Summary: first 1080p tv. bought from bestbuy so as expected we paid about $80 more from what is the listed price here on amazon. out of the box, tv looks ok. i've seen lots of tv's with prettier bezel than this from other brands. but not really a big deal.
Summary: I got this to replace a similiar hitachi that I had for just a few days. The hitachi had backlighting issues where the top corners had the flashlight effect and it was very annoying during dark scenes. The hitachi did have a beautiful picture other than this one issue.
Summary: We think that this tv is a great deal. The hd picture is great and the standard picture is better than expected. There was no trouble with the color as other stated in their reviews. Simply put I think that you could do a lot worse than buy one of these. Oh,one other thing, there are not many 42in.
Summary: This tv is a good bargain for the money. The hd reception is solid and the speakers are decent. If you are going from a larger tv to a smaller one, you may have some dissatisfaction but, it's not the fault of Panasonic.
Summary: I replaced a 34 inch CRT TV with the 42 inch Panasonic model. Interestingly enough, because of the variety in programming format, I often end up watching a raster that is smaller and sometimes much smaller than that. Now-a-days, it's buy big, get the same.
Summary: I like to state in my reviews that I am no expert. I am not a so called expert when it comes to AV equipment. However, I am well versed in technology and try to keep up with tech aspects. As such, I think my review would be suited for regular folks trying to get the best bang for their buck.
Summary: Value is great on this one. Got the "Gold Box" deal and this set fit perfectly for the need. Have it in a secondary room to be used for gaming, watching Blu rays and sporting events. User interface is great.
Good TV - Good Quality - but be aware of "soap opera effect" on LCD TVs
20 January 2011
Summary: I have only had the TV for a day, but so far I have been happy with it. This is my first purchase of a larger LCD TV - my prior purchase was a 1080P 50" Plasma, also from Panasonic which I have been extremely pleased with. The picture quality on this TV is pretty good.
