Alex, Weston Super Mare Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up in Stand Mount or Wall Mount Good quality Picture and sound. Looks like many other TVs but I believe it to be vastly superior to most of them even ones at a much higher price.
Bad points:
Very poor manual only on disk, basic written set up is good but to obtain all the advanteges this TV has it requires the Owners Manual "on the supplied disk" so you need computer.

Barry, Littlehampton Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture, sound is fine, other reviewers have complained about it but it is OK. We use a Dolby surround sound system incorporated to embellish the sound when using Sky or Blu-ray, without doubt we can lift the roof off if we wish and the quality is excellent. We have taken the LG four year extra plan which we felt was important because of problems with a previous 40" LCD TV, we have had to write it off after 3 Years.
Bad points:
The casing seems to attract a little more dust than normal, but we accept this with the extra excellent qualities we have found in our purchase of the LG flat screen.

David, London Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great picture both SD and HD, very easy to setup had the PS3, Wii and Freeview up and running without problems. DLNA works great with a Synology Diskstation as well. Can't recommend enough.
Bad points:
Nothing really, I wish there was a button on the remote that took you directly to the media player, but other than that nothing bad to comment about.
