Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still Happy I got this set last year in Mar. Absolutely no problems till now. Replaced a heavy not so good Polaroid. I'm very impressed w/blacks, I don't care about the sound because it's connected to a simple but effective surround system. Installation was a breeze, as I already had a full motion wall bracket, and lifting this set was a one man operation. August 22, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great first LCD HDTV This was my first LCD HDTV that I have purchased. The picture quality is great, the features are great although I wish it had an additional antenna input for an external antenna along with the cable connection. Other than that, this is a great tv and I enjoy it each and every day! I just recently purchased a Panasonic Blue Ray DVD player and the vierra link feature is awesome. When I turn the tv on, the DVD player will come on and I can use just one remote, either the one that came with the TV or the DVD player which is very, very nice! I reccomend this tv to anyone that is looking for a good priced, feature packed LCD HDTV. March 23, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Viewed many low-end 32" TV's in stores and this unit was 2nd best in picture quality of all compared, but costs much less than the unit with best picture. Sound quality is rather poor - disappointed with this aspect. occasionally, TV goes blank, requiring a power cycle to restore - this is troubling, but only has occurred 4 times in 6 month period and not recently. TV is light on features - hence, I would recommend it if it were to be used as a secondary TV, but would not recommend it if it were to be used in a home entertainment center. March 16, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive Set. This is the first HDTV I'd ever bought. It replaced a 27 inch, 13 year old analogue set. The features and ease of operation, make this a great set. All of the consumer electronics (TV, Stereo, DVD Recorder, DVD Player) are all Panasonic. I have owned the set since May, 2009. The lack of analogue stereo output/headphone jack is a definite missing feature. Wayno October 22, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great HDTV TV for the price I used to work for a company that made very high end commercial video projectors that costs in the 10-100 thousand dollar range. The picture on this Panasonic LCD is amazing, especially considering it's price. Great product and a beautiful picture, October 21, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product. Picture quality is exceptional and the audio is amazingly good in my bedroom. I would have liked a headphone jack or analog out but all in all a really exceptional TV! September 21, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by No satisfied I purchased this TV on 5/30/2009 for late night no more than 2 hours use per day. I am very upset that this TV set was broken with less than four months of use. September 12, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great TV Looked at all the 26"-32" LCD's at BBuy & this had the best picture & style of all of them. This model also was the ONLY one out of about 10 other models that the viewing angle of the picture did not change the color, contrast, etc.(thanks to the IPS panel). All others were "washed out". There's NOTHING I don't like about this TV. Excellent! May 25, 2009
