"I've Been Waiting For This One and WOW!!"4.5 starson by jwobkk
Pros: Value, great picture, ease of use, size, sound
Cons: None so far
Summary: I almost bought the TH42PX50U but read about this baby at CES and decided to hold off. I'm so glad that I did. The value is tremendous, I was going to pay $3,000 for the previous model and got this one for $2,375 through Circuitcity.com. I purchased through the United Mileage Plus mall and will be getting frequent flier miles as an added bonus.
The picture is tremendous, Discovery HD channel in particular is spectacular. Others have complained about the sound but I have no issues with it. It sounds excellent to me, plenty clear and loud. The presentation of the set has improved from last year; it's noticeably thinner and I like the silver framing better than the black.
My buddy has the 43 inch Pioneer and this set is such a better value. Honestly, the picture of this Panasonic can go toe to toe with the more expensive Pioneer.
This is a terrific plasma TV. Well done Panasonic.Updated
I continue to enjoy this TV a ton. The Masters was spectacular in HD. I love having my friends rave about my TV when they come over. Yeah, and Sopranos every Sunday in HD isn't too shabby either.
