Summary: I purchased this TV purely to run images (powerpoint) in my workplace. The images are constantly running and the TV is situated in our main Reception area. The TV is very slim. It does come with a paper manual but also has the advantage of having the complete manual built in to the TV, so any problems in setting up, troubleshooting etc can be found.
Summary: We needed a new television and the 26" fitted perfectly into a space in our croft house. We had previously owned a Sony Bravia, which was excellent, but still checked all the reviews, which universally recommended the new 26". I have to say we are delighted with the look of the set, and also with the excellent picture. However, the sound quality is just terrible. I am not a snob about sound.
Great visuals - plenty of inputs - but audio could be better.

Summary: This is a great size TV for a small room. Hardly ever watch live TV as it's all so poor! I use it with DVD player and a media player. Very useful screen resizing feature. Good for watching old movies and 60s TV programmes off the media player where the original screen format is limited. Good colour and definition - only problem is the audio. TV speakers are rather "tinny" even when the bass/treble is adjusted. Fine when played through an audio system.
Summary: Great T.V. For a great price of £333. Only let down by it's poor sound. Sounds a bit like the T.V. Is in a tin box. Sounds a bit better after fiddling with sound adjustments. All of the smart features work well especially the ability to plug in an old external hard drive I had, to have a very simple effective PVR setup which can be controlled by the remote control. I did try a flash memory stick but this was not recognized. 26" is a perfect size for our bedroom.
Good picture quality and web portal, be it a little slow. Somewhat pricey

Summary: Decent picture quality and web portal with average sound as is expected for a small TV. Web portal could be a little faster, however there is a good choice of content. There aren't many TV options at less than 34". The Sony is the pick of the bunch, be it very expensive for what you get. I wouldn't exactly call it "slimline" as it is at least 1.5" thick. Good connectivity, however one wonders why manufacturers persist with having a SCART socket. Who would use that?
Summary: I've had this tv (26') now for about 2 weeks and I'm getting used to the sound! After reading the reviews I knew that the speakers wouldn't be great. But what's really surprised me was that the tv has got just one scart port (I didn't read the specification properly), meaning that I have to keep plugging and unplugging the digibox and dvd player scart leads (I'm probably old school as I have two separate devices). So I'm now looking to get a scart lead adapter.
Summary: This TV has many good features and, in the main, is easy to set up and operate (although it takes time to learn all the features - I haven't yet). The display is excellent and the colour is very much improved compared with earlier Bravia attempts which I assume is due to the move to LED backlighting. BUT the sound from the TV speakers is trully appalling - so harsh and tinny that I am at a loss as to how the designers could possibly allow the thing to go into production.
