Roy, nothing

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It has quite a good picture quality.
Bad points:
I has been back to the workshop three times since I purchased the item.
Twice during the first 6 months.
The main circuit board has been replaced twice.
For the price I paid for the machine it is outragious that it should keep on braking down.

Rene, London (UK) Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A high-end 200 mHtz Motion flow TV.
Very good pictue from both ordinary or BluRay DVDs
Bad points:
I m disappointed that I could not upgrade the firm-ware so that it will be able o play/show 3D programs.
It looks like I will have to get another TV if I want to have a 3d compatible machine.
