    “Great! Not one problem in 10 years”

    Written on: 31/01/2012 by kait (1 review written)

    I bought this TV in 2002, and it's worked beautifully... even after being moved from one house to another. The image quality is not what you get in today's TVs, but it's still bright and great. I'm SO happy with this TV that I just just got a new Panasonic plasma (for about half the price I paid for this one), and plan to install this one upstairs. The new one is 60… Read Full Review

    Written on: 18/11/2006 by BEarnshaw (1 review written)

    After 11 months, of regular use approximately four hours a day or more, this plasma TV monitor went from an overall good monitor to a less than fair quality monitor. I've had nothing but problems with this monitor since then, it started out when the monitor itself would occasionally turn itself off. After two weeks of this occasionally happening, I emailed the company from which I purchased this monitor, requesting service to fix to problem. When I did not receive any response to my request… Read Full Review

    Written on: 21/12/2004 by John1941 (1 review written)

    After 12 months of trouble free use, my TH-42PWD6 set turned itself off. The Panasonic tech says he has seen a lot of these, being new technology and not as dependable as the regular TVs. Since it only has a 12 month warranty, I am looking at paying almost $1,000 to fix it… Read Full Review

    Written on: 02/06/2004 by ozarkjim (1 review written)

    I am not a real techno geek so I can't write a technical comparason against other plasma televisions. For 6 months the Panasonic TH42-PWD6 was everything I hoped for. Sharp trouble free picture. I have my own sound system and had no trouble with inputs for my satellite and dvd recorder. About 6 weeks ago the tv developed 3 vertical lines 1 pixel wide spaced about 6 inches apart. Color varied according to background but was usually bright blue. Panasonics website led me to an authorized service… Read Full Review

    Update. They finally got the part to fix my unit instead of replacing it. It only took 8 1/2 weeks! They did extend my warranty by 60 days... but the part they replaced has only the original tv's warranty. In other words if it lasts the same amount of time the first one did it will go bad just after the warranty expires. Oh well, it is nice to look at.

    Written on: 30/12/2003 by cpj1970 (2 reviews written)

    The Panasonic TH42-PWD6's picture quality on SVHS is excellent on component it is amazing. 4000/1 ratio gives a sharp, well defined picture. The screen also projects lots of light.

    I think the screen was intended more towards the commercial market, hence the lack of a tuner, but that also means that you can get it in black or silver and its available for a low price. I paid £2,600 (including delivery and SVHS/Component/composite and PC inputs) from plasma-screens.co.uk, they also sourced the… Read Full Review
