Nice TV but died in under 2 years

Christopher Joseph, Amazon

  • Summary: TV was great when working.. last week I went to turn it on and the red light turned on, nothing else happened, then it shut off. Nothing I could do with Panasonic since their warranty expired. Luckily I had a Squaretrade warranty and got a full refund.

Broken

  • Summary: this is not a quality product, i would recomend the 43" samsung 720 TV, i found it for 470$, a much nicer looking TV and 1 inch larger for only 20$ extra.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Showed up in a thin cardbord box, not the safe panasonic box i expected. Was already on its stand as if it was on display at some point and had been taken off the shelf and then sent off. because of the bad packaging i discoverd a large dent in the left side of the screen, and on the left side it...

Good Price, Poor Quality

B. Hall, Amazon

  • Summary: My fiance purchased this TV at a good price, and initially we were fairly pleased. The Mhz, and motion quality were only average, and certainly never had that beautiful smooth motion most new TV's have.

GREAT TV BUT FAILED AFTER ONE MONTH

LIONLADY, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great Plasma TV for the price, picture, sound quality, and viewing angles. Unfortunately it turned itself off in the middle of a movie. I had to carry it in to the repair shop (being a 42 inch model this was not too easy) and he said he knew exactly what it is - the SC board.

7 hours of excellent plasma.. then nothing.

Johnny S, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased as a Christmas gift for the family. The TV was in use for only about 7 hours total, no more then 3 hours at time. While in the middle of a blu ray the TV went blank (no sound or picture). The red light started blinking six times. Now I have to drive 45 miles for repairs.

DOA

JOHN T., Newegg
25 May 2010
  • Summary: I was eager to see if burn in would be an issue, Panasonic and Pioneer seem to have eliminated burn in as a problem. Mine didn't survive. Hopefully yours will.. This just wasn't meant to be.
  • Pros: Price, Value. Has digital and optical audio ports built in. 2 HDMI New egg took my call and put in a claim. Always nice and friendly.
  • Cons: No VGA, workaround is to use (pc to tv) DVI to hdmi adapter cable. It was dead so couldn't comment on how it looked or if they were over-scanning cutoff/jagged edges , clear/blurry text. I'd imagine it would look stunning.
