Sony KDL42W653 42 Inch Full HD Freeview HD Smart LED TV. 4.9 5 75 79
nice television excellent picture quality and sound only gripe I've got is some of the aps don't seem to work and the open browser will only open Sony web pages but other than that it's a very good television for the price 28 January 2015
TV is great, struggled with setup The TV is great, a good buy. Others do not seem to have had any problem with the setup, but I'm afraid that we did. In setting it up, it asks some questions around your sky/cable set up and no matter which combination we chose, it would not set up. In the end, we called a friend. We didn't try their telephone support because their hours of work are when we're not at home. 18 January 2015
Delighted with the TV! looks small because of the fine edge around screen really light. 14 January 2015
Picture quality is great Wasnt sure about getting a smart tv ...so glad I have !!! its amazing and even I can work it , not being a tech person ... Its simple to use , picture quality is fab , linked it up to cable but didnt have an hdmi at first so the quality wasnt as good ... DONT FORGET TO GET AN HDMI cable !!! I was also informed of the aftercare service 24 August 2014
Sleek looking tv very easy to use Very pleased with this tv as nice and simple to set up ,has a great picture and really nice sleek looking stand 19 July 2014

No, sorry this does not have an inbuilt webcam.

Were unable I?m sorry to give personal opinions on the products.
