Goede beeld kwaliteit
Veel opties voor het aanpassen van het beeld
Zeer goede prijskwaliteit verhouding (Bang For The Buck)

Gelukkig geen Smart TV optie, maar dat is mijn mening
Maar 2 hdmi aansluitingen (al heb ik zelf wel genoeg aan 2)
Tylko 100 Hz
Tylko 2 x HDMI oraz 1 USB
Brak nagrywania na USB
