Got this model a few weeks ago, superb.

I also have this TV and would recommend it.

I didn't like it at 1st because the factory default settings are WAY to bright. Once the settings are set correctly the picture is excellent. Its also a very smart looking TV

2 x 10w speakers which is pretty decent but i would recommend this to go nicely with the tv.

this is a plasma and series 4

The 40A656 is an LCD, a series 6 model with Full HD. The series 6 is way better (and more expensive!)

Ask yourself: Will you watching HD sources? If not go for the plasma.

:!: A massive [SIZE="4"][SIZE="3"]380w [/SIZE][/SIZE]power consumption. Check out some of the other TVs around, just to see how high this is. Could think your getting a bargain until you see your electric bill !!!

good deal
#17
i have had this tv for about a year
it looks great
the picture is excellent
the sound is rubbish - had to buy a srs
it does get very warm and gives off a lot of heat - bonus is that it warms up the room
#18
Is it 1080P?

If it is - sold!

sound is on par with all plasma's/LCD, decent enough for everyday use but if you want a cinema effect then a surround sound kit is what you need.
I have the 50 inch version of this tv and sound is ok for me, depends how good your existing one is I suppose.
This tv is good and the price is cheap, cant see it being cheaper than this, if you want a decent tv and dont want to be paying alot then I recommend this one.

Plasmas operate in a different way from LCD's:

"Plasma displays only emit light where necessary, consuming less power on average when displaying moving images than their peak power ratings indicate. This results in plasma displays being more economical for television viewing, offering lower yearly power consumption in large screen TVs.

Although some LCDs quote lower peak power ratings than similar sized plasma displays, they constantly keep a bright backlight on regardless of the image being displayed. LCD power consumption is always at around the same level, consuming more power on average than high performance plasmas when viewing moving images."


I have a 50" PS50A656 Plasma which I switched to from a 32" LE32R88BD LCD and I have noticed no considerable difference in electricity costs and have not changed my viewing habits.
#21
I totally agree. I've noticed no difference with my 42" Plasma, although I do tend to turn it off at the mains at night with a remote mains controller. I find the sound on my PS42Q97HDX very good indeed, but I cannot comment on this particular model. I was all ready to use my home cinema sound system on a regular basis after hearing the pathetic speakers on LCD's but I found the sound more than adequate. At this price even if it's 720p, I would still buy it, as I've really struggled to spot a difference in real world use (HDTV, Games etc) between this and 1080p although technically I know there is one. Bargain, especially with the 5 year warranty available with other vendors.
#22
MINE ARRIVED TODAY. VERY EASY TO SET UP WITH AUTO TUNE, ALSO HELPS IF YOU BUY A "SCART SPLITTER" TO SAVE SWAPPING ALL OF THE SCARTS WHEN CHANGING DEVICES. WELL CHUFFED WITH DEAL, CHEERS. HEAT AND REP ADDED!!!:thumbsup:
