Looking for a 32 to 40 inch tv for the bedroom chaps.

doesnt need to be 3d although most seem to be anyway.

I've always had and liked Sony before.

Will be primarily for freeview and freeview hd.

Is this any good?

I've been researching a new TV for my retreat and also came up with the same model. It has rave reviews in this months WhatHiFi magazine and won their "supertest" against 6 other TV's.

Lots of stores seem to be offering it with a free 5 year warranty if you buy in store.

Did you buy one or still looking?

One thing i learnt to my cost with these tvs is that if you are going to wall mount make sure all the ports /sockets are on the side and NOT at the bd back.

You can get mounts like the following that come with a range of different sized spacers that allow for cables to jut out the back!

I pretty much have that tv - and I like it a lot.
mine did not have the soundbar, but I tracked one down for £50 or so.
Makes all the difference. I had a thread on hear about it IIRC

Happy days

Havent bought yet, largely as in a slight quandary and slightly seduced by this...

Sound quality nowhere near the Sony but I can output to my Bose mini cubes in the bedroom if it's an issue.

Thoughts?

They're both great TVs but each have their own strengths and weaknesses. What will the TV mainly be used for?

I'd probably find a showroom which preferably had them both for a direct hands on comparison.
