Ashley, West Sussex

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Extremely impressive picture quality, as you'd expect of this brand and its reputation. Viewing from off-centre, like all such LCD TVs, loses some image quality but otherwise pin-sharp with crisp, clear colours. Excellent selection of connection sockets at rear and very smart design in matt black. Simple, sensible remote control. TV was also up and running very quickly. I would definitely recommend this TV.

Ray, Sutton,Surrey Very critical regarding TV's

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great picture but needs about a minute to give full brilliance. Seperate treble and bass controls.
Bad points:
Remote contoller needs to be same colour as the TV ie Black. Controller is Grey.
This TV is otherwise excelllent. BUT the full retail price was nearly £500 so it should be good.!!
