True Panasonic, or rebadged Vestel Panachronic ?

Although, that's not really too astounding for a TV to last a year, is it.

Vestal I think.
Here's a Review
I've been confused by TVs lately just discovered the only 2 brands who still make their own stuff are samsung and lg apparently. everyone else either sold the name or have the tvs made under license by vestel in Turkey

Not strictly true.

Think Panasonic, Sharp and Phillips farm out the panels to Vestel for their low end models (like this). But they still make their own high end models. Some more than others.

The likes of JVC, Bush, Hitachi though, are all badged Vestels as far as I'm aware. (Same goes for Polaroid, Wharfdale, Teknica and all the other supermarket specials)

Although, it's not a simple as that. I'd rather have a Vestel panel with a Panasonic controller board than a Polaroid one .....

true pan but low end and pretty poor
Thanks for the review link, Mad Fletch. We have two Panasonic's and the picture quality is excellent. I was thinking of this or the £250 Panny at Sainsburys as a replacement for our chunky plasma, but I think I will wait a bit for a deal on the real thing.

If you want to check if a TV has a Vestel panel, it usually says 'Assembled in Turkey' on the box.
none in Norwich

if the "chunky" plasma was either a sammy or panny, i'd have said "whyyyy"

All Panasonic models ending in 00 are Vestal manufactured e.g 400b

To be fair, the PDF manual, pictures of the control interface and physical port layout all don't look typical Vestel.

Plot thickens. I am erring towards the opinion of Andy4444 (no relation) who owns this TV and believes it is not Vestel, see his review post in an earlier deal thread for same model
hotukdeals.com/dea…643
Anyone interested may benefit from reading that thread, and also Andy4444's setup suggestions at

Not true, Panasonic allow Vestel to make their lower end TV's including this one, Pansonic still make their own higher end ones. AV Forums is the place to visit for confirmation of which models are made by Vestel.

Real Panasonic models for the UK market (and EU) will have "Assembled in Czech Republic" on the back. Likewise Real Sharp models would be only produced in Japan/China.

Does it matter if these are made in Santa's workshop? If Panasonic are putting their name on it you get their warranty!
