Summary: I don't use the speakers on this TV. In fact, because the only audio out is optical fiber, I have to connect my rca cables to the DVR. And if I want to watch DVD/blu-ray, I have to switch the cables. This is a very bad design for a low end TV; to require high-end audio connection. And if I were to use the TV's speakers, I would probably have shot out the TV by now. They are that bad. Tinny and grating, I got better sound from a transistor radio from the 1960's.
Summary: Bought this tv elsewhere, but after a year and a few months, it went out on me. The power button cuts on, but there is no picture, its completely black. And when i try to turn it off, it wont cut off, the red power button stays on, unless i unplug. ---- Im not the only person who has had this exact problem with the Panasonic Viera tv. Panasonic really needs to check this out, & make better tvs.
Summary: i just bought this 32 inch set and very disappointed with the picture. amazingly, the white westinghouse set that i purchased at a black friday sale five years ago has redder reds and overall a much better picture and sound. i have a 56 inch panasonic plasma which is the best tv set ever, but this led does not come close in its picture and sound quality.
