Summary: I was initially impressed by this TV. The picture was great and everything seemed to work without a hitch. 2 weeks ago I noticed that the guideplus menu system seemed to be slow to load data, things have gotten worse and now nothing loads. DNLA media server has also stopped working and the system menu is unresponsive. I contacted Panasonic support and they said they are unable to help. £800 seems like a lot of money for a product that lasts less than 2 years.
Summary: Bought this TV for the bedroom. Was the only manufacturer that offered this size which let me get the maximum size in the amoire with a 1/4 inch to spare on the sides. The picture is almost as good as a plasma. Wide viewing angle. DLNA works OK from my media server but needs to be hardwired for high res video and some file formats aren't supported so need a media server that can recode on the fly. Internet services such as Netflix work without a problem over wifi.
Summary: I ordered this L37DT30 to replace an L42E30 I purchased from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. I liked the 42E, but noticed some blurring with HD and sports content. It also was bigger than I needed for my home office. Despite my reluctance to pay nearly double for the 37DT, I've been thrilled with its performance. I watched a lot of football over the weekend (including a loss by my beloved Crimson Tide). Not the slightest blur or choppy picture.
Summary: Only after 4 months there are several black dots on the screen. Be aware! - as this TV is less than 42" you have to carry it to service center which is ridiculous. Panasonic's customer service is basically useless.
Summary: I've had this TV since May 2011 and still marvel at the excellent 2D and 3D viewing. The 37" size is perfect for a bedroom or den. Even my old standard DVDs look great on this TV. (I have a Sony BDP-S770 DVD player and toggle between Panasonic apps on this TV and Sony apps from the DVD player. Lots of choices between the two.) Bottomline: I'd buy this TV again in a nanosecond.

Summary: Here's an update to to my initial review below: I've now had it a week and still REALLY like it a lot.. Makes watching TV so much better.. but the main things i figured out and an very impressed with are: the DLNA and Apple AirPlay.. DLNA simply took enabling streaming the DLNA D30 net under Win Media Player .. but the GUI on the TV is what amazed me most.
Summary: My disappointment is with Panasonic, the manufacturer. My new TCL37DT30 arrived on 8/30/11. I hooked it up that evening and after a few minutes exactly half of the picture was just vertical colored lines. I unplugged and replugged and it continued. I checked with my Seller and he said since arrived in box ok and not obviously damaged in shipment, my recourse was with Panasonic direct.
Summary: I have sony brand preference but I must say that the TV is spectacular picture and sound are amazing, the 3D probe with a blu ray home theater of the same make and simply has no comparison, also brings his glasses, which other brands do not. has nothing to envy the most renowned brands.
