Aniq, Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
SMART TV functions are better than I expected, DLNA Allshare etc worked perfectly, well designed, well put together and for a plasma has good viewability on sunny days.
Bad points:
Unless your video files on your NAS/ other storage media are exactly the right format you are going to have problems watching them - .mp4 seem to work, and videos encoded for 'ps3 viewing' should also work, however any other formats are hit and miss

Mark, Newcastle Film and documentary lover

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Pretty easy initial setup. Good picture quality. Most of the features easy to find and adjust. Links into my home PC network to play audio and other stored media. Can update available channels without losing all your settings
Bad points:
When it does software installs it reverts to 'Japanese English' and is not very informative about what is going on. Since some things take several minute this can be disconcerting. Onscreen TV guide is adequate, but not great. Organisation of recorded TV, media on other devices is poor, since it does not seem to support folders

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The 600Hz Sub-field Drive* in VIERA plasma TVs teams up with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro technology to deliver smooth, fluid, on-screen motion.

By using an intelligent algorithm within the picture processing based on motion detection, the best combination of frames is created to deliver ultra crisp sports, film and game action.

Infinite Black enables VIERA to display extremely robust blacks. A new filter and enhanced cell performance have greatly increased luminous efficiency to produce crisp blacks.

And minimising the electrical pre-discharge helps to both raise contrast and save energy.
