Summary: I bought this TV last August. It worked fine until this August, just one week after its one year warranty. I did some research online and found in order to repair it may cost me up to 500 bucks! The TV was only 900 when I bought it and a new one now is only 600, yet the repair cost can be 500? Luckily I was able to repair it at the cost of replacing a power supply board, but a TV only lasts for one year is not a good product.
HATE THIS LEMON!!!!!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS TV!!!!!!!!! WARNING!!!!!

Summary: I bought this tv in May of 2013. Within TWO weeks it literally POPPED & FIZZLED!!! A strange smell came from it and it completely shut off. Obviously I considered this serious enough to replace this garbage. Instead it was "FIXED". Well, 2 weeks later it is having MORE problems. It shuts off and on BY ITSELF. My daughter was having a movie night with her friends and right in the middle of the movie the tv shut off and didn't come on until an hour later.
Summary: I was looking for a HD TV that would look the best when watching 420 video and non-HD TV. The plasma picture is clear, sharp, and has great colors--even when watching non-HD programming, DVDs, or streaming movies by cable. The settings are easy, but take a bit of learning and trial and error to get them right. The biggest problem has been the slight distortion that comes when filling the 42" screen with regular programing.
Summary: I read other reviews and settled on this model. I've had this for a few months and am not disappointed with my purchase. It was easy-peasy to set up with the onscreen step-by-step instructions. The only issue I have with the TV, is the power plug. If it is moved or jiggled in some way, the TV will not power up, or turn on. I have the TV set on the stand and like the swivel option.
