Giga, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's a Sony.

Can't get much better for that price. You will read comments about weak audio but if you live in a flat and don't necessarily mean to disturb your neighbours, it feels quite right.

Image has slight issues with moving letters because of heavy shadowing but it doesn't seem to be a massive problem aside from movie credits.

Tried playing some games on it as well, very satisfied.
Bad points:
The stand is not very good. Design wise and stability wise. I wish they went for simpler.

The TV has a booting time of about 10-15 seconds... But that's really not a major issue, just being picky.
