Most helpful reviews

Vivith, COVENTRY High spec fanatic

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
1. Image quality: Images are very clear and vibrant. This TV has 100Hz refresh rate. The scrolling text are very smooth and easy to read.
2. The whole front panel is covered with GorillaGlass, This is the same glass sheet that protects the latest smart phones (such as iPhone4) and tablets. This gives the frame-less design to the screen. Also cleaning finger marks on the screen is very easy. Just use a damp micro fiber cloth and wipe again with a dry soft cloth, No need to buy costly LCD screen cleaner or wipes.
3. Has built in FreeView HD: A plus considering the additional investment to be made on a HD tuner if you buy a TV with just a FreeView tuner
4. Has built in WiFi receiver: Just configure the wireless modem and streaming works flawlessly. No need to buy a costly WiFi dongle (such a ripoff)
Bad points:
1. The default pedestal stand is bit flimsy and makes the TV to wobble whenever the TV is slightly touched
2. Some of the internet apps don't work.
3. Remote keys are flimsy and TV's response to remote operation is slow. Also searching the web using remote is bit frustrating using T9 keyboard on the remote.
4. Heavy, despite being an LED backlit TV, the whole unit weighs about 27KG. This could be due to the GorillaGlass on the front.
5. 2 HDMI ports that are not on the edge of the TV are practically unusable if you have a very stiff HDMI cable.
6. No support for many popular media file formats such as MKV, flv, etc. Plays jpeg, mp3, mp4 without any problem.
7. Audio quality is somewhat ok as most of the other LED TVs don't fare any good in this department.
8. USB port may not support all disk drives. My TV failed to open a 500GB 2.5" USB powered disk. However, playing from a thumb drive is not a problem.

Good points:
Nice clear picture, easy to follow menus.
Bad points:
Sound could be better. Best to use a separate sound system to get most out of HD films

Noopy, Trafford Sports and games fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The TV looks stunning whether on or off. Picture quality (when viewing High Definition content) is as good as you would expect.
Bad points:
Menu system is not as intuitive thought through as I would hope for and neither is the remote control. Something not mentioned unless you ask very determinedly, is that the Picture and Picture (PAP) mode, only supports one HDMI source (as only one HDMI decoder) and you cannot vary the sizes of the PAP screens (this is something my outgoing Sony WEGA CRT could do).

Amina, Abergavenny Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
The guide menu when you select a channel automatically closes so you have to go back to the guide menu if you are not happy with your choice. The old Sony guide is better because it allows you to preview the channel before you choose and exit.

It is a pity the internet options cannot be upgraded to include Skype.

Still a bit of room reflection on the screen.
