Panasonic Vierra LCD TV Buying Experience

I was planning for an entry level 32 inch LCD TV to replace the 29 inch LG CRT TV in my living room. I was not a brand conscious person. I was comfortable with all reputed brand’s except moserbaer, Videocon, godrej, sansui etc.

LG and Samsung were best ideas. I asked my cousin to bring a 32 inch Samsung LCD TV from Dubai. It costs 1450 dirhams there. Works out to less than Rs 20000 .He agreed to bring one in November 2010.

I wanted to exchange my old semiautomatic Videocon washing machine with a fully automatic one during the onam promotions in august 2010.So I visited a discount shop ten kilometers near to my village. The name of the shop was ATTINKARA ELECTRONICS, Pandalam. I selected an LG Fully Automatic Washing machine but the piece there was sold out. They promised to deliver as soon as stock arrives the next day.

I just enquired about LCD TVs and the salesman introduced me to Panasonic Viera LCD TV. It was not loaded with lot of features. I saw a demo. I liked the TV and bought it and canceled the Samsung.Honestly I am new to LCD TV. So I may not be able to rate it with respect to other tvs in the market. But watching DVDs on Panasonic Viera is Fun.

  • Video Looks good.
  • HD Ready TV.
  • I am guessing i can view HD video by connecting my sony vaio which plays out bluray discs to the tv as a projector.I am having Standard Definition DTH only and i don't have a Bluray disc player.
  • I can connect the TV to my PC like I connect an external projector to it.
  • My philips dvd player and the tv team up and delivers near theatre experience.
  • Two A/V Ports, RGB connection, Mic out etc and other standard things.
  • Look is stylish.
  • Wall mountable.

NO HDMI. How will you view HD Video without HDMI?
TV is HD Ready ..IT Is not FullHD.
Speakers are normal quality only.
When mounted on wall,it becomes difficult to plug the PC Cable. So you should have a dedicated PC Video Cable.

MRP 29900………
Got some cash discount and a stylish during the onam FEstical Season Offer…….. :)

I use a SUNDIRECT DTH Service to power the Panasonic Viera.

My old LG 29 inch LCD TV was bought in 2007 for Rs 14500.It was a good TV having subwoofers in it. The Panasonic Viera will be replacing the LG TV. After couple of days a technician from Panasonic came and disassembled the mounting stand and mounted it on the Wall. He missed to tweak and adjust the brightness, sharpness and other calibration settings.

LCD TV Alternative – I Call IT Viewsonic  Vision

Since I was using Pinnacle PCTV on my Athlon XP PC during my college days.I had something in my mind positive about TV Tuner Cards. It was an internal TV Tuner Card.I could watch TV on my PC clearly and even record video in MPEG !, MPEG2 formats.So when I was thinking of a small LCD TV in my office room, I think I could do it by integrating an LCD Monitor and an External TV Tuner Card.Back in 2008, LCD TVs were costly.A 19 inch LCD TV was selling at Rs 15000.So I bought a Viewsonic  17 inch TFT LCD monitor and a LUMAX External TV Tuner Box for LCD. I don’t remember the exact cost.





I had a LABTECH USA 2003 model 2.1 speaker system for the lively sound. It was lying there vacant after my Athlon XP PC went bad.

So Total Cost of the LCD Monitor TV was Rs 9500.Now I feel it was a bad idea. Because a TV is a TV and such emulations will always lack some perfection. Lot of wires make it a mess. I use a Reliance Big TV DTH connection to power the TV.It is still working fine in the third year but looks definitely bad in my room .I am watching news using this TV while working online.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
