Dynamic Contrast 20,000:1
Enjoy realistic starlit skies right in your living room. Improvements in panel contrast and scene-adaptive contrast gamma correction have achieved a high contrast ratio of 20,000:1. The backlight tuning area is also expanded to achieve deeper blacks.
100Hz Intellgent Flame Creation Pro
Even fast-moving scenes are displayed sharply and clearly. With a 50Hz video signal input, 100Hz Intelligent Frame Creation Pro makes 100 frames/second from 50 frames/second. This increases the frame count to allow natural frame-to-frame transitions, for smooth motion images with high resolution. VIERA also uses motion focus technology to greatly enhance resolution.
Wide Viewing Angle
The wide 178°* viewing angle ensures clear images even when viewed from an angle. The backlight's wide transmission aperture enhances the contrast between light and dark, and improves motion-image response.
24p Smooth Film
Enjoy naturally flowing 24p films and familiar TV-like quality. This mode optimises the number of frames of 24p images recorded from film media such as a Blu-ray Disc™. Advanced source analysis and frame generation produce smooth images that are faithful to the original.
VIERA televisions deliver the best of sounds with V-Audio technologies. Gives depth-sound-image effect by early-reflection data based on actual room measurement, that is generated from digital signal processor.
VIERA Image Viewer (Photos and Videos)
It's easy to view HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Card into VIERA to display photos and videos on the large screen. An easy-to-see, easy-to-use thumbnail display has also been added. Special new slideshow frames, and an increased number of display effects are also included. Plus, messages and memos can be added to photos from a PC to create detailed travelogues and original slideshows with messages for special people. This further expands the possibilities for VIERA enjoyment.
VIERA Link allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.
The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to use access key functions by pressing a single button. Functions are easier to use, and there's no complicated operation.
In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.
Standby Power Save
When the VIERA power is turned off, the power consumption of connected devices* is minimised.

However, I've worked with TV sales in my time, and I know that the ones you don't get returned are SONY, Panasonic and Toshiba - although I think the Toshiba stuff has reduced in quality recently, which is a great shame.
Managed to get this elsewhere very cheap - £169, which again is a shame - I usually buy everything from Amazon.
For the same price, you'd be looking at the next step down - Hitachi, Philips, Samsung - but with a built in DVD.
I decided to opt for the Pana, as it's a make I trust.
The main issue with smaller flatscreen TV's is the sound quality - in some cases, even with the big makes, the sound is awful - I'd even say not fit for purpose. With a bigger TV you can take this - you buy a separate amplifier, or connect it to your stereo or PC, but in the case of the smaller ones, you don't always want to.
The Pana sound is great - as good if not better than the old CRT portable TV's - and trust me, you don't get that often with TV's now - they tend to be PC monitors with TV tuners onboard!
Being a Panasonic fan, already have a 32 " as our main TV I wanted a cheapo for the bedroom. I bought a 22" Toshiba but when I installed it and watched it for a day or two I became very disappointed with the picture quality, the blacks seemed to wash out in dark scenes so I returned it and bought this one, a much better TV overall ( a bit dearer though), my one gripe is that I have to set the picture mode to Dynamic to get a comfortable picture, the other settings even with "User preferred" seem to dark. A good TV at this price and the sound is good as well
One major gripe though. Though not fatal to the overall review of this TV, and it`s only my personal view, the TV picture (no matter WHAT the setting ) is always way too dark. I`ve turned their version of ambient light affecting the screen off, hiked up the brightness, messed until i`m blue in the face with the settings and all to no avail. The energy saving nonsense that`s built into the TV goes too far for my liking.
In conclusion it`s a dark picture with everything, bluray, PS3, TV...UNLESS you put the brightness RIGHT UP to the top setting, and juggle the contrast. But as I say, that`s all just my personal view.
On a positive note, it`s good to see that this new generation of ultra affordable LCD panels can do better ' blacks ' than previous models, it really is pretty good!
The price : Hey, for this price there isn`t that much to moan about here, is there? My advice is buy it - overall, it`s probably one of the best bedroom TV`s on the market at the moment!( if not THE best ) :-)
Yes,excellent picture, and excellent sound.
My other telly is a larger Panasonic for the main living room, it was also supplied through Amazon, and is also very good all round, and was delivered equally speedily
and efficiently. Both were top value for money. I'm sure that both will fulfill the reputation for reliability that panasonic has.
There are just two minor niggles: the on-off button on the remote control of the 22" one is hard to engage. On both the sets, the programme display is accompanied by a rather irritating changing series of adverts occupyng about 35% of the screen on the left side. I should have thought that Panasonic would be above that sort of thing.
