Summary: The t.v came on the day it was scheduled to be without any noticeable problems, so automatically the shipment gets a 5 star. When I got this t.v, I was drowning in joy. I bought it with the intention of using it as my T.V (via cable and PS3) and computer monitor setup for my brand new computer that I built myself.
Summary: We purchased this TV for our bedroom after considering buying an LED. Considering that the LED technology is more expensive at this point because it is newer we decided on a Plasma. After reading many reviews, we decided this TV was the best for the $$$. The picture quality is excellent and the Viera Cast aps (Netflix, Amazon, etc) are great! We had just purchased the same TV but bigger version for our living room and love that one as well.
Summary: Got this through AMAZON and it is after getting a 58 inch Panasonic VT25 3D TV and falling in love. The GT25 is the BEST HD TV on the market and is the only Plasma 42' 3D... and you cant get it at Best Buy or other stores! Do not get anything less than the GT level as the quality of the image is not the same as the lesser Panasonics. Do your homework.
Summary: Well, I'm a gamer. As a gamer my primary concern for an HDTV was input lag. After doing research it came to my attention Panasonic plasmas have quite low input lag(16-20ms) while not in game mode and as a result have high PQ with low input lag. I was concerned about Image Retention and Burn-in. After further research it became apparent that Burn-in was hardly a concern for reasonable use.
Summary: I spent a huge amount of time researching HD televisions before making this purchase. Early in my shopping I had almost ruled out plasma but, after reading many articles with regard to the benefits of plasma, I took the plunge. I always have felt that plasma screens displayed the most natural looking images, especially for viewing movies.
Summary: I upgraded from a 27" CRT so expectations were high. I had heard what you see in the Showroom is not what you see at home and I must say, this TV has excellent picture quality. I had read a lot about the LCD LED's particularly about picture quality not being upto par so was a little bit hesitant. Here is a synopsis of some features. Picture: HD is very very good.
Summary: Very short version of this review - I have now purchased my 3rd Panasonic GT25 series 3D plasma. I'm a former HT journalist, and for the price range I have not seen any display that rivals the Panasonic plasmas. Black level is amazing, detail is great, and 3D experience is fantastic as well. Only small negatives - no audio output (line level or speaker level), and very slight posterization (color banding) in certain scenes.
Summary: I couldn't be happier! the panny is out-the-box pretty much well set-up. the THX mode is great to watch movies and i even found out the profesional settings to improved the picture (not a very much deviation from the THX mode, but i'm very picky with my picture). Could not comment about the 3D experience 'cause i don't have the glasses yet, so an update will follow.
