Easy to set up

On/off remote receiver at base of tv means that placement of Panasonic sound bar (optional extra)will block use of remote control .

Beautiful picture quality

For some reason when my Panasonic DVD/Blu-ray player (on HDMI1 input) is switched off the TV keeps trying to switch over to its (blank) input, every 5 or 10 minutes. My setup must be wrong but advice from Panasonic helpline to change back to factory...

Not a lot of really good points

Sound is a bit tinny, you cannot use the Viera system unless you purchase an expensive bit of kit to plug into the TV. I have to use 2 remote controls when turning the TV on, one for the Sky system and the other for the TV.

So far seems a very nice television, and has also linked itself to my home network for playing music and other media.

My previous T.V. was also a Panasonic (27" I think) and gave me very good service for 9 years but this current one is obviously slimmer, larger and brings me into a more modern 21st century. Compared to my previous set it looks stylish and my children...

This is not a bad point but I thought I had ordered a silver stand and silver surround edge, which would fit more into my decor, however I am still pleased with the result that I have now (black). That is the reason I rated the design as an 8. Because...
