Bad points:
HD ready thats a joke without another box to recieve HD signals you cant watch HD television whats the point in having Bravia ( the brands software that links all their equipment together) if you need another box a separate remote if I had realised that this manufacturer was dumping inadequate goods on the market I would never have brought it I am now stuck with it
