David, Wallasey, Merseyside Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality, thin design and thin frame. Lots of ports to connect other appliances to at rear and side. Remote easy to use and freeview picked up over 90 channels even with a sub standard aerial.
Fantastic all-rounder!
Bad points:
Only one. Power button is on the side/rear which is a bit awkward but this is so minor, I wouldn't let this put you off.
