ryan, london Multi-purpose viewer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
lightweigh,attractive looking, easy to set up and use.
Bad points:
picture is distorted especially on football around the players as they move, this can also be noticed on other programmes, and now we have had the t.v approx 4-5 months, and now have a line across the middle of the screen which can be seen when the screen is dark.??

For the price i am not convinced this is a justafiable brand. :(

Maurice, Margate Film and documentary lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Clear picture. Strong colours.
Bad points:
Auto contrast can make picture too dull in normal mode at night.
when looking at program guide, the program being watched shuts off until guide is cancelled.
Program guide has a quarter of the screen taken up by irritating adverts, more guide shown would be better.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Full-HD NeoPDP Plasma TV with Freeview HD built-in,600Hz Sub-field Drive Intelligent Frame Creation Pro, 2 mil:1 Contrast and VIERA Image Viewer. The S20 Series includes a DVB-T2 tuner for Freeview HD providing you with a convenient, subscription free way* of watching HD contents like sport, as well as your favourite soaps, dramas and documentaries in full HD glory wherever you are in the UK*.

600Hz Sub-field Drive technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects. *When using Cinema mode.

VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When you’re watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it’s difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.

It’s easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. An easy-to-see, easy-to-use thumbnail display has also been added. You can also enjoy special background music, slideshow frames and transition effects.

In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What’s more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.

VIERA Link allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.
