1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely dreadful sound, 31 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-L19X5B 19-inch Widescreen HD Ready LED TV with Freeview HD - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Imagine you have just spent about £200 on a new flat screen TV. The picture is great, but you are listening to what appears to be a 1960's mono transistor radio. This is not sound being 'different', this is sound being of an appalling inferior quality. I've tried to ignore, it, but I can't. The laughable audio controls don't affect the sound one bit (aside from the balance). Do manufacturers really believe that we are so desperate to shave a cm or so off the thickness of our TVs that we will put up with this rubbish? I wish I were exaggerating, but I'm not; sometimes I have to strain to hear what is being said.

I have a large Panasonic Viera which I am very happy with - but this is a sore disappointment. And I don't see why I should fork out more cash for a separate sound system to make it listenable.

Back it goes.

Thanks for this review. I had hoped that by now the manufacturers would have got the message about sound quality on almost all flat screen TVs. I have yet to see/hear a flat screen TV that comes anyway near my old Sony CRT monster. Why is the thickness of the TV such a huge issue? Yes, I can buy a seperate sound system but as you say, why should I? And this is progress??
