Rpry, Southampton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The image is excellent, and I am very happy with the TV as a whole. It had enough ports on the back to accommodate all my equipment, so I was very pleased.
Bad points:
The speakers aren't that good quality, and the TV really needs an external amp, but even then the audio output isn't that strong,

The T.V has a good design and saves a lot of space in the living room compared to a conventional T.V

On close up shots when watching programmes the picture can be quite grainy.

Les, Chester

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very good picture and good looking TV, the remote has a good range as well.
Easy to install
Bad points:
Sound is terrible if you have the volume set to more than a third up, down to the position of the internal speakers i think?
I bought a new home cinema sound system from the local supermarket for about £30 and it solved the problem, the sound is now excellent. :0)
