Brian, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great picture especially with high def input, standard def can look a little ropey but this is the same of all high def tv's I've seen. Sound quality is fine and loud while watching tv or blu-ray but if you want the room to shake while watching you would need a home theatre system to pipe it through. Netcast is very good, connect to your home broadband and you can view youtube videos, watch BBC iplayer, use facebook, stream movies (rental charges apply) and check weather with accuweather.com among other things. This tv does everything I could possibly want, terrific!
Bad points:
None that I have found.
