LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV after adjustment 15 May 2014
Size Name:50-inch|Verified Purchase
Well it looks like I'm the first person to review this TV so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Good points:

The picture. Out the box it's amazing for a computer game, but for more realistic colours and softer viewing I just needed to adjust the TV settings to something a little less garish and bright. This isn't a fault, it's set to what most people like these days at switch on. It's got a better picture than my previous viera TV and cost half the price! Sound is OK for a slim TV with some tone adjustments. I didn't need a smart TV as I just use my TV as a monitor, I don't even use the TV's tuner. Most people these days use roku, sky, humax etc so having a multitude of internet added apps just seems a waste as I never used them on the previous TV. Despite tech specs this TV does have an ethernet connection although I have no idea what it's for.

Bad points:

Only 2 HDMI inputs. A bit stingy to say the least but it's enough for my set top box and ps3.

TV gets 5 stars and I'm far from disappointed. Excellent if you don't need all the bangs and whistles (that you'll never use)

5.0 out of 5 stars Basic Features.. But Good Quality 30 July 2014
Size Name:50-inch
Great TV. Nothing to complain about with the picture or the sound. Only downside is the interface and program selection is a little slow and old fashioned. Would be nice to be able to scroll through the channel list without having to mash the down arrow. However this is not advertised as a smart TV and I didn't buy it for any fancy features. If your hooking this up to a separate Freeview, Tivo or Sky box then you don't have to worry about the channel list been a little slow and it would be perfect for you.

Basically: Quality Picture and Sound. Just a little basic with the features. Perfect for use in combination with a separate system and/or games console.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good buy 30 July 2014
Size Name:42-inch|Verified Purchase
Just a really good screen. No smart stuff but if you connect it to one of the newest gaming consoles you don't need it. Tv remote could be slightly better quality, but overall the Tv is perfect for my needs.

Size Name:50-inch
I wanted to live with this 2014 Panasonic Viera A400 LCD Television Set (50" Model) for a few weeks before doing a review and I'm glad I did. In a nutshell - I'm really pleased with it and enjoying its huge range of facilities - but there are few things worth discussing and pointing out for prospective buyers.

Our home was previously the proud owner of a Sony BRAVIA LED 42" TV for over five years and going to another brand was going to be a gamble. So why move? The reason is price. These big televisions used to be 2000 two years ago - now the 2014 42" Panny is 350 and their 50" model is less than 500 (we actually got ours for 480 through a large retailer). That's incredible value for money for what you're getting.

The first couple of days made me feel disappointed after the clarity of the Sony - but of course it took a while for the screen to burn in and the picture quickly graduated to gorgeous. For instance the World Cup on ITV HD looks fabulous - as clear and as steady as you could hope for. But when you go back to Freeview and standard mode on Terrestrial TV - the quality naturally dips. But this will be the same on all TVs - and that's unfortunately a source problem few of us can do anything about (once you discover HD - you'll find it hard to watch anything else).

It's wide and skinny - and despite the sheer size of the outer box - deceptively light. The Panasonic has 5 Picture Aspects to choose from - Dynamic, Normal, Cinema, True Cinema and Game. I personally found anything except Dynamic too dull for my tastes. There are controls on Backlight, Contrast, Sound and even a Child Lock (and loads more).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great picture with basic features 20 Jun 2014
By Michael
Size Name:50-inch
The picture is excellent for this price. You lose out on many features, but if you don't need them this is a no-brainer. I have the TV connected to my PC, so didn't really need any smart features. The lack of HDMI ports can be easily solved with a HDMI switch too. 3D as I'm sure everyone knows is quite niche.

The TV is good looking, with a thin bezel and a great open stand that you can put a speaker/something else within.

One minus point is the on-screen interface, which is quite ugly compared to my 40" Samsung. The guide also has no picture-in-picture, and flicking through the guide actually changes the channel instead of simply letting you view what is on with your current channel in the background.

I could not remove a star for the interface though, as this is a 50" set for ~500 which gives you a great picture.

Did not purchase from Amazon as I found it slightly cheaper at Tesco for a short time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A basic TV with a great quality picture 2 Jun 2014
Size Name:50-inch
This TV was purchased to replace an older TV in my home AV system and is being used just as a display. I've only been using it for a few days but some first thoughts.

- Great quality display, thin bezel and lovely picture, but the TV has a basic feature set.

- It has 'just' two HDMI inputs.

- Beyond a feature called "Interaction Channel" the TV provides no smart services, in fact given the almost complete lack of smart features the inclusion of an Ethernet port is surprising.

- As with many modern thin TVs the sound quality isn't great, it does the job but no more, but as I use an AV amp it's not an issue.

- The TV only seems to support over-the-air software updating, so no updates over the internet or using the USB port.

- The HDMI ports are on the rear of the set and 'point' out towards the rear, so using straight HDMI plugs may be difficult if the set is mounted on a wall. I used a 90 HDMI socket adapter (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/product/) so I could re-use my existing straight cables.

- TV has an Auto Standby feature which turns the TV off after a period of time if no operations are performed on the TV, this is slightly annoying if you're using the TV just as a display and therefore don't need to use the TV's remote, but this can be turned off.

- I haven't managed to get the Audio Return Feature (ARC) to work, but this may be a configuration issue with my amp, but as I'm only using the TV as a display I haven't looked into this too far.

- Freeview looked lovely, especially with HD channels and I seem to have all the channels I expected.

- I threw a load of various differing .mkv, .m4v and .
