  • “Really nice TV, has all the features I was looking for. It ticked all my boxes and more. Excellent TV, well worth the money.”
  • “Have owned for around six weeks. Visually an excellent TV for the money – easily competes with TVs costing many hundreds more. Picture is crisp, minimal blurring. Hard to fault. Average sound but no better/worse than any other thin TV.”
  • “Setup was simple. The menu is unfussy but offers plenty of scope for tinkering. Menu is fast and responsive. The image through TiVo on HD is excellent, the SD images are acceptable and certainly now unwatchable. Viewing UHD on Netflix is superb.”
