Have been using this TV for about 6 months now.
Expensive item, but I still find justifying the price easy to do, every time I watch a good BluRay on it, I still find myself amazed at the picture quality, the clarity and the colour reproduction.
Comparing it to friend 1080P TVs, they still look sharp with HD material, but this just looks deep and takes the watching experience to another level.
The undermount sound bar is good quality and perfect for general use, but for films you really want a dedicated surround sound system to finish the experience off.
The anologue tuner is good quality providing a more than aceptable picture even at this size, the digital tuner is also good quality with none of the problems apparent on my cheaper TVs showing up, such as major pixelation on scene changes and fast action shots.
The casing is a stylish glossy black, with no frills to distract the viewing, even the power led on the left can be dimmed so it doesn’t distract you.
Having mastered the menu system within a few days, it’s easy to navigate changes required for different playback material.
If you can still get one and have the funds, then do it whist you can, the difference from lesser TVs needs to be seen to be believed, it really is in another class.
