Panasonic TX-24DS500B review

  (Rating Hidden)

Unlike the 40 and 49-inch DS500Bs, the squat 32-inch and 24-inch models are only HD ready, so the picture, in theory at least, shouldn't be as sharp as those Full HD sets. It's not bad to use, however, and could still be a worthy buy. Read on for our...

Great tv for a bedroom or den


Bought this tv because it was the best at the price, good pic quality and easy to set up. Downside is, it does take a few seconds to compile the tv listing and programming. Overall though great for the price for a second tv.

Good TV for the price


Very pleased with the picture and build quality of this TV. Sound it quite tinny but ok for a bedroom TV. Customisable home screen is good, apps work well enough but the set is a bit laggy when opening certain apps and the TV guide. Overall a decent TV...

This product is excellent for the price I paid


I purchased this for my bedroom - fits nicely on a TV bracket. The picture and sound quality is great for what I need. Easy to set up and the remote is simple to use too.

Great value product.


This TV has almost too many features. Easy to install and set up. Great picture and sound. One thing to be aware of is that the power socket is very close to the mounting point for a wall bracket so make sure you get a compatible one.

Panasonic Viera TX-24DS500B


Much of the set up and use is self-evident, but easy to obtain information from the instructions where in doubt. Pleasing picture and sound quality.

I would have liked 2 HDMI sockets to link both my HDD and DVD drive directly into the TV. As it is only one of the two can be used for this and a little HDMI switch with handset needs to be bought to switch between the two.

High quality pic from a small screen


We were looking for a smaller smart TV to fit into a particular space, and tbh this was the only 27-inch screen that Richer Sounds had in the shop. We've bought Samsungs in the past so a switch to Panasonic means we've lost some of the familiarity e.g....

very sharp picture

apps a bit complicated to use
