Ian, Bingley Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent image qulaity. Sound quality in the better bracket for TVs. Rather expensive, probably due to the excellent 'Ambilight' facility which otherwise is a worthwhile addition.
Bad points:
The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) is very clunky and not a patch on that included with my separate Freeeview PVR.

Manufacturer's Description

Ambilight Spectra enhances the viewing experience

Add a new dimension to your viewing experience with Ambilight Spectra. This patented Philips technology enlarges the screen further by projecting a glow of light from the back of the screen onto the surrounding wall. Ambilight automatically adjusts the colour and brightness of the light surrounding the TV to match the picture, creating an immersive viewing experience. With Ambilight Spectra movies truly come to life!

*Full HD LCD display, with a 1920 × 1080p resolution *

The Full HD screen has the widescreen resolution of 1920 × 1080p. This is the highest resolution of HD sources for the best possible picture quality.
