Most helpful reviews

Peter, Yeovil Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I like the idea of the Bravia Sync and the ability to connect other compatible units Blu-ray, Av, Speakers etc., utilising just one remote !
Bad points:
The on-screen TV guide text is quite small to read and the buttons on the remote likewise !

Also when accessing Youtube I couldn't find any explanation on how to obtain the on-screen keypad in the instructions, it was just by chance that I pressed enter on the highlighted search, initially I tried writing directly in the adjacent box utilising the remote which only changed the channel !

James, Surbiton Sports and games fan

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Design. Picture Quality. Connectivity.
Bad points:
I have had a re-occuring fault with this TV since new. It's not gone to be repaired for the same fault no less than 4 times. The manufacturer will still not replace the set. I get it back from the repairers and everything is fine for 4-6 months and then the set completely stops working with no sound or picture. I am so tired of the inconvenience. Every electronic product I have is the same brand but this has really made me think twice. Pretty disgusted actually.
