Wow this is such a great product I felt the need to contribute.
First off, here are the things I picked out from the other reviews that got my attention and gave me some concern.
Display is too bright, well yes but no more than any other LCD display really so I doubt it will bother most people, for me it is fine and on the lowest setting it is more than fine, if this causes you issues then wow at your light sensitivity.
Too much Bass, yeah maybe, but this is not some super hi fi where it becomes an issue when you are in the next room, the sound is great as far as I am concerned.
This system (for the price I paid 54 pound) is amazing, so amazing I have just ordered another one to serve as a docking station for my son (let alone the alarm clock feature to wake the little bugger up on time)
Sony shine yet again with this product, take that with Play's pricing and you are on to a winner.
If I could give this 10 starts I would, I love it.
