We are a retired couple and very happy with how lightweight this TV is. Our previous TV weighed a ton and was so hard to move when necessary. The picture on our new Panasonic is great, this is our first flat panel TV and could not be more pleased. Highly recommend!

purchased it, then returned it. uses a SD card, but ties it up for future use. has no USB port. I like to take pictures from my external hard drive, put on a "flash drive" & plug into a TV & watch the pictures. can do this with my other LCD TV. the Panasonic has no USB port, & that's just hard to image.

            Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA U22 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

            I haven't tried out all of the features on my TV yet, but I had such a good overall experience from ordering to delivery that I wanted to write this review before this was lost amongst my holiday to-do list. For the product, the picture quality is excellent and well-balanced color that needed no adjustment. Set-up was quick and easy right out of the box. I was most impressed by the shipping and delivery. Product shipped when expected, and on the morning of arrival I received a call from a Panasonic representative letting me know that my TV had arrived at BWI airport and would be arriving at my apartment that afternoon. I remembered seeing threshold delivery under shipping when I ordered, so I expected the box to be brought into my apartment. When the truck arrived the driver not only called me to let me know he was at my apartment building, he brought the box across the threshold and then helped me take the box upstairs to its destination. He was very personable and helpful, and while customer service is often lacking these days, Panasonic far exceeded my expectations and I will be ordering from them more often as a result. BRAVO!

                      I'd recommend this tv for anyone who is starting off with an HDTV. It's a simple plug and play TV. I had a bit of trouble making my XBOX play on it but then figured it out. This TV looks great but if you are looking for a smooth looking picture, remember, it's in the Hz not the resolution. Since this is a 60 Hz TV you won't get as good of a picture than 120+ Hz
