Excerpt: With the dropping prices of flat panel TVs, Panasonic is still leading the market with not only the top technology Plasma, as well as LCD and LED. Provided U series is on the low end, the panel is still the same as the S series and very reliable minus all the extra do-hikkies like wireless, internet etc. That is what the Blu-Ray and other prephirels are for. 42" is a good size TV in this century whereas 27" used to be the norm for tube TVs.
Excerpt: This tv is great. Being a Plasma TV the viewing angles are much better than LCD. And Panasonic had very little image retention. For a budget this is the one to buy! The warranty and customer service of this TV are very good.
Excerpt: So the other day, i was walking my dog at the dog park which he loves to go to every other tuesday of the month of january and after his potty break, you know, the one he takes before trying to sniff around for a mate, i made the desicion the grover and I should be watching our favorite shows in hd.
Excerpt: After saving for what seemed like a lifetime, my husband and I purchased this television for Christmas as a family gift. It hangs over our fireplace and looks great. The remote was easy to navigate and set up was straight forward. We had no issues getting it hung on the wall (with a bracket purchased seperatly) or connected to our other components. The picture is amazingly clear, even without the HD package that our cable company offers.
Excerpt: Alright, first off. I usually like bigger tvs for watching movies, and just basic tv. But I'm also a gamer (ps3, xbox 360) and generally its actually easier to play games on smaller tvs. When I purchased the Panasonic 42 inch, I was blown away, I tried it out while watching a movie, and the screen was crisp. then I tried it out with hooking up my Playstation 3, and was even more blown away!
Excerpt: So I was in need of a new TV and I heard that Panasonic tvs were really good so I decided to get one. After hours upon hours upon hours, i finally decided to settle down with this TV. At first, I was pretty nervous because i had heard that HDTVs usually have low sounds but I figured I would get over it and eventually, I did. I hooked up everything and the picture was AMAZING. It was crystal clear.
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: 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. Easy set up, however it does take a bit of tweaking and work to get the color settings right. Love how you can change the settings for each input. The ability to adjust the "Motion Pro 4" feature/processor is great and fairly easy.
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. Lets be honest. The biggest issue that people need to be concerned about when making TV purchases needs to the the picture quality.
Here is the low down on this TV, what you absolutely need to know before purchasing.

Summary: 1. Picture is fantastic, amazing colors, no issues with brightness, solid blacks. 2. Absolutely no clouding or back light uniformity issues that SO MANY other LCD and LED TV's have. The screen is perfect from this standpoint. 3. IPS panel, what more can one say, these are best LCD panels on the market which give you a better picture and much wider viewing angle without much loss of brightness or color. 4.
