Excerpt: The Panasonic TC P42X1 has everything that I look for in a flat screen TV and I always recommend this TV to all of my friends, family, associates, everybody and there are good reasons why I recommend this TV to every single person who is lookinng for a flat screen TV. The first reason I recommend this TV to everybody is the price.
Summary: How glad am I that I bought the Panasonic VIERA X1 Series TC-P42X1? 5 STARS GLAD! This TV looks superb no matter what I'm watching. I know there are plenty of 1080p-addicts out there, but the 720p picture on this set has never let me down. I have a Pioneer DV-610AV 720p DVD player, a PS3, a PS2 and a Sega Dreamcast hooked up to it. The DVD player and PS3 are hooked up to HDMI, the PS2 to component, and the Dreamcast to S-Video.
Summary: I bought this tv almost a year ago and its been a great purchase, the picture quality is stunning for a 720 plasma. The tv will make your room warmer since it puts out a lot of heat i love it for my playstation 3 and bluray movies.
Summary: Purchased based on consumer,expert reviews.Exceeds expectation's,great tv for the price.Have seen posts for black level degedation issue,keeping my fingers crossed,Panasonic should offer an option in event of issue occuring.Think it will hurt thier rep.
Summary: I waited 10.5 months to offer as accurate a review as I can. This is the first HD TV that I purchased and am I gald I did. Before I made my purchase on Amazon last July, I read as much as I can from Consumer Reports to CNET to random internet blogs and of course Amazon feedbacks. Because I had a limited budget I wanted the most for my buck, so I went to Plasma instead of LCD last year.
Summary: What a pain-free way to get a new TV! I was quite worried about potential shipment damage, etc. My fears were unwarranted. The delivery service Amazon uses was super! The guy carried the set in the house, assembled everything, set it all up, and formatted it. I never saw that kind of service before. As for the set, it is great! Great picture! Great sound! Couldn't be better!
Summary: Our previous TV was a decent 32-inch LCD with an excellent picture. After three years, I came to realize that a 32-inch size is not optimum for viewing from 8-10 feet away in our living room. So I set off on researching a larger HDTV option. I determined that a 40-42 inch size would fit our space perfectly and be well-suited to our viewing distance. Based on my good experience with the 32-inch LCD, I started looking at 40-inch LCDs only.
Summary: I purchased this for my parents who are older and very low tech. It has delivered everything promised. They have not had any difficultly using the controls, picture is very good and sound is reasonable for the price. Connectors are conveniently placed on the side and rear of unit.
