Panasonic Smart Viera Platform 2013 User Review

  • Reggienows
    No reminders
    Review of Panasonic Smart Viera Platform 2013 Smart TV System by Reggienows, Nov 15, 2013.
    The EPG is a big step backwards on the ET6/ET60/ET61 range. It does not allow reminders to be set.
    You can look for programmes 7 days ahead but can't set a reminder.
    If a TV channel advertises an upcoming programme you can't set a reminder.
    You can't plan your night's viewing and set reminders.
    If reminders are important to you need to choose another brand.
    Panasonic currently do not intend to correct this flaw for existing customers.
    This item was purchased for £799 from currys in 2013. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Slim

    Cons

    • EPG
    • Lack of on demand services for ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5
    • Smart features difficult to use. The web browser and other apps rely on the on-screen keyboard which is difficult to use. Skype isn't available unless the optional cam/mike is purchased.
    • Only 3 HDMI sockets. All the smart/media features are better done on a laptop and display on screen via an HDMI lead. Panasonic have cut down on HDMI sockets.
