    I'm thinking of buying a Panasonic TX28PK3 TV from empire direct. Unfortunately, after scouring the internet and magazines for weeks I can't find any reviews or info on the set. Other than a five-minute demo from some gormless nurk in Currys I haven't anything to go on.

    Does anyone have this TV, or at least an opinion on it?

    Thanks

    As the nickname suggests I am no expert and am totally lost when some people on these forums start talking like a Star Trek manual.

    However, last week my TX28PK3 arrived from Empire Direct and I am more than happy with it. I bought a Panny video from there as well. The empire direct guy was helpful with a couple of queries I had when ordering and others on this forum have said ED are good at responding to any problems they had with their equipment.

    After I set it up I just turned both items on and watched them tune themselves in via the Panny Q-Link.

    I find the picture brilliant and even my missus who was wary having a w/screen telly thinks its great.

    The only complaint I have was that the stand erection instructions could have been better but I soon got it up.

    If you want another opinion here is what credit card Goldfish say in their 'Goldfish Guides':

    "Panasonic's budget flatscreen set has to be one of the best value TVs around at the moment. Although it does not sport a great deal in the way of features – there's no surround sound or 100Hz image processing – it does sport a flatscreen that not only looks striking but also delivers detailed, high contrast images. The set is also easy to use thanks to a simple remote control handset, and Q-Link allows a one-button record option on Q-Link enabled videos. Definitely a good buy, especially if you can find it cheaper than £750"

    After much umming and arring and a shock phone call to my girlfriend this afternoon who said do you want a new TV then, oh and you can use our house savings or credit card i've decided to order the Panny PK3.<br />How many scarts does it have by the way and have you noticed any probs without at all however minor.<br />I'll most likely ring ED when I get home from work, also did it take long for delivery?

    I have the 32PK3. At first I was pleased with it (it replaced the dreadful 36PG50) but as time has gone on I'm more and more dissatisfied. Problems include: scrolling horizontal lines on pale backgrounds on RGB; darker edges of screen where glass is thicker (noticeable eg on grass such as golf); horizontal slightly bent lines on some scenes, eg faces against a dark background; ridiculous levels of audio breakthrough on AV2 (S Vid); and out of focus centre of screen. I'm not the only one to have these problems either - there are many posters experiencing similar problems with PK sets. Mine's been in the workshop and they can't fix anything - the engineers are currently trying to get answers from Panasonic. <br />By the way there are 2 scarts (one RGB).
