Customer Reviews of Panasonic VIERA TC-P42X3 42" Plasma HDTV 720p 600Hz
We're happy with this TV and would buy it again if we had to do it over. We bought an Samsung 32" LCD around the same time and like the picture quality of the Panasonic plasma better. Glare is really bad during the day because of all the windows in our living room; but this keeps us from overdosing on TV! Our favorite feature is the built-in Netflix. We used Netflix via the Wii on our old TV, but the Wii wouldn't output in HiDef. On the Panasonic Netflix plays in HD and we "love love love" it! That said though, the Netflix program on the Panasonic is not as good as the Netflix program on the Wii. On the Panasonic there is no search function and navigation is slow. Also, Panasonic's Netflix will quit occasionally; it just disappears, no "blue screen" like on a computer, no error messages, no locked picture; it just quits and the TV plays regular channels like Netflix was never running. When it crashes, Netflix doesn't remember where you were in your movie; you have to start the movie over and fast forward. I hope Panasonic will update their Netflix software.
