stephen, Stourbridge Music listener

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The main part of the system is very easy on the eye and the size of the surround speakers do not clutter up the room.
The sound effect is brilliant and often gets commented upon by visitors we may have.
Bad points:
Would have been better if the speakers had have been wireless.
It can be a little anoying having to scroll across to HDMI every time you switch the TV on.

Tim, Worcester Movie fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks brilliant and sound crisp and clean. loads of built in app features like BBC iplayer, youtube and loads more.
Bad points:
only one brightness setting so its either on tv its dark and blue rays are perfect or tv's perfect and the bluerays are too bright. and once you are playing a blue ray you can not adjust the colour, making you havet to switch off the set to adjust it and then hope it correct when it goes back on.

Dave, Zurich, Switzerland Movie fan

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good manufacturing quality and good sound once installed
Bad points:
Installation instructions are pretty poor

User interface is not great

Let down badly by annoying delay of sound leading to video sync issues. Sony have tried to fix it with a new software release but they're not there yet. This is very disappointing for a so called premium brand. Step up to the plate Sony, this needs to be fixed

Andrew, Wirral Gadget lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good looking, good price, good sound, good connectivity
Bad points:
Would prefer unit that can be stacked on more easily. And more important for me, the lack of full set of discrete input selection codes makes it difficult to use reliably with universal remote controls such as Logitech Harmony.
