I got this TV from my local RS (Newcastle) yesterday...and what can I say? the quality is fantastic (seems even better for just 250 quid) It is HD ready, has an optical out port (for surround sound), freeview, VGA, composite, 2 HDMIs...the full specs are on the website.
The extra 5 year warranty is around 25 pounds but that covers any product fault for 5 years and includes labour cost ect.
Bare in mind this deal is only available for in-store customers, but RS have stores everywhere, so enjoy :)
First Deal :D
