OK, so the name’s a mouthful, there’s no chance of you ever remembering it, and even if you like the sound of it after this review, by the time you get to the shop you’ll probably have forgotten what it’s called and come home with some clapped out old analogue set that you have no use for. But, it’s a brilliant TV, so just write the name down so you don’t forget it.

When it’s lined up against all the other TVs in a store, this one stands out by far. Its slick black design is great, but it’s nothing special, the picture quality is what sets it apart, and if you get a chance to listen to it, you’ll notice that the sound is also far superior. I know a lot of people use separate speakers now, but if you don’t this is an important consideration.

Set up time is amazing, so much so that the TV is pretty much plug and play, and provided you know what a plug looks like, you’ll be watching it within ten minutes of it coming out the box.

If you do want to change the settings, unlike many sets, the onscreen menus are easy to use. In fact, one alteration you may want to make for the sake of your eyes is to put the TV on standard mode rather than vivid, despite it looking great.

On a downside, once you press the power switch, it takes about ten seconds to load a picture, and flicking through channels has to be done one by one, but this isn’t a problem if you use a separate box like Sky+. Overall however, this is a great TV that will suit everyone and not break the bank.
