Summary: We got this for our bedrom to replace an old CRT with an original xbox running xbmc. We primarily only view Netflix and Hulu (through PlayOn). Netflix and the TV itself have been great. The only downside is the DLNA client. It has a really annoying feature that cant be turned off of starting the selected video as a preview, but not cancelling the stream even when you select another video in a list (not even pressing play). This causes issues with the streaming quality.

Summary: This Review is mostly about Amazon but first the TV. I bought this for my daughters birthday - she is away at college and is thrilled with the TV and its features. Everything works and the feature set is great for a college age kid - the IPTV (Netflix) and ability to connect to her iPhone as well as the ability to look at pictures directly from an SD card are the big ones.
dlna is not very good. picture quality is ok. 32" smart tv.

Summary: an important problem with this tv for anyone who is a heavy dlna user, is this tv cannot handle as many file types as samsung dlna (does handle mkv, however), and it does not playback 1080p very well using dlna. also, it does not decode 5.1, although it MIGHT pass through via optical out if you hook it up to a receiver (which is unlikely on a set this small). that was my main gripe. another annoying thing is it has permanent overscan that you cannot disable.
Summary: Television is fine overall. I prefer the picture quality of the Samsung LCDs, but the price was right. I could find no reference to the need for a wireless LAN adapter on the Amazon description page and the Panasonic page didn't even recognize the model number. Frustrating that I now have to track down and buy the wireless adapter. Even more frustrating that I had to sit on hold with Panasonic support for 20 minutes to verify my suspicions.
