Confirmed purchaser Film and documentary lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Set up was easy, and viewing is a pleasure. HD is excellent, and the picture quality is fantastic. Sound is good for a TV, but nothing special either.
Bad points:
When viewing the Freeview TV guide, incredibly annoying adverts are displayed that are very off-putting. Have not found any way of switching these off. Many times bigger than the television display. I would rather pay extra for the television than having these annoying adverts!

Again with the freeview guide, it takes AGES to download the programme data. You can leave this on automatic so it downloads overnight, but I think that Sony have missed the irony of having so many "green" features to save energy such as slower start-up, yet they display a permanent message telling you to leave your TV on standby every night to download data!!!!!!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
General Quality of picture and screen size, particularly when using Blu Ray
Bad points:
So many options to tweak ..and not overly keen on the clear panel below the screen which shows all the cables behind the tv (even after tying them up).
Poor when showing football ..
