Good: Great picture quality, sound good too, good features.
Comment: Love this 42" TV, the picture quality is fantastic, good sharpness, colours, and blacks, upscales SD very well, HD is excellent, from both my Sky+ HD box, to Blu ray, and built in Freeview. At first, we were disappointed with the sound, but after tweaking around with the sound, now find it very good, with an excellent dialogue. Overall an excellent tv for our home cinema.
Good: Graet Screen and Good Value
Bad: Lack of analogue audio out
Comment: Great TV, even better to get the 42 inch for the same price as the 39 inch model at John Lewis.
Only downside for me is lack of analogue audio output, my old TV's sound went through my stereo into two different rooms. I will have to look at connecting the headphones output to the stereo.
U Tube, I Player integration is great.
Good: Picture quality
Comment: In short, the maximisation of screen has clearly impacted on space and thus quality of speakers. High frequency noises such as laughter, screaming, action - pretty much everything other than docs or news becomes awkward to listen to. Sounds a bit weird, but it slowly eats away at you starting with a 'nah,it'll be ok' thinking the picture quality would make up for it...which it almost does. My previous tv was a 32 viera plasma, sound quality was ok but atleast I didn't have to turn it down depending on what I was watching. Awaiting a hdmi connector so I can plug it into my stereo. Disappointed, if I knew then what I I know now I wouldn't have bought it.
Comment: Trouble is Panasonic customer support and there ability to keep products up-to-date is appauling !
My 2012 GT50 Plasma could easily run the new Viera interface and have a update for video in the EPG..... But it no doibt never will.
Unlike Sony and Samsung etc, Panasonic leave you as a customer in the dirt when it comes to product support and keeping your stuff up to date.
