Summary: I've had my Panasonic TC-P42X1 since Nov. 2009. This is the first and only HDTV i've ever owned. Best purchase I have ever made! No problems in over 5 years of use. Paid $550 for it at Best Buy with no regrets. Still a great picture, still working great.
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.
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.
Summary: Overall, this tv is great. Love it, and I can just sit and watched 720p nature shows all day. People always seem to compliment the picture quality...and I'm not surprised because it really does look fantastic when you get the settings right.
Pros: This tv has the image quality of tv's costing up to $300.00 more. It's absolutely great. I wish it had a pc input (it was listed as having one for a brief period of time -- I assure it does not) -- but otherwise has all the connections you would want. It runs beautifully too, does not overheat at...
Cons: Ok, so I gave it 4 stars for a couple reasons. First, and most annoying, it gets a little glitchy with bright exploding images, like with camera flashes and explosions. The action does not slow down, but the image becomes a little mosaic. This doesn't really bother me, but it could be explained b...
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.
Summary: I'm a strongly value sensitive shopper(not just price). The price even with shipping, easily beat a brick-and-mortar store advertised price which also was good. I first learned of this model from a major consumer magazine.
Summary: 720p vs 1080 resolution but unless you stand within 5 feet of it, I doubt most people will notice the difference. Ideal MBR TV where the sound quality and resolution are less of an issue.
Pros: Good sized screen for a great price. At least adequate in all respects. Decent number and types of inputs. IMHO Panasonic is a leader in plasma tvs especially in the larger sizes. This one is an excellentvalue but is no ways the best that Panasonic can do but you will pay more.
Summary: Needed to get a ~40" TV, and after looking at all the Black Friday deals and reading the great reviews here, I decided to save the extra money and stay down at 720P but in plasma. HD picture exceeds that of my existing Sony 50" LCD projection and Panasonic 32" 720P LCD.
Pros: Very clear, sharp, good colors. Nice variation of connections on back. Using it as a monitor in my kitchen. Its nice to cook and watch a movie at the same time!
Cons: I have had this for about 2 months, I have a black screen saver that takes over after 4 mins and recently have noticed a burn in. Its not too bad but its noticable when I turn on the television. However new plasmas are prone to get a temp. burn in so hopefully its not perm.
