Advantages: great picture, no glare, good styling
Disadvantages: not so smart of a tv
This is one of panasonics new range of 'smart' LED TV's . And ill start with the goos stuff. First of all the the styling. The framing is simple and subtle and does take up half my living room with the casing alone like my old panasonic. As far as just using it for it's main purpose, a TV, it works great. No glare and the picture is crystal clear. I was stunned at first by the backlit LED screen, It was like the first time i had ever seen a high definition movie. The speakers unfortunately are not going to win any awards but they do the job just fine. If you want good quality sound from your TV i recommend you invest in a surround sound system. The USB hard drive is a plus, being able to record and playback programmes is always a good thing.
now down to the nitty gritty. Firstly no one told me when i bought this TV that you need windows 7 to connect up to the internet. i don't want to have to buy a TV only to find i have to spend more money on software to make it work properly. When i got windows 7 and finally connected to the internet the thought first popped into my head, how am i going to use a TV on the internet without a keyboard? the answer, you mostly don't. Panasonic have restricted you to only a few internet sites that include BBC news, iplayer and youtube which after all the hassle i had gone through to get really annoyed me. Also every time i turned the TV off, even just put it on standby, when i turned it back on it disconnects from the previous input it was on so i have to keep pressing AV to get back to free view. Not a huge problem but annoying none the less.
At around £600 i would still call this TV value for money and as a screen simply for watching television you can't do much better without paying silly prices. I do feel as if i have been a bit ripped of with the 'smart' part of the TV though as it just doesn't deliver what it says it will. None the less a buy i don't regret.
Summary: a good TV at value for money but don't expect the features to impress
