Pete, Aberdeen

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Just about top of the line at time of purchase. Good picture and would probably be better if I had access to HD. Lots of nice features like USB connection and smartcard reader.
Bad points:
Setup on the supplied stand leaves the whole thing a bit unstable. I'd recommend a much more robust stand!

Good points:
Excellant image quality and neat, compact deign. No unsightly buttons on display.
Bad points:
Basic operations and functions are fine but time will be required to read and digest the complicated instructions manual, there are facilities of the equipment I'll never understand.
