KEVIN, Liverpool Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
+ Picture Quality (which is excellent as long as you change the standard settings)
+ Slim Design of TV
+ Design of Remote Control
+ Intuitive and easy to operate (clear menu system)
Bad points:
- Seems to be some sort of filtering with Youtube (i.e. the TV seems to omit official music videos from search results. I'm not sure what the rights issues are here.)
- Remote Control buttons have a stiff, clicky action. I prefer a softer action to buttons (but I'm nit-picking here).

Geoff, Cheshire Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Just unpack, switch on and enjoy!
Mine immediately "found" my home network and it could immediately play any compatible media in it found without any "tweaking" on my part.
I was able to "sign in" to my YouTube and Twitter accounts and use them almost as if I were sat at my PC, though watching Youtube video was a much better experience on the big screen!
There is oodles of video available from the net to suit all interests, and the high quality makes it a pleasure to watch.
Oh! and the broadcast HD TV is amazing too!!
I particularly like the fact that the TV looks so good even when it is switched off....I could just sit and stare at it for ages!
Bad points:
Sometimes it has that agravating habit (doubtless inherited from it's cousin "the PC") that for no apparent reason it will not log-in to sites that it previously would access without a problem.
Most times, that is fixed by "refreshing" the internet connection.
I cannot recommend the on screen keyboard, a wireless or IR physical one would be an improvement.
No Information about any possibility of firmware upgrades (thinking about the addition of the "Players" for other channels than just BBC)
The "On Screen" manual is not as useable as a hard copy, and what happens if you can't get a picture??

Paul, Leeds Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great picture
Design (monolithic look is just amazing)
Easy to set up
Connects easily with separate sound system through HDMI
Takes up so much less space than my old CRT
5 year warranty (depending on who you purchase from)
Bad points:
Viewing angle (slight change in picture colour and sharpness when viewed from an angle)
Very reflective screen (so watch out where you place this TV relative to windows)
Nothing else so far (I'm very pleased with purchase)
