Robert, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good quality picture in both hd and non-hd, easy to set up and use. Internet option is good but could be better.
Bad points:
Limited internet site access and limited configuration for network access to media. These should not be too difficult for LG to improve but no info on web site.

Craig, Bellshill, North Lanarkshire. Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The razor frame makes it more appealing to look at than the panasonic Viera I was looking at. The built-in media player plays virtually everything straight from the USB ports on the left side - this is why I got it. No more converting and burning DVD's - just download and play from a USB stick! 4 HDMI's, built-in Freeview HD tuner and DLNA make this one of the best plasma panels on the market for the money :)
Bad points:
Speakers aren't the best, but let's face it, you don't buy a TV like this without getting a surround sound system!
