Probably the best 40" TV under £1k on the market (http://whathifi.com/Review/Sony-KDL-40W4000/) available at a great price from a very reliable retailer Richer Sounds. Full description of the TV is available on their website following the link.
If you want a 5 year panel protect deal it'll cost another £100 on top however - and you can get the TV from places such as ElectroSaver for £100 less intotal after extended warranties are added. http://www.electrosaver.co.uk/product_details.asp?id=LCD%20TV&Product=Television&productid=KDL40W4000
However, the best part of this deal is that if you have a John Lewis near you and a Richer Sounds (Milton Keynes for example) then JL will price match the £999.95 and include their legendary 5 year warranty as is standard on all expensive electrical things.
Hope this helps anyone looking for an awesome TV, I'm going to get the set from John Lewis this week, after visiting Richer Sounds and getting that price match.
