  • Questionable build quality / software - significant delay between pressing a remote button…
  • For the retail price it is expected to fetch, this should have a far more reliable and stable operating system in it…
  • The built in wall hanging bracket is great just no where to run the cables…
  • Have been using this product for several months and it has been a pleasure quality of build and design is superb…
