Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality.
Wall mountable.
Excellent size for the Kitchen.
Bad points:
Tricky and awkward switching between DVD and TV. The buttons on the remote for DVD functions are tiny and nbot clearly marked.
Sound is tinny even with the bass full up....doesn't seem to make a lot of difference, but can't really expect too much from this type and size TV.
