5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Full HD with Freeview HD, 16 Aug 2010
This review is from: Panasonic TX-L32S20B 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LCD TV with Freeview HD (Electronics)
You need to read the reviews for the TX-L32S10B model on Amazon as this set replaces it with the addition of a Freeview HD Tuner. Please note it does not have a Freesat HD tuner but I was aware of that when I bought it.
I prefer to record FreeSat on a separate box and play it back through a HDMI cable.
It is incredibly good when connected to a Blu-Ray or Full HD device (X-Box 360) 1080p. Judge it on that and not just on the normal Freeview HD which is 1080i and often upscaled. Even this though is very good and switching back to standard definition is very noticeable.
The tip given by a reviewer on the TX-L32S10B regarding fitting the stand was excellent and applies here.
You need to lay the screen on something soft and lower the four cross headed screws into a recess so you need a magnetic cross head screwdriver (most are) or a bit of blu-tak.
It is not fitted to slim down the box packaging.
Panasonic can not seem to finally decide where to put the on/off button yet.
All 3 of my TV's have different positions (front, top and right hand side on this model.)
It self installs once you have switched on and completed the option to set your security is completed.
A SD card reader is built in to view your digital pictures or movies.
Security is a worry as Flat Screen TV's are targeted by thieves (just lost 2 Panasonics myself) . They are light and easily moved. This one is padlocked to the heavy stand with an unobtrusive bicycle security chain.

Thank you for your comment. I thought I had said it is a good TV to watch when I said

Thanks Tellboy. Not a Blue-Ray user and just returned the 32G20B as being awful for its picture when watching normal transmitted programmes. Waiting on Amazon if they'll take it back. My TX26LXD70 is superb and gets comments on its quality. The G20B therefore was a shock. I noticed then that it is 50HZ as opposed to the S20B and the LXD70 bot at 100HZ. I am hoping the S20 will measure up as Panasonic put so much more on and wading through so many manufacturers and models is a nightmare. Thanks for your help and response

I am sure that 100Hz causes the improvement. Once you have got used to watching the HD channels on Freeview if they are transmitting in your area it does seem very noticeable switching back to the ordinary channels.
