Advantages: Brilliant picture quality, contrast and brightness options are great.
Disadvantages: Attracts a lot of dust, a bit on the pricier side of flat screens.
Ever since I have seen the picture quality of flat screen LCD TV's I haven't been too impressed with their alleged picture quality, however, I don't think the same could be said for this particular brand.
After I was married, I spent some time at my In-Laws house because our flat wasn't quite ready to move into. In that time I used their TV extensively.
The picture quality on this TV will not disappoint; the colours on the screen are distinctive, clear and true-to-life. As the screen is a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD for short) pixel resolution (1920 x 1080) on screen is incredible and this gives a very realistic image for your eyes to digest.
The controls are accessible to navigate. It comes with a slender remote that has easy to read and easy to use controls. You can adjust the contrast and brightness to four different settings to suit your mood; off, low, mid, high. Using the Advanced Contrast Enhancer you can view programmes and films that are dark so that it brings out their rich cinematography.
In your box you will get your TV, instruction booklet, remote control, cable for connecting it to the power, the stand the TV will sit on and screws.
I have found this TV is brilliant for watching kids films on as it really brings out the detail, colour and brightness. Unfortunately, if you do have kids around beware of mucky hands on the screen! As it's so big, you'll need to watch them around this TV as it would squash them if it landed on them.
To turn on the TV, the power on switch is on top of the TV - this had me bewildered for some time as I had never owned a flat screen before!
The speakers are boasted as "S-Force Front Surround technology" which to me, I don't know my S-Force from my B-Force when it comes to speakers! I just hear "surround sound" and I'm sold. Although nothing will beat that smell of freshly popped corn that hits your nose as you enter the plushly carpeted cinema, having this TV in your home might be one step towards a real cinema sound, but I can't promise it is actually like going to the cinema to own this TV.
It does tend to attract a lot of dust, but if you're house proud I can't imagine dust bunnies being a problem! This cost my In-Laws a cool £600 or so, but they remain adamant that it was worth the splurge. I can see why they'd buy it and if I was considering owning a TV for myself in future I would definitely consider owning a flat screen...perhaps not this model as it's just too pricey for me right now!
Summary: Would buy if I won the lottery :P
