  • The detachable mains lead may be far too short for certain situations - the lead came away from the brick as it was also a loose fit…
    ABc (Amazon) - December 2014
  • While part of it is super slim, part is chunky so it doesn't sit tight to the wall when hung…
  • Slim silver bezel looks very smart against white walls…
  • The remote is a little bit too small and lightweight for my liking.
    James I (Amazon) - June 2014
  • It looks pleasing and is nice and slim…
  • The sound quality isn't great since there is little bass from the slim body…
  • However the bezel is so slim it's not the end of the world…
  • It's thinness and slim brushed steel bezel makes it look extremely sleek…
    KMW (Amazon) - May 2014
  • The set is lightweight and slim and as my model is silver the set doesn't look obtrusive in the room…
    Valley88 (Amazon) - January 2015
  • It's beautifully designed, amazingly thin bezel and body…
