Great size for my 13" laptop. The accessories pouch is the perfect size for the charging cable and my bluetooth travel mouse.

Good fun to play. The only down side is that it takes a while to set up and put away.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really bad, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This TV is not very good...

----OVERVIEW----
Pros:
-Good, bright, crisp 2D picture.
-Nice design with thin black border.
-Can play videos from HDD.
-Freeview HD.
-Quite good sound

Cons:
-Complicated menu system.
-HDD recording and timeshift barely works.
-Dark scenes are a blur.
-The 3D functionality simply does not work.
-Some video can be choppy.

----THE DETAIL----
Do not buy this TV.
Sure you can play video from a USB drive, sure the TV looks nice and okay the 2D image quality can be good. The image is only good when everything is still and it's a bright scene. Dark scenes are blurry due to poor image processing in this TV, coupled with choppy action scenes, nothing is really worth watching on this screen.

If you're not tech savvy, just stop. Go no further. I'm rather good with this kind of tech, but I was sometimes lost in these menus. Sometimes you need to press "OK", sometimes you need to press fast forward to proceed and sometimes you need to press down!

The HDD recording is interesting. Sometimes it would record and sometimes it wouldn't. I'm not sure you can use the TV at all when it's recording something, or you can't watch TV at least. You can't record one channel and watch another either. If you want to record two things one after another... you can't. Because it records slightly over the finish time of the first show, the next one can't start recording. Also sometimes it would decide that there was no suitable media to record on to when there clearly was...

The time shift feature was quite unresponsive. You need to initialise it before using it, so you can't just pause whenever. You need to tell it that you will be pausing at some point and then it will let you... sometimes. That goes for the rewind feature too. You need to let it know in advance to start recording so you can rewind which kind of makes it pointless. I think fast forwarding can only be done in 2 minute steps, but I didn't look in to it too much.

Don't buy this TV if you want to watch 3D films or play 3D games. I just doesn't work. It detects the 3D input, blurs the screen, turns the glasses on and even with the glasses on, it's blurry. It's not even "ohh there's a bit of ghosting" it's more "OWW! MY EYES THEY'RE BLEEDING!". Okay, that may be an exaggeration (maybe), but it's all fuzzy except the bits that aren't. And the bits that aren't fuzzy look 2D... so what's the point. It's just horrible. I have two pairs of the £35 glasses too. The glasses are actually really comfortable and fit nicely over my normal glasses, but it's a shame the TV is bad. From what I can see, the glasses are in sync with the TV, just maybe a millisecond or two too late or early, or maybe they don't change quick enough? I'm not sure.

I bought this TV mainly to watch 3D films and play 3D game on my PS3 so this was the last straw for me. I have quite a bit of experience with 3D tech and I personally believe it really adds to the experience. I've had a 3DS which was amazing if you kept your head still. I was surprised at the level of quality from the 3DS. I have an Nvidia 3D monitor with active shutter glasses for my PC and it too is amazing. I've tried 3D displays at various expos and Nvidia have by far the best active shutter tech arround. My parents have an LG passive 3D TV and that is amazingly good in terms of 3D quality. This Sharp TV is just painful.

Hopefully I've saved you the time and money with this review as I could not find any reviews anywhere when I was buying.

I have sent this TV back and paid the difference to get an LG instead.

If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the origional, 10 Aug. 2013

I remember playing the original game on the N64. It was good then and Nintendo have made it better!
The graphics are amazing and the 3D effect really adds to the game. There are also some small extra features that have been added in.

This game also includes the master quest version, so you can replay the game in a slightly different way.

This game is amazing!
There should be a sequel to this! Disney may not want to make another, but some other company should buy the rights and push out a successor (so long as it's not EA).

The only bad points:
It's better on console. The PC version isn't an amazing port, it's not bad just not great.
The ending was awful. It would have been much better just to leave it as it was and leave it as the TV series coming to an end or something.
It's not on Steam. All PC games should be on Steam.

If you like arcade racing games, you need to play this!

I would 100% recommend this case. Lots of space, looks good, cables can be hidden around the back and the fans are quiet.
