Good: Superb looks,very good picture quality and freesat and freeview tuner
Bad: Nothing important
Comment: Took ages looking at different TV's and reading all the reviews. Easy to set up and simple to operate.Picture is stunning and do not believe the reviews saying it is not.
Good: The Name
Bad: Poor Smart Features, Black levels, Motion
Comment: This does not live up to the pedigree that it should aspire to. Panasonic Plasma's are amongst the best on the market but this LED fall woefully short of the mark. The Smart feature (Which are never a strong point on Pana) are complicated to navigate and limited in their scope. The level of black detail is terrible, try playing a dark film like batman or Harry Potter and you end up losing half the detail on the screen. But the biggest let down is the Pana motion engine, it struggles with basic motion problemsand creates loads of mption artifacts. Sorry if this is a bit muddlefd but I cannot see what I am typing as the Cnet comments box is FUBAR. The only neat thing is that it looks like last years Samsung D8000 shame it doesn't look as nice as this years ES8000. but nevermind there is always next year Pana
Bad: TO complex and expensive.
Comment: now then, now then , just a wind up ! any one who.s had a panasonic knows its the best, but i dont think i can afford a new one or will be able ever to afford a new panasonic tv !.
Bad: COMPLEX AND OVER PRICED.
