Confirmed purchaser Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
slim design, nice looking tv, price good, very easy to use and setup. HD is excellent when connected to sky + hd, two scart sockets, I've connected my dvd to one, bought a new nintendo wii cable to plug into the rgb connections picture excellent on wii now, much more detail.
I especially like the energy saving options, I used to have a plasma 42" and use to use a lot of electric, I can't wait to see how much I've saved on my electricity, I reckon it'll be a big saving.
Bad points:
can see occasional bluring around fast moving image, like if a person is running, has a slight blur around them but very rare
Sound could be better but adequate.

Phill, Quorn, Leicestershire Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Auto set-up of stations is easy and comprehensive. It picks up quite a few more digital TV stations and radio stations from the same ariel, compared to my previous set-top box
The picture is excellent, with a range of colour balances and also a range of energy saving settings (e.g. you can use the energy saving setting 'Screen off' if you are listening to the radio stations that it picks up)
Full HD is great for my Blu-ray disks
Multi-input management is easy. Each connected input shows up on the Source OSD. You can add your own name to each, so if you have a PC graphics card HDMI input and a Blu-ray HDMI, you can name them PC & Bluray.
Bad points:
On/off swithch is well hidden under centre of screen to keep the fron design unspoilt. Standby is easier - on RH side.
Sound quality is only good, rather than outstanding, even with the enhancements applied. Better to use the optical audio out to feed your Hi-Fi
