Recently rated a Best Buy by Which. Not used Laskys before, but the price is £26 cheaper than anywhere else.
This HD ready, 32-inch IDTV, boasts super pictures, decent sound and the usual impressive array of features, such as an energy saving light sensor and audio description. Compared to the pricier models in the Panasonic range, it's missing a couple of sockets and some digital processing software (which makes only a marginal difference to overall picture quality).
Standard pictures are superb for depth, clarity, movement and detail although there's a very, very slight green tint. Freeview pictures are better than most and HD pictures excellent. On paper it's not fully compatible with high definition DVD players but in reality it doesn't do a bad job of coping with the mis-match in frame rates (see features explained and FAQ).
Like the rest of the 2007 Panasonic range, there's a slight problem with interference with analogue tuner sound. But it's hardly noticeable and shouldn't detract from the overall sound quality.
It also supports audio description. Found on some Freeview programmes, this is an additional narration for visually-impaired people that describes significant visual information, such as body language and scenery.
It's also a cinch to use and features well designed on-screen menus and Freeview electronic programme guide (EPG).
The remote is well laid out and clearly labeled. A coordinating pedestal stand is supplied but it can be wall mounted if a suitable bracket is purchased.
It has two HDMI for connecting to high definition equipment and two Scart sockets. Both Scarts carry RGB and are Q-Link enabled (can trigger a compatible recorder).
Handy side AV input sockets let you connect portable devices and there's a headphone output jack, which has an independent volume control. However, the TV lacks a digital audio output socket, so cannot be connected to a home cinema system, but can be connected to a hi-fi system via the stereo audio output socket.
The energy conscious will also be happy to hear it uses under 100 watts when on' and features a light sensor.
Pros: Great picture, light sensor, audio description, power use, easy to use
Cons: Not alot
