Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Everything about this TV is great. I plug in my hard drive and play all my media content through it. HD TV is awesome on it and it sounds great. All you have to do is spend time setting it up to your own preferences then away you go. You will not get a better TV for the price.
Bad points:
Standard TV is not the best picture in the world but with there are more and more channels broadcasting in HD now so it shouldn't be a problem.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The sound and picture quality is excellent, particularly when viewing high definition programmes, you can really see the difference having full HD resolution and the 600Hz Sub-field Driving technology makes.
Bad points:
The set up could be slightly easier, but still only took a matter of minutes.
