Mike, Buckie, Scotland Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I enjoy the picture quality. For a television at this price, I find it has very good picture.
Bad points:
I bought the television because of the wi-fi connectivity. I have never used this function yet, since the description of the television didn't mention the fact I require a separate dongle.
