Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Smart design, ease of use, picture quality, and slim frame.
Bad points:
No bad points, sound quality good for a TV, but as you would expect not to top spec Hi Fi standards. We bought a Samsung sound bar to go with this TV which is excellent.

Keith,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality, easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
The unit is so slim it is a shame that the power cord and two of the HDMI sockets face rearward meaning that you cannot fit it as flush to the wall as you could if they came out at right angles.
