Summary: I'm very disappointed this TV has stopped working after owning it for only 15 months. The picture went green and then black. When I turn the TV on now, the LED flashes 7 times and that's it! Extensive searching revealed it's the Y-SUS board that has failed. The TV is only 3 months out of warranty, but neither Amazon or Panasonic are willing to honor the guarantee. When the TV was working, the picture was stunning.
Summary: Panasonic is well known for its durability and high quality plasmas. However, I had to write a full testimony on how this product is giving me headaches recently. Dear Panasonic, today is a sad day. Today was the day I lost some of the respect I had for the Panasonic brand. What happens when customer care is forgotten? What happens when a product isn't as good as it was supposed to be? Please help me with this issue.
Summary: I love my new TV, setting are easy to follow and the picture is fab. The only fault I have is the remote control needs a little shake for the battery to hit the thingymajiggy. I think it may have been dropped on its little journey. Other than that I am very pleased with what I have.
Summary: This smart viera TX-P42G30B 42" HD ready was a great TV untill it started to buzz after about 9 months. Everythink was great, picture in HD and Blueray was the best id seen and would of loved to of kept it but once the annoying buzzing started i couldnt keep it. I Phoned amazon explained it to them, within 2 days it was picked up then 5 days later money was in my bank as i chose a full refund, Fair play to Amazon!!!!!! that is what i call service.
Summary: I've had this TV for about 6 months now and it is a good product in some respects. The picture looks great with good black levels and really good colour. The built in media player is good and plays a number of formats including MKV which is very handy. The sound quality on the other hand is diabolical - even the cheap supermarket own brand TV I have in the bedroom has better sound.
Pros: Great looking picture
Cons: Very poor sound quality, Viera Connect not Supported Properly
Summary: I was ready to be disappointed and frustrated. I had been following TV technology while unemployed for two years and using an interim CRT TV. A month back in work I finally plumped for this TX-P42G30B at a great price, with boxed sealed units on display. I waited 2 days to set it up. I was worried my middling strength signal on my STB would be exacerbated by this TV.
Summary: Purchased this tv after reading many reviews across a whole range of products, cannot be happier as picture quality is absolutely superb.Also has whole range of additional features to compliment the set.
Summary: I loved my 32" Sony Bravia and wondered how this could be better. With standard def and TV broadcasts it looks excellent but where this TV really shines is with Blu-Ray. Incredible. Motion is perfect, colours vibrant and blacks are ... well... very black! Faults? ... it really does show up poor quality broadcasts for how bad they are, the intelligent frame creations thing is best switched off unless watching upscaled DVD's and the automatic picture adjustment gives a...

Summary: Bought on 07/03/2012 from Amazon and delivery as always excellent. The TV is an excellent model as the reports from Panasonic cofirmed. I had read in a earlier review in 2011 of a "buzzing noise" however I have nothing adverse to report and the colour is so natural. Excellent buy.
