Good points:
Picture quality is excellent and the features are varied and very useable
Bad points:
Build quality not the most robust and the extra costs of having to pay for all the enhancements to play hd etc is considerable. The costs of the other add ons such as dvr and tv add ons also very expensive

Oscar, Reading/Berkshire gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ability to take all your multimedia stuff with you everywhere. Ideal for use mostly when travelling ie. watching movies whilst on a plain or on a train. All in all a brilliant entertainment device.
Bad points:
Although the sound quality is very good, in my experience, the volume level is not powerfull enough while using the device on a noisy environment like inside of a plane.
