Rob, Colchester Occasional TV watcher

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A good size (65" would have been too big for us)
Bad points:
The 'auto' remote is quite fiddly.
Once the TV has properly started, it's fine but the buttons are quite slow to interact initially.

Bad points:
The TV I purchased failed within 1 week, this was replaced no problem, but Sony customer service is now based in Egypt and is not good at all. I also purchased a surround sound system, this also failed and Sony had two attempts at repairing it , in the end they where very unhelpful and I had to send an email to the Director of Sony UK, then they helped me and in the end gave me a refund and £100.00 in compensation. I would not by Sony again.
