Mark, Leicester Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I don't give 10s easily, but the picture quality is frankly phenominal. It is easily the best thing about the tv. It's has oodles of connectivity, which is wasted on me as I have an external soundbar so only use 1 hdmi in, but if you want to connect just about anything to it , it has the ports. In general it's a great tv.
Bad points:
So it's a great tv and I scored it highly, so it's contradictory to say, if I had my time again I wouldn't buy it? Why? Well its a smart tv, but along with everyone I know who has one we all agree on some basics. Firstly everyone turns of voice and gesture control in the first week. It's just annoying when it pops up over your screen at random times or when you scratch your head. Also the apps store is limited at the moment, with the only app I use regularly being Skype. I don't use any of the social media because the tv doesn't have profiles for different users so it my Facebook or the kids. It's a personal choice, but if I had my time again I would have selected an older 60" screen which isn't yet available in the range and connected a high quality camera (cam quality is poor) for use with Skype. This would give me the fantastic screen quality, the useful apps, HD camera quality, rather than fuzzy and a personally preferable screen size.

John, Chislehurst Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Amazing picture quality, almost 3D without the glasses. 3D is also good when applied to 2D TV and recordings, even photos.

Sound quality, considering that there are no visible speakers is also far better than expected.

Hard to see where new higher HD TVs can improve on the picture quality.
Bad points:
Instruction manual could be better. Motion & voice controls still to be fully investigated but so far not too impressed. However, overall quality more than makes up for this.
