Panasonic TC-P42C2 Review


In case you are not among the people to care about 3D capabilities, wireless options, and superior resolution, you may have just found the best plasma TV to suit your taste. Panasonic TC-P42C2 is great for people looking for a non-frills plasma TV that...

Decent blacks, Affordable price, Not so bad connectivity for the price

Unimpressive design, Subpar standard definition performance, Inferior 1080p/24 performance

Panasonic TC-P42C2 Review – 42-inch Plasma HDTV


This is an entry-level HDTV from Panasonic which has only the basic technology, and is available without the much talked about 3D and Viera Cast features. The salient features of this TV happen to be the 2,000,000:1 native contrast ratio, multiple...

The energy consumption of this TV is pretty low. It complies with the Energy Star 4.0 specifications which is quite stringent. Besides the NeoPDP panel also helps in providing optimum brightness while conserving energy. With all the basic features and...

Panasonic TC-P46C2 Review – 46-inch Plasma HDTV


Panasonic has been developing Plasma TVs with great confidence and this particular model happens to be one of the more basic ones lacking both the highlights of this year's HDTVs. Short of both 3D technology and Viera Cast, this TV will suffice for...

Although Panasonic has not included the Viera Cast feature, it has kept intact the Viera Image Viewer and the Viera Link technologies. With the Viera Image viewer, you can click as many pictures as you want on your camera and show them to your friends...

Panasonic TC-P50C2 Review – 50-inch Plasma HDTV


Panasonic has not given much emphasis to decreasing the depth of the Plasma TVs this year. The C2 series too is as thick as 3.5” which does not speak much in favor of the TV being mounted on the walls. But the Neo PDP panels have more than made up for...

Together with the 3D technology, Panasonic has also not included the Viera Cast feature with this series. So you are not able to have a glimpse of the Internet or stream content from it. However, the Viera Image Viewer and the Viera Link features are...

Consumer review (



this is not a quality product, i would recomend the 43" samsung 720 TV, i found it for 470$, a much nicer looking TV and 1 inch larger for only 20$ extra.


Showed up in a thin cardbord box, not the safe panasonic box i expected. Was already on its stand as if it was on display at some point and had been taken off the shelf and then sent off. because of the bad packaging i discoverd a large dent in the...

2nd Panasonic Plasma


This TV appears to be much better than my old Panasonic Plasma TV which performed flawlessly for 5+ years and still is going great. For what I pain I am one happy camper and would say for the price this is the best of the best. Since my new...

Great TV. Picture is much nicer than the 60Hz 50" I bought some 5 years ago for $1499.99. I bought this TV on Black Friday for a fraction of that price. I like the new features which make burnin much less likely --- There is a scrubber feature that...

I still always get rid of the black side borders on SD broadcasts or the black top & bottom borders when some movies are shown in widescreen version. It seems I am the only one who can do the fine adjustments needed to get all picture possible with no...

color is awesome compared to the 1080p lcd this replaced. sound is ok, not bad for a tv but i have mine hooked up to a surround system. not much going on with viera link unless you use the panny remote to control your devices; i use a harmony 880...

I started researching Plasma TV's several months ago when I just got sick to death of cra**py LCD technology and the manufacturer's excuses. The prices of Plasma Televisions was extremely competitive and was actually better than LCD. Panasonic stood...

Panasonic Plasma 50"


I have it connected to a Windows PC and a satellite TV DVR. the picture looks great at either 1280 x 720 or 1980 x 1068. I would buy this unit again.

Very sharp picture. Excellent color. I have had zero problems with this TV. Nice swivel base. Numerous inputs including 3 HDMI

Intrinsic to plasma technology it uses a fairly high amount of electricity and puts out some heat. It warms up my bedroom in the spring and fall

Love Panasonic products


I will tell you that i keep my Plasma on a surge protector and i shut it off when i go to sleep. I dont need to spend extra for more expensive 1080 or blue ray products. When those prices come down, then maybe my wallet will open up.

I already had a own a 32" LCD in my bedroom, so when i saw this one go on sale. I jumped on it. I will tell you that i keep my Plasma on a surge protector and i shut it off when i go to sleep. My picture is perfect and i dont see any difference 720 vs...
