Really impressed

ChrisStor..., Ciao
11 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this TV in Nov 2012 as a replacement for an old Sony TV that finally gave up. Cost I paid £650 from Next. I knew it wasn't the cheapest (they are now down to £400 - £450 mark from some retailers), but I didn't have the cash to buy it out right and so used my online Next account.
  • Pros: Looks, picture quality, functionality
  • Cons: No wireless internet hook up

The Curate's egg of televisions

The Ageing Hippy "Dick", Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: We purchased this item (the 42 inch variant) from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and generally speaking we are VERY pleased with it. We purchased the Skype camera kit and 'dongle' at the same time which, subject to the physical placement of the 'dongle', works well, and the facility to be able to...

Great little performer

  • Summary: Black border screen with transparent (plastic ?)edging surrounding black border. Probably looks real nice next to late 1990's ceiling mount GU50 ceiling fittings with similar clear glass or plastic surrounds. Picture a little blurred and had to max out sharpness thingy setting for better picture.

Great TV but sound could be better.

John Aiton "mutley", Amazon

  • Summary: It's only getting 4 stars because the sound is not great, but no flatscreen can do good sound so I expected it. Built in Media features are good for basic use and connects to my XBMC PC to play my movies (only does certain file types and surprisingly MKV isn't one of them).

Fabulous

  • Summary: Really happy with television. The size is great and in comparison to our old huge tv this is lovely and sleek and not deep at all. Sometimes when close up it doesn't seem that sharp which is why I gave only 4 stars, but I have been told all 42" tvs are like this as you arent meant to stand so close...

  • Excerpt: Нормальный телик, мало жрет электричества, не греется, как монитор по HDMI работает надежно. Можно брать, вряд ли разочаруетесь.
  • Pros: Качественная картинка, стильный дизайн, небольшой вес (только подставка тяжелая, но ей и положено быть таковой), поддержка DLNA (замечательная вещь при наличии NAS), автоматически обновляет свою прошивку при наличии подключения к сети.
  • Cons: Бестолковые интернет-сервисы, 3\4 которых не работает, отсутствие браузера (должно быть он есть в более дорогой модели), поддержка только оригинальных аксессуаров (обычная USB-вебка работать с теликом не будет). Пульт изобилует бесполезными функциями и сам по себе неудобный, чтобы включить телик ...

Une merveille à prix réduit

17 October 2012
  • Summary: Etant l'heureux possesseur depuis peu de ce téléviseur, je tenais à faire l'éloge de ce téléviseur hors norme pour la qualité de son image quel que soit l'angle ou l'on se place, la richesse des couleurs présentées, ainsi que la qualité sonore bien présente pour une tv de ce type et de ce prix.
  • Pros: Qualité d'image, une bonne qualité sonore
  • Cons: 3D peu efficace, design moyen
