PanasonicTX-40C300B40inchWidescreenFullHD1080pLEDTV Deals : Great value TV but the sound is a bit tinny

Great picture, poor sound which is to be expected. Great picture, poor sound which is to be expected considering the size and thinness of the tv. When i tried to register the product on the panasonic website (my panasonic) it would not recognise the model no: tx-24c300b at all. This confirms that the tv is made under licence and i doubt if panasonic would provide much support. It was a lightening deal and i am delighted with it for the money.

This is a great tv for the money. This is a great tv for the money. No good if you are looking for a smart tv to work with the internet as it does not have that functionality, but if you are looking for a basic tv with excellent picture quality which is user friendly, then this panasonic is first class. Very easy set-up as you just plug it in and follow the very easy on screen guide and it does the rest. Slight time delay when using the prog guide as it takes a few seconds to bring-up the information, but that isn’t a big deal. For the price (£269 paid) i cannot fault it and would certainly recommend this tv.

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. Here are the specifications for the Panasonic TX-40C300B 40 inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LED TV:

  • Enter your model number
    above to make sure this fits.
  • High contrast for deep blacks, bright whites and vivid colours
  • Media player – plug a USB memory stick and enjoy content on the vivid Viera screen
  • Low power consumption using LED power saving
  • 2.1 channel system (200 W) speaker for dynamic and deep bass sound for an immersive viewing experience
  • Pair up with Bluetooth or use the NFC touch point

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.

Very easy to set up and the stand was easy to put on. Excellent picture, sound ok for a bedroom for which it was purchased. Good price, same tv is £149 at tesco. Overall i am very pleased with my purchase.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good TV at a good price
  • looks great but the sound is week week week
  • easy enough to set up
  • Great value TV but the sound is a bit tinny
  • You get what you pay for.
  • An average TV, OK for this price point but nothing special

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.

Very good picture – sound not so good. The picture is up to the usual high standard for panasonic. The screen is thin, so do not expect wow sound from the integrated speakers. This set needs external speakers if you wish to fully enjoy hd transmissions and dvds. It could me but the user interface on the remote control is long winded, especially if you are trying to adjust picture and sound settings. My other panasonics are easier. In all not 5 stars, so only 4.

    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.

    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.
    1. Ideal for here in my home office. Controls described in the manual as on the monitor are conspicuous by there absencepicture quality is fabsound quality is poor and i haven’t found if any speakers will fit it.
