Nigel, Guildford Multi-purpose viewer

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Really didn't like the fact that the Internet based Apps like I-Player, (and those not yet present such as ITV-Player, 4-on-Demand etc) do not update themselves - and there is no way of installing the missing ones). Also no WiFi receiver included.

David, Belper Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good quality and reliability - have always purchased Sony TV's and Hi-Fi equipment
Bad points:
Was purchased for the claimed internet access and use of BBC i-player and ITV player. This is not as easy as I was lead to believe and I now access these services through Wii and PS3 devices.
This aspect of the product is very disappointing and very little helpful advice available on Sony website (unless I have missed something!)
