Summary: This is a great TV, very easy to set up, 3D is fine (don't really use it). The Internet connection was also really easy; it picked up the Wifi straight away and no problems at all with the speed. Watch iPlayer HD and youtube as if it were just another TV channel. The user interface leaves a bit to be desired- it is quite fiddly to enter text into the search window in Youtube for instance. Overall though, very pleased indeed with it.
Summary: After my son returned from university with his aged 40" LCD Samsung television, and kicked out our antique 28" CRT Panasonic, I decided it was time to upgrade. Choice was between the Sony 40" 753 model or the 42" ET5B - the Panasonic won because of the excellence of the 12 year old 28" CRT. Picture quality ? Excellent on the freeview HD channels, very good on the SD ones. Sound ?
Summary: I agree with other reviewers' generally positive judgments, but have a couple of gripes. The basic Internet functions work fine (iPlayer, YouTube,...) but navigating the cursor using arrow keys is a pain - particularly when entering text with on-screen keyboards that don't wrap as you get to the end of a line of keys!. The TV has USB ports but doesn't support (I asked Panasonic) an external pointing device (e.g. mouse) - a remote bluetooth mouse would be fantastic.
Summary: Extremely pleased with both HD and standard picture quality. Self set-up guide is a doddle and built-in WiFi makes getting online very simple. The built-in freeview & electronic programme guide is really good, though I have SKY+ so rarely use it. Having just upgraded from a Cathode Ray TV set with 4 scart sockets, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to connect my existing analog Wii, & DVD player, camcorder, etc.
Summary: Omdat we al een HomeCinemaa geluidsinstallatie hadden van Panasonic met VIERA connectiesysteem hebben we nu ook een TV gekocht van Panasonic. Heerlijke tv met superbeeld kwaliteit. Ik wilde meer met pc en streaming media gaan doen en daarvoor was onze oude LCD tv niet geschikt. Dit is een echte moderne tv met smartapps enz. Wij genieten nu intens van natuurfilms(De Nieuwe Wildernis) en speelfims maar ook Netflix.
