Terry, Crawley Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Reliable picture.

It has 2xUSB sockets which can play and record media.

The best bit:uses wifi direct to deliver all the stuff from your local computer network at the press of some buttons.

Audio improves greatly by the addition of a subwoofer.
Bad points:
Dreadful instruction manual.

Opera TV store is absolute rubbish - no decent apps - no browser. Internet pretty much limited to iPlayer and You Tube, oh and it's got a Netflix button!

Good points:
low operating temperature of kit particularly the transformer , compared with Samsung we had before which was very good.
Bad points:
Would have preferred a silver surround to the screen but it's a small point. It had the best picture in the showroom

Deborah, Northampton Film and documentary lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Has a great picture and sound.
Bad points:
There is very little point in the dedicated Netflix button if you are a BT customer with a home hub 3 as they simply aren't compatible. Sony blame BT, and BT blame Sony. End result, can't watch Netflix on my tv, but can on my tablet. Very disappointing.
