The set does a very good job of upscaling freeview pictures.
3 HDMI ports and 2 scart.
Upscaled pictures from scart very good too.
Bad points:
Getting detailed program information with the info button very long winded.
No dedicated buttons for different inputs.
Sound a little weak but better than most.

Purchaser

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up.
Bad points:
Very poor picture quality. Picture quality still poor when returned after repair under warranty even when they 'updated the software' Had high expectations when purchased but was very dissapointed with what I bought. Wouldnt buy Sony again.
The picture quality of our 18 year old JVC is far superior to the Sony.

David, Stockport Film and documentary lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Bought for my 83 year old mother to use when analogue was switched off. She can use it so thats fine for me
Bad points:
This does not have a dedicated subtitle on/off button on the remote. this means that i have set the titles to be on in the menu, which is ok for most viewing, but its too complicated for her to turn them off when she wants ie when football is on.
