PanasonicTX-40C300B40inchFullHD1080pLEDTV Review : Needed help to get started.

Not bad enough to warrant the faff of returning the whole. Perfectly acceptable performance for the price, but on unpacking the set i found a scratch on the ‘piano-gloss’ base which had clearly been there before the protective film was applied. Not bad enough to warrant the faff of returning the whole set but it demonstrates poor quality control.

Good quality, not like some cheap use once broken. Spot on, good quality, not like some cheap use once broken after one use products, easy to use/setup, great picture as well as this we purchased for our caravan, will buy another very soon as upgraded new caravan and will need another for the bedroom, very compact pice of kit, light and as before great pic,.

An excellent tv with a high quality picture. But the sound quality was very poor. I have bt vision with mine, and with both volume controls on maximum, i still had trouble hearing it. I purchased a soundbar, which has made all the difference.

Comments from buyers

“Great for the price., Great picture, poor sound which is to be expected , Not bad enough to warrant the faff of returning the whole , Good value for money., Amazing! I love it., first class throughout”

Needed help to get started. . My complaint is that i had a hard time figuring out what cable goes where. I wish instructions were aimed at dummies. After reading the reviews for this i thought it would be a doddle to get it working. I had to call my son to help me. Otherwise i am pleased with it.

The first one arrived and made a high pitched whine which i beleive was from a fan. That cured itself over time. A replacement has numrous verticle lines on the picture and is being returned. The first one will be retained and seems to work fine.

Good picture quality and a good set of inputs. Used with an xbox and is flawless. Nice thin bezel but unfortunately the base and bezel are ‘piano black’ which mean it is really glossy which always looks dirty/dusty. Apart from this the remote is simple and not overly large with a ridiculous amount of buttons that you would never use like some sony tv’s. What can i say simple and excellent quality and cheap.

  1. I decided it was way past time to upgrade to a flat screen tv and as the price was right on this model chose to ignore a lot of the reviews posted, which i’m usually a stickler for. Never having had a flat screen anyway i had nothing to compare it to and am consequently delighted with the purchase. I certainly can’t hear any tinniness to the sound which seems to be a major criticism among the reviews. If like me you’re new to the flat screen market, if the price is right i don’t think you’ll regret this ‘entry level’ model.
    1. Ok tv for the price, sound could be better but overall im happy with it and would recommend.

    Sound is terrible, picture isn’t too bad. Sound is terrible, picture isn’t too bad. Good luck connecting it to a virgin remote. Definitely something other than a panasonic.

    Good but not brilliant this tv is slow to warm up and sound is slightly muffled.
    1. Pros- great picture – deep, convincing blacks and rich bold colour- looks great as a piece of kit – far more expensive looking than price would suggest- easy to set up and install. Unlike other reviewers i am a fan of the smaller remotecons:- as mentioned before, the speakers do the job but won’t blow you away either figuratively or literally. Easily remedied by buying a sound bar or speaker system, which given the price of the tv doesn’t seem so unfair- only two hdmi, not a problem for us as we only have the virgin media box. + a games console and we would be full but then what more would you need?. Can’t imagine many people are saturating the hdmi capabilities of this tvoverall: great value for money with an overall t image that matches much more expensive rivals. Sound isn’t great but can easily be improved.
      1. This is an excellent tv for your sitting room – i am well qualified to say this because, well, i like watching tv. But really this is incredibly good value for money, your relatives won’t know you’re a cheapo when they see it. The only complaint i have is that the sound isn’t amazing.
  5. The menus are easy to scroll through and the setup was fine. The tv itself is ok, the menus are easy to scroll through and the setup was fine. My only issue is, the sounds it makes when it gets hot as it must be made out of cheap plastic it is constantly making a cracking sound.

    It’s a great tv for the price but misleading as others have. It’s a great tv for the price but misleading as others have said it’s a vestel tv with a pansonic badge on the front. I wouldn’t recommend this tv as the sound is utterly terrible. But the quality of the screen is quite good. -pros -picture quality is okay for the price-cons-sound quality is absolutely rubbish. For people having trouble linking their sky remote to the tvsearchpanasonic tx-40c300b vestel and the first or and second result. The code for volume is 1117.
