  • Excellent Picture Quality…
  • Lacks a natural touch, especially when there are bright colours involved…
  • It is in one word - AMAZING! The picture quality is true to life…
    Rick1008 (Amazon) - August 2014
  • On demand services work really well, no lagging (partly due to fast broadband of course) and we were totally knocked out by the picture which gives rich, vibrant colours…
  • Response time is also reasonable with only minimal motion blur present…
    KMW (Amazon) - July 2014
  • This was simple to correct using the picture options and now colours look very natural…
    KMW (Amazon) - July 2014
  • It's unlikely you'll see any real difference in picture quality…
  • Not too much that the see the artificial ghosting around fast moving images…
