This deal came up last month, but with the much better price of £399.99. It's gone up £40 now, but I reckon that it's still a nice, branded TV at a competitive price. Perhaps not super-hot, but definitely warm.

Manufacturer's Description
SUPERIOR IMAGE AMBIENCE ADVANCED LCD AI IN SCENES WITH DARK IMAGES, VIERA REPRODUCES CRISP, DEEP BLACKS WITHOUT OVER-EMPHASISING THE WHITES VIERA.
Entertainment that Goes a Step Beyond. Featuring the Active Light Control and Active Contrast/Gamma Control systems, the Advanced LCD AI technology improves picture brightness, deepens blacks and increases gradation. It boosts dynamic range (from black to white peak) by 2.8 times in comparison to the original range. For all types of images, this technology also optimally matches the picture-enhancing process to the characteristics of the LCD device. You see rich, natural colours with superior gradation, even in images where blacks tend to appear as blots on other televisions.


GREATER DETAIL, DEPTH AND REALISM ACTIVE CONTRAST / GAMMA CONTROL
This circuitry improves detail in both darker and brighter parts of the image, achieving a crisper, clearer picture. Active Contrast Control detects the input signal brightness level and increases contrast by dynamically extending the output luminance signal. Active Gamma Control then boosts gradation in the luminance areas with the most image elements. The result is greater detail, depth and realism than ever before.


DYNAMIC CONTRAST ACTIVE LIGHT CONTROL
Bright scenes are sharper and easier to see. Dark scenes benefit from deeper, crisper blacks. The circuitry automatically detects the input signal brightness level and adjusts the backlight accordingly in real-time. This is a dramatic improvement over conventional LCD TVs, which often suffer from insufficient maximum brightness and a lack of depth due to weak black reproduction. Active Light Control expands the dynamic range up to 2.8 times the previous range. What's more, C.A.T.S. (Contrast Automatic Tracking System) automatically senses the ambient light conditions and adjusts the screen making it easier to see by brightening it when the room is well lit, and darkening it when the room is dark.

Well, I can't find this TV cheaper anywhere else either.

I also can't find any decent branded 32" lcd tvs any cheaper. The best I can find is one of the new Tosh 32s, at around £460-470.

Sure, you can get a Hannspree or Techwoods 32" for around £300 these days, but this would look and perform so much better.

But thanks for the +ve ballast hothothot!

This is not the same TV as the Littlewoods & Argos one though - look at the reviews on Amazon - it does not have freeview. Shame because it would be a good price for the LMD-70, but not really for the LM-70 which is a different model. Empire Direct stock the LMD-70 for £529.99.

The TVs linked to at Argos etc are not the same model. The LM70 and LMD70 use the same panel but the LM is analogue tuner only, LMD has a decent freeview tuner as well.

Damn good telly - I've had an LMD70 for a few months, which cost me about £550 in a comet online sale.

One review at Amazon states " not intended for the UK market ".. :?

This TV is very different from the LMD70, the differences aren't limited to Freeview or No Freeview. Im pretty sure the LM doesn't have VGA and also uses a different panel to the LMD

Simply put: The Tosh 32C3030D is probably a better buy at this price

Agree that it might be a parallel import however as it's not on the Panasonic UK website, suspect it's Irish.

At £400 it was an absolute bargain, but at £440 it is just ok. You should factor in that a decent quality freeview will set you back about £30, in which case it is in the same price bracket as all the other branded LCDs.
