NIck, Harpenden Careful shopper

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use.
Good picture quality.
Bad points:
The earphone jack automatically cuts off the sound to the speakers wheareas my previous TV allowed the option of only hearing through the headphones or hearing through the headphones and the speakers simultaneously. This is compounded by having the earphone jack at the back of the TV instead of at the front or on one side.
Glossy black finish looks cheap.

Simon, Wolverhampton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value product, easy to set up and use. It pretty much tunes itself from the first switch on and is ready to go after about two minutes.
Bad points:
Minor critisism only. The on/off button is at the top of the set. this is ok on a stand, but it is inaccessible if the product is wall mounted (as mine is).

Manufacturer's Description

This compact addition to the HD Ready REGZA AV range delivers a great performance and its size makes it perfect for bedroom or kitchen. The HD Ready panel with active backlight control ensures you can enjoy all that high definition broadcasts have to offer, with rich vibrant colours and increased detail.

High-Definition Multimedia Interface is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting uncompressed streams. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source and video monitor.
