Panasonic Viera TX-39AS600 LED HD 1080p Smart TV, 39", Freeview HD with freetime, Silver

Product information

The Panasonic AS600 LED TV brings Full HD movies and HD programming to your living room. It’s Smart too and comes ready to connect to catch up TV, apps and games wirelessly. The dual core processor handles all of this with ease, giving you the power to switch between functions without lag.

Full HD quality
The edge-lit LED screen is large enough for the living room, yet slimline enough to tuck away in a bedroom or study. Dazzling 1080p Full HD makes all of your media shine, and with Freeview HD even your day-to-day TV watching will benefit from crystal clear image quality.

Freetime TV
With you can take advantage of roll back TV for the past week, as well as enjoy access to a programme guide that displays catch up services like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5.

Smoother picture
A simulated 100Hz refresh rate makes sport, games, films and other fast moving action glide across the screen without judder. Everything else benefits too with more lifelike motion in everything you watch.

Wi-Fi & apps
Enjoy built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and lots of content through Panasonic's Viera Connect service. Even without a wireless router, the handy ethernet port means that getting online through a wired connection is quick and easy.

More control
Take full control over your media by turning your smartphone or tablet into a fully featured remote control.

Made to connect
Spend less time juggling connections and more time enjoying your favourite media. three HDMI sockets, two USB ports and a SCART interface make this TV a true media hub so you can hook up Blu-ray players, satellite receivers and games consoles with ease.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Frontrunner of its kind This model replaced a 26inch Panasonic so was a bit concerned about how big it might look but it fitted in well - the thin bevel helped. Unpacking and fitting the stand was straightforward. Connecting to the internet was simple and the written and audio guide covered most things. Can download a 180 page booklet but found the Panasonic channel on Youtube really good for telling you how to connect things like a Wii Fit and how to set up Home screens. Viewing angle was good but front face on is the best seat. Others have mentioned the limited choice of apps - most of these seemed to be American but BBc i-player was there. Skype will only seem to connect if you buy a Panasonic webcam so that aspect was a bit disappointing. Twitter/Facebook OK but you do not get full functionality - can only read and post basic messages (no photos). Swipe and share really good for photos but background music a bit annoying. The MyCloud facility is a bit superflous - there are other ways of contacting and sharing files out there. USB connections could be a bit better sited (e.g. on the bevel like PCs). Have not really started to play with the settings. Can forget this is a TV and focus on the Smart side of it but at the end of the day it really does it's job with a clear sharp picture (full HD), decent sound and it looks really good to boot. 09 December 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by beware Purchased in August. Picture turned pastel green all over after 30 days and would not reset. Taken away for a week - not repairable, but JL replaced ( very good relationship with them ) this week. When working excellent picture, however this one similar to another reviewer loses its internet connection everytime tv is switched off. Thus have to reset to shipping condition to reconnect as unable to reconnect via the menu button. Again this is with BT homehub 4 . So please beware if you wish to watch anything quickly on the "freetime". !! 17 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Procuct Very pleased with my Panasonic 39" tv just delivered. This replaced a Samsung 40" which I purchased from J.L within the last month and would not recommend as the sound and vision kept going out of sync .. True to their promise, John Lewis replaced this with the Panasonic 39 delivered and set up today. Full marks to their delivery team who set it up and hid all the wiring in the stand for that purpose. The picture, sound and colour cannot be faulted. Would recommend this make to anyone. 23 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A television worth considering. I am delighted with this television. The pictures are very clear. The original dilemma was whether a 40" screen would look too big in the room. But it looks just right in the room that is 10'x12'. I would recommend this television. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just fabulous Had this t.vfor 5 eeks or so and have found it absolutely great. Good picture quality (10 out of 10). Very easy to set up looks good and up to now very happy with the product. Thr delivery service was excellent also. I would reccomend this t.v. to any one. 02 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good once you know how to work it Delivered on time, with a phonecall from the delivery man 30 minutes before delivery. Purchased this TV after a lot of research and generally it is a good TV. Issues are: - No user guide with TV (189 page version online which is not hugely helpful either) - Very hard to set up - refused to connect to BT homehub 4 via WiFi but connected via cable (BT did not know why) - needed updated before it would allow Freetime to work. Also wasn't automatically set up with Freetime on, after updating go to Menu > Setup > Display Settings > Banner and TV Guide Selection, and then change it from 'Panasonic' to 'Freetime'. - Freetime isn't all programmes, only around 10 per day. - No 4OD or ITV player, but BBC iPlayer is great. I've now had it over a week and it is finally fully working through trial & error. Good picture, OK sound 26 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent TV Bought this to replace our older 32" Panasonic Viera TV which was handed over to our son. Well pleased with the quality and user interface. It's good to now get HD and FreeTime. The sound quality is fine for normal viewing and a soundbar is not therefore a necessary adjunct (although I have the sound output through my hifi for a big movie sound when desired). A couple of cautions, though : 1) Only BBC iPlayer is available on demand at present, i.e. no 4oD, ITV Player or Demand 5, although the past 7 days' programmes of those channels are accessible with FreeTime 2) The wall mounting bolt spacing has changed from the earlier Viera TVs, so my mounting arm needed mods to fit it 3) the screen is very sharp and to enhance this they have made the surface much more reflective which can cause some nuisance from reflected lights in the evening Overall : well impressed. 07 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb product from Panasonic The picture quality is top notch and in HD its WOW!! Where we live there are only 5 channels available in HD - some areas have 12 - and we don't always remember to tune in to the HD channel. There is an improvement in picture quality watching DVD's and is really an improvement on the Panasonic we had before. We have connected the TV to the internet, an easy thing to do, and are really pleased with the apps and channels on offer. The "Freetime" function allows you to "roll-back" and watch a programme you missed or forgot to record. Brilliant!!! You need a Viera recorder to connect to and take full advantage of the linked controls. Some of the controls are tricky and we sometimes end up watching programmes through the HDD unit without realising it. This causes a small issue when using the remote the next time. The TV has a wealth of settings for you to play with and we particularly like the sound leveller. Fantastic when the adverts come on!! All in all a brilliant product and one we have no hesitation in recommending. 30 July 2014
