Marie, Bradfrod Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We trailed around for 3 hours looking for a suitable TV. An upgrade to our old style 32 inch. We were bombarded with many examples of sound, picture, HD ready or full HD. In the end we are not TV critics and wanted a good, large tv. This one was on sale, it was in stock and to be honest it looked great in the shop. Brought it home and it was up and running within the hour. Stand easy to put on, once you know the silver part goes into the slot at the back of the TV lol. There is only one scart socket but we have connected our DVD, Sky and Wii with no extra cables. The picture is great, the sound is great and for us mere mortals it's all good.

Manufacturer's Description

HD Plasma TV with 600Hz Sub-field Drive, 2 mil:1 Contrast and VIERA Image Viewer

600Hz technology lets you view superb motion images with 720 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 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 videos on the large screen. 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.
The C3 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 (Following a one off installation payment for Freesat services whereas for Freeview HD you will need to ensure coverage is available in your local area.).
