Martin, Peterborugh

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture, easy to set up and seems pretty wife proof so far!!
Bad points:
Only minor point really, its got HDMI inputs, Component and VGA, but no DVI connection, bit of a pain when trying to coonect a Media centre into it. I ended up just using a VGA lead so no real drama.

Gerald, Northampton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Ample connections at the rear for just about any thing you would want to plug in. I’ve got mine hooked up to a media PC and the picture quality is fantastic. Surfing the Net on a 42” wide screen is out of this world. Another thing that I particularly like is the black finish, which is so “not in your face” unlike the silver finished sets.
Bad points:
No front or side connections for hooking up games consoles or video camera (they’re at the back).
No DVBT tuner only analogue.
Sound is OK but could be better but if your really serious you’ll have it hooked up to a good surround sound system any way.
