Confirmed purchaser Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture; the only issue is that when objects move fast sometimes there is a strange effect of pixels (not sure if these are called artifacts...). Very good in HD, sometimes you almost feel there's an element of 3D in it!
Bad points:
Sound is of course not great, but perfectly usable.

the picture in HD freesat / freeview is amazing absolutely the best picture ever. Even the programs not in HD have a fantastic image quality
Bad points:
selecting the favourites channels via the remote control (not a problem if you have sky or Virgin) is a bit long winded.

Picture quality on fast moving images not has good as I had expected even in HD but more noticeable on non HD content.

Manufacturer's Description

Full-HD IPS LED LCD with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro, 2mil:1 Contrast and VIERA CAST

The IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle and excellent light transmittance, is now further enhanced with a bright, energy-saving LED backlight. Images do not fade when viewed from an angle, and contrast is higher than in previous IPS models in spite of using less power. The IPS LED LCD TV offers superb colour rendering and also contributes to the display’s slim design.

Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 50Hz video signal input, Intelligent Frame Creation Pro makes 100 frames/second from 50 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. VIERA also uses motion focus technology to greatly enhance resolution.

Both high contrast and energy-saving efficiency have been achieved in the IPS LED LCD TV by combining the IPS panel, which is known for its wide viewing angle, with a bright, energy-efficient LED backlight. Even dark scenes like night skies are naturally rendered with delicate shades of black. The Intelligent Scene Controller further boosts the image quality.

The wide 178°* viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight’s wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response. *Measured at an angle where the contrast ratio is 10:1 or higher.

Enjoy Internet content right on your TV. With VIERA CAST you can enjoy online videos, photos, and more. You can also check sports, news, weather and stock information with an easy-to-use Web interface that’s built into the TV. What’s more, VIERA CAST’s assorted online content has new additions, including the remarkably popular Skypeâ„¢ and Twitter® applications. VIERA CAST not only offers unique web entertainment but also expands your forms of communication.
