Summary: I have three plasma TVs: a Panasonic TH-42X60U, a Panasonic TC-P50G10, and a Samsung PN51D7000. The 42 and 51 have been professionally calibrated. For the 50, I use the THX setting, sort of. I use a single Logitech Harmony One remote control to control all three systems. The Panasonic 42 is used in the bedroom hanging on a wall above the French doors that lead into the master bath.
Pros: Does a great job for what I need
Cons: Should have much more user set-up options - THX ain't the do-all, end-all.
Summary: This TV worked great for ~11 months and then then just shut off on its own one day and won't turn back on. It just blinks the Power Light 5 times, over and over. I scheduled an in-home repair and 20 days later the local service center is STILL waiting on the part. Won't by anything Panasonic again.
Summary: I was concerned with a few things when buying a big screen tv. 1. Do I have to change my cable service - no you don't. I kept my basic cable and got a number of channels in 1080i and 720p. You just have to run the normal set up of letting the tv search for channels which took about 10- to 15 minutes or longer if I remember. 2. I hate the complexity of using some set ups with cable boxes and complex remotes etc.
Summary: I purchased this set about a month ago, after looking at a LOT of online reviews. I wasn't sure about Plasma-didn't they "burn in," have overly-saturated colors, and run hot? This purchase was intended to replace a Panasonic 30" CRT HD set, which had a great picture, but at about 175Lbs, was almost impossible to move. Also, it required a bit of tweaking to get a good picture, and had only one HDMI connector, and no optical audio out.
Summary: When you use a blu ray player you need a tv that can do 24 fps or 24p correctly , with a plasma you need to set the hertz to 96, this tv to my horror only offers a 24p in at 60 and 48hz. this was just a unbelievable shock that this is that way on such a expensive set. if you set it at 48hz the tv flickers , at 60hz the tv drops a frame and increase judder movements. this tv should have had this feature because even far less expensive tv's have 24p in naturally.
Summary: Bought it since had great reviews, wasn't disappointed. LOt's of input options, haven't tested out the VIERA Link but hopefully should be as good as promised. Picture clarity is great, even for non HD channels.
Summary: As with many others on here, I did extensive research for months on TV's before finally deciding on one. (Why wouldn't you? It's a lot of money). I weighed the Pros and Cons of Plasma vs. LCD (LED is out of my price range so I didn't really consider them.) I narrowed it down to Samsung LCD or Panasonic Plasma.
Summary: Finally, after a lot of reviews and investigation I decided to purchase this TV. I had been investigating some of the LED models especially the back lit ones from LG and Toshiba. The LG 47LH90 was on sale from Sears at a decent price along with its home theater but somehow it got sold out pretty quickly. Hearing that the LED tv's match the quality of plasma with lower power consumption I got attracted to them.
Summary: First, let me say the tv is amazing. It has to be of the best HDTV avaialable. The picture is amazing and I would absolutely purchase the tv again. The sound is ok, but I usually use a my home theater for the sound, which is a must if you are you are going to buy a Tv of this quality. The picture is best when using a blu-ray, then you really see the difference in picture from anything else. Also sports look incredible and zero blurring the motion is crisp and detailed.
