The Panasonic does a lot ? and does it well. It may not produce the most subtle or natural picture on the market but, for a price that doesn't cost the earth, it's certainly worth a punt...

Crisp picture brimming with detail
Punchy, vibrant palette
Userfriendly interface
Good smart features
Good colour fidelity
Rivals produce more subtlety
Dark shades of colour often overdone
Poor contrast ratio
Narrow viewing angles
Disappointing responsiveness
