- Panasonic Viera tx-l32e6b TV – anyone got one?
Cheers ElShalimo. Is that just a bigger version of exactly the same model? Main priority is something with a great picture and half decent sound for no more than £400.
Coincidentally, I was gonna reply to your earlier post. I’m in Calderdale – if you can get out mid-week at all, I’ll show you a route or two sometime. I’ll give you my email if you let us know on here.Posted 4 years ago
Yep, it’s the same one but bigger screen.
The picture quality is great and for such a thin unit the sound is pretty good. We looked at loads before we chose this. We got it because it had a great picture, built-in HD freeview, built-in WiFi and was easy to use. We got it from John Lewis to get the 5year guarantee and they price matched a cheaper shop too.
re: routes – midweek is hard cos I’m always working late, I’ll have to try to join a weekend ride. thanksPosted 4 years ago
Cheers again – sounds like it could be the perfect telly for us. I noticed the JL 5-year guarantee online too. Can you remember who they price matched with? No worries if not.
I ride weekends too, just got a lot on next month at the weekends. If you like, email me on will at williamlake dot com and I’ll drop you a line for a weekend ride sometime. Might just be in 3 or 4 weeks’ time. Otherwise, good luck route finding – absolutely loads over here around Hebden/Widdop/Stoodley/Ogden. Try asking in Blazing Saddles, too.Posted 4 years ago
Got the 42″ version too, very pleased with it generally. Picture is fantastic after I followed the settings guide online somewhere (maybe avforums), gives a great natural CRT-esque picture, occasionally miss the lack of higher refresh rate. As it’s not an IPS (?) panel viewing angles aren’t as wide as plasma or IPS but works fine in our sitting room with one sofa directly in front and one offset about 30°. Sound is acceptable.
Aps are pretty poor tbh, not a patch on Samsung/LG, by reputation anyway. However iplayer, youtube and Netflix are great and the latter two work seemlessly with android aps, shame there’s no 4oD etc (yet?). Networking is a breeze. Interface is a bit slow too, not annoyingly so, and I am picky, but I can see why people are pushing dual core processors. Interface itself is clear and easy to navigate although probably room for improvement.
A solid 8/10.Posted 4 years ago
I have the 37″ version, just watch out for “dynamic” brightness adjustment which you can’t (appear to) turn off. Bloody annoying as it makes the picture reeeeaaallly dark even with the brightness up full. Then when you up the volume or use anything with the OSD, it makes the picture readable again!Posted 4 years ago
Lovely TV if it wasn’t for this feature though.
Cheers ElShalimo – I’ll shop around first for the cheapest deal for JL to match.
Bimbler, chojin – cheers. I’m a total TV tech dunce. Viera sounds like a good all-rounder from what I’ve read generally, although is this dynamic brightness thing a deal breaker? Don’t want a dud feature to ruin an otherwise good telly.Posted 4 years ago
A lot of those options are missing from my menu, in particular the ambient sensor and backlight control settings.
You definitely cannot turn it off on my model :/
Are you sure it’s the e6b model you’ve got, as there is no 37″ version?
The operating instructions make no distinction between the models, although from memory I can’t remember seeing a 1080p pixel direct setting.Posted 4 years ago
I rang Richer Sounds yesterday who assure me that you can switch the dynamic brightness off on the e6b. I couldn’t find a 37″ version either, so I think you have a different telly, chojin. Reviews for the e6b pretty much all say stunning picture, particularly in HD, so I’d be a bit surprised if there was such a fundamental visual problem like the one you described.Posted 4 years agoSpeederSubscriber
I’ve got an equivalent 37″ I think and it’s a good telly though I wouldn’t recommend it if you ever want to hook it up to the web as the Viera interface has a lot to be desired in terms of what you can get on it.
I don’t necessarily think I’d have bought anything else but it definitely doesn’t work as well as I’d have liked it to on the web front.Posted 4 years ago
