake...a ethernet network port.
--A Networked TV--
In my flat I have a media PC, a gaming PC, a macbook, a standard laptop and an iPhone - my TV told me this. The network port on the back of the TV lets it connect to your home network and share any media that you have on laptops. Even better than that, it can be controlled through your iPhone - so if you want to put the sound up from another room in the house then this is done very easily.
--High Def Content--
So this TV is a 40" LCD, 1080p TV with freeview HD so you can watch BBCHD, ITVHD and C4HD...enough acronyms to make anyone dizzy! Simply put - this is the highest resolution that you can currently get on a TV, and the built in freeview tuner lets you pick up some high definition channels so you can watch better (image) quality programs. This is a really nice feature and isn't something that you would normally come across in standard high-def TVs, especially not ones of this price. On top of all of the visual high def content, the audio is also high def. There is a button on the remote that activates a sort of virtual surround sound which is unbelievable! Now I'm not really a big believer in virtual surround - I'd rather go for the proper 5.1 setup - but this works so so well, I couldn't believe how well it manages to do...whatever it does!
I am more than impressed with this TV, and if I'd known how good it was I would have bought it a lot sooner! It looks amazing and the image quality is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone that is after a new TV and doesn't want to spend a fortune. You're spending a little bit more than non-named brands, but a lot less than you should for something of this quality!
Summary: An excellent TV for anyone that wants true high def content
