Not Smart enough ... No browser, big extra costs for WiFi and Skype

Summary: It connects to the Internet, the remote has got an Internet button, but there is no web browser! No, I didn't check before buying because I never imagined that an Internet TV would have no browser.
Summary: We got one of these sets. Initially seemed great but then it exhibited strange characteristics in dark scenes. As the scene gets darker, the whole picture is dimmed and its hard to see whats going on. You can see this happening in quick changing scenes.
Light leak at the top of the screen on Panasonic 32-inch E5B

Summary: Bought the 32-inch version (Panasonic E5B) and got delivery today. Good picture, easy set up but there is a light leak at the top of the screen (dotted/broken white line from the top left to the centre of the picture.) Very disappointing when you buy something new and darn it ... there it is . ..
Summary: The picture quality is OK for the price, & viewing angle pretty good. I've connected it via Ethernet to the home network, and browsing picture libraries on the Windows 8 PC upstairs works fine. Playing videos off the PC doesn't work so well, some it refuses to play at all, others have no audio.
Summary: Disappointed with the fact that this TV can only get iPlayer on BBC. Customer Service was an absolute disaster. One operator left me on hold and then cut me off. I rang back and complained to the switchboard who apologised and said someone would ring me back. Nobody did.
Summary: Picture is fine and sound from built-in speakers is quite sufficient for a small room. Viera Connect is a bit of a disappointment though. iPlayer is good, but it's good on every TV these days. NetFlix is OK, too. But YouTube is extremely clumsy with the remote.
Summary: Must admit I bought this as an upgrade from an old CRT tv so am used to poor detail but a very smooth picture. I chose this tv as apparently it suffers less from motion judder and blurring then others in the same price range.
Summary: This TV shows much promise but does not deliver especially when it comes to the sound. The picture is great and the features are very interesting but like many flat screen TVs the sound is far from good.
No WiFi adaptor included - don't buy the wrong one!

Summary: The TV itself is fine, but it is very annoying that it has no built-in WiFi. The Panasonic Adaptor (TY-WL20E) is about £50, and there are no plug-compatible alternatives. This is for something that ought to cost about £10.
