Good High Def TV

One Panasonic TX-32A400 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that it was good at displaying high definition TV.

Inferior Picture Quality

One Panasonic TX-32A400 reviewer thought this TV did not have good colour saturation. Digitalmediaandit.com mentioned “Inaccurate colours”.

Average High Frequency Rate

The TX-32A400 has a fairly standard high frequency rate (100 hertz) compared to most of the other similar spec TVs that have been around for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative 100Hz refresh rate TVs currently available that you might want to consider including the Sharp LC-24LE250KWH (£199.99) which has better reviews.

If this Panasonic TV high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Grundig 28 VLE 5500 (£230.10) (200Hz and higher rated), the Samsung UE32J5000 (£263.49) (200Hz and higher rated), or the LG 32LF5610 (£174.99) (300Hz and higher rated).

32 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 32 inches television.

We compared all the other 32" televisions to this TV and we think the KDL-32EX340 (£199), and the KDL-32W705 (£279) both from Sony or the Toshiba 32DL933B which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.
