Andy, York

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The HD image is sharp and colourful, while the in-built speakers give a much better quality of sound than I was expecting. The Ambilight is superb and I find myself wondering how I ever managed without it.
Bad points:
SD (Standard definition) images are prone to artifacts and pixelisation. This effect CAN be reduced to some degree by adjusting the picture settings.
