This is an excellent value Smart TV with a sharp, vibrant screen and full sound. My only quibble is that the lag when making a menu selection is significant and frustrating; you don't want to accidentally come out of a menu and have to start to again. e.g. it can be up to 3 secs before anything happens when selecting a particular channel from the TV guide or when selecting a programme from the on demand area, or when opening an app. Worth trying out in a store before you buy if possible to make sure this is acceptable to you.

Having said that, it seems at this price point, there will be compromises to make whatever TV you buy. I found according to my research that this TV was best overall (in terms of Smart features, screen and sound) for the budget I had (<£400) and size I wanted (~40").

warning - amazon app will buffer lots unless you get a firestick and use the firestick to view amazon. called up panasonic, they said that unless you have over 20MB broadband they wont help (nonsense as HD only needs about 4MB to stream). amazing firestick streams the same movies perfectly.

This is an excellent TV and for the money, a bit of a bargain to boot.

The TV is a very attractive design in my opinion. The bezel is about 1cm, and barely thicker along the bottom edge. One nitpick would be the green power on LED on the front is on the bright side. It doesn't bother me, but I know lots of people who would find it distracting. Nothing a bit of tape wouldn't fix.

The image quality is very good and exceeded my expectations for a TV in this price range. Black levels and motion handling were two big concerns for me with this set, as in this world you generally get what you pay for. I'm happy to say I needn't have worried. After a bit of tweaking the brightness and contrast settings I've managed to improve on what was already a good picture out of the box. Movies & sport look great, especially in HD, and I've generally been impressed with the colour saturation and contrast. I'm a photographer so I would say I have above average demands for image quality, and this panel delivers. There is a minor amount of motion blur and stutter if you look for it with certain content, but to be quite honest it's no worse than my friend's Samsung at 3x the price. It's just the nature of the technology.

Sound, again, is above average and above expectations. Admittedly I have an ideal setup (centre wall mounted in a square room) but I would say the speakers are more than capable for most people if you're just watching TV and the occasional film. I was going to buy a sound bar but I'm debating whether to bother now.

So what's bad about this TV? I did my research before buying, and, while I can't attest to this personally, there are apparently better sets out there if you're serious about gaming due to variable/nothing special input lag.

Size: 40-inchStyle: TV Only Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 7:15 Mins
The Panasonic TX-40CS520B TV is a whopping 40 inch HD LED TV with inbuilt Smart and FreeView.

WHAT YOU GET:
The TV arrives tightly packed with protective polystyrene packaging inside a huge reasonably-flat cardboard box. Inside the box you get the TV itself which measures approximately 90cm (W) x 52cm (H) x 4.5cm (D) - when not attached to the stand. The included stand measures approximately 54cm (W) x 6cm (H) x 24cm (D) and when fixed to the TV will add an additional 6cm to its overall height (i.e. making a total height of 58cm). You also get a TV remote which measures 21.5cm (H) x 5cm (W) x 2.5cm (D) along with two Panasonic branded AA batteries for putting into the remote. Finally, the TV comes with a very easy-to-follow instruction manual.

SET-UP:
I've literally never had a TV that was so easy to set up. First of all you need to screw the stand to the TV (unless you're putting the TV onto your wall). Then it's a simple case of plugging in your aerial, plugging the TV into the power, and then switching it on. The TV will then guide you through the whole set-up, including an auto-scan for channels, sorting out the SMART channels/apps and even provides you with a visual guide of the various functions and options available once it's done.

I'd say that from getting the TV out of the packaging to being fully set up and checking everything out, took around 15 - 20 mins. And this included linking up to our wireless router to enable the SMART aspects.

IN USE:
First of all the picture quality that the TV provides is (in our opinion) excellent. Being a flat LED screen, there's almost no glare at all across the screen (from lights or windows), the picture is also very sharp and crisp, with vivid and bright colours.

Size: 40-inchStyle: TV Only Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
OK, there is now so much choice out there when it comes to mid-range TV panels that even at this price point the TX40 is going to face stiff competition. Well my first thoughts here are that I am impressed, very impressed. I’ve always been a fan of Panasonic preferring their natural colours to similar priced Samsung, Pioneer alternatives and on first viewing this set does indeed seem to offer a lot for your money.

Unpacking the TV immediately reveals just how much flat screen panel technology has advanced over the years - I was completely taken aback by just how light the unit was and was able to assemble the TV by myself within minutes (thanks to Panasonic for a very ergonomic & used friendly stand mechanism). Looks wise I would say that discrete rules the day, the panel is completely unobtrusive and looks as if it has been designed for wall mounting. The stand is good enough though and although made of plastic has a brushed metal appearance set against a black frame, it really is hard to believe this is 40” which a few years ago would have been considered large.

In terms of spec again Panasonic have been generous. Firstly we have a 100HZ LED panel (50HZ just doesn’t cut the mustard these days) with adaptive backlight dimming to add “realism” to picture contrast. Despite its thinness (the panel is a mere 47mm wide) Panasonic have squeezed in 20W of amplification with added surround sound effects to increase the sound stage. Now this is never going to replace a sound bar or more advanced audio and I found the surround sound option to be mediocre, but on first listen, voices and even music had a depth and tonal quality that genuinely surprised me, not harsh on the ears at all and all very natural.
