Tricia, London Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It turns off if not used after a certain amount of time, to conserve energy.
The AV mode button which changes the picture to different modes is handy.

The picture is great quality.
Bad points:
The remote control diagram shows a handy remote control light, so the buttons are easy to see in the dark, however the remote does not have that function which is disappointing.
The owners manual is not very helpful when you want to adjust picture etc. the cd was not very helpful either, it did not open easily and i gave up trying to use it.
