Tony, Godstone Home cinema enthusiast

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value and up to date features such as full web access and a whole host of other useful add-ons such as providing linked desktop PC (or other similar devices) access for music, photos, etc.
Bad points:
Web access is not as good as it should be due to very fiddly remote control - even controlling the unit with the recommended Sony App via my iPhone wasn't much better. No doubt will improve on later models.

Daniel, Norwich Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great product, installed free Serviio on my PC and stream all my movies and music to this.
Bad points:
Only downside is the few buttons are situated on top of the unit. Mine lives in a cabinet and it's a pain to get to the power and eject buttons.

Good points:
The ease of use and uncharged use of online film rental like Lovefilm, in comparison with the XBOX, which you need to pay for the XBOX live.

No VGA output for connecting to old monitors and video projectors.
