5.0 out of 5 stars Takes television to the next level!, 27 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-P42ST50B 42-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 3D Ready Plasma TV with Freeview and Smart Viera - Black (New for 2012) (Electronics)
This is a highly impresive television. I'll say from the outset that it has replaced an 11 year old flat screen CRT TV so there was always going to be a major improvement, but the TX-P42ST50B has considerably exceeded my expectations.

With a HD signal (via Sky) the picture is clear and vibrant. Blacks are inky and deep providing depth and contrast. Detail is immaculate with motion captured smoothly. SD signals look better than you would expect - quite watchable.

With BlueRays the image quality improves further and provides for particularly excellent 3D images.

The internet connectivity works well through the built in wifi and even with a fairly modest broadband connection provides HD content through the BBC iplayer and surpisingly good quality through youtube.

As you would expect with such a thin TV, sound quality is good, but does not pack a huge punch in the lower frequencies. Home cinema buffs would want to use a home cinema system with this.

The TV looks impressive and the rolled silver edges (which you cannot see very well in the images used on amazon) look classy and reduce the visual impact of the TV - much less intrusive than earlier generations of plasma and LCD TVs.

Very Highly Recommended!
