This review is from: Panasonic Smart VIERA TX-P42GT30B 42-inch Full HD 1080p 3D 600Hz Internet-Ready Plasma TV with Freeview HD and Freesat HD (Installation Recommended) (Electronics)
Firstly a massive thank you to Amazon, I have used their service many times but my order of this television was a perecft example of how excellent the customer service is.
I have had 2 of these televisions the first of which arrived was faulty, a loose connection on one of the internal speakers which resulted in a loud buzzing / vibration noise everything the volume was above 20%. I reported this to amazon and within 15 minutes of the phone call a second item was on order on my account and I had received all the details required in order to return the original. The replacement arrived less than 48hours after I had reported fault. A*
The TV itself is a very good example of Panansonic's investment into Plasma technology. I have so far only used the out of the box settings, SKY HD picture is excellent (Football and SKY 1 / Atlantic channels viewed so far) Blu ray play back is also superb with excellent nature colour and deep blacks.
The set feels very well made and has an excellent finish. There are many connections to suite everyones needs. 1 small negative point would be that the HDMI ports could be slightly better placed. The use of right angle adapters may be required to prevent the cables showing at the side of the television.
As with all plasma's it is worth considering that the picture on this set is not as bright as the LCD/LED televisions so if your room is very bright I would consider looking at those instead.
The remote and user menus are intuitive to operate and are responsive.
Not tried the 3D or Interactive features, but so far very pleased with my purchase.
