The sound is fantastic

The guide appears to be internet driven and lags seems slow rather than just the normal guide you get on freeview they have added pictures in and it just seems very slow to bring the guide up

Sony KDL-42W654A

 

narrow frame enhances the picture without being intrusive, clear sound and looks good in the room

I could have done with a more comprehensive instruction book on how to use the 'smart' side as I am not very well up with modern technology,also difficult to fit a tilt & swivel bracket onto rear as not totally flat
