This is an excellent TV. It is not internet enabled, but that can be achieved by hooking up a PS3 or other internet device.
Sound is fine, and better than most LEDs. You will want to attach speakers if you really want hifi sound, but the built in speakers are as good as any on a flat TV. Picture is excellent - Do not buy it for a small room and sit close - no TV looks good when you're too close. Buy an appropriate TV for the size of room. I sit a couple of meters or so from mine and it's very good (I have other higher end Sony TVs - this stands up well to them)

This TV WORKS EXTREMELY WELL WITH A PS3. It's great for games and brilliant using the blue-ray for video. I don't… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous and faulty, 15 April 2013
I had this one week over two years. I wasn't used much - it was noisy but fine. Then it would only heat at full power, regardless of the temperature set. Then it would heat on full power whenever the door was closed. No light came on, so other than the noise, no indication that the microwave was running at 850 with noting in it. That is a fire hazard. I have seen similar reviews and experiences. See John Lewis website. On one of those the person's microwave came on during the night. In my view Bosch should look into this as a matter of urgency. It was a 3 or 4 star product that should in my opinion be withdrawn. I would give it less than 1* if possible. I now have a panasonic.
TOMY Aquafun Octopals by Tomy
5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 21 Feb 2013
Bought this for my son aabou 5 years ago - he was 18 months (ish). He loved it and still has a couple of parts now - though the base is for rockets to take off from rather than baby octopus to sit on. I have just bought another one from a friends son's first birthday. Apparently he loves it too. Good idea of one of the reviewers who suggested rinsing out the squirty baby octopus with Milton - dilute it. They do eventually develop a black mould inside and that should slow it down. Regardless of that I would definitely recommend this. Apart from the children enjoying it, it's good to be able to squirt them when they are being annoying, and they think it's fun.
