Calvin, Bracknell Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing price for a set of this quality. The light sensor works brilliantly in the late afternoon when the sun comes through the window. The 3rd HDMI on the side is ideal for when the kids want to hook-up a games console.
Bad points:
I haven't found any yet.
