Review of "Panasonic TX32PB50"
Recently my television broke, well, it was probably repairable but it was a good excuse to go out and buy a new one. My husband had been going on and on about buying a flatscreen large tv for ages so I think he willed the other tv dead!!We decided to buy from Curry's as we didn't have the money to buy one outright and Curry's were offering a buy now pay in 1 year. You would not believe how technical it can be when buying anything other than an ordinary, run-of-the-mill television.
We went for a Sharp 32" television which we thought looked really sexy! We picked it up and took it home (big telly's - very heavy!!!) After a couple of days we noticed there seemed to be a fault with the picture, it was distorting quite badly across both sides and making straight lines in programs/films into wiggly bent ones! We found out that this all has to do with the "geometrics" and it shouldn't happen but with some wide/flatscreen tv's this does happen. We took the tv back and started looking again!We had been advised that if we were going to purchase a Flatscreen tv of 32" or more then to go for one with 100HZ flicker free technology as this reduces the amount of flickering apparent with a larger tv.
We opted for the Panasonic TX32PB50 because it had so many little extras.
100HZ Super Digital Scan
Advanced progressive scan
Dolby Digital Surround Sound (with 3 speakers)
and Also multiwindow which includes
PIP - Picture in picture - allows you to watch one channel whilst a silent picture of another channel in the corner so you can see what's on or watch two channels at one time switching between channels on the sound!
PAT - Picture and text - Half picture half teletext
PAP - Picture and picture - Half one channel Half another channel.
Well, so far I would say that this television is well worth it. We paid £750 for it as they are apparently being phased out for new models coming in. I know their retail price is about £12-1400 depending on where you get it from, we bought ours as a display model so it was cheaper. I have seen these particular models advertised on the internet for around £800 so shop around, don't pay the high price!
