Summary: the picture is pretty good apart from the blacks flashing as described in some reviews, which, once you know about it, really bugs you when you see it happening (me at least), but, the sound from the built in speakers is just AWFUL, if you plan on using this TV without a home cinema system running...
Summary: We got one of these sets. Initially seemed great but then it exhibited strange characteristics in dark scenes. As the scene gets darker, the whole picture is dimmed and its hard to see whats going on. You can see this happening in quick changing scenes.
Summary: Ordered the TX-L42E5B on a Friday at 15:30 and it was delivered by Amazon on the Saturday at 11:30. Super service! I found the colour, out of the box, to be too saturated, glaring, vivid, almost cartoonish, giving a soft texture to most images, SD being the worst, HD better but not great.
Summary: This TV shows much promise but does not deliver especially when it comes to the sound. The picture is great and the features are very interesting but like many flat screen TVs the sound is far from good.
