Keith, Liverpool Sports and games fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Picture quality is very good when watching in HD. Very nice to look at , quite slim and modern looking.
Bad points:
The stand is not so good as it is a bit wobbly. Not too bothered as I am wallmounting it. The sound quality is ok but couldn't say great. But again I have it connected through a surround sound system which sounds great.

Picture quality is average when not in HD. However overall for the price I would buy again, in fact I am probably going to get another one smaller screen though for the bedroom.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to instal, took about 3 or 4 minutes, looks good!
Bad points:
We tried for a while to view the hd channels that we know are available in our area, but after speaking to an engineer it appears the signal may not be strong enough yet, and we need to wait until it is turned up? So although the tv has hd freeview you might not be able to get this, depends on the area, and the strength of the signal.
