    This Panasonic model is more expensive than some other brands, but, in my mind, it is better. The viewing angle is better. It has an ambiant light level sensor. It has manual controls on the side (if needed) (whereas other cheaper models work only with a remote). It has more input capacities in the back if you want to plug in other devices like a VCR, a DVD/Bluray player, a game console: HDMI (3X), RCA video and audio (1X), component video (1X), SD Card, USB, PC Input, and Digital Audio Output. All manufacturers seem to have gone back to 720p HD instead of 1080p to save on cost (they have kept 1080p for larger models), but they say the difference is not visible, and they are right, so don't worry about it. I save $100 buying it on compared to a brick and mortar retailer. I paid $380 in February 2013, but now, I don't know why, it went up to $427, and you can buy it for $333US on, but they don't deliver this item in Canada.
    To reply to Guy's comment, the same size of TV but Smart (i.e. with onscreen internet access) sells roughly for $200 more, if you want one.

    If you don't mind about the fashion, you will love this TV. For this range of price, you will find it a valuable choice. So far, after a year, I am happy with the quality and functions of this TV set.

    I've always appreciated Panasonic televisions (still have a 20 year old TV in the basement). This TV was a letdown though. Compared to similar televisions made by Toshiba or Samsung, the image just seemed blurry or too sharp. I always had the impression that the image was not quite right. I returned this TV and got a Samsung for a few bucks more.

    Great TV with interesting multimedia inputs, HDMI, USB, SD card and even includes some built in music when displaying a slide show. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating, because not a Smart TV, but close.

    HASH(0xb4409780) out of 5 stars A fair performer and a fair to good value for the price. June 11 2012
    By h,s (s h) - Published on

    A fair performer and a fair to good value for the price.

    As of June 2012 Panasonic doesn't even list this model, or any 24", on it's web site anymore even though it's a 2012 model. The move is to larger models (e.g, 32"). So if you want the smaller 24" size, you might want to shop around for price and buy now before these become as scarce as CRTs. This is a decent TV. Not a lot of settings but more than enough for most folks and the defaults will probably serve most folks well.

    The tiny loudspeakers sound like the tiny loudspeakers that are put in all these thin, low real estate TVs. This won't sound like your home theater system unless you plug the audio output form the TV into your receiver. Otherwise, it's going to sound like all the other TVs and laptops with tiny, tinny, loudspeaker.

    There is only one HDMI input so this might best be mated with a single BD/DVD/network-link player or game/movie-streaming device.

    The good news, it doesn't buzz incessantly like my Samsung znd hasn't committed electrical suicide like my LG.

    Btw, order your HDMI cable from amazon when you order the TV -- no point running over to, say, Best Buy, in the car at the last minute and paying $30, $40, $60 for an HDMI cable -- the Amazon cables that cost $1-$10 will work just fine.

    HASH(0xb44099a8) out of 5 stars Read the reviews and specs before buying Dec 3 2012
    By Garrett S. - Published on
    Verified Purchase
    I purchased this TV during the black Friday lightning rounds. I was among the many that didn't realize the limitations of the TV before buying. Because Amazon has both the 24 and 32 inch models on the same page it is easy to misread what you are actually getting. Amazon should separate the reviews and customer pictures for each model so that people don't anticipate something that they aren't actually getting. I should have done more research and read the specs from Panasonic's website as well...

    That being said, it was a $159 set and I really like almost everything about it.

    24inch is 1080P
    Game mode makes picture much better (Picture is sharp and bright)
    Quite thin
    Low power consumption

    Only 1 HDMI input (thought that there were more because of the 32 in reviews)
    Picture quality and viewing angles could be slightly better (But then again, this is a sub $200 TV)
    NOT LED (Again the way that both the 32in (LED) and the 24in (LCD) are combined in the same page one would assume that both are LED, but unfortunately this is not the case.)

    So my advice to anyone considering this TV, buy it as long as you are OK with 1 HDMI and are looking for a 1080P panel. LED is missing, but LCD is fine. Good luck finding something comparable for the price, it's not easy to do.

    HASH(0xb4409c00) out of 5 stars Mediocre reviews for the 24" model are dragging down the excellent reviews for the 32" model Dec 2 2012
    By Liz - Published on
    Please note that the star ratings here are combined for the 32" model and the 24" model. If you separate them, you see that the 32" model is really quite a bit better. I added up about 50 of the most recent reviews and found these average star ratings:
    32" model: 4.7
    24" model: 3.5
    Plus nearly all of all the 1 and 2 star reviews are for the 24" model.

    What this means is that you can get a really fine 32" LED TV here for an amazing price!

    The picture is GREAT! I bought the 32" model about 10 days ago, on sale at BestBuy. In the store, this Panasonic's picture quality easily beat out every other 32" LED TV on display, including the Samsung 4003 which was sitting right next to it and had a MUCH less good picture. It was also better than the Samsung UN32E5000. I've been just as pleased with the TV at home. The picture is clear, full, rich, but also nuanced--you see subtle shadings that the competition doesn't have.

    The sound isn't great, but it's good. (It's the 24" model reviews that call the sound "tinny"). The max volume is a little less than I would have expected, but fine for my needs.

    The TV is ultra slim and well built--backed with a metal plate rather than the plastic you see on most of the competition. I checked reliability ratings for different TV manufacturers and Panasonic still rates near the top. From the outside at least, this TV looks like it will last well.

    So far, I love this TV!

    HASH(0xb4409f3c) out of 5 stars Perfect 32in. TV May 16 2012
    By Alex - Published on
    Verified Purchase
    I identified this TV at the local electronic store. Loved the image and it was the only one with a real thin profile. They were soldout. It gave me the opportunity to compare this Panasonic with the LG and the Samsung. While the latest were both brighter, the colors were not true. The Panasonic was standing out. Even my 11 y.o. son saw the difference.

    Pricing is very decent as well.

    Love it.

    HASH(0xb440e1a4) out of 5 stars Best Color... Best LED TV for the Money July 22 2012
    By William Mullan - Published on
    Verified Purchase
    Compared this TV to Samsung and Toshiba 32" LED TVs at BB. No comparison on color and picture quality. Panasonic stood out so far it was not a contest! Loved the 178 degree viewing angle which the others could not come close to. Bought on Amazon and had it in 2 days! Great TV and the remote has all the controls you need but does not overwhelm you! Don't look at the others, just buy the Panasonic. You can get a cheaper TV but you are wasting your money! You can not beat it on picture quality!
