Mark, Newport, South Wales

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set-up, plenty of input methods including USB so you can play your favourite mp3s or view your photographs (no special software required) direct on your TV via a USB connection.
Bad points:
Do not buy one this size unless you can be seated at least 10 feet away from the screen or you will be disappointed with the quality of the picture.
The USB connection does not allow you to plug in an external powered USB drive.
