Summary: I bought this right after black friday in 2010 at walmart for $499, i still have it up and running and its perfect for me. I watch alot of sports, movies and play video games on it and it looks awesome. The only thing I think its missing is more hdmi ports (has 2) and maybe a picture in picture feature, other than that its perfect for the price i got it at and i was upgrading from a Vizio 32"
Summary: i shouldn't complain much - i got this on clearance for only 269 from target...but i was replacing a Panasonic TH-42PX600U which was the best series of early plasmas so my standards are high. this is a decent tv and seems comparable in many ways except two. 1. i agree with another review that says colors are somewhat cloudy or creamy looking 2. it seems to pixelate slightly when changing from major scene to scene (such as commercial to commercial).
Summary: I have owned this TV for a year. It has a great picture and I have no screen reflection problems. Sound quality is not as good as a Panasonic Plasma TH-42PX600U that I had in this location before moving it. Some of the sound issue is probably due to the downward facing speakers and less power than the 42" TV. I own three plasma TV's(two Panasonic and one Pioneer) and have had minimal reflection or image retention problems.
Summary: So, we ended up needing a new TV in a hurry, and didn't have a bunch of money to spend. After checking out a bunch of various models, we ended up deciding that the Panasonics had, by far, the best bang for the buck, especially for 720p models. We were all but set on the 42" model, but the 46" was only $25 more at the place we went to, making it a total no brainer. A month in, we couldn't be more satisfied. Really a great TV.
Summary: I am no expert on HDTV but am satisfied with this TV for the money I paid for it. The picture is good and it has ample connections as far as I am concerned. It is a good looking TV to look at and has enough options and adjustments to meet all my wants. The major problem I have with it is if you are going to use an OTA antenna as I do it will not allow you to store stations manually or previously auto programed stations you have ran so every time you change directons on...
Summary: I'm 25 and have been using my 27" tube TV I got for Christmas when I was 16. I finally caved and decided it was time for an upgrade. The whole plasma vs LCD stuff made the decision to buy a HDTV that much more intimidating. Then there's the 720p vs 1080p. Oh yeah, and now there's LED and 3D HDTVs. However, after doing a lot of research, a few things became clear... ON PLASMA VS LCD: Prices on plasmas are MUCH better than LCDs. I want a big TV.
Summary: I found myself in Best Buy on Christmas eve at 2PM hoping to score a $500 Dynex 46" LCD 1080P. Alas they were all gone; but as I turned to leave I saw this beautiful Panasonic Plasma for only $549. What a deal. I have long been a fan of all things Matsushita starting with the Vivitar 283 back in the '73. So I took the plunge and brought one home with zero on line research which is very unlike me.
