Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-P42X60B 42-inch Freeview HD Ready Plasma TV (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Excellent picture - more realistic than LED sets. Nice solid construction - who really wants a flimsy ultra thin set? Good speakers - much better than I was expecting. My one gripe so far (only had it a week) is with auto aspect. When a program is broadcast in 4:3, as so many older ones are, this set shows it in either 16:9 or Justified which simply stretches our the sides which is not really any better. You can use the remote to change to 4:3 but I would have expected a modern TV to show all proper formats on the auto setting - which is what my old CRT Panasonic did.

I set mine to 16:9 as opposed to Auto. I am not keen on the aspect shifting of Auto. The 16:9 doesn't quite stretch the sides of 4:3 as much Justified. I agree totally with all the positives in your review. I found the picture quality improved further after a couple of weeks of use.
