Julie, Seahouses Film and documentary lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We shopped around for quite a while before deciding to buy this model, and I'm extremely happy to say we made the right decision. The picture quality is exceptional, and HD football blows your mind! I've felt as if I was on the pitch with the players! (I wasn't a football fan before!) We have this TV mounted on the wall and it looks fantastic, its just like sitting in the cinema. The sound quality is fantastic even our dog reacts to any animal sounds and she never did that with our old tv. Buy this - you wont be disappointed.
Bad points:
I cant think of anything bad to say about it, other than it attracts the dust and I have to dust it more than I would dust anything else in the lounge!!!! A small price to pay for a bit of luxury!

Aidan, Tullamore

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Excellent for free sat but not full compliant with the DVB specification for teresterial. Will decode Irish DTT radio channels but not tv after a change to the standard. It worked pefrect for MPEG4 DTT but after a technical change to the standard it no longer picks up MPEG4 TV but still MPEG4 DTT radio.
Bad points:
Pannasonic customer support and technical service . Never will purchace a Pannasonic ever again.

Good points:
picture quality is excellent,sound quality is ok but when played through surround system really is excellent
Bad points:
when watching certain programs the back ground seams to be out of focus.the worst thing is when watching football and the ball is kicked into the air it seams to blend in with the crowd and you loose sight of it.

With 50Hz video signal input, the Intelligent Frame Creation achieves high moving picture resolution even in fast-motion scenes. This function makes new frame that was calculated by speed and direction of motion. It allows natural frame-to-frame transitions to occur for smooth motion images with high resolution.

Every image is richly expressive from bright scenes, such as scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Contrast is enhanced by the new Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge control system) and a higher base luminance from improvements made during panel production process. The high contrast creates deep, robust blacks and reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.
