Ive just recently bought the Panasonic TX-26LXD70 after spending hours researching websites, reviews and chatrooms trying to work out the best 26 inch to buy.
Not matter where i went most people agreed that this is presently the best 26 inch TV on the market and what i have seen of it so far i wholeheartly agree.
Set up is very easy as it is with most HD TV's, connect your aerial, power it up and all channels are searched and stored automatically. The picture quality is superb and i knew straight away i was on a winner. As i bought this TV for my bedroom the in-built speakers delivery a quality sound so there was no need to buy additional speakers. I bought a cheap DVD player that upscales DVD's and the result is stunning, the film's are so much clearer and im seriously thinking about getting a Blu-ray player to see just how good it can get.
I've also played the XBOX 360 through it, Pro Evolution 08 was quality, its like playing a new console, picture and details are brilliant.
Although it is more expensive than most TV's at this size, i can guarantee it's money well spent! I literally couldn't be happier with it.
