A fair performer and a fair to good value for the price.

As of June 2012 Panasonic doesn't even list this model, or any 24", on it's web site anymore even though it's a 2012 model. The move is to larger models (e.g, 32"). So if you want the smaller 24" size, you might want to shop around for price and buy now before these become as scarce as CRTs. This is a decent TV. Not a lot of settings but more than enough for most folks and the defaults will probably serve most folks well.

The tiny loudspeakers sound like the tiny loudspeakers that are put in all these thin, low real estate TVs. This won't sound like your home theater system unless you plug the audio output form the TV into your receiver. Otherwise, it's going to sound like all the other TVs and laptops with tiny, tinny, loudspeaker.

There is only one HDMI input so this might best be mated with a single BD/DVD/network-link player or game/movie-streaming device.

The good news, it doesn't buzz incessantly like my Samsung znd hasn't committed electrical suicide like my LG.

Btw, order your HDMI cable from amazon when you order the TV -- no point running over to, say, Best Buy, in the car at the last minute and paying $30, $40, $60 for an HDMI cable -- the Amazon cables that cost $1-$10 will work just fine.

I purchased this TV during the black Friday lightning rounds. I was among the many that didn't realize the limitations of the TV before buying. Because Amazon has both the 24 and 32 inch models on the same page it is easy to misread what you are actually getting. Amazon should separate the reviews and customer pictures for each model so that people don't anticipate something that they aren't actually getting. I should have done more research and read the specs from Panasonic's website as well...

That being said, it was a $159 set and I really like almost everything about it.

Pro's
24inch is 1080P
Game mode makes picture much better (Picture is sharp and bright)
Quite thin
Low power consumption

Con's
Only 1 HDMI input (thought that there were more because of the 32 in reviews)
Picture quality and viewing angles could be slightly better (But then again, this is a sub $200 TV)
NOT LED (Again the way that both the 32in (LED) and the 24in (LCD) are combined in the same page one would assume that both are LED, but unfortunately this is not the case.)

So my advice to anyone considering this TV, buy it as long as you are OK with 1 HDMI and are looking for a 1080P panel. LED is missing, but LCD is fine. Good luck finding something comparable for the price, it's not easy to do.

Size Name: 32-Inch
Please note that the star ratings here are combined for the 32" model and the 24" model. If you separate them, you see that the 32" model is really quite a bit better. I added up about 50 of the most recent reviews and found these average star ratings:
32" model: 4.7
24" model: 3.5
Plus nearly all of all the 1 and 2 star reviews are for the 24" model.

What this means is that you can get a really fine 32" LED TV here for an amazing price!

The picture is GREAT! I bought the 32" model about 10 days ago, on sale at BestBuy. In the store, this Panasonic's picture quality easily beat out every other 32" LED TV on display, including the Samsung 4003 which was sitting right next to it and had a MUCH less good picture. It was also better than the Samsung UN32E5000. I've been just as pleased with the TV at home. The picture is clear, full, rich, but also nuanced--you see subtle shadings that the competition doesn't have.

The sound isn't great, but it's good. (It's the 24" model reviews that call the sound "tinny"). The max volume is a little less than I would have expected, but fine for my needs.

The TV is ultra slim and well built--backed with a metal plate rather than the plastic you see on most of the competition. I checked reliability ratings for different TV manufacturers and Panasonic still rates near the top. From the outside at least, this TV looks like it will last well.

So far, I love this TV!

I identified this TV at the local electronic store. Loved the image and it was the only one with a real thin profile. They were soldout. It gave me the opportunity to compare this Panasonic with the LG and the Samsung. While the latest were both brighter, the colors were not true. The Panasonic was standing out. Even my 11 y.o. son saw the difference.

Pricing is very decent as well.

Love it.

Compared this TV to Samsung and Toshiba 32" LED TVs at BB. No comparison on color and picture quality. Panasonic stood out so far it was not a contest! Loved the 178 degree viewing angle which the others could not come close to. Bought on Amazon and had it in 2 days! Great TV and the remote has all the controls you need but does not overwhelm you! Don't look at the others, just buy the Panasonic. You can get a cheaper TV but you are wasting your money! You can not beat it on picture quality!

So after a few weeks of research i decided to purchase this set for mostly gaming etc. I play mostly fighting games (PS3 at 720p)which are very sensitive to input lag and so far i am very pleased. Once i have the vga cables i ordered i will be able to get a proper lag test complete.

All in all for a $350 dollar set it is a good buy. Colors look nice once adjusted and decent black lvls. The one down side so far is the audio which many have posted about in their reviews. Its not terrible ...but i would grade it a C at best. The 32' version has 3 hdmi, optical out, and a usb reader which will play mp3, mp4 etc.

For the price and what you get...no complaints so far. If i can, i will upload with input lag test later down the line.

Update: as promised i wanted to update some of the input lag info I did some test via VGA cables and was able to get roughly sub 16-30ms lag which is acceptable for almost an game including shooters and fighting games which suffer the most from this problem. I will attempt to ad the screen shot from my test as well in the photo section
