Ian, Glasgow Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The picture quality is truly excellent. Much better than even high-end LED and LCD sets. The set looks very attractive, particularly when wall mounted. The menu system is intuitive and easy to navigate. The USB plays movies, pictures and music without any fuss, serving up a good menu system in doing so.
Bad points:
The glass front catches a lot of reflection and so you need to be careful when positioning the set. The built in speakers are average at best and so the set really needs to be used with a surround sound setup.

Jason, Aylesbury

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have hung this tv on the wall and it looks amazing being frameless. The colours are extremely vivid, especially in HD. Loads of connection options. I have never had a plasma before always LCD and was going to buy an LED TV because of the thinness, bur believe me for a plasma this is as thin as it gets. Looking forward to the pending wireless connection as well. This TV will then be complete.
Bad points:
Wireless is not available, but coming soon!!!
