Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting TV Worked OK straight out of the box and connecting faultlessly to WiFi. Wrestling with the picture quality to achieve a natural picture took some time. Backlighting, brightness, contrast and colour saturation all seem to be set to near maximum for the factory settings. The A/V synchronization also needed considerable adjustment. When all adjusted the picture quality is good and the sound quality is acceptable. I needed a TV with a simple analogue sound output (L/R audio), at the same time as the normal TV speaker output, to connect to an assistive hearing device. This is NOT available on this TV. A digital optical output is provided but this is an Either/Or function with the TV speakers – you can’t have both at once. Had to spend more money to get around this feature. The remote control on this TV seems to need a lot of button pushing to perform simple functions e.g. bringing up subtitles, changing the input source and navigating the programme guide. The “User Manual” is only a very basic setting up guide. It would be useful if the manual mentioned the on-line guide available via the “Smart” home page. Still to discover many of the delights of the “Smart” TV function!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product and value for money We wanted a TV to mount on the wall in our kitchen and this product fitted the bill exactly with the bonus of being a smart TV as well. The only slight downside is that whilst the TV is mounted to conceal the aerial and electric sockets it is harder to hide the transformer on the wall bracket. Not a fault of the product itself it is just that we didn't realise it would not be wired directly to a mains socket with the consequence that the wire would have been much easier to hide.
