Expert review by : Ty Pendlebury (

Panasonic TC-PX5 review: Panasonic TC-PX5


The cheap Panasonic TC0PX5 series displays plenty of shadow detail and has better black levels than some LCDs at the same price or higher. The TV is able to properly display interlaced content from Blu-rays as well as the correct cadence for 24p content.

The Panasonic X5 has very poor color accuracy, with a green cast to both shadows and skin tones.

The entry-level Panasonic X5's color problems make it the worst choice among the year's cheap plasmas.

" what happened ?????????"


I purchased this model in December 2012. It has been a great addition to our family's entertainment. We have used it in moderation due to the fact that we have other models that we use throughout the house. just last night it was on for about 45...

clear picture and good sound

it stopped powering on less than 9 hours after use the previous night

"Do NOT BUY!!!!!! WARNING!!!!!"


Bought new at Wal-Mart only 6 mths ago, just stopped working will not do anything, according to their repair person this is an ongoing problem with this TV. Have been trying to get the part for 3 weeks to fix, they keep saying on back order, I'll bet...

It was cheap, do yourself a favor and spend a little more.

Broken TV is worthless, only 6 mths old. Customer service is worthless!!! Does not care about customers.
