Garry, Kilbarchan Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great looking tv. I am using this tv for general family entertainment. i.e. watching dvds, playing WII and PS3, etc and the tv handles all of these demands well. Standard factory set up is adequate and tv can also be adjusted to suit your own tastes.
Bad points:
Can't really think of anything bad to say about it.
