Excellent picture Pleased with the TV so far. The picture is excellent and the sound is an improvement from my last Sony TV. The slimmed down bezel looks really nice and the stand works well.Some extra features – Netflix button, football button, radio button, full HD, apps etc.Positives: Picture quality, design, price, easy set-up (in theory!), functionality, loads of inputs/outputs.Negatives: Had trouble tuning channels – Sony weren’t much help but John Lewis were – looks like it needed to be tuned in prior to setting up wi-fi for some reason, so worth trying that if you have a similar issue. Lag on start-up before functions work, as mentioned in other reviews – if this is the price to pay for having streaming apps then i’d rather just have a great TV and buy a separate streaming box. Apps can be a bit clunky. Limited choice of good quality apps. No favourites button – it seems like you can edit your favourites (all 4 of them!) but not actually access them, i’m prob…

Excellent, Excellent picture! After many long years my Panasonic 28″ CRT finally went wonky.Originally I was going to purchase a Panasonic TXL32E6B, but then I saw the new Sony and Panasonic side by side. No contest!HD Picture simply stunning. SD excellent.. Mine is piped through a Virgin V+ box.Sound: OK. Well I was spoiled with a CRT, so didn’t expect too much. Acceptable, but will probably get a soundbase/bar sometime.Apps: There are lots of Apps, most of them seem a bit worthless. We have used Netflix. Only has iplayer and 5OD as “watch again” apps, but this doesn’t bother me as I have Watch again on the Virgin box. Amazon Prima/Instant Video doesn’t work, yet.Integration: I have mine hard wired as it’s next to the router. Excellent streaming of videos/music etc from PC. Have used Nexus 7 (2013 version) for Miracast, so I can keep an eye on what’s happening on the kids Minecraft!Tweaks: You can fiddle all the settings ’til the cows come…
