Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Overall a great TV.It has a fantastic picture on the HD chanels,also the none HD are the same quality.
Bad points:
As my hearing is not as good as it used to be, at the lower end of the scale I get a double sound, at first I thought it was me. Then my daughter heard it as well, she tried to adjust this.This she improved a little,now the sound output above 25 to 30 does not get any better.
I know some films the sound is low in volume,but even some normal chanels the output is low.

Easy to use and great picture.
Bad points:
At the time of sale, you pay more for the 40" than a 42", seems a bit unfair to me.

Chris, Glasgow Film and documentary lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
great picture and sound - very slim and lightweight!! Very happy with the product!
Bad points:
No way of setting a reminder on the EPG to turn the channel over at the start time of the program. To me this should be a basic, standard feature on all TV's, let alone a high end product such as a Sony.
