james, Buxton Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks great, stylish frame and good remote, very good picture on HD and HD channels. Extra features like USB inputs for picture viewing and internet access is fantastic. Very happy with my purchase!
Bad points:
Internal speakers not great, volume has to be fairly high to hear conversations. Screen has a built in light sensor that adjust the brightness of the pictutre depending on room light, but in bright sunshine the colours are a little over powering and in a dark room the picture is too dark, although the feature can be turned off / adjusted.

Good points:
Picture is great. Ability to plug in other devices is good(I have a nex 3 camera).
Remote good
Bad points:
Voice sound is bad, sometime difficult to make out voices during a film especially if film playing music at same time. Is there a software upgrade or can external speakers be used to enhance voice?
