Lesley, Stourbridge Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having read other reviews of the product whilst waiting for delivery, I cannot understand some of the criticisms came from. Overall I think that it is brilliant, and believe that the image deficiency is due to the occasional "dip" in the digital signal causing pixellating, rather than the TV being less than good.
Bad points:
Not being free

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Remote Control - Found the remote control to be very frustrating with regard to the 'double annulus' arrangement of buttons - Outer annulus for Guide, Return, Options etc and the inner annulus for selecting sub menu's etc. All to easy to inadvertantly press the wrong button.
