Summary: Since 06-07, Been excellent ever since! This plasma tv came out in August 2006, Bought this around that time brand new at SEARS. It is now almost July 2014 and i have not had one problem with this awesome flat screen.
Summary: The Panasonic TH-42PX60U is the Volvo of Televisions. When I purchased this TV almost 7 years ago, I was a single guy living in a 1 bedroom condo. Now, I'm married with two children, and this TV is one of the few relics from my single days years ago that has remained throughout the years.
Summary: Comments about Panasonic TH-42PX60U: I've had this TV for about 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love it! I wouldn't trade it for the world. My friends would tell me that plasma TVs aren't good, but when I got this TV, I proved them all wrong!
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture, Simple Controls
Summary: Like most, I spent a long time agonizing over screen size, resolution, etc... I chose this set for price, brand (I have little brand loyalty, but Panasonic has earned it over 25 years with me), and image. I'm no videophile, so I didn't engage in comparing all the little stats and numbers.
Summary: The truth is most people still watch SD programming on their HDTVs. I wanted a TV that would give good SD quality and I think this one gives outstanding quality. I have Dish Network International programming (that won't be going HD any time soon) and the channels look great on this TV.
Summary: When I decided to buy an HDTV, I spent nearly a month comparing all the different brands and formats (LCD, DLP, Plasma, CRT), and finally settled (sight-unseen) on this Panasonic 42" Plasma, and I couldn't be happier!
Summary: UPDATE: There is a 3 inch vertical green stripe (from top to bottom on the right end of the screen) that appeared all of a sudden yesterday (3 weeks of moderate usage). The stripe disappeared after I turned the tv off and turned it on after 15-20 minutes. This morning it appeared again.
Summary: Wow, the picture is even better than I imagined. This is one great tv. The speakers are so good I don't have to bother hooking up my Bose ones. To say I'm happy with this purchase is an understatement, price was great too.
Summary: I've had this for over a year now. This is an excellent TV with incredible image quality. Many TVs produce unpleasent reds, but this one handles every shade with ease. Blacks could be a little deeper, but it's not a problem thanks to adjustability and great controls.

Summary: What a discovery! This is the best plasma HDTV available in this price range. I bought this during the Holidays along with a 50" Vizio and I prefer this model. I have never been more confident in a decision.
