Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Bluetooth connectivity with iphone/iPad to play music over surround sound.
Smart tv options to connect internet to system for youtube, iPlayer, etc
Bad points:
Smart tv connection options are very slow
instruction manual needs better clarity on security settings as this caused me to not be able to play DVDs initially as security settings default to not play above 12/PG ratings

Matt, Yeovil Gadget lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It has a lot to offer. 3D, Blu-Ray, Wifi-connected Internet, Apps, etc. Sound is good for the cost of the system (I've been spoilt with much meatier, dedicated amps - yet wanted something smaller/compact). Good quality pic (though see bad points). Hooks up effortlessly with the wireless rear-speaker (although you have to buy this as an extra). Plays nicely with my Samsung TV (remote volume, switching off, etc). Speakers are compact and inconspicuous.

If you are looking for a simple surround sound system with Blu-Ray / 3D (haven't got 3D TV so can't comment on this)... Then a good buy.
Bad points:
Build is not as sturdy as it looks in the pics. Remote is cheap and nasty compared to the one you get with your telly. Sluggish response to commands when using the Smart TV feature. Initial updates to software is always such a bore - get it right before shipping. Apps are slow to respond and the array is pretty uninspiring. Set-up is a fiddle and really could do with a mic for speaker set-up. The colour feels a bit over the top and needs pairing back. Sometimes requires rebooting just to get a Blu-Ray to play. iPhone remote control app is a bit hit and miss - mostly miss. Less polystyrene and more recyclable cardboard packaging wouldn't have gone amiss either.

If this puts you off - and you're in it for the apps and ability to stream movies - get an Apple TV (although Apple has limited apps currently). It's no replacement for a dedicated amp.

This set-up could have done with more of an Apple-touch. Speed of system, build of unit, simplicity of set-up and ease of use of own apps.
