maurice, Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
happy with most of the applications, and the colours and sharpness of the picture.
Bad points:
operating instructions could be more fully expletive. Only the most basic information is given. Things seem to be too technically setup. To people who are not technically minded it would help for more simple explanations. I am not too troubled by this, although I am sure that if more simple explanations could be given I would perhaps be able to use all the good facilities available to me

Brian, Mansfield Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great picture, good quality and design.
Bad points:
When viewing HD (any channel) there is a slight break in the sound
which is very annoying. I believe it is a TV problem rather than the aerial
which is almost new .

Paul, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic picture and features
Bad points:
The set will not recognise non sony HDMI connected products and switch to them when they are turned on. Its a manual process which is unhelpful!. Given that Sky and Virgin boxesarent Sony and they dont make a Blu ray recorder the opportunity to buy these as sony products didnt even exist. Frustrating aspect to an other wise great TV
