Reviews

TC-L42U25 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bang for the buck, but..... We've owned this TV for 7 months now. Here are a few things I've noticed. PROS - Price - Excellent sound quality - Great picture for DVD quality movies and 1080 broadcasts. CONS - Motion jitter when watching older film shot movies (480p). - No detailed description of broadcast TV programs. Just the title. Our other TV gives a nice description. - Can't get firmware update to work. - Only audio output is optical. Older amps don't have that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had no idea This was my first attempt at purchasing a LCD TV. I had a Panasonic 25" TV when I was 13. I remember loving the sound and picture. Fast forward 24 years later I wanted the same effect. I looked all over other brands appealed but I didn'tget that HA AH Thats's It! This TV gave me that reaction as I looked around. I've had it a little under a year. I have not had any problem with it, it's user friendly and easy to learn. I reccommended this TV a good friends they are proud owners as well. You'll be as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp, crisp, clean I got this just after the 2011 superbowl. Wife objected to the purchase. Now she wants one in the bedroom. We both love the picture. Sound is better than expected (but is best with the surround sound system). Laptop interface is confusing (for Skyping), but manageable after fiddling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Genuine review I got this TV for very good price. I mostly use it for gaming and i am completely satisfied with it. However there are some minor drawbacks which should have been rectified. Takes lot of time to display the picture once you turn on the TV, Audio is low and in fast moving sequences there is blur on edges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 120Hz ? I thought 120Hz was not suppose to have a burr effect ? Well this TV does around the edges of objects in motion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I've had this TV since June and I love it. The picture is beautiful. Everything I watch from movies to sports to cable is simply crystal clear. I know there are a lot of choices out there and the research can be exhausting, but if you want a simple to use, great looking set with a beautiful picture than allow me to suggest this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great integration with Panasonic stereo, great picture, sports and Blu-ray look fantastic. Just wish the contrast was higher,50,000 should be minimum, think it might have made this The best TV in it's price range. Great buy
