What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 85 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great picture and good looks great tv slim design,easy to use,even speakers on tv quite good compared to others. 22 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recommend this TV But for some wrinkles would give this 5* across the board. Wrinkles: when you go into viewing Guide you do not get a live TV pane in the top right of the screen so lose all contact with what you were watching until you leave Guide: the Guide does not have a page at a time jump up and down - you have to laboriously move down line at a time; when you open the Info pane for more on a programme the text is very feint white and hard to read. Otherwise star. 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal 2nd TV This TV was purchased to replace an old 22" set in my kitchen. The overall size is only a little bigger but it's a perfect fit in the corner between the worktop and the overhead cabinets. It not only looks great but the picture quality and features are 1st class as well. If you're looking for a set this size then I don't think you can do better. 16 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a very attractive TV. This is a terrific TV. Ideal for a bedroom. Set-up was extremely easy. I would recommend this TV. 12 May 2015
