Summary: It's a great TV What I love: Colors look amazing, and reads as covering %100 of sRGB spectrum. (as measured by my Wifes Spyder4Pro) after turning off all the Gimmick settings it has a great refresh speed for a TV. HDMI, DVI (with HDMI adaptor), and VGA all work with my new laptop and tablet.
Summary: I'm going to start this review by saying I have never had a newer flat screen/HD TV so I can't really compare it to other newer TVs. We are still using the old style TVs in my house that are 10+ years old. The 42in Panasonic VIERA TC-L42ET5 was purchased by my household to replace a 25 year old TV.
Summary: This tv was a little better than the seven inch. It came with a second antenna which is why a managed to get one clear channel on it. I only use it every now and then when I'm waiting in my car for an appointment or something.
Summary: Over the last 3 months I bought 2 HD TV's: The Samsung PN51E550 51-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Slim Plasma HDTV (Black) by Samsung (Feb 20, 2012) that came with 2 pairs of 3D glasses from HHGREGG and this one the Panasonic VIERA TC-L42ET5 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Full HD IPS LED-LCD TV with 4 Pairs of...
Great as a TV; the computer aspects are a little off

Summary: This TV looks great and sounds great, and its functions are easy to use. I appreciate greatly that it has built-in wireless and interfaces well with Netflix, Amazon, etc. It also *seems* to accept things like USB flash drives; however, what it does not accept are USB DVD players, at least, not in...
Summary: First of all, I am very happy this TV, and thank you Amazon for a safely packed package. I have seen Samsung, Sony TV, and this pany is comparable to these brands. This display is beautiful, I have not experience any back-light problem. View angles works, 3D feature is pleasant.
Summary: This Viera TC-L42ET5 replaced a 2007 40" Samsung that was plagued with faulty capacitors (was reimbursed by Samsung) and a burned out panel (not covered by Samsung). This set is LED and 120 refresh which makes it a world apart from the old Samsung.
Excellent 3D LCD "Smart" TV and A Great Value Too!

Summary: Right out of the box this TV looked pretty good. With only a few adjustments the picture quality was excellent. Clear and vibrant colors with decent black level...not quite the intensity of my plasma TV. Also, very good motion viewing...again, not as clear as my plasma TV.
Summary: I have had this model for a month now - 42ET5 - the TV build is very nice - slim - easy to set up - like most TV's - Stand does not swivel - if any need that feature - i added a swivel stand under the TV and it swivels 360 degrees now - wireless internet was easy to set up - i wouldnt bother with...
