Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still a good TV but lacks in quality. Watch out for bad solderings that makes HDMI stop working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really bad picture we thought with the spec of the tv it would blow us away, we couldn't have been more wrong. The picture quality was soo terrible, it can't keep up with moving images even in HD. Cartoons are fuzzy and so is writing, we sent the tv back and wouldn't recomend anyone buy this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item good price very happy with this TV, purchased for the office meeting room & we have it connected via HDMI which is good. Picture quality is good, although havent tried it as a tv. Menu's easy to use etc. Unusual to the the pink colour at the bottom but its ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well priced Excellent picture with Sky HD box, and easy to connect. Sky hadn't listed the remote control code for this TV in my instructions, but managed to find it online, 1293 works mine, but there are two others you can try 1176 and 0206., it saves having to use two remotes.
