Which review of the 37" version:

Polaroid is not a big name in the world of flat-panel TVs. And on this evidence it will need to work much harder to make strides into the market. This 37-inch HD-ready LCD is like a throwback to the early days of digital technology, and hosts a list of so many reasons not to spend five hundred pounds, that it’s difficult to fit them all in one review.

Standard definition pictures are poor. Using the Scart RGB input, we found that images look flat, dull and smeary – problems highlighted by our technical tests. The artificial look is evident on Freeview. Motion problems and blotchy images drove our panel to remark that the Polaroid was not fit for purpose. High definition pictures suffer from poor resolution and noticeable banding.

Sound quality is equally poor, with the mediocre bass was about as good as it gets. Freeview sounded peaky and with lots of hiss, high frequencies lacked detail, and we heard distortion when listening to our revealing classical music sequence.

Usability is also an issue. The electronic programme guide is unintuitive to use, and although it has good contrast and is a decent size, it is blurred. The instruction manual lacks detail and the remote is poorly laid out, with rarely used buttons taking prominence over some with more key functionality.

The HDMI sockets do not support widescreen switching, auto-source selection or the 1080/24 picture format. Scart cannot trigger any compatible recording equipment but, on the plus side, it has a VGA socket for connecting up to your PC and digital audio output for hooking up to a surround sound system. It can be mounted on a wall, but you’ll need to buy the necessary fittings separately.

Pros: VGA socket for connecting a PC

Cons: Everything else

although granted that was the 37" when it was £500. My friend has the model before this and looks good on PS3 but not great on anything else. Hot price for a 42" though.
1080i :-( :cry:
"720p" is an extremely pertinent piece of information which is lacking from the title of this deal.

Especially considering all the £499ish 42" Branded 1080p LCD HDTVs out there at the moment

Thanks that's a good point, but also for anyone wanting to use Virgin V+ or Sky+ HD services only through their TV, the output is 720p or 1080i and should be pretty good.

Also, if you have a 1080p upscaling DVD player for example, that would obviously display better on a full HD resolution screen.

Before buying anything, it's always a good idea to read as many reviews as possible and to see the product in person if you can.
