Reviews

TC-L42E50 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this set due to it "being the best" as per store employee. Out of the box the sound quality is very poor and lacks any volume, just to hear anything it must be almosted maxed out. I then wanted to hook up external sound and found out that the only sound output was OPTICAL OUT which must be connected to a newer surround sound system. I am now having to buy a new surround system so to achieve some quality sound at a hearable volume. If I had known that the higher cost of this set, as compared to other sets, would cost me even more later then I would have ran the other way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing picture!! What an amazing picture, subtleties in textures and colors is awesome...picture has a remarkable depth and quality that crackles with sharpness. Only slight drawback is the sound quality, this great TV deserves better quality speakers....hardly any bass...got a Panasonic surround theater system that is incredible, model XCSH170...and at a very good price...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE! I returned my 3 week old Samsung 40 inch LED for this one. No regrets and I love the tv. Easy to set up, great value. What I love, plenty of HDMI. Picture is very nice with lots of adjustment options. Better than my 3yr old 40 inch LCD Sony. The other cool feature is the ability to sit at side angles and not loose picture viewing quality. What I don't love is the sound and I have to choose either componet or composite not one of each as should be. Also am disappointed to discover that internet is restricted to Panasonic apps only. You'd think that they could develope an app that would allow you to go to web sites of your chooseing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I love everything about this TV except for the lack of input and output options.. the component in, and RCA in, are bundled together into one odd adapter so you can use only one either or. And the only audio out is via optical. So if the rest of your equipment is not HDMI and or optical, you're going to have some trouble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good--Unless you Want Use AudioOut Good TV. Good Picture. My only true complaint if that is has a ton of jacks, but the Audio Out is Optial Audio--no RCA jacks for analog audio. This would not be bad, but there is no converter to add. As a result, all audio devices (in my case headphones) that are analog are useless with this TV. Picture quality is great though. Lots of HDMI jacks for easy connection. Streaming internet apps is easy. Using Netflix mostly. Pandora is easy too, but you can't use your analog speakers to get sound out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from C.A.T.S. Standard mode has default as C.A.T.S. on The picture was so bad I thought the TV was defective. Other brands allow scanned channels to be disabled for channel surf. This models does not. You have to enable them in favorites - and favorites only allows for 30 channels. antenna/cable-in connector is pointed down and very close to the screen body. Need very small fingers to thread the cable onto the cable-in
