Most helpful reviews

Neil, Cirencester Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The sound quality is simply the best of any small screen LCD TVs I have seen, and I have tried a lot.

Set up is a dream, and the picture quality is also as good as any I have seen.
Bad points:
Picture definition drops off slightly when viewed at an angle, but not such that it becomes a problem

All channels need to be retuned whenever a new channel becomes available, as some channels don't seem to appreciate the changes, but this is a very small problem, and certainly would not justify me scoring the TV down.

Tim, Walthamstow Sports and games fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good design quality and sharp pictures.
Bad points:
No adjustment to screen angle (that I'm aware of). Need to prop it up so screen is not angled for optimal viewing on kitchen worktop.
A very long time to switch on, but that seems common with TVs now.
