      Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA S2 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      We've been researching flat panel TVs for around 3 years... waiting for lower prices to drop, we noticed grainy images using normal 480i/p signals in most LCDs and ontop of that we found the picture always had motion blurring. In the chain stores the grainy picture is usual not noticeable due to the higher resolution feed to the TVs. While it LCDs have improved recently (>$$$), it's still there. Plasma TVs always seem to soften the picture and rarely have we noticed motion blur.
      With that, the Panasonic S2 meet our expectations. It has enough connections to eliminate a reciever. The settings are easy to navigate. Remote is good. The picture quality is great from HDTV antenna, DVD and blu ray!! And it's good from our basic cable box. One con, speakers stink.

      Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA S2 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      The picture quality it incredible, the blacks are deep black and the whites are bright and clean. Contrast is impressive even without making adjustments. The only thing that is a big miss, is the sound quality, the TV sounds like it is in a tin can using the factory settings, you can adjust to improve but it leaves a lot to be desired.

      Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA S2 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      The overall quality is great I only wish it had some sort of fix for the sound. Different stations are at different volumes so I have to constantly adjust the sound. Sony has a product to fix this so I am not sure why this company does not.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The service was superb. I needed the removal of 2 defunct televisions and the moving people did this without any issues.
