Nigel, Worcester 72" home cinema system

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Slim, Looks good on the wall, good sound quality. Perfect for Sky HD, Blueray or HD gaming
Bad points:
when using standard T.V or standard Sky the picture is blown up to the screen size, this gives a significant drop in picture quality, if closer than 3-4mts away you can see the pixels on the screen, so the further away from the T.V the better. You will find that the adverts on the T.V are broadcast in a higher quality than the programs. I don't belive this is down to the T.V but the quality of the broadcast and you will probably get the same with any that you buy.
