Good points:
This tv produces a superb picture. I was disappointed when I first switched on the tv as any action or sports scenes were blurred. I invested in a decent scart lead and immediately noticed the difference. I am delighted with the picture and the its design also adds to the room. I have no hesitation in recommending this t.v.
Bad points:
If I was to be really picky, I think the speakers could offer more depth. The sound quality is fine, but it does not meet the same high standards of the picture.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Overall styling is fantastic - I still enjoy looking at the TV its self, as well as the image shown on the TV. Remote control is very easy to use, and menus are very clear.
EPG is one of the best I have come across, and speed of operation is good too.
Although this is not a 1080P HD tv, the picture quality is far better than my previous Hitachi which WAS 1080P !
It looks fantastic on a canterlever stand with black glass to match the TV. It gives the effect that the TV is floating.
Great value TV. If you are looking for a 42" Plasma, get a Panasonic and ENJOY.
Bad points:
only one "niggle" and that is when you select the EPG, it cuts off the TV picture and sound so you cant "scan" for other programms whilst still watching/listening to the current program. There are other means around this problem but this only gives you "now and next" for other channels

Good points:
Very easy set up,great picture from the word go
Bad points:
Need to read the reviews - it's not a bad point but it's easy to make a mistake and buy too big a screen fro you room. Check the recommended viewing distance before buying

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Perfect picture with good sound quality, you won't be disappointed with the quality.
Bad points:
Difficult to get to controls at the back of the TV if it is placed on a wall, controls would have been better placed at the sides.
