Environment-Friendly Panel Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.

Environment-Friendly Panel

Years of Beautiful Images Long Panel Life, Up to 100,000 Hours - One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

Comments about Panasonic 42" VIERA X3 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

This my second Panasonic Plasma TV, and I am completely satisfied with both units. The picture quality is second to none. I have compared the Panasonic Plasma to several other makes and models, and it out performs them all. LCD, LED, or plasma, it does'nt matter. This is by far the best unit out there.

Delivery was fast and exactly when scheduled.

    Our WIFI wouldn't reach our family room and we need to run a line for any of it's internet options. But, right now it's great. The picture is clear. Just a little blurry with fast action. Also noted some glare, but it is a plasma after all. We love it.

        This TV replaced a 36" CRT TV in our master bedroom that was going bad. Fit just fine. 2D none HD pictures washout in bright lights. Other than that, picture quality is very good for a 720p TV.

              High-quality picture and good sound. Color options on remote offer cool tones and warm tones and after I switched from the default "cool" to "warm 1," I was as content as could be. I had a great dependable Sony and this Panasonic stacks up well. Movies look fab (subtitles on foreign films are easier to read!) and food (from food shows to TV commercials) looks amazing! However, non-HD channels look worse than they did with my old-fashioned, non HD Sony TV.

                      Just got this TV to replace an old 32" CRT (made by Panasonic) that finally quit working. The quality of the picture on this flat panel is outstanding. If you just need a good TV and you don't need tons of bells and whistles and features you probably won't use anyway then this is a good choice. Just avoid using in a room with a lot of light due to reflective glare on the screen. Darken the room, start a movie, and enjoy a great home theater experience. Installation and setup is easy. The 42" screen size can be handled by one average sized person with no problem. I have mine on the pedestal stand and it looks great.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      The TV was delivered in perfect shape. Arrived in about a week. The delivery company took the time to inspect the contents of the box to make sure that everything was there and in good condition.
