      Comments about Panasonic 32" VIERA C12 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      I got this set last year in Mar. Absolutely no problems till now. Replaced a heavy not so good Polaroid. I'm very impressed w/blacks, I don't care about the sound because it's connected to a simple but effective surround system. Installation was a breeze, as I already had a full motion wall bracket, and lifting this set was a one man operation.

        Comments about Panasonic 32" VIERA C12 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

        This was my first LCD HDTV that I have purchased. The picture quality is great, the features are great although I wish it had an additional antenna input for an external antenna along with the cable connection. Other than that, this is a great tv and I enjoy it each and every day! I just recently purchased a Panasonic Blue Ray DVD player and the vierra link feature is awesome. When I turn the tv on, the DVD player will come on and I can use just one remote, either the one that came with the TV or the DVD player which is very, very nice! I reccomend this tv to anyone that is looking for a good priced, feature packed LCD HDTV.

          Comments about Panasonic 32" VIERA C12 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

          Viewed many low-end 32" TV's in stores and this unit was 2nd best in picture quality of all compared, but costs much less than the unit with best picture. Sound quality is rather poor - disappointed with this aspect. occasionally, TV goes blank, requiring a power cycle to restore - this is troubling, but only has occurred 4 times in 6 month period and not recently. TV is light on features - hence, I would recommend it if it were to be used as a secondary TV, but would not recommend it if it were to be used in a home entertainment center.

            if you dont havr any HD channels you dont get the best picture but once you hook it up to a cable box and get the HD channels you'll see how great the picture quality is.

            Really nice TV - solid picture quality and easy to live with day-to-day. The 32" screen is ~2x the 20" CRT it replaced. Family & friends are surprised to learn it's "only" 720p. It handles sports well, but I've noticed the blacks are pretty weak from the Wii's 420p feed even with upgraded RGB component cables.

            Considering it costs under $500 you really can't go wrong with it in any appropriately narrow space

                I live in a studio apartment and I use this TV as my main one. It is connected to the Comcast DVR box.
                Setting up was easy, and I'm really not a tech person.
                Size is great, picture quality (even with the regular cable) is great. Somebody advised me to get an HDMI cable, and it made such a big difference in picture quality, it was too bright! I had to adjust it down.
                The only problem I have is with sound. It seems like sometimes it gets quieter, sometimes louder, like waves. I should probably call customer support to solve this mistery. Other than that I'm very happy with this TV. I hope it lasts!

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was very prompt, surprised me! I guess I live not far from the main store.

                  This is the first HDTV I'd ever bought. It replaced a 27 inch, 13 year old analogue set. The features and ease of operation, make this a great set. All of the consumer electronics (TV, Stereo, DVD Recorder, DVD Player) are all Panasonic. I have owned the set since May, 2009. The lack of analogue stereo output/headphone jack is a definite missing feature. Wayno
