Chris,

Score 6.0/10
Good points:

Brilliant screen
Beautiful
Simple to use
4 Pairs of Glasses
Bad points:
Limited connectivity

no seriously.. Limited connectivity

I don't think you quite understand the limited connectivity.

I have an Xbox 360, a 3D Blueray player and a Sky box. and I had to buy a component cable for the 360 in order to plug all three in at the same time,
it advertises
- SVGA x 1
- Component input x 1
- Composite input x 1
but this is all ONE INPUT, if you use one of them you lose the other two. you get 2 HDMI, a Scart and a Component/Composite/SVGA input for a maximum of 4 connections. in this day and age...

I have an awesome SONY sound bar to match the TV, but wait, what's this.. a home cinema quality 50" 3D Smart TV with zero audio out connections... you honestly cannot make this stuff up. the Sound bar has more types of input than the damn TV has but cant even be used in conjunction with the TV

Oh, its not compatible with third party wall mounts. you have to use its own one which is an absolutely awful design.

Its the little details that make a good product great, or in this case, make an amazing product... disappointingly adequate.

Steve, Bristol Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Image quality when viewing HD is superb, 3D via a 3D blue ray player is fantastic. Don't believe you can get better for the money. The fact the stand doubles up as a wall bracket is a very nice touch.
Bad points:
No 2D to 3d up scaling, HD free view would be preferred
