At the moment I'm in the process of moving out of home and setting up a house with my lovely fiancé. This means buying lots of expensive household essentials and basically getting lots of exciting new stuff. One thing that we would be needing was a TV. However, we actually got lucky as an uncle of mine had decided that the TV he had just bought was to small so he gave it to us. It was only two weeks old and in perfect condition. This TV as is a Panasonic Viera with a 32 inch screen. So here is my review of it.
Back when I was living at my parents we always had a Panasonic TV and let's be honest, it's a name we all know. So the fact that we were getting a TV made by this company was certainly a good start. The TV has a pretty slick look about it, all black with a nicely shaped base. The TV is quite thin, I have seen thinner but it certainly is not bulky in any way. It's also quite light, when moving it around it was not to heavy and difficult to move. The 32 inch screen is not as big as a lot of the TV's you see these days but it certainly is big enough for our needs as we have moved into a snug little cottage, so it's not like it living in a huge room where you are going to be sat miles away.
The setup of the TV is fairly straight forward, everything is colour coded so you know what wires plug into where. When you turn the TV on the controls are easy to work out, the remote is all nicely laid out and the button that you use often are big and chunky and the ones you don't use so often are smaller and less prominent. The options on the Panasonic are again simple to understand and you can adjust setting such as brightness and other things with ease.
The picture quality is obviously important. Again I have watched other Panasonic TV and they have been better than this one, however, the quality is certainly not bad at all. When you get up close you can see it's not the best picture ever, but for us it's more than fine and we have been more than happy with it so far.
Due to the fact that we were given this TV we didn't actually have to pay for it, so price was not an issue. I've had a look round online though and the general price seems to be around the £300 mark, so not to expensive for what overall seems like a fairly good quality TV. As this is still quite new I can't really say how reliable it is, so far so good though I suppose.
So overall this is a good quality TV. There are obviously better ones out there but you would have to pay a fair bit more if you wanted these. The Panasonic Viera has a nice look about it, a decent picture and the sound quality is just fine as well. This is a TV that will be sat in the corner of our living room for a good few years.
