phil , bury st edmunds Multi-purpose viewer

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Carries most of the good Sony factors, good inputs and good picture when the bad points aren't happening.
Bad points:
1)Crashes and switches off frequently when pressing the programme guide button. 2)Slow and frustrating when trying to skip through channels when pressing the prog up button. 3)Screen blanks out frequently when connected to a computer when it thinks it has lost the connection. 4)Can be very difficult to see on a sunny day, much better when the room is dark.
