Unusually for Panasonic, this is an LED set, and while not up there with its best plasmas, it's still very good. This isn't just any old LED screen – this is an IPS LED screen. The main benefit is better off-axis viewing, so your mates can get a good view of the action from wherever they're sitting.&nbsp;</p> <p>Games and sport are handled competently thanks to solid motion processing and vibrant colours, and both Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners product excellent images.&nbsp;</p> <p>Compared to the very best though, it's missing a smidgen of detail and sense of depth. And while 3D performance is much improved over past efforts, you'll have to fork out about £80 each for the new-look-active-shutter glasses.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Panasonic TX-L47DT50 review – motion  </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The screen shows 200 frames a second, like most new TVs, but the backlight blinks 8 times each second, too.
