Peter, Littlehampton Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice looking set with good picture
Bad points:
It seems much more expensive than comparable sets, but that may be the fault of the dealer I went to. Poor instruction book if you want to take advantage of any of the more advanced facilities.

Good points:
Great vibrant colours. Quality build and design. Brand reliability.
Bad points:
As usual with LCD night scenes are not very good. If you have moonlit scenes the image goes blurry, kind of foggy.

James, London Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Design, clarity of both sound and vision, ease of assembly, ease of tuning and set up, ease of use, compatibility with a nice Sony 5.1 theatre thing that I got for an earlier television, overall pretty damn good.
Bad points:
Some of the controls aren't immediately obvious.

Erm... that's it really. Everything else about the set's pretty good. Had one brief fault early on, the remote stopped working properly - lasted three or four days, but I unplugged the set for a couple of hours and it started working again once I plugged it back in. Otherwise nothing wrong at all.
