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.
