First-rate picture quality and smart connectivity from a top brand make the Panasonic TX-24DS500B a small TV that thinks big.

Adaptive Backlight Dimming

The Panasonic TX-24DS500B uses a top quality LED screen with Adaptive Backlight Dimming. This improves the contrast to give you a natural and true-to-life picture quality.

400 Hz BMR for a crisp response
The Panasonic TX-24DS500B also uses a 400 Hz BMR (Backlight Motion rate) panel for a super-crisp motion response. This means that when watching action movies or sport, the TX24DS500B has the speed and clarity to keep up with the action without motion blur.

Freetime via Wi-Fi built-in
The Panasonic TX-24DS500B has Freetime built-in, which lets you scroll back through TV listings and watch programmes from catch-up services, such as BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5 without having to open specific applications (you'll need a broadband internet connection).

Smart connectivity
When it comes to connecting up, this 24 inch TV has got everything you'd expect from a modern smart TV. Smart connectivity brings together a host of features that make this much more than 'just' a TV, letting you stream video, photos and music from another source, such as your PC, via DLNA.

Built-in apps, WI-Fi and USB
Use the app-based browser to view shopping based functions, social media apps and catch-up TV channels. There is also a web browser, letting you surf the web on the big screen via either Ethernet or built-in Wi-Fi. A USB interface lets you enjoy music from many different file types via the dedicated media player.

Swipe and Share, plus My Home Screen
The TX24DS500B comes with Swipe and Share, which via the Panasonic app on your smartphone enables you to stream pictures, videos and music to the TV, wirelessly. My Home Screen allows different users to personalise the home screen.

Spacious sound
For a slim TV, the Panasonic TX-24DS500B has good sound quality. The built-in 20W amplifier gives full-bodied sound, while V-Audio produces a more spacious effect. There's an optical digital audio output allowing easy connection to a soundbar/base for much improved sound.

A fully featured TV that just happens to be small, the Panasonic TX-24DS500B makes viewing in a smaller room compromise free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tv for a bedroom or den Bought this tv because it was the best at the price, good pic quality and easy to set up. Downside is, it does take a few seconds to compile the tv listing and programming. Overall though great for the price for a second tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV for the price Very pleased with the picture and build quality of this TV. Sound it quite tinny but ok for a bedroom TV. Customisable home screen is good, apps work well enough but the set is a bit laggy when opening certain apps and the TV guide. Overall a decent TV with great quality picture for the price. Service at Richer sounds first class as ever with knowledgeable and helpful staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a competitive price We looked at several 24 inch smart TVs for our bedroom. The Panasonic had all the features we were looking for at a competitive price. We needed both digital and analogue tuners so that we could watch sky in our bedroom. We also wanted access to catch up services and a sleep timer. This tv was very easy to set up and find all the features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is excellent for the price I paid I purchased this for my bedroom - fits nicely on a TV bracket. The picture and sound quality is great for what I need. Easy to set up and the remote is simple to use too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value product. This TV has almost too many features. Easy to install and set up. Great picture and sound. One thing to be aware of is that the power socket is very close to the mounting point for a wall bracket so make sure you get a compatible one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality pic from a small screen We were looking for a smaller smart TV to fit into a particular space, and tbh this was the only 27-inch screen that Richer Sounds had in the shop. We've bought Samsungs in the past so a switch to Panasonic means we've lost some of the familiarity e.g. with the way their smart hub works. TV was very easy to set up and use, has a good clear picture. Sound on a TV this small (or on any TV for that matter) is a bit rubbish, but for what we wanted we weren't looking for a cinema type experience. Much prefer the Samsung hub to the Apps on this Viera, but that could just be because we're not used to them. For example when trying to watch Catch up TV, while the app for BBC iPlayer is pre-loaded, I can't seem to find where to load an ITV or Channel 4 player. I'm sure there's a way, I just can't find it. I'll take a look at the built-in Freetime service soon, which should get round this. If you're looking for a smaller TV, would certainly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good TV for bedroom Good product. Guide takes too long to load. Instructions not very explicit. Took me a long time to find out how to watch catch-up on ITV.
