    Great TV. Great Value

    I purchased this tv for our living room and couldn't be happier. Great picture, great sound and looks great on our Hometrends Kobi TV stand that we recently purchased at Walmart.

    freakin awesome!

    Honestly exceeded my expectations, the picture is amazing. Anybody who can tell the difference between this 720 and a 1080 tv has way better eyesight than me. HD channels are crystal clear with just an antenna hooked up to the cable jack. Blu rays will blow you away! So glad i didnt settle for a 32' inch lcd, paying $100-150 more was well worth it for a 42' plasma. Screen is huge and plenty big for me. I think unless you have money to just throw away this tv is a no brainer. The sound is way better than i thought it would be. Was planning on buying a soundbar but not sure i need it anymore. I like that you can store picture settings for all your connections, great for my xbox! Honestly the only bad thing i can say about this tv is it only has 2 hdmi connections but thats a pretty small complaint. With walmarts super cheap warranty extension this was the best deal out there. Buy this tv! You'll love it.

    Panasonic 42" 720p 600Hz Plasma HDTV, TC-P42C2

    This is a beautiful HDTV Plasma. Couldn't be happier. First Panasonic product I've ever owned & so far, it's been great. The value is incredible at $499.00! I also purchased the Walmart extended warranty, just in case. Hung it up on the wall, in my master bedroom & the picture looks great from every angle in the room. You can't go wrong, by buying this one, if you can get one, before they sell out? Good Luck!

    LOVE THIS TV!!!!

    It is a great buy, good price, good size, good quality! I love, love, love it. I am so happy with my purchase. I really did my research prior to purchasing this TV and it is excellent. The only downside is the control (it is hard to see what buttons you are pressing, especially with the lights off). I wish the control had a light button.

    BEST value in tv's

    This tv has an awesome pic quality, will do 1080i, due to the richness of plasma color, high contrast and 600hz refresh it absolutely looks like 1080p. Cant say for sound because I have surround and dont care what its sound is like. But the 600hz refresh rate makes the motion on this tv so crisp and it doesnt have the annoying effect of the inner shading of peoples faces moving slower than the outline like earlier panasonic plasma. HOWEVER, BUYER BEWARE if you have a game system and for any reason what so ever there are images that stay in place(for example the xbox 360 symbol at the bottom right corner) you will get burn in, which so far an mine is only visible if the screen is black and i am looking at it in the dark. This tv does have a "wipe" function to help eliminate these light burn ins but I havent tried it yet. So final words of wisdom...Excellent quality tv, but if you are going to have it just sitting on a disc or system menu for more than a minute either turn the tv off for the few minutes or consider lcd. And have a second person when you pick up because this tv isnt light weight like lcd and the box is bulky.

    Outstanding TV

    The Panasonic I bought at an extremely excellent price is a top-of-the-line product. The picture is exceptional although I do not have a system for HD. It was easy to set up. It was delivered by freight and when it was damaged in transit, it was replaced immediately, and I was given a reduction because it did not arrive as indicated. Walmart is suuperior in its shipping charges and in its return policy. This television set is an indication of WalMart's quality products.

    Amazing, Even Beyond Expectations

    Incredible picture! I rarely post reviews, but felt I had to voice my experience w/this set after 8 months of ownership. I researched a LOT before deciding on this Panasonic, and I couldn't be happier. I compared the picture quality to several sets owned by friends, and this set is as good, & often (usually way!) better than sets costing much more (many of the other sets were 1080, but there's NO difference at 42" in my opinion) On the 720 vs 1080 - I had read 'professional' reviews stating that at 42" or less, it really doesn't make much (if any) difference, and I agree. The picture on this set is stunning; seriously, it's better looking than many sets costing MUCH more. Frankly, I had doubts, but had a budget, so I went with the Panasonic based on the reviews & attractive price, and I am constantly amazed by the picture. Unless you want to spend $2K or more, or you really need a larger set, BUY THIS SET! I gave this 5 stars across the board except for the sound, and that's really no fault of the set. Built in speakers are never that great. Compared to several others, the speakers in this set are fine... but for really good sound, you'll want to run the audio thru your home stereo, Panasonic's 'Sound Bar', or a full surround system. On it's own, and compared to other sets, there is NO issue with the sound quality - there's just room for improvement w/external speakers. You may read that Plasma sets run hotter and use more energy. Yes, it's a bit warmer than LCD or LED sets, but it's certainly NOT 'hot' by ANY means. As for electricity - if you use this set in your home, for 'normal' amounts of time, I don't think you'll notice any change in your electric bill - we certainly haven't. SO, I think these are nit-picky things propagated by those who want you to buy a different set. :-) Set us is a breeze, attaching our stereo system, BluRay player, and Wii were no issue at all; the controls are easy to use and quite intuitive - all in all, a VERY easy set to live with. Definitely recommended - especially at such a great price!
    I liked mine so well, that I bought one for my dad too.

    Very Good Product

    Bought a 50" Panasonic a few years ago and have not had any kind of problems. Bought this 42" for my bedroom and it has performed just as good as my other one. Great picture at any angle, plenty of inputs, easy to use. I will never buy a flat screen TV that is not made by Panasonic. My TV's, DVD Players and Blu-Ray Players are all Panasonic.

    42" Panasonic Plasma 720p

    I own several flat screen tv's and two of which are 1080P. This Panasonic has just as good a picture
