Alan, Scotland

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent product. Straight out the box plug and play and off you go. It's fast, quite, can be positioned in either orientation and comes with a 2 metre cable.
Bad points:
Only that the power switch is on the rear but to be honest it's of no consequence as it turns on and off with the TV.
