Andrew, Liverpool Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is a good looking TV with amazing picture quality. Images are superbly rendered from all the inputs I use (Freeview, DVD and PS3 - both games and Blu Ray). Now superceded by newer models but, unless you're desperate to get Freeview HD built in (and I reckon that it'll be better to buy a Freeview HD set top box in a year or so once the price falls) this represents much better value given the discounts now available.
Bad points:
As usual with flat screen TVs the sound quality from the built in speakers is not great (not terrible, but not great). The best solution is to buy a surround sound system - in fact it's pretty pointless spending all that money of a big TV and not having a sound system to go with it.

Alfredo, Middlesex High spec fanatic

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Clear sharp picture, high contrast, no dead pixels. User interface is so easy and natural to use. Enough input connectors for any need. DLNA connectivity is great, works fine with TwonkyMedia and MythTV. Bravia Sync works nicely with Playstation 3. Can play videos from USB stick. Great TV in general very satisfied with the product.
Bad points:
It definitely could be better if it had Internet TV, and Freeview HD tuner integrated. I though it had when I bought it, but all logos and ads are very confusing. DLNA client play very few video formats, more MPEG2, MPEG4, and Quicktime formats would be desirable, so I don't have to invest so much time changing formats of my videos.
Wireless internet connection would be better as well.
