Seems to be at least £40/50 dearer elsewhere....and I note it has a decent IPS panel.

Prefer plasma myself [not at this size of course] but should be decent for LCD.

Well spotted! )

I wonder how it handles games. Also, not easy to find a review (never a good sign)

Is full HD really important for a screen of this size? I've heard before that it will only make a difference for a screen of 40" or over. I'm a total technological noob so any information would be greatly appreciated. So many great 32" TV deals at the moment that I don't know where to turn.

personally i think this is a better deal so aint voted either way

Read somewhere that it's a value model that only certain retailers sell.

It makes no difference. The average human eye can't resolve the difference in pixels between 1080p and 720p on anything below 40" sat at a normal viewing difference. If you sit with your nose pressed against the TV then maybe, otherwise it's not important. Things like how well the TV reproduces blacks makes a lot more difference.

There is no such thing as 'normal' viewing distance. Everyone is different, while some might have this TV in their bedroom, others might have in in their living room, but might sit closer to it than what the person in the bedroom. Stating normal viewing distance just clouds the situation even more.

1080p is 1080p which is 1920 x 1080 and will always be 1920 x 1080, this does not change with screen size, the pixels just get smaller on smaller screens or larger on larger screens. This is why you need to sit closer to smaller screens to be able to notice the difference. I view 1080p on a 24" Monitor/TV and I wear glasses and I can quite clearly nitce the difference when watching Blu-rays or 1080i TV over watching on a 720p screen. So yes, the human eye can resolve the difference, very easily. If you don't know what you are talking about, why make stuff up?

Full agree with shawty1984, it all depends on your viewing distance!

Unless you sit with your nose pressed against the screen, 720p is fine on a 32" TV. Not many new 720p sets about now, though, and they tend to lack the bells & whistles that go with only slightly more expensive 1080p models.

Good price for a panny 1080p but I think this Tosh with FreeviewHD integrated @ £300 is a better buy.

Have to say that I cannot find this model number on Panny's website but this looks like it might be a very similar spec panasonic.co.uk/htm…tml

Only difference I spot straight away is that this one posted uses V Real Pro 3 processing whereas the one linked to above has V Real Pro 4, so perhaps this is an old discontinued model? Might explain why it's not widely available on the 'net. [I note that Pixmania state it is no longer stocked for example],

This model is indeed an old model (2 years old I believe. The S20 being current, the S10 being last years and then this being the equivalent of the S range prior to the model number shake up)

Bought this TV myself about a month ago for £320 from Dixons and I can't fault it, so it's hot from me

Panasonic is king when it comes to LCD/Plasmas



sorry but no.
the plasmas are awesome for picture quality, and only their better LCDs are good - just like sony and samsung and LG there are different grades of tv

having read many reviews its apparent that panasonics scaling is not as good as, say, samsung series 6 and up, and they seem to have problems with handling ntsc and 24p - just read hdtvtest reviews

having said that, I have a panny plasma 42g15 and it has beautiful picture, I rely on the connected PS3 to scale dvds and freeview TV via the playtv.

Just ordered for my son mainly to use for gaming, now reading above comments not sure whether I should of gone with a samsung or an LG which seem to be around the same price. Can anyone give me any advice please
