Tracy, sunderland Multi-purpose viewer

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Nice picture quality. Very light weight. Extremely thin. Good range of input/output.
Bad points:
The sound quality is rubbish. Not just bad, absolute rubbish. If you're not buying surround sound do not buy this television. The automatic feature that puts the tv into standby pops up all the time and there doesn't appear to be anyway to disable it. If you are connecting via HDMI you do not need to tune the television. Ignore the on screen instructions and merely alter the input to which ever HDMI has been used (button top left on the remote).

Guru, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good Picture quality, very slim, very light weight, good remote response, easy to set up and very fine TV, youtube, flicker, on TV. If you do not need good quality sound or you have your own surround-sound system, this is excellent LCD TV for you.
Bad points:
Sound Sound Sound... This tv has very thin sound, I tried to change audio settings to get better results but always just like sound coming from a very small radio. at low volume you could hear fine but if you raise volume, speakers start making rattling noise, like going to burst, you can hardly understand anything. believe me you will never enjoy watching TV with a bad terrible sound. I ended up spending another 150 Euros on sound system.
Other bad part is Internet, customer may look at it and say wow, its Internet TV but its not, even on the box you will see opera web browser image, but it has no such thing, it has only youtube, flicker, bbcPlayer. BBC player is only accessible in UK. so no use for in Ireland. thats it. so customers looking for internet on tv should buy apple TV or other IP Box.
