Michael, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, does everything I need it to do (surf the net and watch BBCi player etc on the flat screen tv). Automatically worked with the TV without having to change any settings.
Bad points:
Instructions very vague, and do not refer to wireless mouse/keyboard supplied. Had to look up if anyone else had trouble - they did - and only then discovered a tiny wireless dongle hidden INSIDE the mouse, next to the battery. Bizarre!

Scott, Coventry General user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Small, cheap and a nice design. Perfect for turning the living room TV into a coputer unit
Bad points:
Incredibly small. No disc drive makes installing software more difficult unless you are computer savvi.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
the size of the pc is it's ultimate sales pitch, and the ability to play hd movies via the hdmi slot is a major bonus.
It's very easy on the eye (only the power button is visible from looking over the top of the tv screen).
Add a bluetooth keyboard and with a 46 inch tv it's the ultimate you tube experience (infra red wireless keyboards get interference from tv's and may not operate at a decent distance).
Bad points:
it's not the fastest pc, but i use it for youtube and ebay mainly and it's plenty fast enough for that (handles movies fine though).
a wireless keyboard and mouse is a must if your going to use it on a large flat screen tv (as suggested in the spec), mine is 46 inches so you need to sit away from it, i've bought a bluetooth keyboard with built in touch pad, it's perfect.
