James, Lincoln Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Slick design with minimal border. Very easy to use with easy to follow menus. I like that you can turn the TV off (on the product itself) but still use the control to turn it back on.
Bad points:
Tends to click now and again. Only two choices to angle that screen.

Anthony, Altrincham Sports and games fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This really is a great TV. Easy to set up but you will need a bit of nous as there are a few options in the set up menu. I have found the internet streaming really good and we get about 6-8mbps. Yes the remote takes a little getting used to and you will need to set the picture up to your own settings if it's not to your liking, but everything is easy to do through the Home menu button. The sound is always a contentious point on flat screen TV’s, but if it you find that you cannot live with it, then connect it up to a HI-FI unit, a soundbar or a surround system. Easy enough to do. One thing I found is that with my Technics system I had to use a headphone to audio cable (1:2) as the actual audio out connections didn't work on the TV. I spoke to SONY Technical helpline who told me that my Hi-Fi was not compatible, however, spoke to the Sony rep in John Lewis and he advised to use the above cable. The audio out does work if you use a scart to audio, but for some reason the audio:audio doesn’t, but then I assume most people going for optical cables to other devices so a satisfactory work around for me whilst I save up for a BOSE Solo unit. Got the unit from John Lewis and great service as always, can’t recommend them highly enough. Not yet tested out the 3D fully, but give it time.
Bad points:
TV does 'creak' at times as the plastic expands and contracts to the unit temperature and the ambient temperature, but not a problem for me at all, and this really is the only 'bad' point
