Deborah, Grangemouth

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic tv, had high expectations as have bought panansonic before and this tv did not let us down. Excellent picture quality, sound a bit tinny at first but when adjusted the bass superb. Easy set-up, plug in and follow on screen menu, could not be any easier. TV looks fantastic, my Dad cannot stop going on about how classy it looks and what a clear picture, he's getting one for himself!!
TV and stand bought together for a great price, definately good value for money. We are delighted with our new TV.

Gareth, Herts High spec fanatic

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic product. I watch through my Virigin + box which upscales all channels to HD and all programs looks great on it. HD content looks outstanding. A great TV.
Very quiet too.
Bad points:
Minor bad point - the third HDMI port is located on the front of the panel. That's all I can think of!

Manufacturer's Description

NEW! 42" Class (41.6 " Diagonal) Widescreen VIERA Plasma 1080p HDTV with tru2way™ technology, Increased Native Contrast Ratio, PC Input, New Anti-Reflective Filter, Deep Color Technology, Game Mode, Built-In SD Card Slot, 4 HDMI Inputs and VIERA Link® HDAVI Control

This revolutionary HDTV lets you enjoy full digital cable services without the cost and clutter of an external cable receiver box!**

Tru2way™technology lets you eliminate the cable box **
Tru2way is a new technology being introduced by major cable service operators. This same technology is built-in to the VIERA PZ80Q Series of HDTVs — allowing you to receive full interactive programming from your tru2way-enabled local cable company without having to rent a traditional cable receiver box. This means no more monthly box rental fees, no need for two separate remote controls, and less extra equipment to clutter your home theater setup. Also, if you move to another tru2way-enabled area, you’ll be able to use your TV with no equipment changes required.

  • Cable service subscription still required. Not all cable systems are compatible with this feature. Please check with your cable provider to confirm availability of service.

Enjoy Deep Black Levels with Outstanding Contrast
The 1,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio creates deep, robust blacks and faithfully reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.

Watch Fast-Moving Scenes with Clear, Vivid Resolution
The 480Hz Sub-Field Drive self-illuminating plasma display features fast moving picture resolution, so you enjoy smooth, clear motion in sporting events and action movies.

Network Your AV Devices, Quickly and Easily
With VIERA Link™, you can control your compatible Panasonic DVD recorder, Blu-ray Disc™ player, home theater sound system and HD camcorder all with a single remote. HDMI cables make set-up quick and easy; VIERA Link even automatically sets your DVD recorder via an Auto Preset Download function.

Share Your Digital Photos on the Big Screen
The built-in SD memory card slot makes it easy to instantly display your digital photos on a large, high-def display screen. It’s a better way of sharing your memories with friends and family!
