Summary: This TV is great...if you want a nice TV for 2 years. I bought mine 2 years and two month ago and now has horizontal lines on the entire screen. It is insane that one has to buy a new TV every 2 years. No more Panasonic!!!!
Summary: We love this TV! :-) The "smart" features work really well. It was easy to set up. The remote works like a charm. The picture is great, BUT sometimes it's a little tougher to see things clearly when the show films at night. (For example, during episodes of Falling Skies, the night scenes may be tougher to see clearly.) I see another reviewer suggests changing the mode to "light" for dark scenes, so I'll have to give that a try.
Summary: After having this TV for a year i can Say most times I use it I still Say "This TV is Awesome" Now I have put a 5 year warranty on Mine, Because I like to buy Quality and Expect it to Last. It is Insurance . We still have the Panasonic LCD TV I bought 10 years ago, which still works well. ( The TV we have is in the DAWN OF THE DEAD MOvie in the Electronics Store) Pros 1. It has given life to Old Dvds 2.
vierria 47 Panasonic quality and durability the best choice

Summary: ez set up ,larger than we knew but terrific depth. Cant wait to view the dvds we ordered.good sound and heavy bottom. we used a stand not a wall mount . but thin enough for that if needed. shades fines and hues nice. Thanks Amazon.
Summary: Since new this TV has had problems maintaining a stable WiFi connection with my network. Obtaining software upgrades is difficult. Using Netflix or any other web application is hopeless. Tested many options. All other laptops, TV, and DVD players in home work fine with my current WiFi network. My final solution involved attaching a Samsung Blu-ray player to the Panasonic LCD TC-L47ET5 TV and using it to view Netflix and other web applications.
Summary: We were blown away at the clarity of the picture on this smart TV. I compared the Panasonic Viera to several others I saw at Sam's. The Viera, in my opinion came out on top. Glad I purchased it!
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS TV! I purchased this TV brand new from Amazon and was incredibly excited to upgrade my home television experience. At first everything was great however as they say the true test of a company is how they ha doe an issue. My TV recently stopped working (vertical white lines on the screen and choppy video playback); I figured no big deal it is still covered under warranty must be one defective unit.
Summary: UPDATE: This review is for the 42", but most of the following should apply to the 47" model as well. I narrowed my options down to Samsung and Panasonic based on all the reviews I read over the past several months and decided to go with the Panasonic, primarily because of the price and the fact that it came with four pairs of 3D glasses. All I can say is wow! This television has awesome picture quality compared to my 40" Samsung and 32" LG TVs.
Summary: Great TV. I was extremely pissed off at first because my remote was not responding at all. Then I realized that my soundbar was blocking the bottom frame of the TV where it receives the remote's signal. This TV rests very low to the surface, maybe only 2-3 inches, make sure you don't block the front so that you can receive a good signal for your report. The color is great. This was one of the biggest worries for me but I am satisfied with it. The wifi is very quick.
