Panasonic TX-32ES500B 32-Inch Widescreen 720p HD Ready Smart LED TV – Small and light weight

Am sorting out the extra features.

This is my first led tv, so maybe i’m expecting too much, but i am currently struggling to get as good a picture on this as i have on my 10 year old panasonic plasma screen. The image is clear, and the colours are not bad, if a little over saturated at times on the default setting. My main issue is that the image does not appear to be as bright and vibrant as i would like, despite having been fiddling with the contrast and backlight settings since last night. Using the dynamic settings makes everything very bright, particularly with whites, so i am using the normal setting, but with adjustments. Maybe it will just take some getting used to. Edit:- i have just discovered that a setting to automatically adjust the screen according to the ambient lighting was on by default. This seems to dim the screen quite significantly, even in low room lighting. I have turned the setting off, and am now getting a brighter picture, which is much more pleasing then before. What i do like is the large selection of apps included. You have youtube, iplayer, itv hub, and both channel 4 and channel 5 catch up services, plus quite a few other apps that i will probably never use, and access to an app store to get even more (some are free, some are not).

This is a pretty expensive unit but it is worth the money when you consider that it has all of the smarts and you do not have to jump through hoops to set it up. I researched pretty much everything in this size and this panasonic was the only one with all of the smarts. It is great for a small student bedroom and my daughter is delighted with it.

Superb product and great price.

Features of Panasonic TX-32ES500B 32-Inch Widescreen 720p HD Ready Smart LED TV with Freeview HD (2017 Model)

  • Smart TV with Easy Catch-Up TV and Streaming
  • Go The Other Way with Freeview Play

This is a great little 32” tv, bought on amazon prime day for just £290. The tv is lighter than i thought it was going to be but the last tv i bought was one of panasonic’s plasma screens in 2011. This tv is for bedroom use and we were a little hesitant thinking a 32” would be too big for the room, however as soon as we got it up on the wall it fits great. I am impressed by the sound quality, it fills up our bedroom with ease. It’s not the bassiest but you can’t expect a tv of this size to be. And by no means is the sound tinny. The picture quality is definitely the wow feature, if you’ve owned a panasonic before then you won’t be disappointed with this little addition. Bit of tweaking in the settings and the picture quality is really impressive for a tv this size. Other than playing around with the picture settings, setup was very quick and painless. I do like the freeview play feature straight from the epg, especially when you’ve missed something you wanted to watch.

The sound isn’t brilliant and when switching channels it reverts to the previous channel a few times before deciding that you really want to stay on that new channel. Somewhat annoying but i cant be bothered to return it as i’ve not got the packaging anymore.

Very clear and clean screen, easy set up and mounts easily on the wall. Sound is not bad, but could be better. Plenty of functions but missing the obvious function of a programme reminder on the menu’s. It will only programme for future events if it is mated to a usb hdd which (panasonic) i think is a glaring error. Otherwise a nice little smart tv.

HD Smart LED Flat screen TV with great picture & convenient extras like catch-up TV, thanks to smart features.

Wanted to replace tv in our kitchen and chose this. Have always had panasonic tvs which i find reliable and easy to set up. Struggled a bit connecting the sky magic eye but this was due to the rf channel on our sky box being set at 69 (this tv only allows 68 analogue channels) which i changed to 68 and it now picks up sky on the analogue channel 68. Can now watch my netflix, digital and amazon channels whilst cooking whilst husband can watch his football on the main tv.

Excellent tv, good value, good picture and sound would recommend.

Excellent little tv that we use in a small room and in our caravan.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Never had a smart tv before, will never buy any other kind now.

The television set arrived days earlier, which was a pleasant surprise. One bug bear is registering the purchase online was problematic and the eligibility for a lumix camera was pass its deadline.

But the accompanying “manual” is very poor and unhelpful.

5 pm and took 25 min to set up including internet , great little set for my spare bedroom for visitors and up to now a great set and i’m very pleased with it as i ordered one last week and when i got it was not a smart tv even though it said it was so i sent it back ,this one is fine.

This is a good quality television set with the many additional features offered by internet accessibility. Installation and set up were straightforward. Delivery was made well ahead of the promised date.

I purchased this panasonic tv for our small lounge and have to say it is a great set. Picture quality is good and it features a wide range of smart apps for viewing services such as youtube, amazon, etc. Wifi enabled this is an easy to use and good quality tv. Recommended for those who need a 32″ set.

Yes more expensive than other brands but you get what you pay for.

Great extra choice of TV & films at your fingertips –

Really pleased with this tv – it was so easy to set up. The sound and picture quality are excellent and the menus easy to navigate and understand. I bought this to replace an older flat-screen (which did not have the smart app features) and it is perfect for everything i need.

Excellent little tv picked up all standard hd channels with clear picture really happy with it.

Very good product, nice sound good quality picture.

The TV will prompt you to connect itself to your broadband when you first set it up.

Great tv very pleased with picture and ease of set up etc. What is not obvious until your tv arrives is that it is designed for table top use. Does not have the four sockets to take a wall mount, only two of the holes have threaded sockets for vesa type mount.

Superb, nothing else needs to be said regarding this product.

This tv was purchased to replace two 19 inch panasonic units — which were both purchased at the same time and both failed at the same time with the same fault. I suspect that these sets had a built-in self-destructive mechanism and as such i now have reservations about buying any more panasonic tvs.

  1. I was a bit worried about buying this tv, as the which?. Reviews said the sound was very poor. It may be, to an audiophile expert with good ears and test meters, but my wife and i are very happy with it, it sounds ok to us. Freeview play is good when you miss a program.

    1. This i love, a tv with good sound, so many sound real tinny. I got it to take it with me on my travels and this 24″ fits neatly behind my driving seat. Mainly i bought it for the built in media player (for videos on a small hard drive), but i also have a small dvd player that i can use too (connected via an hdmi lead).
