Summary: Started out as an impressive TV for the money, however, it has suffered a complete power failure 22 days after the warranty has expired. I will not purchase another Panasonic product. A quality product should last well past it's warranty period.
Panasonic Viera TC-42LD24" LED-backlit LCD Television
7 April 2011
Summary: I love this tv period. The picture is bright & clear with outstanding colors. Motion is smooth with no blockiness and I only have it connected with the component video since my Comcast cable box does not have a HDMI port. The 42" is perfect for my living room and the tv is a charcoal and gray color which matched my old Sony tv stand. I hope it lasts a long time !
Summary: To begin with I am a Panasonic fan based on several good experiences. I have both 50" and 54" plasma sets that are brilliant. I also have several Panasonic Blu-ray players and all have been trouble free. My daughter also has a 32" LCD Panasonic (720P) with iPod connect which also works great. I bought this TV because I wanted to try an LED TV because they are very thin and are efficient. I have the TV hung on the wall in our guest bedroom - it looks great.
Summary: I've had this TV for 2 days now. On the day it was delivered I had it setup and it seemed to work fine. There is an Eco setting that turns the TV off after 3 hours of inactivity which worked fine. I fell asleep with the TV on and it was off when I awoke in the morning as expected. The next day I customized the picture setup (brightness, contrast, etc.). Now the TV screen goes blank after about 10 minutes. No sound, no video, nothing.
Summary: The television is going anywhere from $1900 to $700 depending on where you shop. I bought it for my son for mostly movies, television (Football), and XBOX gaming (Madden Football). I saw it in the store (Costco-$699) along side all the other LCD screens and though the picture is glossy it stood out from the masses of LG, Samsung, Sony, etc.
Summary: This is our fourth HD big screen. We have a Panny 37" circa 2005 and two new 2010 Sony 46" Bravia w motion control. We picked up this set for a second home in Florida. Pros: Excellent picture at 480, 720, 1080 w Comcast. Lots of brightness in a sunny room. Although it has a gloss screen, reflections don't seem to be the problem I was expecting. Very thin profile. Simple menus and sets up easy. Three HDMI inputs are a plus. Swivel is nice.
