Summary: I've owned this tv for nearly 2 1/2 years and throughout that time the picture has never dulled. The display is crisp, natural, and the blacks are perfect... 2 1/2 years later. I recommend this tv for a person who has no idea what they want, between an lcd, led, or plasma. The Panssonic plasmas are cheap, durable, and have the best picture for the money... oh and specs, not just on paper. A must buy for anyone...
Excerpt: We have had this TV for over six months now and couldn't be happier. Initially, I was looking at this TV and the Samsung for around the same price, but the colors looked better on Panasonic. The picture looks great, It was easy to set up and there were no problems at all. I got it working with my Harmony remote easily.
Excerpt: My wife and I bought this Telivision about 3 months ago. We decided it was time to replace the old tube TV in our living room and we wanted something affordable since it would be used mostly for daily shows and Wii games. Our theater room was in the basement so we did not need anything over 42" for our livingroom. We decided on 720p as anything under 47" you cannot tell the difference between 720 and 1080. So far we are loving the TV.
Excerpt: I've had it for about 3 months and so far have had no issues. The picture quality is amazing for the price and the size of the screen is truly a thing of beauty compared to my previous tv, which was only about 26 inches. I use this to play ps3 and xbox 360 as well as for watching movies. There are definitely better TV's out there, but you'd have to pay a lot more to have any significant reason to purchase that one over this.
Excerpt: I love my new Panasonic 42" TV. My old tv lasted about a year before burning out and would cost as much as a new one to fix, so I bought a new one and a better brand for sure. I spend a lot more time watching tv in the living room now that I get to watch everything on a huge tv with quality picture. My boyfriend loves to play his video games on it and is extremely excited.
Excerpt: My husband and I love this tv so much we bought a second one. The picture quality is amazing and so is the price - we purchased for around $500-$600. The picture looked like digital quality before our provider had switched to cable. We didn't need to get an HD box for this tv, like our other big screen because of the sharpness and awesome color.
Excerpt: This Plasma TV has to currently be among, if not the best value in any Tv you could buy. This is 720P but that doesn't mean you can't watch Blu-rays on it. At 42" a Blu-ray may look marginally better on the same size 1080P set. As you go larger the difference is more notable. These newer plasmas don't really have issues with burn-in as the really early plasmas had.
Excerpt: The Panasonic - TC-P42C2 42 inch Plasma TV is very high in its class. Its picture is perfect, very excellent. When buying, instructions and all connections to it are very easy to figure out. Also, Panasonic offers great customer service, very professional help. The price is another thing worth looking out for. The cost is not too great very affordable to most people, but this will also depend on where you plan to buy your new panasonic Plasma TV.
Excerpt: We had been watching and waiting for tv prices to drop. When prices finally fell to a more comfortable lower price, I dug in and started researching brands. The Panasonic rated right up top. I was kinda surprised but in almost every publication of electronics reviews I looked at, the Panasonic was at the top. We have had ours for almost a year and it still works and looks like brand new. It is so light. The picture is amazing.
Excerpt: I ended up getting this TV for $349 on sale. I wasn't sure what to expect from it, but Panasonic is held in high regard in the plasma world and this TV was better than I could hope. My last HDTV was a 19 inch LCD, so this was a great jump in size and quality. Once I calibrated it to my liking, it looks amazing. Images are very sharp on cable because broadcasters are not putting anything out in 1080p.
