It doesn't work on Blu-ray...PlayStation3 or Blu-Ray DVD players. The image quality is poor, not Fully HD despite saying it is. Only HD quality i is is sharper image than terrestrial tele. Waste of money. Sound is also poor quality some sort of echo.

Ian, Blackpool Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Looks fantastic, swivel stand is good. Picture quality on games consoles is excellent.
Bad points:
Picture quality through a standard SKY+ box isn't great, a bit grainy compared to my older LG Plasma. Annoying tune plays when you switch it on or off.
