Great HD TV without the bells and whistles
Member Name: KJ_88
Advantages: Price, design, response time, brilliant image quality
Disadvantages: Only two HDMI inputs, no Freeview HD, not Smart TV
I say "without the bells and whistles" as this is not a 3D TV, it doesn't have Smart TV functionality and it doesn't have Freeview HD, all of which are functions that a lot of the market leaders have and features that you'll pay a LOT more to have.
If you want a TV that does its one purpose, and does it extremely well, this is a great choice. The picture and sound quality is brilliant. Its a true HD 1080p picture, and even standard definiton sources look upscaled and sharper.
I use it a lot for gaming, and the response time is great - I haven't experienced any lag like you may find in some other units.
The TV itself is an attractive unit - I was drawn to it because of its very thin besel, meaning that the whole size of the TV is not much more than its 40" screen. Its very thin, but wide enough to give it some support and you don't have to worry about the slightest breeze knocking it over...!
A slight downfall is that the TV only has 2 HDMI sockets, which is a minor inconvenience if you have Sky box/bluray player/games consoles.
For the price, it's a solid TV that performs well, and if the fancier functions of the latest TVs aren't that important to you, you can't go wrong.
Summary: High performing HDTV that's well worth the price
