Stephen , London Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good visuals. Setup was incredibly easy and will automatically detect any hdmi inputs you connect up.
Bad points:
Sound was a big letdown. Thankfully I have a home cinema system to connect to for the audio. I did have a problem with lip sync between the two devices though until I plugged the inputs direct into the TV and fed an optical lead from the TV out to the home cinema input

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good looking TV but didn't get much time to know much about it as I had to send it back for a small but annoying fault.
Bad points:
Polystyrene ball stuck between the front glass and the LCD screen. \should have been spotted during last test.
