Confirmed purchaser Is it opening time?

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sound & vision, overall value for money with respect to sockets, features & resolution.
Bad points:
Perhaps volume could be a bit louder. Enclosure is a dust magnet, but we'll live with that.

Phil, Wokingham Reeeeaaaaally fussy about detail

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really straightforward to set up (programming as well as hoisting it onto the wall bracket). Freeview picture is excellent and very sharp for the resolution at the default setting. I have read a lot of reviews saying that the sound quality is poor and, while it is certainly not up to hi-fi or 5.1 standard, with a bit of tweaking in the sound setting menu actually gives quite a full, rounded sound. Contrast much higher than comparable brands in the stores when viewed side by side. Definitely go for the 40" model over the 37" - it's not much more (and in some cases less!!) and has the "clear panel" = better picture. Sorted.
Bad points:
A bit of a dust magnet.
