David, London Occasional TV watcher

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture.
Bad points:
Difficult to see where to turn it on and off. We have had to put white sticky paper on the on/off switch to be able to see it. Find this to be the case with all the Sonys we've got. Sound not wonderful if you are hard of hearing, but no TV is.

Robert, Cheshire Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The frame is outstanding. Every other TV of this type has either a shiny black or white frame. This shiny surface detracts from the viewing pleasure. The software is better than others as demonstrated at digital switchover when it did not miss a beat and avoided continual retuning during the switchover. I have two TVs of this model, one at home and one at a holiday flat, let out. There has only been positive feedback from people who have rented the flat.

Geoff, Lochgilphead Film and documentary lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
A truely portable flat screen TV with integrated digital tuner.
Bad points:
I only have access to an analogue service at the moment. However the picture quality is nowhere near as good as I get with my larger Sony Bravia TV (KDL-26S2030).
