Sion, rawtenstall Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture and sound quality. Internet apps are limited but easy to use and access. Did I mention the picture quality? Outstanding especially compared to competitor 50" tv on any technology Inc. LED! and the price - very cheap
Bad points:
The remote control whilst allowing full function control can be a bit complicated and overwhelms my wife and the kids. Also some functions are useless if you don't get comparable LG surround sound/DVD/blueray.

fez, Rushden, Northants Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased with all aspects of this tv, from the style, picture and sound too no static on the screen, so no dust to clean off.
Bad points:
This is not so much a bad point as just to inform any future purchaser we were aware of slight blur during veiwing over the first few days. There is no problem with the picture now and we put this down to the tv settling.
