Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The thin graceful design and use of high quality materials with minimal plastic was always the draw for me. Sony used to excel at minimal tasteful design and this product harkens to those days. The image quality is good. The wireless connectivity does give a level of flexibility to separate a small collection of black boxes from the elegant screen.
Bad points:
Image quality suffers a bit with sport. While foreground images like running bodies and talking heads are sharp and convincing the background when the camera is moving quickly frequently has a quality that looks like rain, a kind of graininess that is slightly distracting. Sound quality is reasonable for such small speakers but nothing to write home about.

Good points:
thin TV - that's it
Bad points:
average picture, average everyting else - also has anoying 'hum' even when in standby mode. There seems to be an electrical force field around the edge of the screen and the screen gets very hot.

Chris, Welwyn Garden City Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The product met my wife's desire to reduce the number of 'boxes' (satellite receiver, games consoles and controllers, dvd player) and cables on display! Most of the equipment is hidden away in a cupboard on the other side of the room to the LCD. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the remote also controlled my Sky+ which means I now only need one remote. Interestingly I found the best picture was with all enhancements (including Motion Flow) turned off!
Bad points:
No 1080p50 or 1080p24 support via the wireless connection, so my PS3 had to be connected to the LCD's 'Monitor' port as I use it for watching Blu-ray discs. In addition occasionally I don't get a wireless connection. The backlighting is also a little uneven. All in all only moinor quibbles for the convenience it offers!
