Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Love the Ambilight, very atmospheric.
Bad points:
The product is advertised as having PC-link to enable wireless connectivity from PC to Screen. This functionality was my main purchasing point. However, on receipt of the product it became clea that PC Link is only software enablement and that other wireless products (in ADDITION to a wireless router) were required. Todate I have not managed to enable this capability, it is poorly specified and poorly supported (not descrobed in any detail in the whole box of manuals which come with the TV). Had I know this to be the case I would have purchased the cheaper Ambilight TV without PC Link.

Nick, Heywood , Manchester.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Nice design. Good remote. Ambilight is brilliant.
Bad points:
This TV has a design fault - DO NOT BUY ONE - it has a strobing backlight and the backlight bulbs fail leaving bars across the screen. The bulbs do not last long and Philips are well aware of this. It is a shame because ambilight is superb.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great picture and sound.
Bad points:
You seem to have to wait for it to warm up before turning it on, after it has been switched off at the plug for the night.
