Great

Looks a lot of set for the money, especially with the 5 year guarantee at RS. Best telly for under £350 atm?

The HD quality on this set is truly amazing.

Input lag is apparently 43ms which is very high for gaming. Gets good reviews as a film TV though, but not for me

price beater deal thing from RSV means that they have to give you £10 for finding it cheaper, as it's 95p cheaper in two other stores they must honour it. No?

what is the input lag? Does this really affect gaming (not hard core gamers??)

For them to price match / beat a price you have to include the other sellers 5 year warranty with tv's so they would not knock a further £10 off this.

according to this test its 42ms Sony KDL40R473 I think this would only effect fps games mostly.

Why are companies so stingy with their HDMI inputs? Two isn't enough... And I wouldn't want a switcher to add more crap behind my TV...

Terrible input lag which isn't acceptable these days for TV's, cold.

My 4 yr old LG TV's both got 4, it can't cost them much to put 4.

Had a thought about it, didn't like what RS did there!!!.

Think I will buy this instead, also, RS was going to charge me for delivery, £15 to £20, JL is free delivery...

+ Lightweight
+ HD & FULL HD picture quality is just top notch
+ Sound is great but don't expect subwoofer type bass effects
+ Input lag
I play a lot of FPS games and haven't come any issues regarding input lag

- Viewing angles
- Blur/motion
Sees it can not be disabled or tweaked in the settings at all.
- UI/Menu
It's ok but LG have the best Menu/UI
- Modes
Such as Cinema, Game, Auto don't make a single difference at all.
- Thickness of TV
Not to great for wall mounting as the TV will be sticking out

I will be putting mine up for sale in the trade section so keep an eye out
