Excerpt: The best feature of Panasonic TH Viera is that it creates home theatre and DVD recorder link-ups without complicated settings. With Panasonic TH Viera television set you enjoy a rich multi-media connections for amplifier with speaker system, VCR, DVD Recorder, DVD Player, Personal Computer, and Camcorder. I have never experienced having a monitor for my laptop computer as huge as Panasonic Th Viera screen! I was so excited to try it the first time. Amazing!
Summary: Unfortunately, Panasonic stopped making this in a 42' version. Just bigger sizes now. The THX and 24P playback are amazing. Really deep blacks. I'm glad I got one of the last ones available in the smaller size.

Summary: With the exception of the over-priced Pioneer Kuro line, this has the best picture quality and black-levels. Set-up was incredibly easy, and quick. Also, for those without cable, the ATSC OTA tuner picked up the new OTA HD channels far better than our old standalone Samsung tuner box, so we were able to get rid of that, and enjoy all the channels we'd been missing.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture, Simple Controls
Summary: I've had this TV for a week and I haven't found anything wrong with it. It's exactly what I expected. The picture and sound are phenomenal. Sometimes I find myself not paying attention to the show I'm watching because Im too busy admiring the great picture!
Summary: I just stepped up from an HD projection set. This is a whole new experience in watching tv. The vivid, lifelike colors and sharp image of this HD set make it a pleasure to watch everything from new shows that are filmed in HD, to your old favorites. Everything looks better, and is more fun to watch.
Pros: Attractive Design, Great Picture, Simple Controls
Summary: This set looks great off (the bezel and screen are on the same plane) and on (THX mode activated and very few additional adjustments). The screen is somewhat reflective but this is to be expected. Unit comes with stand detached.
Pros: Accurate out of the box p, Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture, Simple Controls
Summary: We use our television screen almost exclusively for viewing movies. The Panasonic 1080p has a sharp picture, brilliant color, true blacks, and the picture does not suffer from ambient light on the screen. No glare or washout. We've not yet checked out the HD properties, so can't really comment on that.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture
Excerpt: I have had this tv for 2 months now, the screen clarity and contrasts are excellent. The auto setup worked without problem and it makes sport and dvd pictures such as movies into another dimension. Add a blu-ray player and hd top box set and this tv is as good as most home owners need to go. At present discounted prices (May 2009) it is really worth a search to find one of the last few sets available. I hope this is helpful.
Pros: Picture quality is excellent, sound reasonable for a flat screen by I added a simple home cinema system and it complimented picture quality perfectly.
Cons: in football terms than can be ball blurring but not bad enough to be a major problem.
Excerpt: "...range plasma televisions offered by Panasonic and it definitely fits the billing. This television displays full HD which basically means it does not have to upscale to 1080p which in theory will make for a sharper picture. In addition it is 100 hz which is meant to provide a smoother picture. At this screen size it is imposing but by the same token, flaws in the picture will be more noticable and therefore it's imperative the picture is spot on. The ...
Pros: Tremendous sound, brilliant picture, deep blacks
