Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Exellent picture quality, also it's a Philips make with Pace input.
Bad points:
Hope they sort the sound out as you have to put the TV sound up as well as the freeview box's, other wise a cracking piece of kit

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Freeview HD at a low price. Box design is good. Easy to setup and use
Bad points:
DOes not do what it says on the tin. No CEC compatability (EasyLink on the setup menu) and Philips have no plans to introduce it, and are unaware that it is advertised on the box.

paul, sandbach

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It was very easy to set up and familiarize myself with the features. The quality of standard definition was definately enhanced and high definition was as good as my satelite system downstairs. overall a good looking set doing exactly what it says on the box and i would recommend it to anyone for use on a second tv set.
Bad points:
not enough high definition programmes as yet. not the sets fault though.

joel, Bradford

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
easy enough to setup there are automatic updates which saves time searching. the power saver mode turns the unit to standby after 3 hours (optinal). looks very good has a sky or vergin media style Tv menu and can set reminders and auto turn over when the programe starts.
Bad points:
the price.
for what it is basic it cost alot, on the Tv guide menu you can't switch to a programe by pressing ok (like you can on sky vergin media) you have to back out and go into a sub menu which takes time and gets annoying after a while. if you press rec. by mistake you cannot use your hd freeview box until the programe ends unless you hold in a button and press another right after it.
