I bought this TV to be my main living room television. I find the picture quality to be good but nowhere near as good as my LG TV. This TV is also HD ready but again viewing HD on this TV is not quite up to the same standards as the LG. The sound quality has started to go when listening to it above a cetain level which is disappointing. One positive point is the on/of switch (the real one not just standby!) is on top of the TV so easy to access unlike many of the newer TV's. It has plnety of HDMI points around the back of the TV but it could benefit with having an extra scart lead point, it currently has 2 but once you've got your cable scart in and your dvd player there isnt room for anything else. Overall I'd say there are now better TV out there, I think visually it looks a bit old fashioned I prefer the sleeker black gloss look, and newer TV's have better picture and sound quality.
