Excerpt: I was afraid to purchase this TV! It was the first time I had bought a Flat Screen! I have had it for about 3 months now and I think it was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time! It is hard for me to make big purchases. It is very easy to hook up and operate and looks fantastic! I love it and will purchase this brand again!
Excerpt: We have this tv in the 42 inch model. The picture is really clear and crisp. Good sound quality. The 42 inch is the perfect size for our family room. Relatively light and easy to set up. I have had the tv for about 5 months now and I love it!I would definitely buy another and recommend it to others.
Summary: If I had rated this TV a few days ago, it would have gotten five stars. However, it just died the other night while my wife and I were watching TV on it. It made a 'pop', and the picture went away. I tried disconnecting the power, and turning it back on. It blinks the red LED ten times, waits, then repeats. Looks like an error code to me. It was a great TV before it died. It died about two months after the one year warranty ran out.
Summary: This television was great right out of the box. No adjustments necessary. The sound is superb for watching TV and for most movies. The "White-Glove" service Amazon claims to have is most laughable. If I was unable to lift, the television would still be outside. Also, the delivery man, not men, didn't set the TV up. He merely propped it against a wall and checked to see if it got power and whether the remote worked. He didn't even take the box away.
Summary: I did a lot of research about this product before taking the plunge. In the finale analysis setup and calibration was a snap and the picture quality is superb.The THX color control is so dead on that with just a couple of minor tweaks the picture was perfect. I used a calibration disc to fine tune the TV and found that black level, color balance and all of the other adjustments were spot on.
Summary: I purchased this TV largely based on CNET and consumer report's reviews. Amazon had one of the best prices- when you get it directly from them. White glove delivery was as described. Two men brought the TV into my home, pulled it out of the box, set it up on my cabinet and we turned it on. They were going to take the packaging away, but I kept it in case something went wrong- so far, so good. The picture is excellent.
Summary: I've had this for 2 months now with no problems. Buy it from Warehouse deals, if you can, and save some money. With shipping ours totaled $1690 and they had a local crew deliver and set it up for me. Like many others, I thoroughly researched and read the reviews on this model and I have not been disappointed with the picture or quality. The *only* thing I was disappointed about was the fact the SD slot does not play movies, at least not AVCHD movies.
Summary: This is such a great tv. All I can say is wow. I did my research for over a year and finally settled on this one. I am now so satisfied. Panasonic th50pz800u is the way to go. It also got editors choice at cnet.com. Amazon is also great. I had no problems with the white glove service.
