Excellent picture and sound; good number of options on recording quality and fast dub.

The handbook is dense and a little difficult to come to terms with. The recording menus are not as good as the 910 model that preceded it.

George, Weston super mare,UK Film lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The auto updating is amazing,even though i have had the set for over 5
years Sony are still udating the soft ware unlike Samsung etc who have
the means but never used and just a selling point...more info should be
given on this because sometimes the updating can mislead into thinking the set is not working.....
Bad points:
The remote has to be touch sensitive in future....
