Param, London Multi-purpose viewer

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
3D TV Smart TV for a good price
Bad points:
Smart TV: Toshiba Place is not easy to use and limited compared to say Samsung TVs.
TV developed a fault, with a line across the screen. Toshiba support was not too helpful... waited 3 weeks for them to "get approval from HQ". Turned out replacement screen is not available.
Got my money back, but had to take three days off work. For Toshiba Support to pick up TV, for Toshiba Support to return unfixed TV, then for "the biggest high street retailer" to pick up TV, so I could get my money back. No offer of equivalent replacement.

Laszlo, Isleworth, Middlesex Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Super slim, amazing picture quality, great allrounder. Easy to use and ticks all the boxes a TV in 2012 should be about.
Bad points:
Sound is OK but not amazing but at this price and keeping it as slim as it is it's completely fine. Toshiba Places do not do much, most of the functions are not available yet. But it tells you that they are coming soon.
