Good points:
great picture, easy installation, and phillips customer service very quick to respond.
Bad points:
only what i can describe as a screen `backlight' flashing on every 4 seconds when in standby. then after 10 minutes, the tv switches off. only seen when dark, but really annoying!

Dylan, Bishops Stortford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I like the design although I have seen better, but for the price I can't complain. It was pretty easy to set up
Bad points:
frustrated that the settings on the back are different for a wall bracket now and ended up having to send back the first bracket I bought and had to search on the internet for a bracket that fit the new design
