Andrew, Ashby De La Zouch Occasional TV watcher

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good picture when working ok
Good sound
Bad points:
The TV is only 20 months old but the picture has an image distortion (ghosting) for approx 5 minutes after switching it on. Unfortunately my guarantee from the supplier is not valid, as he has gone out of business.
The picture is slow to appear after switching on the set. (30 secs) which is frustrating.
There is a time delay when you change channel which is frustrating also. although is only 6 or 7 seconds.
