I needed a TV to pass the time and didn't have much money, I found someone selling this on gumtree for £150. It seemed like a good deal for a 32 incher at the time, so I went for it. Although not full 1080p HD, the picture is great when you have it playing something that is at least 720p. For anything else such as watching the regular channels, try to sit as far back as you can. Although that is not the fault of the TV, its the way these non-HD channels look on an HD TV and that is the main weakness of all HDTVs. The X-Box Games look amazing on this, and the colours look very vivid and bright, the few Bluray movies i have also look quite good.
Sound-wise it is OK but I have mine plugged into a surround sound system to get a better experience. This would be a criticism of most TVs though, so most people would probably buy a surround sound system because you wouldn't watch a 5.1 surround sound movie on 2 speakers directly in front of you would you?
With these new TVs they tend to set themselves up and not much fiddling around is needed, the remote is easy to understand and switching between the TV, Sky, X-Box and the Bluray player is a breeze.
Overall, I would recommend this TV if you are short of cash or a tightwad. It is not full HD but it should give you a good few years of service before you decide on a 3D TV or whatever else is out by then.
