Colin, Peterborough High spec fanatic

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Because of the PS3 base to the programme getting to and changing things is very easy . The fact that it is white makes the t.v merge into the surroundings of the room better and doesn`t seem as big
Bad points:
the fact that you have to connect a lead from your t.v back to your computer to do any of the internet functions makes it annoying , and impossible for me
