Well Worth The Money No problems yet. Very good picture and sound. Easy to use and auto programmed itself with the sky remote to work the volume so happy days :-) 22 July 2014
great tv for the price Great tv, easy to set up, some reviews I read complained about the sound but I think its fine. Smart tv is easy to use, I'm not sure if you can add extra apps such as 4od or itv player, my son loves youtube on there. 19 July 2014
Great value TV This TV is great in all respects apart from the weak sound and poor quality speakers. Dead easy to set up just connected my Tivo and a set top aerial and away it went found all of the available freeview channels in a couple of minutes.(including HD). Lots of different settings available to get the best picture for your own preference.. After I connected to my router ( by cable) I was able to get the pre loaded apps and also access to the internet. Overall a great buy which I would recommend. 16 July 2014
Top class tv for price brillant picture quality and features 16 July 2014
not impressed when working i find this tv fine for the price,but in the short time i have had it i have had to disconnect at the mains 2 times because it had frozen while streaming programs and had to restart once while on freeview because the sound had gone off 15 July 2014

Answer: 
You can put it on a wall, it has the fixing holes on the rear of the TV. You will have to purchase the wall mounting kit seperately as it doesnt come with any wall mounting brackets.

It works fine with a Virgin media box too!

Are there any sound bars that can be connected to this television? It does not appear to have the optical connection?

Is there another way of connecting?

The size of the screw for the four holes at the back of the TV (I have the wall mount but not the screws). I have read your previous answer to another wall-mount question but need more specific information than that.
