Robert, Milton Keynes Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy set up... A few simple adjustments made to colour set up and the picture is perfect to my eyes. Hi-Def viewing is excellent both from Freeview HD and Sony Blu-Ray. Sound quality very good too. A BRILLIANT Television.
Bad points:
None that spring to mind...

Iain, Inverclyde Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great Picture and easy to use
Bad points:
Poor sound which was expected due to not much room for decent built -in speakers. Invest in a home theater system to make perfect.

Michael, Cork Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture and sound quality. Lovely looking design. Easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
The packaging gives the impression that its easy to connect the TV to the internet, alas its not that easy at all! Only a Sony branded USB Wireless LAN Adapter can be used!!! Also I've found that as my usb stick has films and pictures on it that were transferred from my MacBook the usb stick is not recognised when inserted into the usb slot.

Neil, Maltby, South Yorkshire Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We replaced our old Sony TV wth the new slim line model with 42"
screen and from day 1 it was like being iin the cinema viewing on the big screen with such clear HD images. We have now been viewing some ofour DVDs and what a difference that makes. WE got our new TV in time for the Olyimpics and the trouble was we didn't want to do anything else except watch the " telly" I have not got around to connecting the TV to the internet yet, that will be the next job....W aare realy very pleased with our purchase but not surprised as we always purchase Sony products.....
Bad points:
Have not found any yest except that once you start viewing , you dont want to stop.....
