Mark, Bristol Bargain hunter

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great sound for a 2.1 system, especially as it was for the TV in the play room.

Using iPod means selecting menu from TV, and to play video having a lead connected to TV instead of playing through player

michael, Movie fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Internet features, expansive surround sound effect, sharp picture.
Bad points:
Speaker cables too short and no way to extend without voiding warranty. Audio/visual sync problems were terrible at first, but Sony have issued a fix which seems to have largely resolved this issue. Unable to use iTunes Genius function when using iPod dock- only recognises a limited amount of folders on iPod.

Keith, Worcester Bargain hunter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Bought this to provide a better sound than the standard Sony TV. It works well. No frills just greatly improved sound.It was good value for money.
Bad points:
Not being an expert in setting up such equipment I still have difficulty with the remotes and in my attempts to get all 'instructions' on to one of them. I have yet to 'sort out' the imperfections, probably my fault,but won't attempt this until after the Olympics otherwise I might miss something important!

Ben, UK Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy setup and available at low price!
Bad points:
Sound syncronisation through Sony HDMI cable to a Sony TV a little off - you can recalibrate this, but it's easier just to mute thr TV. Bravia Sync could work a little better.
