Couleurs fidles en mode Expert
Delta E moyen de 3 3
Bon taux de contraste
WiFi intgr
Un design qui sort de l'ordinaire
Angles de vision trop troits
Peu de formats vido compatibles avec le lecteur multimdia
Pas de compensation de mouvements
Qualit sonore dcevante
La actualizacin de imagen es de slo 120Hz, lo que hace que las pelculas de accin, juegos de video o contenidos deportivos puedan llegar a verse con algunas sombras
