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....

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.
