Helen, Edinburgh Technophobe

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
easy to set up and use, stylish looking, so far it's done everything I want it to.
Bad points:
can't seem to get 4OD, when I try and use the internet search function it doesn't help. Better instructions on this function would be beneficial however there is a helpline phone number which I plan to try

Steve, Ipswich Good Design Lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a superb value purchase. The Blu Ray and DVD upscaling is amazing. The recordings from Freeview are also excellent. Ignore what some people say about recordings overlaping and not working - you can input recordings manually and put a minutes gap inbetween and all is well.
The smart hub feature is fab as well - the iplayer on a big TV screen is great quality.
Bad points:
The instruction manual is not very clearly written and it takes a little practice to get used to some of the functions. Some are not as logical as they could be, but its not a major issue.

John, Glasgow Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality, BBC iplayer works well although interface a bit clunky. Easily connected to stereo amp to play CD's and improve sound quality from DVD's without having to invest in a full surround sound system. Offers a lot of features like pausing TV and BBC iPlayer without having to subscribe to those Sky or Virgin bandits.
Bad points:
Can be a bit confusing when connected to a Samsung TV, remote control operates both but confusing which Is being controlled. Series record doesn't work unless device is on.
