7 Reasons For
A Best Selling Television
Across all TVs, the TX-24DS500 is one the best selling products currently available for purchase according to sales data from Amazon.
Only Released Seven Months Ago
Panasonic only released the TX-24DS500 seven months ago. Newer TVs like this one are likely to have better features.
Panasonic Has Good Reviews for Its TVs
Panasonic has good average reviews for its small screen size televisions as well as across its entire TV range compared to other brands.
Has a WiFi Connection
The TX-24DS500 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other televisions that have been available for the last year do not have a WiFi connection.
Very Fast Motion Interpolation Frequency
At 400 hertz, the TX-24DS500 has a fairly fast motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other televisions that have been available for a comparable time to the TX-24DS500. Across all the latest small screen size televisions the motion interpolation frequencies range from 60Hz to 400Hz, and the average motion interpolation frequency is 190Hz.
This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is typical of many recently released small screen size televisions.
+2 More reasons for
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
Across all the small screen size televisions that have been on the market for a comparable time to the TX-24DS500 the annual energy consumptions range from 20kWh to 55kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 34kWh. With an annual energy consumption of only 24 kilowatt hours, the TX-24DS500 has a quite low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other newly released televisions.
7 Reasons Against
Only HD Ready HD Type
The highest display resolution of the TX-24DS500 is HD Ready. That's 56% less display resolution than a Full HD TV, which is the most common display resolution.
This TV's display resolution (HD Ready) is in fact the worst display resolution amongst all small screen size televisions that have been on the market for a comparable time to the TX-24DS500.
The best display resolution amongst comparable types of TV is Full HD.
Not 3D Compatible
Like most of the other small screen size televisions that have been around for around the same time as the TX-24DS500, the TX-24DS500 is not 3D compatible.
Does Not Support Smart TV Features
Most new TVs do not support smart TV features. The TX-24DS500 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.
We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also support smart TV features including the HG24EE460[pl_3541171_price], or the HG28EE470[pl_3541172_price] both from Samsung.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most TVs that were released around the same time as the TX-24DS500 do not have a built-in camera. The TX-24DS500 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
+4 More reasons against
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
The Panasonic TX-24DS500 does not feature OLED technology, although keep in mind that most of the other small screen size televisions that have been around for the last year also do not feature OLED technology.
Across all the new small screen size televisions the weights range from 1.5kg to 5.9kg. With a weight of 4.5 kilograms, the TX-24DS500 is quite heavy compared to most of the other newly released small screen size televisions.
High Running Costs
Whilst this Panasonic television has an energy efficiency classification of A+, the TX-24DS500 is one of the less economic to run new small screen size televisions that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the TX-24DS500 will cost £69 over 5 years to run.
1 Other reason to consider the Panasonic TX-24DS500
At 59 millimeters, the TX-24DS500 has a pretty average thickness compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been around for the last year.
TVs with a thicker thickness that might be worth considering include the Philips 24HFL2839[plb_3226804_price] (61mm) which is also cheaper.
