    I've seen a few reviews which mention that the B7 is prone to judder/stutter when displaying 1080i content (eg. from Freeview), yet other reviews (eg. Which? magazine) comment that the motion performance is very good.

    Is this something which has now been fixed with a firmware update, and was only evident in very early reviews of this TV?

    It was deinterlacing side effects if I remember correctly. I think I read it had been fixed, but god knows where and when I read it.
    Ah, found it. Go to 11 minutes in the video. The whole thing is worth watching really.

    Excellent thanks.

    The posterisation at low light levels still looked very bad, even after the firmware update. Maybe the EZ952 would be better in that respect?

    No idea.
    The 2018 Panasonics would be on my shortlist if I was buying now, but I have no plans to do that.
    I’m sticking with the C7 for the foreseeable future. It hasn’t skipped a beat for me.
    Hasn’t the 952 got an unresolved stuttering bug or something?
    Nothing’s perfect.
