Geoffrey, Croydon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
User friendly and very menu access. I love it because its not complicated compare to the Sony i used to have.
The only problem i have with it is the size
Bad points:
The only problem i have with it is the size which makes it very difficult to handle, not very sure if its the shape. You have to be careful to handle it else it might slip from your hands, apart from that i love this product.
