4 stars for the picture and overall quality of the TV. 1 star lost for the sound. Don't get me wrong, the sound is great, but smaller speakers mean less bass. if you want a deep base sound get a subwoofer and use the socket on the back for it (well planned Toshiba)

So picture quality. Brilliant. I bought a Toshiba upscaler DVD player, with HDMI connection (there are 3 on the back of this) Fantastic. Played a movie and no blur!

Got a Wii connected up, again sockets in the back for it, playing online James Bond, lots of movement in the game and no motion blur. I dont know how an Xbox or PS3 would compare having much higher resolution graphics with only a 50Hz refresh rate.

Setup was easy, onscreen menu, job done. It has built in freeview which it prompts you to install, but I have Sky.

There are preset picture choices for cinema, gaming etc, and the same with sound. If you are not sure leave it on the standard dynamic default setting.

Delivery was in 2 days on supersaver, which is awesome, but that is no guarantee you will get that (there is an amazon depot near here)

Overall
value for money 5 stars
appearance and functionality 5 stars
sound quality 4 stars (but only cause i dont have a subwoofer, yet)

Saw the same model in a well known store for £180 more than i paid, well done amazon.

As others have said, this is a great tv for the price. I am just writing this to let people know about the sky remote code for this tv is 0527. I had great difficulty getting this code, so i hope this helps out those who are stuck.

When the sound on our BV700 went all crackly Amazon agreed to replace it with the new BV701 as the BV700 was no longer in stock, so this review compares the two.

Externally they appear to be identical except that there are now 2 USB ports and the audio phono out sockets have disappeared from the back. There has however been a major re-write of the GUI. This is now much simpler and more intuitive to use, which is a welcome change as the BV700 was very confusing at times. As with the BV700 the sound quality is pretty mediocre, but now attaching an external set of speakers is quite straight forward. Simply plugging the jack into the head phone sockets turns off the TV speakers and the volume setting automatically changes to the headphone settings. This is a major improvement over the BV700 which handled this very badly. (You had to navigate through several menus to find the separate volume menu). The loud relay clicking you got when you change video source (HDMI to SCART etc.) has also disappeared. So some big improvements so far....

The picture quality is however more questionable. I was very happy with the picture of the BV700 and expected this to be identical. However Toshiba have played around with the settings and I wouldn't say it was for the better. The picture is very bright, but possibly too bright as the image seems a little white washed at times. Also the contrast is set near maximum so there is little scope to increase it if you want. By reducing the brightness considerably I can nonetheless get a picture to my liking, just about.

The Freeview performance I cannot comment on as we are still in a not-spot. We use the excellent Humax freesat HD recorder which gives good performance in HD at 1080i.

TV arrived well packaged, i have wall mounted it and the base was a doddle to remove and no visible 'hole' where the base was. The materials are good quality and it is solidly built - even the remote has a aluminium trim and looks good Installation/set-up was easy and well though through menu driven from the remote. didn't need the handbook it did it itself.
Sound - for an LCD TV very good, way better than the Samsung it replaced.
Picture - excellent again better than the unit it replaced.
TV has 4 HDMI slots which is handy, i currently need 3 and have room for expansion.

I would definitely recommend this TV and it is excellent value for money.

Had this a few weeks now, ordered from Amazon and was able to track it all the way. Picture quality on Freeview isnt bad but I think thats freeview to be honest, DVD quality is good and Bluray is great! Sound....I've yet to hear sound from any LCD tv sound good for me it just dosent sound right so I plugged my own speakers into the headphone socket. The description on Amazons page says 2xHDMI, this is wrong it is actually 4xHDMI, the USBs enable you to attach an external hard drive where you can view images and listen to music, you can also play AVI files, although this can be a little hit and miss. Menu and EPG are a little stark and you cant re-label the sources so HDMI 1 cant be renamed Bluray! Remote seems sturdy enough with reasonably sized keys although the PIP key apparently has no function at all. You are also able to set the timer on the EPG to change the channel.
