2 out of 5 eggsPanasonic black level PROBLEMS!

Pros: Fantastic picture and all that.


Google "panasonic black levels" and you'll find some information related to Panasonic plasma black levels rising DRAMATICALLY after a preset amount of hours. Panasonic has flip-flopped on the issue, initially stating it was due to an overly aggressive voltage regulation problem. They recanted and now state it's "normal".

Your blacks will go from dark, dark black to a greyish color. Be warned before purchasing plasmas from them!

5 out of 5 eggsConnectivity thoughts

Pros: Picture quality, blacks, clarity, ability to connect with computer for home theater. PC hdmi to panel hdmi at 1920x1080. Tuner for external antenna of exceptional quality with signal strength meter. I've had this panel for about 7 months now and did buy from newegg, their delivery arrangement was on time and with careful handling of the panel. Would highly recomend this panel and the purchase from newegg.

Cons: none worth mentioning

Other Thoughts: I've connected a computer dedicated to home theater to this panel. Via HDMI. Using a high end video card this panel gives an amazing picture at full 1080p from the computer, this arrangement also gives me the availability to enjoy video streaming from the web from places like netfxxx. I did purchase a good dvd/blue-ray player software for this, they usually are under $100. The other reason was to share my experience with a newly installed external antenna and this panel. It provided me with a signal strength meter that was very helpful in pointing the antenna. The quality of picture using the external antenna is exceptional.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat TV, When It Works!!!

Pros: I have the TH-42PZ700U which is similar to this model. I've owned mine for 3 years and 2 months now and love this TV. The 42" screen size @ 1080p is unreal and clearly has the best picture of anything out there on the market that I've seen to date!

Cons: Price is to high for a TV that will only last 2 -3 years max. Now, call me old fashion, but all my previous CRT TVs lasted 10 years+ without any problems and didn't cost half as much.

I paid $1500 and just barely got 3 years out of it before breaking due to cheap Chinese electronic components used in it. It also cost almost the same price as a new TV to have it fixed! This problem isn't isolated to Panasonic either, I have a dead Samsung & Sony too and they also use third rate capacitors, transistors, diodes, etc. I doesn't matter whether there LCD or Plasma they are all Chinese junk!

I think Pioneer uses USA made electronic components but the price also reflects it in a major way. Who can afford a Pioneer just so you can get a TV that doesn't fail in a couple of years .... definitely not me!

Other Thoughts: My advice is this....

Buy the cheapest off-brand LCD or plasma you can find because all of them are a ticking time bomb waiting to fail! This way, when it quits working, you won't be out that much in the way of cash!

If you don't believe me .... why do you think all these TV manufacturers only offer a 1 or 2 year warranty? If they were a quality product as they claim, wouldn't they tend to stand behind their work for more than 1-2 years?

5 out of 5 eggsLovin it.

Pros: Motion looks great on this TV.
Great Picture.
Easily updated firmware.
Stock sound was nice (while i used it).
The Price (I bought it on sale too)
When set correctly, Great picture quality.

Cons: I found it difficult to tweak the picture settings to really get the best out of it.
The presets were ALL too dark, and Vivid was a little too vivid.
Would be nice if the Vieralink was wireless, but they'll get there.
Kinda silly the PC connection is on the side... for those of us who want it always hooked up, having it in the back would have been a little more convenient.
The picture quality tuning is not all you might desire, most TV's i've used, even 5-8 years old have more customizable features than this.

Other Thoughts: I shopped long and hard for a Tv to mount in my room and finally settled on this one. After i ordered it i got disturbed by how many people were saying the color qualities were really lacking, but i disagree, if tuned correctly it looks great. The THX mode seems pretty useless to most, it's suppose to replicate exactly how the THX tuners meant it to be when they made movies... everything ends up looking like it went through a dark green filter though. The firmware update does modify it a bit, Panasonic claims they tweaked it, but I'm not sure helped much.
Anyway, I bought it at 839$. For that price anyway, this TV is an absolute steal.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome score

Pros: Fantastic picture, black blacks. THX mode brings out the best in my media pc and ps3! Vieracast is a neat item but not necessary. Great color right off the bat, little calibration necessary!

Cons: Waited until 2010 to buy one!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV

Pros: Great picture and plenty of hook ups. Easy to use remote and menu system. Quick setup and great picture out of the box. Good sound. Nice looking. Reflections not realy a problem. Internet conection is cool.

Cons: Some reflections in high light levels.

Other Thoughts: I researched TV's a lot before deciding on this one. The picture just looked better then most and the features couldn't be matched. With that said I wasn't disapointed this TV is awsome. Movies, tv programs, and games look great. The blacks are superb as our the colors. Like I stated I haven't realy noticed to many reflectoins execpt for if watching a very dark movie at night and having a very bright light on. Blue Rays work great and the vieracast is usefull. I have watched a few HD movies from AmazononDemand and am very impressed. Hopefully they will make netflix compatiable with it this year. I found information online that stated if you own a plasma not to run any of the settings above 50% for the first 100-200hrs of use. It's suppose to reduce the risk of burn in. Would deffinetly buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: This plasma provides such a beautiful picture. Some reviews complained that it didn't produce a a bright enough picture, but it looks absolutely stunning to me. It does take a little tuning, and whether THX mode being on creates a better picture is really going to be a personal preference. I'm completely satisfied with this TV and would definitely buy a Panasonic again in the future if it looks this good. Vieracast has some really neat features too.

Cons: The stand doesn't swivel... Seriously. That's all I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I looked at the lower end model Panasonic 42" plasma at Best Buy. It was noticeably darker than the surrounding LCDs, but the quality of the picture was so much better that I started researching the Panasonic line more. The G10 has a few more features but both TVs provide a great value.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Picture

Pros: All I can say is WOW!! Great picture. This replaced a 2 year old 32" Sammy LCD. I just bought a Blue Ray player a month ago and was very well pleased with the HD picture on the Sammy. This plasma just blows it away.

Cons: Can't think of any other than I wish they were cheaper, but Newegg had the best deal.

Other Thoughts: Took a little longer to get delivered than I had hoped for. In the carrier's defense, the weather in the midwest has been lousy for truckers as of late. Overall a very pleasant experience which is the norm for anything I buy from Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Plasma

Pros: Amazing picture. Youtube features work pretty well, if you can handle the phone-style keyboard. The SD slot on the side of this was actually a much better feature than I initially thought it would be. Looking at pictures on a big screen with a group of people is a unique experience, and the large, vibrant display puts you right back into the moment the picture was taken.

Cons: Price, I guess. It's not the cheapest TV out there. Also, regarding the firmware, I'm hoping at some point they'll add functionality. Getting instant weather information is fantastic, and YouTube is well, YouTube, but I'd love to see perhaps a facebook module that lets you browse picture galleries.

Other Thoughts: I spent a lot of time researching televisions before deciding on this one. As I said, this isn't the cheapest TV out there, but it certainly outclasses the other TVs I looked at in this price range. I've had no buyers remorse, and to be quite honest, I kind of want to hug my TV whenever I get home. It's that nice.
