Summary: This tv was purchased to replace a 1080i Samsung Slimfit 30 inch set. I did a lot of research and decided that this Panasonic TC-L39EM60 was the TV for me. I mainly watch cable HD broadcasts and have a lot of movies in digital format MP4(M4V). Panasonic is the only manufacturer I've found whose built in media player will play my files and MAN DOES IT PLAY THEM. The tv is 1080p native but will play other resolutions 1080i, 720p, 480i to name a few.
Summary: We purchased this tv to replace a 7 year old Panasonic TC-26LX50. We had to find a tv with an overall width of less than 35.5" which is the width of our entertainment center. It is a perfect fit!. We used HDMI cables to connect the the tv to the cable box and our Panasonic DMP-BD75 bluray player. The setup for the tv took less than a minute! The picture is , as my wife said, extremely lifelike.
