Set up and running very quickly with autotune. Adjustments for fine tuning of contrast/colour etc to personal taste easy to achieve

Would have preferred an on/off switch on the tv itself rather than having to pull the plug out if you are having to use a multi extension lead and don't want to turn off other equipment, sky box etc. TV's shouldn't be kept on standby for long periods....

Very easy to set up, value for money best TV out there and I certainly don't mean that quality suffers because of the lower price ; Works as "smart TV" as well although it's not mentioned in product description

Everything great Love this TV

Not really any bad points at all so far, could do with one more USB slot. That is my only small gripe

The 3D function is actually really good, especially when watching movies, its fantastic

However, the TV for some reason makes a very little nosie, when it is tirned on. But you cannot really hear it, because of the programes being watched
