Carl, Leicester Home cinema enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It's easy to set up, comes with the leads you need apart from HDMI, however that's a good thing as setting it up using the optical cable gives great sound and doesn't need you faffing with the sound source every time you change devices.

The fact you can stand your TV on it makes it very easy to find a spot for. I ended up buying 3 of these, one for myself, one for my dad and one for a friend.
Bad points:
The remote is small, making it difficult to find and use.

Claudio, London Home cinema enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Plug and Play with optical digital sound cable, I didn't try the HDMI cable. Very good bass and crispy sound. Surely a huge improvement from TV speakers. Read the instruction before to complaint about the remote. You can use TV or Virgin or Skype remote to control the volume after have set it up.
Bad points:
