Summary: I purchased this in 2006 and had to buy the HDMI module to plug into it. This is a monitor without the ability to connect directly to cable because it doesn't have a tuner. Since I've always had a cable box, I was able to put more money into the picture, rather than paying for a tuner I would never...
Summary: I have had this product for three years, and have never been more pleased with a video display. The viewing is exceptional even from a considerable angle (as opposed to most other types of display), and the colors are rich and vibrant.

12 January 2008
Summary: I work in Visual Effects at a top shop. We have ten "Flame" compositing systems, and we use this screen in every suite. The reason? They are THE BEST. Period. End of story. I am in teh Motion Picture Academy (the "Oscars" folks) and so I get movies from the studios to watch before I vote.
Summary: I've had experience with several HDTVs and this one is the best especially at this price. This is actually a commercial model TV which is a good thing. You don't have to pay for extra speakers and a tuner you won't use and its a generation ahead of consumer models in display tech.
Summary: We priced this TV at several different places. Amazon had the lowest price... and no sales tax to pay either! Shipping fees weren't much more then stores in town were going to charge. The picture is BEAUTIFUL. Sound is GREAT. Set up is SIMPLE.
Summary: The TV is awesome. DVD's playing through the HDMI port produces an incredible picture! Some older DVD's and standard definition broadcasts don't look as good, but is fine for everyday viewing. The biggest thing to worry about when buying any large TV on-line, is delivery and warrantee.
Summary: I bought a Dell 42" plasma. It had so many problems it wasn't funny. Matter of fact Dell knew it and continued to ship them. Found the Pansonic on Amazon $1500 cheaper than buying it locally. Shipping was fast even though they wouldn't set it up as advertised but what a deal and tv.
Summary: Initally purchased the Panasonic from Amazon. I received it damaged, so I had to send it back. They didn't have any left in stock, so I decided to purchase a 50" plasma from a local dealer. None of the locals had the Panasonic that I wanted, so I went with the Samsung HP-R5072.
Summary: I purchased this model based on the other reviews and haven't regreted my decision at all. The monitor works perfectly adjusting the picture when the HD locals drop out of the HD format, sports have regained my interest, although now I can see the replays and judge how accurate the NFL refs have the...
