Score 9.0/10
Good points:
this item is very well priced for the size and its brand and i am very happy with the find !

i have used it in 1080p mode (the tv is only surposed to display 1080i but its says 1080p on screen so guess must be showing 1080p correct me if i am wrong) mode from my laptops hdmi and the picture is great for videos

it has a good range of zoom settings and an easy to follow menu system
Bad points:
there are not many but if i have to say one then:

the digital tv guide is only now and next (what i mean is you can only see whats on now and whats on next on digital tv guide it is posable to see whats on later but you can only look 1 chanel at a time and seems very slow)
