John,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sound and DVD/Bluray/CD features are very good. It seems good value for money.
Bad points:
My BT Youview box does not work with the HDMI1 or HDMI2 inputs (no picture, no sound). I am unsure whether the BDVN590 is faulty or whether the BT-provided HDMI cable is inadequate.

Richard, Gadget lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent interconnectivity with other Sony devices using 'Sync Menu' (TV & HDD Recorder)
Great looking
Excellent sound quality
Inbuilt WiFi very reliable and good access to online and network services (e.g. Netflix)
Bad points:
Non-removeable speaker wire from subwofer makes extending wiring more difficult.
Menus look differnet from all other devices (but all very easy to use).
Side access disk is a little 'fiddly' when the space is restricted.

Nick, Barnsley Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Awesome value for money, only minutes to set up with auto calibration! Simply plug in the jack, set calibration device in seating position and press ok! Calibrates with a series of tones to each speaker and was spot on! I adjusted the front and center volumes slightly and added more bass to the woofer (personal preference) Magnetic fluid speakers are outstanding with no lack in clarity at top end volume which is excellent for blu rays such as Saving Private Ryan!
I researched for many months looking at reviews and comparing products and I must say I am not regretful in the slightest. Awesome price, awesome slike design, awesome sound and awesome functionality.
Bad points:
User manual could be a little more informative but as its interface is really easy to navigate through this was only a minor point.

Stella, Wimborne Music/home cinema lover

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Sound is excellent
Bad points:
Took me 2 days to figure out how to set it up and there are lots of wires to hide. Still not quite right as it has my Sony DVD Recorder as the number one player which I have to go through if I just want to watch TV so have to use 3 remote controls even though they are all Sony appliances. The internet access is very poor and difficult to navigate around. Cannot read the print on my Facebook page. Anything particularly interesting, e.g. movies and music, I have to subscribe to.
