Panasonic black level PROBLEMS!

Ian C., Newegg
7 February 2010
  • Pros: Fantastic picture and all that.
  • Cons: PANASONICS HAVE BLACK LEVEL PROBLEMS! Google "panasonic black levels" and you'll find some information related to Panasonic plasma black levels rising DRAMATICALLY after a preset amount of hours. Panasonic has flip-flopped on the issue, initially stating it was due to an overly aggressive voltage...

Great TV, When It Works!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2010
  • Summary: My advice is this.... Buy the cheapest off-brand LCD or plasma you can find because all of them are a ticking time bomb waiting to fail! This way, when it quits working, you won't be out that much in the way of cash! If you don't believe me ....
  • Pros: I have the TH-42PZ700U which is similar to this model. I've owned mine for 3 years and 2 months now and love this TV. The 42" screen size @ 1080p is unreal and clearly has the best picture of anything out there on the market that I've seen to date!
  • Cons: Price is to high for a TV that will only last 2 -3 years max. Now, call me old fashion, but all my previous CRT TVs lasted 10 years+ without any problems and didn't cost half as much. I paid $1500 and just barely got 3 years out of it before breaking due to cheap Chinese electronic components use...

Connectivity thoughts

Victor C., Newegg
6 February 2010
  • Summary: I've connected a computer dedicated to home theater to this panel. Via HDMI. Using a high end video card this panel gives an amazing picture at full 1080p from the computer, this arrangement also gives me the availability to enjoy video streaming from the web from places like netfxxx.
  • Pros: Picture quality, blacks, clarity, ability to connect with computer for home theater. PC hdmi to panel hdmi at 1920x1080. Tuner for external antenna of exceptional quality with signal strength meter. I've had this panel for about 7 months now and did buy from newegg, their delivery arrangement was...
  • Cons: none worth mentioning

Awesome score

Maxwell D., Newegg

  • Pros: Fantastic picture, black blacks. THX mode brings out the best in my media pc and ps3! Vieracast is a neat item but not necessary. Great color right off the bat, little calibration necessary!
  • Cons: Waited until 2010 to buy one!

Lovin it.

Christopher F., Newegg
3 February 2010
  • Summary: I shopped long and hard for a Tv to mount in my room and finally settled on this one. After i ordered it i got disturbed by how many people were saying the color qualities were really lacking, but i disagree, if tuned correctly it looks great.
  • Pros: Motion looks great on this TV. Great Picture. Easily updated firmware. Stock sound was nice (while i used it). The Price (I bought it on sale too) When set correctly, Great picture quality.
  • Cons: I found it difficult to tweak the picture settings to really get the best out of it. The presets were ALL too dark, and Vivid was a little too vivid. Would be nice if the Vieralink was wireless, but they'll get there. Kinda silly the PC connection is on the side... for those of us who want it alw...

Great TV

Matthew E., Newegg
29 January 2010
  • Summary: I researched TV's a lot before deciding on this one. The picture just looked better then most and the features couldn't be matched. With that said I wasn't disapointed this TV is awsome. Movies, tv programs, and games look great. The blacks are superb as our the colors.
  • Pros: Great picture and plenty of hook ups. Easy to use remote and menu system. Quick setup and great picture out of the box. Good sound. Nice looking. Reflections not realy a problem. Internet conection is cool.
  • Cons: Some reflections in high light levels.

Wow

Anonymous, Newegg
14 January 2010
  • Summary: I looked at the lower end model Panasonic 42" plasma at Best Buy. It was noticeably darker than the surrounding LCDs, but the quality of the picture was so much better that I started researching the Panasonic line more. The G10 has a few more features but both TVs provide a great value.
  • Pros: This plasma provides such a beautiful picture. Some reviews complained that it didn't produce a a bright enough picture, but it looks absolutely stunning to me. It does take a little tuning, and whether THX mode being on creates a better picture is really going to be a personal preference. I'm co...
  • Cons: The stand doesn't swivel... Seriously. That's all I can think of.

Awesome Picture

Hans Z., Newegg
14 January 2010
  • Summary: Took a little longer to get delivered than I had hoped for. In the carrier's defense, the weather in the midwest has been lousy for truckers as of late. Overall a very pleasant experience which is the norm for anything I buy from Newegg.
  • Pros: All I can say is WOW!! Great picture. This replaced a 2 year old 32" Sammy LCD. I just bought a Blue Ray player a month ago and was very well pleased with the HD picture on the Sammy. This plasma just blows it away.
  • Cons: Can't think of any other than I wish they were cheaper, but Newegg had the best deal.

Fantastic Plasma

Bennett J., Newegg
7 January 2010
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time researching televisions before deciding on this one. As I said, this isn't the cheapest TV out there, but it certainly outclasses the other TVs I looked at in this price range. I've had no buyers remorse, and to be quite honest, I kind of want to hug my TV whenever I get home.
  • Pros: Amazing picture. Youtube features work pretty well, if you can handle the phone-style keyboard. The SD slot on the side of this was actually a much better feature than I initially thought it would be. Looking at pictures on a big screen with a group of people is a unique experience, and the large...
  • Cons: Price, I guess. It's not the cheapest TV out there. Also, regarding the firmware, I'm hoping at some point they'll add functionality. Getting instant weather information is fantastic, and YouTube is well, YouTube, but I'd love to see perhaps a facebook module that lets you browse picture galleries.
