MA, Greater Manchester Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great TV and picture at 46". I would reccomend the 46" over the 40" if you have the space.

The sound is also very good, I'm having to turn it down !

The low power features appealed to me and it uses half the power compared to my old 32" LCD, which is pretty good conisering it''s so much bigger :)

Overall, I woul recommend this TV, you can't really go wrong with this choice.
Bad points:
Not really a bad point, but you do have to adjust the picture settings a little to get the best picture.

Thomas, Belfast (Ireland) Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Picture quality is great (especially on Dynamic) and has different picture settings, and the full HD = WOW!
Inputs - a good selection and I put a few films on a USB stick and it was able to play them (but not entirely viewed) unlike some TV's that just display photo and/or music, and the ability to rename the inputs, albeit 6 characters max (eg HDMI1 renamed to Blue-R or PS3).
Speakers are more than adequate and volume not even passed half-way (but limited on sound fields; no Dolby or Dynamic or such but has Bass & Treble and Surround function).
Time-Shift ('E' model) - but only works on DTV/Freeview signal only, NOT Cable/Satellite (but most of these have the facility anyway so no biggie).
Plenty of settings to adjust for individual needs (Backlight, Brightness..the usual and plenty more but you do need to read the manual to know what each does).
Glass fronted makes it easy to clean and no worry of scraping the 'plastic' as on most LCD's.
On/Off switch rather than putting the TV on 'Standby' for environmental reasons.

Bad points:
PICTURE QUALITY - I know it was mentioned as a good point but a bad point is when viewing from an angle (approx 45°) when you notice the quality of the picture a bit 'washed out' but still viewable, but the colours are not as great as when sitting in front of the screen. I've read that this is the case on most LCD's but I seen this on show at a High street retailer and had a good look before purchasing and there didn't seem to be any problem. It COULD be down to my settings and I've tried but to no avail.
INPUTS - Maybe better if they were downward facing rather than side input as I've noticed that there is a bit of strain on the socket if you're using a good or heavy HDMI cable and would have made it neater as all your entertainment gear sits below the screen (me anyway). Also, which has happened twice (within a short space), when switching on the PlayStation3, I got a message stating 'a connection fault' or a 'incompatible connection' fault with the settings of the PS3 but if I reconnect the lead to another HDMI connection it works no problem but (eg next day) if I re-connect back to original port, again it works (without adjusting anything). When queried, [TV maker] said they would send an engineer but I said I'd leave it until it gets a bit frustrating or change the cable (to date it works without any problem or change of cable).
TIME-SHIFT - Would have been better if mentioned about the required input signal for this to operate (not a major issue).
GLASS FRONT - A bummer if you have wall or floor standing lights as you can see the relection more on the screen (rather than the plastic screens which 'soften' it).
TV/FREEVIEW TUNER - After tuning in stations, it would have been good to have a 'tick-box' beside the station name to choose which stations you want to delete in one move rather than delete the unwanted stations one by one.

Dave, Hayes Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Was going to get a 3D TV but decided on this instead and am not disappointed the picture quality is perfect even when not in HD would highly recommend.
Bad points:
Because the screen is glass it does reflect the light if not in right position.
