Its brother LG 50pk590 which uses the same panel has received a remarkable rating in almost all reviews... So, expect this set to be if not equally great, about the same range.
Major differences between the two models: 2 x HDMIs (4 in 590, get a HDMI switch, I saw for 15 quids online), Freeview ( Freeview HD in 590, if you have Sky+HD its useless anyway... if you don't have Sky+HD then get one!), No internet connection ( 590 has Netcast which basically allows you to watch youtube vids, etc. Personally not a big fan, but if you do want this you can get a Sony BD S370 Bluray player retails at about 99gbp offers a lot more than Netcast).
There is also a THX certification for pk590, which has best picture settings out the of box... in 350 you may have to tweak a bit.. loads of help on forums, but its down to personal taste.
The difference in price between 590/350 is about 150/200 depending on the offer around. If the differences mean a lot to you, go for the 590, but I just bought the pk350 (arriving tomorrow) and for the price its the best piece of hardware I am gonna get.
You can also buy this off Dixons (570gbp) can apply code Dixons5 to get 5% off and go through quidco for another 21gbp.. bringing price down to 520gbp... but Dixons has a very bad reputation with customer service. I went for Dixons in spite of this because, they had Sat delivery where as Amazon doesn't do that... without a car, its impossible for me to pick up from the depot.
One other feature the TV has is that it can play .mkv files through the USB, but only files that are less than (4gb) which is such a bummer. But TV shows, etc in full HD should be fine.. I would suggest getting something like the Western Digital Live TV, which plays pretty much every format you could think of.
