Excerpt: Everyone who comes to my house and sees my TV is impressed. The picture is super clear and sharp and it's as bright as an LCD TV. One person sat and stared at it in amazement for 30 minutes because it was way more clear than her LCD TV that she'd bought only a year ago! I love watching sports on it because it almost feels like you're at the game.
Excerpt: Pro's of the panasonic viera, sharp clean picture, sound is very clean crisp and clear. A down fall of the plasma i would have to say is the cleaning of the unit, if you don't know what to use to clean the screen you are in trouble if a spray is used. Clean with lint cloth! Very good investment.
The Panasonic Viera is great TV for a great price!

Excerpt: We recently purchased this television when our older television died. We took our the Consumer Reports and did our research. We talked to friends and family and went back and forth between LCD and plasma. We finally decided to go with the Panasonic Viera. We have had it for a couple of months and are very pleased with our purchase. We found a great deal on it and spent much less than we would have for a 42 inch LCD television. There are many great features.
Excerpt: I have been looking for a plasma tv in a 42 inch size for about 6 months. I had searched and reviewed several brands on consumer review sites. This Pansonic model TH-42PZ85u was the favorite of many. So, I bought the 42 inch Panasonic plasma at Sears. It was at a closeout price, so i got it just in time! It was easy to hook up and work the menu. We immediately threw on a Pixar movie Cars, and was astounded by the color and clarity!
It's a power sucker, but it projects a vibrant image.

Excerpt: My boyfriend and I have had the Viera TH-42PZ85U 42 inch plasma television by Panasonic in our home now for a couple of years. Since the date of purchase, which was three years ago at the most, the value of this television has depreciated a lot. The price we paid for this plasma TV seems outrageous to me now considering that the same TV and similar ones can be purchased for a small fraction of that price. Anyhow, it gives off a very vibrant and clear picture.
Excerpt: As far as black levels go, you cant go wrong with plasma in general. Panasonic is the king of plasma with pioneer gone. This model in particular is fantastic. Pros: High Contrast Ratio Great Black Levels. Two different black level settings Plenty of inputs. 3 hdmi inputs eliminate need for a switch Default color settings very close to calibration levels Color levels appear realistic Cons: No 1:1 pixel mapping in 720p.
The Panasonic Viera 42in Plasma has a great picture.

Excerpt: We purchased our Panasonic Viera several years ago and we love it. The 42 inch screen offers super clear pictures both standard definition and 1080p HD. The color quality is second to none and I feel is one of the best on the market. The TV can be view from most angles almost 180 degrees. The sound quality from the TV is outstanding but is even better when the TV is hooked up to a home theater sound system.
Excerpt: I purchased the Panasonic viera when I was out looking for an LCD 42 inch flatscreen because I was convinced of the exceptional features and value for money this TV offered. The contrast ratio and clarity is unbeatable and the blacks are really black, unlike most LCD's. Also where this Tv excels is while watching fast motion like in football games or movies with a lot of special effects. It is crystal clear and adds to the experience and makes it enjoyable.
Excerpt: We bought this the Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ85U 42 inch Plasma TV as a replacement for a Sharp Aquos that we purchased from Costco that broke in less than 4 months. My husband was very skeptical of getting a plasma TV because he wasn't sure how good they were. However, the Panasonic Plasma had the best picture of all the display models, and it was on sale at Costco that particular week. This TV is excellent. The picture is clear and vivid, and we have had no problems...
Excerpt: Panasonic TH-42PZ85U is a very nice televison. I was able to do all the set up myself.I did have help (from hubby) lifting it, but it's not too heavy, about 70 lbs.The only thing missing is picture-in-picture, but my U-verse affers that option, so it's all good.The picture is fabulous.I chose the plasma over LCD, because I enjoy watching movies, and not playing videogames. I am very happy with my choice.
