John, Altrincham Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful picture quality
Bad points:
For some reason when my Panasonic DVD/Blu-ray player (on HDMI1 input) is switched off the TV keeps trying to switch over to its (blank) input, every 5 or 10 minutes. My setup must be wrong but advice from Panasonic helpline to change back to factory settings has not fixed it. Switching on the DVD player stops the problem.

John, SALE Multi-purpose viewer

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Not a lot of really good points
Bad points:
Sound is a bit tinny, you cannot use the Viera system unless you purchase an expensive bit of kit to plug into the TV. I have to use 2 remote controls when turning the TV on, one for the Sky system and the other for the TV.

The cloud-based Internet service also supports interactive services using applicable equipment as well as an Internet-based shopping function that allows such equipment to be purchased straight from the TV.

A DLNA-compatible VIERA makes network connection super easy. It makes content easy to share by linking equipment over a home network.

Various types of content, such as recorded TV programmes, photos, motion images and music, can be enjoyed in different rooms or on a smartphone.
