          This TV was so easy to set up. The Smart programming found my wifi right away and the instructions to follow came right from the TV. The picture is excellent, it looks close to 3D, seems as if the actors are in the room with me. Very easy to use, sound is great, the stand is easy to set up. Low profile TV, beautiful. Has all the wifi apps I like, Amazon, VUDU, Netflix and more.

            Best Uses

              Disclaimer: I don't use the "smart" features at all, I'm just reviewing the tv performance as a display. This purchase replaced a tube HDTV and, wow, what a difference! Great colors, minimal motion blur, and a good viewing angle. A huge plus for us is the matte finish on the screen cuts down the glare from lights and windows to point that we really don't even see it. Regular tv broadcasts look great as does our blu-ray. Hard to be happier with a tv.

                Just a simple 2ndary TV in a bedroom for guests... it is working out well. The particular need was for a Smart TV to stream in various Video / Movie resource sites.

                Pros

                Cons

                • Did not meet expectations
                • Expensive
                • no live streaming via flash
                • on screen keyboard is inefficient
                • Sound quality

                Best Uses

                  I made the biggest mistake to not fully read the specifications. This TV does not allow you to use flash player independently. They embed the flash in their youtube app. If you are browsing the net, you cannot watch live streams through the browser which I thought that was the main purpose of the internet TV. ...I cannot stream from my laptop to the TV via wireless means. It is just a simple HD TV....there is nothing extra in the internet app. I wasted my money. Who wants to write emails on a TV remote keyboard???

                        • audio output quirks (see review)

                        Best Uses

                          I wanted a smart LED TV for a while and I'm glad I went for it. I had another big name flat TV (LCD), which is in my BR now and I still love it. But my new Viera is quite amazing. First, with regard to the classic question -- plasma, LCD or LED? -- I went to stores and asked the in-store "specialists" what kind of TV was the best, I got the typical long-winded analysis every time: "Well the advantages to plasma are abc... whereas the LCD is good because xyz... then LED..." blah blah blah. The only answer to the "which techology is best -- LCD, LED or Plasma is: LED HAS THE BEST PICTURE QUALITY, HANDS DOWN, NO QUESTION!! Just get an LED TV. The picture quality of my new Viera is unreal. It's almost like 3D without the glasses. It's practically disturbing and it's an entirely new viewing experience (was for me). This television is physically thin, lightweight, and with a 42" screen, replaced a 40" LCD TV, which is 3 years old. Physically, the TV set itself is smaller than the older 40" LCD even though the viewable screen is 2" bigger. Setup is easy and with the included apps (which are also easy to set up), after spending another $60 for a high-gain antenna, I'm eliminating cable TV. There are things I miss about cable for sure, but you gain more than saving $150/month payable to Cable Rip-Off Company USA. You get tons of content from Netflix, Hulu+Plus, and Amazon (get Prime for more unlimited content, as well as all the same on Demand movies you have on cable). I cannot overemphasize the picture quality. The speakers even do a good job (however I'd suggest connecting the audio to a more powerful sound system) but the TVs audio is very good nonetheless. The only criticism I have is that the digital audio is *not* controlled by the Volume control. So while hooked into my stereo, I need to operate volume control (on TV and stereo) separately. Plus, the TV only has digital output -- no analog cables, unfortunately. So I had to buy a digital converter. There is a slight audio lag with *some* streaming shows and movies. I am a tech kinda guy and I have been fiddling with the settings and there is no volume control for the digital audio output -- period. Not the end of the world but while watching Netflix, for every movie I need to check the audio output and set it to Stereo (as opposed to the default, Dolby 5.1). If not, the audio comes out of the TV only. Set it to stereo and the audio is routed out of the auxiliary sound system. I wish the sound would get routed through both and controlled by the Volume. I hope our friends at Panasonic hear this and put out a firmware patch! There is also an remote control app (for iPhone and Android) that could not be easier to set up. It is extremely well designed and makes input (especially app setup, which requires email and password) even easier. It works flawlessly and is extremely intuitive. It's like having a second remote with even more features. At any rate, get an LED and definitely consider this model. You'll love it more than you think and by eliminating cable, you will have paid for your beautiful new television in about 5 months!
