Display,Value for money.Sound.

Low on design because instructions programmed into the TV.Both screens are required at the same time, unless you have a good memory.Unlike a computer from which you can print out the instructions.

derek, southsea Multi-purpose viewer

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The design is good but having just sold my year old sony 40 v lcd l have found this new tv to be inferior in every way.
The remote is fiddley to use and not as nice as my previous one.The picture quality is far worse than my previous tv-so much for all the fuss about motion flow and 100mhz etc.l am so dissapointed with this tv that l will try to get rid of it asap.This is from someone who buys nothing but Sony-l am amazed at the picture quality despite the signal source being strong and countless efforts to tweak the picture.The bleeps the that sound each time you flick through the epg and other programmes drives you mad.
