Advantages Good picture, sound, and set up system
Disadvantages None so far.
This is my first widescreen TV, finally fed up of watching TV with half the picture missing, we did a lot of research on what to buy, given our limited budget and desire for something that would tick all our boxes.
We wanted a flat screen, due to having a large patio door at the far end of the room it is in, good sound, and good picture. We got all of that, so we are satisfied.
I don't do technical stuff, which you can find elsewhere normally, but here is a little bit.
It's 50 mhz, which means almost nothing to me, but does provide a very clear picture. It's nicam, with various sound modes for the type of TV you are watching, including movie, music, speech, standard or custom. It also has a bizarrely named thing called "turbo" which does give an even better sound.
The picture modes are similarly varied, including "Dynamic" which provides my favourite crystal clear picture.
Many TV's and electrical stuff seem to boast how fantastic they are by giving you a remote with more buttons than NORAD, however this one is the most simple I have seen. Most menu functions such as sound modes, picture modes etc can be accessed from a menu button, but can also be accessed more quickly by shortcut buttons, which have other functions.
It has the usual stuff like teletext with fast text buttons, but you can also save your favourite pages for even quicker access.
One of the most impressive things about this TV, you will only use once! That's the set up, it really is simplicity itself, plug it in, connect it up, choose the language, and off it goes. The only thing you may have to do after that is swap the best channels around so that the best pictures are the first choice channels. That's simple as well.
The TV also features the ability to reduce "noise" if you are suffering poor reception, I can't comment on that as mine is OK. Having said that I am using a loft aerial, and this gives a far better picture than it did on my previous Sanyo TV. With a perfect picture on all 4 channels.
Connections - 2 scart, Av and all that, nicely tucked away on the left side, so the front is nice and tidy.
On the sad side, as in sad person, it does make a funky little chirruping sound when you turn it on, and put it on standby, and even more appealling to my sad side, when it goes to standby, the picture shuts down with a curtain effect. The sound can be switched off for those of you are less imprssed by silly little things than me.
It's a whopper of a TV, and took both me and my wife to move it into position, not to heavy, just big.
