OK if you do not mind vertical lines on your screen and a worthless warranty

Summary: Lots of features for a $650 TV that, as a secondary, guest room TV and thus used perhaps 20 hours, is now a candidate for Goodwill. Worthless. Less than 2 years old. Junk!!!! Avoid Panasonic TVs.
Summary: I bought this tv to connect with the internet. I finally got connected and found that I cannot get youtube, which was a main goal. I suppose I should have known to check specifically for youtube access, but silly me, I thought internet connection would be enough.
Line in the middle of the screen after 6 months. Horrible custmer service for warranty.

Summary: I bought this unit in September of 2011 and after 6 months a vertical lline in the middle of the screen appear. Amazon to,d me they canonly provide a partial reimburse and Panasonic told me I need to take the TV to a service center. I live in NY and to take a 42" TV in a cab formservice to check it and wait for an assessment is unacceptable, they should have service at home for thse type of products, it is not a simple camcorder.... Do not recommend to buy it.
Summary: Bought this TV in October 2011. Screen took a dump May 2012 less then a year. Customer service put me on hold for an hour and a half. Waiting to see how effective the repair shop Panasonic referred me to is in making repairs or giving me a new TV. Never had a TV that failed in less then a year (or less then 10).
Summary: I am one of the guy that was mislead by the Panasonic website,too. When I bought this TV, I just thought that it is a Panasonic VIERA TV and decided to buy it. My understanding that time was that VIERA TV is a smart internet TV. Here is the quote from Panasonic website " Panasonic VIERA TVs combine high picture quality, ""smart networking"" , environmental friendliness ... ".
Summary: Stay away from Panasonic Viera TVs. We had one last only 1 1/2 years and Panasonic would not do anything to help. There is a manufacturer's defect-a red blinking light started appearing by the power button and eventually it would not turn on at all. After a quick check on the Internet I found hundreds and hundreds of people complaining of the same problem.
Summary: I ordered the Panasonic Viera TC-L42E30 twice after trying to assemble the tv and noticing that the bracket that is fastened to the back of the tv was the wrong part. I was very excited to receive the tv and frustrated when I could not assemble the tv. Next, I called Panasonic and they told me that I was using the wrong bracket that is screwed into the pedestal and then attached to the tv. The tv had to be returned and then a replacement was sent.
Summary: I bought the Viera Plasma a little over a year ago. It made a pop sound a few weeks back when turning it off, then the dreaded 4 blinks. Google'ing it, it appears to be the power board. Researching it further shows many people are frustrated with this product and even more frustrated with the lack of customer support from Panasonic. My suggestion is get a different brand, read reviews by using Google and good luck to you.
Summary: I have bought this TV on the one day deal in Last week of October from Amazon where the price was very attractive, in fact many of my friends and colleagues bought this model on the same day. The disappointing part is though it is called internet TV, it has limited appstore support. It does not support many popular apps like youtube.
Summary: HAVING HAD THIS TV FOR 2 MONTHS NOW, TO SAY I AM UNDERWHELMED, WOULD PROBABLY BE A LITTLE SHORT OF THE TRUTH. DELIVERY WAS GREAT BY AMAZON, HOWEVER I AM NOT CONVINCED THAT PANASONIC HAVE UPHELD THEIR SIDE OF THE BARGAIN. THE PICTURE IS VERY AVERAGE, ALTHOUGH I DONT WATCH MUCH TV SO I CAN LIVE WITH THAT, WHAT I CANNOT LIVE WITH IS THE FACT THAT THE TV TURNS ITSELF OFF WHENEVER IT FEELS LIKE IT - MID TV SHOW OR MID DVD.
