Confirmed purchaser gamer, dvd fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
quite alot of inputs for various devices. Very good response rate and the image quality is excellent
Bad points:
My biggest gripe with this TV is that it does not have an optical (digital) audio input, only and output as i found out after i was told that digital sound inputs where supported. This may seem like a minor point but if you want to play an XBOX360 that uses the original cable (non HDMI) it means you do so without sound because in HDMI mode the cable requires an optical input which as i say, the TV lacks.
