David, Whitstable Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As a sound system it's excellent, and the sound seems to come far from the left and right of the TV. It certainly solves the common problem of actors mumbling for theatrical effect.

The DVD (etc) player is able to take great advantage of the sound system, and the smart TV allows it to link online for additional content.

Easy to set up and plenty of speaker adjustment.

Huge amount of connectivity to other devices by cable, Bluetooth, Wifi and USB.

A USB or wireless keyboard & mouse can be added.

Sound system, versatile disc player and Smart TV all in one neat unit.
Bad points:
It keeps dropping the WiFi link but that is probably due to my weak signal.

The Smart TV function and ability to go online direct is very powerful but still in its infancy as far as available content goes. I expect many other providers will be opening up.
