Worth six stars

JayZ, Amazon

  • Summary: This must be one of the best things I've bought. The image is so natural it's like looking out of the window. I only use this for films (720p and 1080p) so cant comment on TV reception. No green splotches or varying backlights that I've noticed. I also only watch after dark with low ambient lighting so haven't played with high brightness levels. The only negative I've noticed is pixelation on the edge of subtitles against a dark, fast-moving background.

A very good set

  • Summary: I had this for well over 2 years now and it still looks sharp and works well. There is likely a newer model now (this needs a USB dongle to 'speak' to an ISP connection, but I don't stream and am very pleased I bought when i did. Think it was about £550-560 back then, sure it was not more, and the option to add web connection still exists, but doubt I ever will!

  • Summary: A Great buy at the time if purchase but be careful when using Virgin TV as it lowers the quality of the viewing experience but some great features on the tv itself

Good TV but..

Gjs Grant "jimsdub", Amazon

  • Summary: A reasonable TV in every respect but still not a patch on the LG it replaced and the Viera Cast thing is the absolute! I really did think this was an internet TV but it lacks the apps to be useful. No Netflix or Lovefilm. I had to purchase a separate Samsung Blu Ray to access the internet proper. Wish I had never purchased it!

  • Summary: Just right for me. Being a plasma, it has an excellent picture, and works well with my home network for BBC iPlayer etc. I use it with my cinema sound system, so haven't used the internal sound so much, but it's pretty good for a slim casing. Could do with a better search engine for YouTube, but now I'm getting unreasonable! I like the feature that you can turn off the picture only so you can listen to sound channels, and reduce power consumed.

Great Product.

  • Summary: Resolution is great and it has a kind of mat finish to the screen which allows less reflection from surroundings. USB slot is not good for view movies cause it not recognize folders on drives.

forget it

  • Summary: Lasted less than two years then a bar appeared mid screen.HAD IT CHECKED AT TV REPAIR SHOP--SCREEN REQUIRES REPLACING WHICH COSTS MORE THAN TV WORTH. DO YOUR SELF A FAVOUR AND FORGET THIS TV! Wish i had gone to john lewis who offered a five year guarantee.

Worried for the future though.

  • Summary: Did not write an earlier review because this was an older model and quite hard to get even in Autumn 2012. Suprised to see it still available in June 2013. So for what its worth... Bought and lived with this set for almost a year now. In terms of picture quality It's everything I expect from a Panasonic plasma.

  • Summary: we had an old 32 inch wide-screen monster that was replaced by this tv. we were looking for a Panasonic but did not want to spend too much money. we have had it a year now and no complaints. we use to suffer horribly from glare on our old tv but we have now happily forgotten what that was like.
