Nice picture....but....

MartyDacat, Amazon

  • Summary: We were replacing an older Sharp LCD TV (about 7 years old) with this Panasonic of the same size. The picture quallity is very good, a slight tendancy to be on the "dark side" no matter how it is adjusted....very acceptable. The only down side is the screen....it can be used as a mirror.

No Audio out...

  • Summary: I went to hook this TV up and noticed I could not get the TV to sync up with DVD player and got an Echo with my stereo on. that was a disappointment. Also I could not get the TV to play the Audio from my computer - So I put my old TV back up and the computer worked fine along with the stereo.

Limited web features

  • Summary: Nice picture, easy set up, overall a great TV but overpriced considering that some features have been quietly removed. Specifically chose this model despite higher cost because of the Viera Connect feature that claims to allow access to YouTube and other web content.

Can you hear me now?

  • Summary: The picture is fine and the sound is awful. I have had to order a speaker system because the TV's speakers make it very hard to hear dialogue, even with the sound turned way up. I have a 27" Panasonic flat screen and the sound is fine.

OK TV

Cynical Buyer, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: Nice TV. Set up in 10 minutes (stand assembly), no problems with configuration. Good picture quality with a wide viewing angle. Unable to program channels to skip, which for a channel surfer like me, is a big problem. The sound's adequate, but I'll likely supplement it with a soundbar.

You get what you pay for.......

Gary, Amazon

  • Summary: Good quality on the exterior with a good solid stand. The external surfaces have a shiney finish that reflects external light, which can be distracting. Picture quality is ok but is choppy with fast moving pictures, probably due to 60Hz.

It's a nice TV

conecrusher, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: Not a great TV, but a nice one. The colors are not as vibrant as on the Samsungs I have elsewhere in the house, and the viewing angle on the Viera is not that great. But, it does fit perfectly into a very tight spot, replacing a 35" tube TV in a built in cabinet that I don't want to modify.

Ótima troca!

  • Summary: Excelente tv assim como todos os produtos da Panasonic (tenho um video- cassete que funciona ha 23 anos), com ótima relação custo/benefício. Tinha vontade de ter uma "tv smart", troquei a antiga por esta e não me decepcionei;Cores vivas, som envolvente, melhor somente no cinema.
  • Pros: - resolução da tela e software
  • Cons: - preço do adaptador wi-fi. Vou usar conexão direta no modem.
