I have to disagree with a couple of comments in that review. First, I don't see hardly any color change when moving off axis. Mine is mounted in the bedroom, with the door on the side wall very close to the TV. I can step quite a ways into the hallway and the colors don't hardly change much at all. I do see contrast drop off, but nothing significant. Since I'd never be viewing it from this far off axis (well beyond 45 degrees), it's no factor. I'm looking at it right now at about 70 degrees off, and the HD TV channel looks perfectly viewable. It's an animated show (Dinosaur Train), but that shouldn't change its performance.
The other is the comment about the One Connect causing more clutter. Not really. If you currently have a bunch of HDMI cables going to the back of the set, then the clutter only moves to where the box is put. It doesn't change the clutter, but it does move it to a location that's probably easier to hide. For me, since I only run a single HDMI cable from the AV receiver to the TV, there's no change in clutter, as I still have the same number of cables going to the TV. If the One Connect Mini had every connection, rather than only some, then I could have cut my cable count drastically. Since the coax, USB 3.0 jack and Ethernet jack are still on the TV back, I still have the same number of cables. Still, it didn't change the amount of cable clutter. I just replaced the HDMI cable that went up the wall with the One Connect cable (which is a smaller cable, so there's that!).
