Advantages: Bargain prices now available sub £500 possible
We always fancied a Big Plasma TV but they were all still very expensive back in 2008.Christmas was looming large on the horizon with just a few months to go.Prices for this smallest size of Plasma TV 37" / 42" were all around £999 plus,alot more than our ancient now 10 year old Daewoo CRT we paid around £250 for on an impulse buy from Sainsburys.I struck it lucky,my local auction house was clearing out bankrupt stock and low and behold an LCD Panasonic TX-37LZD80 was on offer with no reserve!
This I think 37" is as big as LCD Tvs get and this was just perfect for us. It was of course an as new display model and I decided to go to £500,In fact I bought it for a shade under this including buyers premium.I got carried away and bought a 27" Sony Bravia LCD TV too!! The Panasonic has been 100% reliable the last 18months,gives best picture quality I have ever seen,just as good if not better than any plasma TV,black is true black,sharp quality high resolution pictures,3D sound and when we are ready perfect for HDTV.It has so many functions we do not use,but simple to set up using the hand set "Viera Link" it was easy even for a dummy like me without the instruction booklet! I give this a 10/10 rating,for picture quality and sound,it is Panasonic after all and reliability,again you can not beat the Japanese.
It has 2 scart connections AV1 ,AV2,3 HDMI connections,built in Freeview,SV connection,head phone point and ariel point,PC connection,digital sound connection and speaker connections if you want surround sound.Ideal for your all round home entertainment needs,gaming,music,TV and computer.
I am sure it will last for many years to come,so I have no regrets and neither will you for taking my advice.Prices have come down steadily so your target price should be sub £500 for brand new with manufacturers warranty.
Thanks for reading my review and I hope you found it interesting.If this has been useful to you and you take time to leave Your rating it will be appreciated and hope you will take a look at my other reviews sometime.I also leave reviews on the Ciao website about this and other items,many thanks!
