Dave, Bristol High spec fanatic

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Picture is incredible, far better than my similar 50" 100mgz model and thats pretty good.
Sound is best I have ever heard from a TV's own speakers.
Bad points:
Remote switching to different imputs should be easier/quicker but only a minor point. Manufacturer/s should immediately make available a low cost HD tuner card to all owners to take advantage of freeview HD channels without having to buy a seperate tuner.
Although the design looks great I'm not sure the clear gap along the lower edge works, especially if you can see wires/fittings behind.

Bryan, Broughty Ferry, Dundee Film and documentary lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent clear picture - just as good as the one I bought for my partner's house a year ago but substantially (40%)cheaper.
Bad points:
The ledge behing the clear perspex control display bar at the bottom of the screen is only accessible (and with difficulty) from the back of the screen and therefore it is difficult to remove dust.
