Summary: I enjoy my TV very much. But, the reason I didn't give it a 5 Star is because of the screen at the bottom almost in the center has a back-light that the light isn't well distributed and is like a wide beam of light shining up. I've gotten used to it, but doesn't seam like a fixable thing. It's just annoying in a low light room, very noticeable.
Summary: I Purchased this on here (Amazon) October 2011, and over All I've been very impressed! Great Bang for buck, It also has the HDMI Protocol to talk to you're devices I Can Control my Sony PS3 from the Factory remote and it wasn't a big deal at all to set up! It has a great picture, great sound for built in speakers, I use it everyday even if I just play music, I Mainly play Video games such as COD, or Watch Netflix and It's been great!
Summary: My only major criticism is that the embedded Amazon Instant Video player is quite poor. I chose this model because Amazon was promoting it as having this capability. However the player is incredibly bare-bones, and worse, has terrible trouble syncing / buffering both when a video begins, when resuming after pausing, and sometimes for no apparent reason. I assumed Panasonic would release a firmware update with at least some bug fixes, but they have not.
Summary: As many of you, I also spent a good year (minimum) reading reviews, looking for deals, going to electronics stores and comparing screens. I had a number of criteria for choosing a screen: 1. low energy usage (the tcl-42e3 sips watts in comparison to its rivals,40-60 watts) 2. light-weight (30.6 lbs-easy to pick up and mount on your own) 3.
Summary: Sometimes I just don't understand negative reviews. They can be so misleading and distracting, and can set you off on a wild goose chase looking for a perfect TV. Un boxed the TV today. Set up was a snap. The one exception was the plastic cord securing the electrical cord in the back of the set. Couldn't figure out how to open it. Cut it, but it still hangs in the back of the TV. After that, everything went smoothly. Picture out of the box is excellent. So easy.
Summary: This was my first hdtv purchase and I broke in the market with a homerun. I read numerous reviews on this item and it didnt do it justice at all. This TV has everything you would want besides the wireless feature. The only thing that I noticed when I really looked hard was a little light leak in pitch black scenes in the top corners, that is it, but it is a non issue. 5 stars on this item, I have had it for 2 months now and had no problems with it.
