Susan, Penzance Multi-purpose viewer

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Its a modern flat screen tv.
Bad points:
It doesn't easily get catch up tv of any sort, especially through good wifi to itv player etc. The picture has a huge black line at the top and bottom and variably a large white mark too. Its just not very user friendly. I certainly wouldn't buy again. Next time I'd go for a Samsung not Panasonic. My other Samsung set is brilliant.

Freeview HD and freetime
The 42AS520 also features Freeview HD with Freetime – perfect for making the most of the TV’s impressive lifelike 1080p image capabilities.
