richard, lancashire Occasional TV watcher

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The picture is great and I love it going through the blue ray player. All in all I am very please with this telly also 3 years quarantee from the manufacturer at no extra cost
Bad points:
it is slow to start up, this does not matter to me but it may do to some people. the sound needs to be turned up to 30 to be audiable for me. it may be that my other television made by the same manufacturer is to good having suround sound built in, it only needs to be on 15.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Connection to the internet is easy., style and design is good.
Bad points:
None, bought as a replacement to a Toshiba LCD, this sony is too complex, making picture adjustment, difficult to get right, over bright colour, sound is very "tinny", bass adjustment makes the whole cabinet vibrate. won't play video via network connection. Its a dust magnet, unlike a toshiba.

Good points:
Good picture.
Bad points:
Old discontinued model. (recently purchased).
Sold as Full HD but requires purchase of Freeview HD Set Top Box to receive HD programmes.
Does not receive all freeview stations. 'Guide Plus' does not seem to work.
Not value for money. (three months on, newer, more up-to-date models, not requiring additional purchase of HD box to receive HD, are on sale at a lower price than I paid for this discontinued model.
