Best picture you can get for the money,
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 TV has the advantage of having a very good picture with just the out of the box settings alone - you will not have to spend hours fiddling trying to get it right. I have tried other brands such as Samsung and their sets have presets which, in my opinion, are nowhere near as useful and accurate as this screen's.
Black levels are extremely good and gives the picture a realistic and natural look that LED screens just can't match. Yes they look brighter and more vibrant on first look but in a home environment you realise that, if you want quality and decent motion handling, plasma is the way to go. This TV makes even SD pictures look good but play a bluray on it and it's stunning.
The ONLY thing I don't like about it is that I'll have to watch all my blurays and DVDs again because this TV makes them look so much better....and that will take ages!
