Customer Review

on 31 January 2010
Ordered the 42" Neo PDP Plasma from Panasonic after checking Which reviews where their latest range fills the top 5 best buy spots.
Set the screen up without any drama, running in my Panasonic DVD HDD Recorder on the HDMI, Virgin Media box on the Scart and Nintendo Wii on the other scart.
The set replaced an old 32" Panasonic CRT, which served us well, but with a new house purchase in process and VAT heading back up to 17.5% the timing was right for an upgrade.

The picture and sound is lovely. Easy to set up to personal preferences and everything works intuitively and sensibly. The Viera link to the HDD Recorder is cool too and allows you to do away with the DVD remote control and run everything through the TV.

Sound was improved by connecting up my DTS / Pro logic amp and 5.1 sound system using the TV's optical output and DTS movies on DVD now rock the walls of the house.

Picture is smooth and deep. Colours are vivid - especially noticeable on CBeebies, when the 2 year old is watching. Movies have a pseudo 3D quality with this size screen too, although I could have got away with a 38" if one were available.

Went for the LAN enabled set too, which shows promise although is nothing but a gimmick right now - Viera cast needs more content. Will be setting up the Freesat once it gets re-installed in the new house next month.

Another cracking job from Panasonic.
