very good refresh rate (ie no ghosting in DVD playback, and perfect for games), screen pivots 90degrees for A4 page review, mains in base plate, very good, clear sound with deep clear base and full range reproduction, the number of failed pixels/adjacent pixels, dark/light pixels that consitute a failed screen is 0, zero, none. Most TFT you can have uptp 15 pixels, 4 together or within a 30 pixel grid, and the screen is deemed OK. This one, a single failure and the unit is faulty. That is what the price premium is about. Don't overlook this. It only cost me £100 from Dixons as it was on manager discount at Heathrow. Bargin!
