This cost £1000 when new and that was about 10 years ago.. and I have to say it but the CRT outperforms many HD Tv sets you see nowadays, picture and sound as good as the day it was installed. Never any problems. Only down side is it weighs a ton and takes up a lot of space.. we would get much more room with a wall mounted 40 " but because the pictures is so good loathe to part with it yet.. it will probably still be here in another 10 years.

The Panasonic TX32-PD30 is by far the best CRT television ever made. After 5 years of constant use the picture and sound quality are faultless.
With 4 Scart Sockets, Component, S-Video and Video Inputs I have never run out of connectivity options.
The picture in picture feature is still fantastic as is piture setup facility itself.
All in all, I will not upgrade to Plasma/LED until this one dies.
To be honest, I hope it lasts forever. (read more)

Was expensive at the time of purchase, but was the only 32inch we could find that was shallow enough to fit in our corner niche. Sensational looks, the best looking thing in our lounge, and has became the focal point when ever we have visitors! The picture is fantastic-way better than any HD LCD/Plasma TV out on the market today and sounds so good, we barely need the surround system on! Nice comfortable remote control too. The only thing I would grumble about would be, that it produces a... (read more)

A great TV. I read a review on here that said the guy had had three units, the first two developing annoying buzzing/resonance. He said the third was so far OK, but had a devil of a time getting Panasonic to agree the fault existed. Five other reviews said it was just a great TV.
Well, the picture is second to none, and the sound is excellent too with a good balance between bass and treble and no annoying inbalance between music and speech that you get on cheaper sets.

Purchased my Panasonic TX32PD30 from a reliable on-line shop - condition was great, although delivery took almost 3 months due to popularity of the product. However, it has a constant buzzing from the case (an issue that I have been told is "normal" for a large screen TV, which can get louder or quieter depending on positioning and time of day!), which is proving to be a little annoying for a TV costing over a thousand pounds.
The other problem is a slight "jerkiness" to the picture,... (read more)

Having spent over 2 months researching all the 32 inch Widescreen TVs on the market at all major electrical outlets by viewing all the sets on display I found the Panasonic TX-32PD30 picture quality was second to none, I was always drawn to this TV & then found myself comparing all TVs to this model. The only other TV which in my opinon come close was the Philips Pixel plus, The Pansonics colour palette is rich & vidid, The levels of detail on terrestrial TV/DVD is pin sharp, & this is what...

The Panasonic TX32PD30, in my opinion, is the smartest looking CRT TV on the market, way ahead of any Sony offering. The only one that comes close is the Toshiba one but Panasonic are supposedly a better brand aren't they?
No initial complaints, great picture, decent sound, decent features....But after 2 weeks, the picture went a bit misty white. I thought it was the aerial at first... Informed Panasonic who told me that the tube may have gone. I now await the next one to be delivered and... (read more)

Panasonic TX-32PD30 Review: My research for a new large screen TV started by looking at flat TFT screens and then Plasma screens. A trip to the local retail stores soon convinced me that the standard CRT (Cathode Ray Tubes) gives a far superior picture quality.
Next I read the specialist magazines and did some Internet research. Eventually I settled on the Panasonic TX-32PD30 which can retail for around £2,000 but I bought on the web from webelectricals.co.uk for £1,050 including... (read more)

This TV replaced my ageing & massive 33" 4:3 Toshiba TV which had become temperamental.
The Panasonic PDP30 picture quality is just staggering - especially in 833line/75HZ mode (why use it in anything else?)
There are no nasty 100HZ side effects you see with some other makes.
Feed in a good signal & sit back.
The local Panasonic dealer couldn't get enough of them - once you've seen the images on that flat screen you have to have one!
The styling looks good too; I didn't want a large border... (read more)

The Panasonic TX32PD30 widescreen tv looks superb, it sounds excellent, it connects to most systems and the picture is second to none, especially on a digital feed, in this price range. Try it and you'll love it. (read more)

For a large television, the design of this Panasonic TX-32PD30 is superb. There is not much framework involved and its whole appearance is very neat and the glass and silver coloured stand which comes with it is most attractive. The picture quality is superb and never varies. It came with a free DVD video recorder DMR-E50. The whole set up is easy to use and the DVD recorder also gives out a very good picture. I understand that this recorder is now obsolete, but as a starter, it has... (read more)

We are currently on our 4th Panasonic TX32PD30 in a month!
To cut a very long story short the first two TV's we purchased from a well know large department store both of which were physically damaged when delivered. The store told us we were being picky so what if they were scratched and dented.
Eventually got a refund and purchased the TV via another company.
Initially it was great after about 2 weeks it started buzzing and a red line appeared at the bottom of the picture. Engineer... (read more)

Initially I was very pleased with this Panasonic TX32PD30 widescreen television, the picture and sound were good, although you do seem to lose some of the picture viewing through cable. Unfortunately after about 8wks it made a loud popping noise and the screen went white, it then popped again and a odd smell issued from the set, it was broken. Panasonic shop have been very good and are bringing a new one tomorrow, hope it lasts. (read more)

After many sorties to the TV shops, I finally settled on the Panasonic TX32PD30. After 6 weeks of use, I am very satisfied with my choice. This TV is expensive but it still represents good value for money. The picture is superbly defined and provides a wonderful experience in widescreen. Sound quality is good although not up to the standard of the picture. I rate the build quality as excellent apart from the on/off button on the set which is not at all positive. Finally this TV is...

An expensive but good looking television. High quality audio and visuals. Colour quality on my set is fantastic. Very smooth picture, even close up. If you fancy a plasma or LCD TV but are not yet ready to go down that rout, the TX-32PD30 makes a great alternatvie with its unobtrusive yet stylish frame and stand. (read more)

I still think the picture on the Panasonic TX32PD30 is great - depth of colour is particularly good. It's very sharp too, though some slight processing noise is occasionally visible (never enough to bother me). Geometry is overall very good, and it has geomagnetic correction to keep the picture level.
Only problem: this is my second one that went bang. This time it stopped altogether. At this rate I could get through 130 of them befoe the 5 year warranty is up.
Fair enough,... (read more)

Overall the Panasonic TX32PD30 television set is very pleasing to watch. The combination of very sharp images, great colour and contrast made it a joy to watch - until a strange electric popping noise today and it all went strangely dark... Pity after only 3 weeks.
Other good points that swung me in favour of this set were (1) it has geomagnetic correction which the Toshiba pictureframe 32" does not, and (2)it is not quite as deep as most others so I could fit it into the space... (read more)
