Excerpt: I just recently bought this TV on sale, and although it was larger and a bit more expensive than I was looking to buy, I am incredibly happy with the value. I chose Panasonic for my first flat screen TV purchase because when talking to the sales associates at the stores we visited, I was told the Panasonic screens are the best for taking away glare or fuzziness when viewing the TV from an extreme side angle.
Summary: Gorgeous picture and sound. I was unsure after reading some reviews, but having bought this would ecommend it. Regarding problems i have read of i would say most if not nearly all are to do with setting the TV up correctly. White broken line at the top, and LED see through at the bottom, turn Overscan ON, not off. As a PC monitor, again superb, but know switch overscan OFF for a proper 1920 x 1080 fit, no blur or buzzing, no noise, again superb.
Excellent Television, packed full of features. Fantastic picture at a great price.

Summary: This has a truly superb picture, as a previous poster has mentioned "Frozen Planet" on the iPlayer looks absolutely awesome. I did originally order a Sony KDL40EX523BU but realised before I opened the box that I'd made the wrong choice. I sent it back and ordered the TX-L42E30B instead, based entirely I might add on the feedback on the Amazon website.
Summary: I really like Panasonic. I have upgraded my 32inch TV to this one. I also have a Panasonic PVR, Home Cinema Surround, Compact Camera and DSLR Camera. Therefore I'm not one to criticise unnecessarily, and in almost all ways I'm very happy with the new TV. The picture is great, even crisper than the old one despite the bigger size, in SD and HD. Some peoples' complaints about the backlighting on these reviews are way over the top, it looks nearly perfectly uniform to me.
Summary: Fast next day delivery from Amazon. Plugged TV into mains socket and it immediately updated to the latest software upgrade. It also updates the new channels when they become available. The quality of the pictures are superb (the HD ones between ch 50-59). It has more than enough input/output sockets as well as a card slot for pay tv. It will automatically switch over to whatever input devise you turn on. It will also play NTSC discs through your DVD player.
Summary: After doing a lot of research, including reviews here and in Which, we decided this model offered an outstanding combination of features and value for money. We did hesitate, but only because Which, although it gave the set a Best Buy rating, also said that the quality of standard definition pictures could be disappointing.
Summary: this tv is amazing! VERY easy to set up, picture is perfect when playing HD blu-ray or playing games on playstation and very good in standard def. Good sound too. Plugs into my router with an ethernet cable which isn't mentioned till you buy it so wait till you get it before you buy an expensive dongle. Very happy goggle eyes!! Its not 100Hz, its only 60Hz. Amazon should sort this as I thought I was buy a 100Hz TV.
Summary: I'm totaly pleased with my new telly, it arrived promptly an I was able to track it's progress on line. I received an e-mail telling me within an hour of its arrival so I new exactly when to wait in. Everything went like clockwork.
Summary: I purchased this TV after extensive reserach it was either the LED or Plasma and decided after the reviews that it was the LED for me, and I'm glad i went for it. It really is an excellent TV with excellent picutre quality, I'm not sure what more you need from a TV!
Summary: The colours are so vibrant and smooth. Very easy to set up. Technology has really progressed, our old tv was a LCD 32 inch from 2005 which cost considerably more, though a good telly for its time this is awesome, especially HD.
