1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing in the extreme, 22 May 2014
I read all the buyer and pro reviews before deciding to go ahead with buying this item. I got carried away by the hype and the rave reviews. I wish I had not bothered. I bought a pair of Philips Fidelio X1 headphones to go with it. They are excellent. On unpacking, I loved the industrial looks and the weight but that was the end of it. I have my own MP3/320 files and CD quality flac. I also bought a few hi rest music downloads to put the player though its paces. The sound was terrible.

My usual music setup is the Fidelio X1's a Windows tablet and a FIIO E06 headphone amp… Read more

Incidentally, wearing… Read more

I bought this TV because it had a good spec for the price and for the Sony brand. Its a very nice looking TV and the picture is good though not brilliant but fine for tbe price. One of the features that was important to me was the Motionflow XR 200hz. However I found no reference to thus feature in the menus. I had a look through the forums and many people were complaining of the lack of this feature on the W65 series and there were replies from Sony saying this series never dud have this feature. Despite this, it is still showing on their own website. On to the smart features. These have proved to be a bit hit and miss despite my having a fibre optic broadband and the TV connected to the… Read more
