Outstanding high definition picture clarity from this Panasonic 32" 1080P HD ready LCD digital TV. Featuring 24P True cinema playback, V-real pro3 picture enhancement and a SD card slot for digital photo viewing.

This is being advertised on television as one of Comet's sale items for the bank holiday weekend. It looks as though it is one of the older models which is to be superceded very soon but it does come with some good reviews for a budget 32" LCD.

Reviews found here:

Unforunately, I can't see that John Lewis have it in stock to price match as they already have the newer Panasonic models listed on their website.

Still a good price for a decent Panny LCD though.

I always thought 1080 meant it was hd but if its 780 then its hd ready. But looking at this saying 1080 and hd ready i'm not so sure.

I think that "HD Ready" is a marketing exercise by the EICTA (European Information, Communications and Consumer Electronics Technology Industry Associations) to show consumers which televisions are capable of displaying an HD image. So all HD TVs are HD Ready.

Basically some TVs were saying they were HD when they weren't so it was to clarify which were.

Bit weird really.

doesnt mean alot if it comes top of the which? best buy table - checkout how they mark the tv's then laugh - clue - 40% of the mark goes to the picture....says it all...in fact its so poor that you can have a tv with a terrible picture (say 10%) and it could feature in the best buy list - lol :roll:
they marked the pioneer kuro down because wait for it, the remote is heavy (wha?) and it uses alot of power but then admitted they hadnt actually tested the power consumption, just listened to hearsay

this was one of the nicest looking lcd teles,on a par with plasma (but they use twice as much power) i saw when i was looking. i was swithering between the 37inch version of this and the 40 inch toshiba zf. went for the tosh in the end. if i had the money i'd go for this in the bedroom.
and yeah i would not trust which either. they are not as independent as they claim.

I bought this TV last summer when Panasonic were doing their free 5 year warranty and managed to get the local Panasonic shop to price match..... still paid significantly more than this tho! Great picture (true 1080p display) 3 HDMI inputs, component and 2 scarts. Picture and sound quality have been admired from everyone who has seen it (including a mate who works for a rival TV manufacturer). Never had a second of trouble from it - would definitely recommend it.

HD is an unnofficial term used to describe a resolution higher than standard resolution. As there is NO quantification it is open to interpretation but usual guidelines refer to HD as a resolution higher than 640 x 480 pixels.

HD Ready is different and it is a specification rather than a loosely defined term. As a specification, certain conditions must be met before a TV can be given HD Ready ratification. A TV that is capable of HD resolution but NOT certified as HD Ready will NOT be able to play some HD feeds that require HD Ready certification. An example is blu ray films. A TV that does not meet HD Ready requirements (but has been described as having HD resolution) will NOT possess the HDCP decryption to play back the signal. HDCP decryption is one of the conditions of the HD Ready requirement.

HD Ready also postulates 720p vertical pixels (1080P is a condition of HD Ready 1080P although many incorrectly call it Full HD), HDCP decrption via DVI, HDMI or DisplayPort inputs, RGB component inputs, 1080i input (but NOT necessarily 1080 pixels to display it all 1:1 mapped). Somebody mentioned EICTA earlier. They are the body who define the HD Ready specifications.

Hence the terms HD and Full HD are very loose and as they are not quantified, can be interpreted in all sorts of ways. HD Ready is a standard and is a requirement for playback of blu ray feeds and some other HD feed. Currently Sky HD does NOT require an HD Ready TV for playback (despite what Sky tell you).

I would only now buy Panasonic with their 5 year guarantee, My Plasma Panasonic 42" TH-42PX80B is only 7 months old and has gone to the workshop, it requires a new screen it broke down Tuesday (picture just faded to a small corner of screen and then left with a horrible buzzing noise and no picture) expect i will be watching a portable TV for about 10 days.

I bought one last month. This is an excellent TV. Voted Hot. :thumbsup:

Can't understand why this isn't rated higher. Its a premium product compared to the £360 deals out there like this Samsung. There are better deals but they seem to be in-store only.

For £100 extra you get:
- Full HD: Which I respect is only useful on a 32" if using also as a monitor
- SD Card Reader: Huge digital photo frame
- Quality Brand: Putting aside the Which review, user reviews are incredible.

I really want to buy this but imagine I'm missing something because I trust the ratings on this site.
