This TV has really amazing picture quality even though it's 720p. I don't mind watching Hi-def Blu-ray on it even though it is not full 1080p. The one thing I should have paid more attention to was the fact that it does *not* have a PC input. I somehow assumed that it would, but was disappointed when I got it out of the box and found that it did not. Anyway, if this is not a necessity, it's hard to find a better value.

            2 other family members, and 2 good friends all own the same unit (42", 1080p), not the same year or model. It comes highly recommended, and does not disappoint. Golf and hockey in HD, two of my favorites are simply spectacular.

                This is a great tv for the price. With all the features it has you dont need anything else. It is awsome haveing family over and show them you digital photos on the tv where they can see them. very user freindly. not to sophisticated for any one to use. iI recomend getting the wall bracket for the tv it is great haveing the floor space back that a entertainment center took up in my living room. Every thing about this tv is awsome. Please dont hesitate to buy. You wont be sorry. The best thing about the panasonic brand tv is the screen sweeper so if something burns into the screen it will wipe it away just like the etch-a-sketch.

                            This is the best television for for this price range. The colors are vivid, the blacks are deep, and the contrast is outstanding for the price. This television does a excellent job of processing both high definition and standard definition materials making all materials look crisp and detail. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this tv especially for the price.

                                Basically Aspect Ratio does not allow you to see the full picture. It chops the picture which is disappointing when what letter box tv shows and movies.

                                    This TV is truly amazing. It was actually a post Christmas impulse buy, but after a quick call to a friend who really knows TV's, I realized it was a deal I couldn't pass up. After the initial 100 hour break in period (without tweaking the settings much), I looked up picture calibration settings for this TV online and must say it is stunning. I simply watch too much TV now!
