Stunning sound for a TV
Gorgeously colourful and detailed pictures, extraordinarily good sound quality, good futureproofing, lots of smart apps on board
Une superbe qualit d'image Ultra HD
Light inconsistencies at the left and right edges
Clumsy onoff backlight during very dark scenes, Android system can be overbearing and sluggish
Its design is huge, Android TV isn't customisable enough and can cause the TV to be sluggish, a number of backlight lighting flaws
Quelques lgres traces de DSE, Android TV et ses bugs
Temps de latence lors de la saisie d'une commande, quelques plantages, lenteur de la mise sous tension
