I don't know what it is with men but when you move into a new house one of their first purchases has to be a big screen television. When we moved into our house a few years ago this was definitely on the agenda for my husband so off we went to Currys to buy a TV. Now, I don't know that much about televisions so I mostly left it to him but I did know what I like when it comes to style and wanted to purchase a television that would like nice in our front room.

We decided upon a Panasonic Viera. According to their website a VIERA is, "a revolutionary line-up of digital TV in NeoPDP (new generation plasma technology with 600Hz sub-field drive), Plasma and LCD technologies - raising the standards in design, picture quality and home entertainment connectivity."

What I like about this television is that it's very sleek and stylish looking. It has a shiny black border all the way around it and then at the bottom there is a strip of grey chrome coloured panel that houses the on and off button and the manual television buttons. The on/off button is a press in one and so far, having had the television for a few years now it is still working well and we have not had to replace it. Apparently this button is one of the first things to go wrong on televisions.

We went for the 42" television which is lovely and big but not too overpowering for our somewhat small front room. The television sits on a black stand which it slots into and because it is so thin really does not take up too much room at all. The television came with HD, at the time we bought it it was just HD ready but now that a lot of channels are broadcasting in HD we watch in HD and the picture quality is really good. It has been tested this week whilst watching the football. We watched a little bit on non-HD and then when we switched to HD you could really tell the difference by looking up close at the grass and the footballers faces, etc.

The television came with a black remote control which is the only thing I don't like about the television. The remote is quite plastic looking and the buttons are quite hard to press, you really have to press them hard to make it register on the television. Other than that it is quite a standard remote with all the buttons you need on it.

The television cost us £700 in the sale and so far has been a great purchase.

We have a HD ready TV so Hubby went and bought a HD freeview box on Saturday to watch the football, however we can't get freeview HD in this area so it has had to go back. Needless to say Hubby is still sulking
