Good picture and sound

Advantages: Picture and sound quality; appearance; good value
An emergency purchase when our old 28" Philips television - one of the earliest widescreen CRT televisions - blew up after eight years faithful service. My wife is not interested in electronics, other than appearance and did not want an enormous new television. Given the size of our sitting room, we decided that a 37" screen would be sufficient as neither of us wanted the television to dominate the room. I decided on a plasma screen rather than LCD as I prefer the colours and refresh rates. Having read a number of reviews, the Panasonic Viera seemed to offer good quality without paying super-premium prices - and we have been very happy with our purchase. It sits smartly on the table top stand on our gloss walnut unit - the silver panel at the bottom provides a break between the dark brown of the unit and the black of the screen stopping any clash in appearance. The picture has impressed us and visitors have also commented favourably - always pleasing. The television also has a relatively good sound setup with stereo sounds being clear - no need to run sound through a separate amp and speaker system most of the time (I tend to save this for blockbuster films).
Summary: Good value quality television - would be happy to buy Panasonic again
