mike, AYR, AYRSHIRE Music listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, sounds good, does exactly what it says on the box. Easy to set up and manual easy to follow.
Bad points:
Dissapointed that the Nero Media Home 4 Essentials does not support Windows 7 which is the current operating system for most pc's, when I emailed LG they advised I contact Nero, which I did but they never replied, seems a shame that such a good system is let down by such a small detail but it does prevent you utilising the sytem to it's full potential. If you want the latest Nero compatible software it costs a penny under sixty pounds, shame you don't know that before you buy!

Chris, Lincoln Bargain hunter

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Superb value for money, looks attractive and sounds great I would definitely recommend this.
Bad points:
Is easy to set up except I got very confused wiring through a set top box into the TV but this would be the same for any surround sound. The (all) manuals need to be much clearer about how to wire up additional pieces of equipment other than just the TV.
