5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very quick delivery and very impressed with quality of cable after having an authentic apple cable fail. Like the choice of colours available and that it has an LED on the connector to let you know when it's fully charged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality cable, 12 Jan. 2012
Used to connect Sony TV to Panasonic soundbar, works perfectly and allows two products to work seamlessly together, great product at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed, 12 Jan. 2012
Had this soundbar for a week now and got to say I'm impressed. The sound is rich and vibrant and a massive improvement on the sound from my Sony 40ex503. I was slightly disappointed at first as the ARC return on the HDMI connection didn't work so I had to swap the TV between TV speakers and audio system each time I wanted to use the sound bar and the TV remote would not adjust the volume. I then tried changing the HDMI lead to a higher quality XO cable and suddenly everythhing started working, the TV now automatically detects the sound bar when you switch it on and you can adjust the volume using the TV or Sky remotes. Sound from the Blu-ray player is excellent and you no longer have to turn the sound up about 30 times just to hear the Blu-ray.

I was a bit worried that as the TV and soundbar were from different manufacturers then I wouldn't get this seamless operation but it works perfectly, very impressed! Just make sure you use a decent HDMI cable, they're not all the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV, 2 Aug. 2010
Originally bought an ex703, but it suffered from the cones at the top of the screen so returned it (didn't buy it from amazon), was toying with the idea of a Panasonic g20 plasma instead, but in the ended decided to go with the Sony ex503. Very glad I did so, the picture quality is superb, far better than the ex703, Freeview HD is outstanding, very sharp, great colours, great blacks and very good depth to the picture. Freeview SD is not as good as standard Sky SD, which I've got to say is very good quality, again far better than it was on the ex703. Blue Ray is superb as you would expect.

I think the Sony menu system is excellent, looks far more upmarket than the Panasonic g20 menus and program guides which look quite basic. The DLNA works really well for streaming video and accessing pictures etc from your PC. TV is a doddle to setup, fully working within about 15 minutes out of the box.

The screen is a bit thicker than the ex703 or other edge LED screens on the market but the picture quality is far better. The sound isn't great but for general TV viewing it's fine. If you watch a lot of movies you may want to consider adding a speaker system to improve the sound. All in all a superb TV for the price, out-performs a lot of more expensive TVs.
