Panasonic Viera TC-L42U25


The Panasonic TC-L42U25 ($899 MSRP) is a 42-inch LCD that falls short of the competition for its price range. Though it performed well in color and motion, it may not be the best choice for a high-end home theater system. The TC-L42U25 also struggles...

Panasonic TC-L42U25 Review – 42-inch LCD HDTV


This model from Panasonic misses out on the LED backlights and is a true LCD TV. But this 42-inch set has the full HD 1080p resolution which is vital for watching movies in the Blu-ray disc player. This 1080p resolution offers much better picture...

In short a good TV that could have been a great TV


if you will buy this tv i suggest you go to before you decide

Could be better


Nice unit with exception of speakers,

Great Picture,nice looking unit, easy setup

Sound quality is less then expected. Speakers are facing down so if you use the included mount the sound bounces off the furniture, garbled hard to understand. Fast motion on screen could be better

correction for previous review


in regards to another reviewer concerning the PC output resolution: a 16:9 aspect ratio is not the same ratio as 1280:1024. however, 1366:768 is approximately the same ratio and that is why the 1280:1024 doesn't fit the screen without blank space.

Great Picture


Arrived in perfect condition and very quickly. Newegg = AA++++ Highly recommended place to shop.

Great picture quality, always had a great likeness for Panasonic, very durable and in my experience great quality
