How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

CNET UK says:

It lacks Full HD resolution and only has two HDMI inputs. Nevertheless, for such a cut-price model its colour and contrast performance is strong and it's surprisingly capable for 3D viewing.
