Good points:
Cant think of any.
Bad points:
Screen went faulty just after the warranty was up. Contacted sony and never recieved any reply. I am a television engineer and used to work on sony products. But I have found that the quality of their products have reduced quite considerably in the past few years. This may be because they are trying to compete with a cheaper market. But the quality of their products have definatly reduced.
