Reviews

TC-L42U12 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This TV is amazing. The picture is absolutely stunning. The colors are very accurate, and everything is bright, crisp and clear. It was amazingly easy to set up...pull out of box, screw on stand, turn on, drool over picture for hours and hours on end. I did quite a bit of research before I bought this tv, and it was definitely the best deal I came across. I know and trust Panasonic, and I know I'll be enjoying this TV for years to come! If you are considering this tv, and are on the fence, jump! You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic Has Outdone Themselves I have own Panasonic TV's for a long years. I patiently waiting for Panasonic to come out with a big screen 42' LCD. I did not want Plasma because I play video games and wanted an LCD. The Picture is beautiful. The glossy black bezel is luxurious and the overall quality is excellent. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set - Low Price This TV has great clarity and picture for the price, I compared dozens before buying this one. Also purchased the SC-PT670 theater system to boost audio quality, an easy plug in with an optical digital cable for super sound. The TV audio is okay, but much better now linked to the awesome theater system. Please be aware that this TV doesn't have RCA type outputs for audio, you must connect with the special optical digital cable.
