    Written on: 03/04/2009

    I've had my Panasonic TH-42PA20 now for 4 or 5 years, have excellent picture and sound quality, not a moments trouble with it The screen is as clear and clean as it was when I bought it. The manual is sometimes a little fuzzy but on the occasions I've had to phone the help line like when setting up dvd recorder. wii etc, they were extremely knowledgeable and sorted the problem pronto, even years after the guarantee had run out. Mine is mounted on the wall using a mounting in wood that we… Read Full Review

    Written on: 08/10/2008 by Zorro1928 (2 reviews written)

    I was told when i got my Panasonic TH-42PA20 not to leave it sitting on any one screen as it may 'burn' the image onto the screen. This is not a problem after a very short while from using.
    The packaging should be kept as if you move house it is a very good way of transporting and protecting the TV.
    I am looking to invest in a Hi Def Sky decoder, and this unit can accomodate this very well i.e. future proofed.
    I will look to 3-D TVs in ten years time. In the meantime I'll stick to the Panasonic… Read Full Review

    Written on: 04/06/2008

    The Panasonic TH-42Pa20 is an excellent Plasma Television. For over two years my TV has been perfect. Excellent picture plus a great sound. No problems. Have had two other brands of flat screen TV's one plasma the other LCD that were bought after the Panasonic and both had problems. The LCD could not be fixed and the plasma cost more than I was willing to pay to fix it. I guess the extended warnties might be the way to go. I would buy the Panasonic in a heart beat… Read Full Review

I have had it for 2years but just start to use it as I work away every 15 min it will turn off so I went onto the internet to find out the problem it turned out that model had a default on it when it was made do you think Panasonic should fix it or at least give me a new part so i can get it fixed, will not get another Panasonic!… Read Full Review

    Panasonic TH-42PA20 - Ok maybe the sound isn't the greatest coming from a tv, but let's face it, the people at Panasonic have put their resources at picture quality with this model and suceeded. Also I don't know of anyone who purchases a plasma without having it hooked up to their entertainment system.

    Onward to image quality. I split the difference because brocasters cannot bring the same image quality as you would get off a dvd even in HDTV.

    Worse yet is the analog signal, which represents… Read Full Review

    Written on: 22/06/2005 by Seema Ahmed (1 review written)

    The Panasonic TH-42PA20 Television is sleek and expansive but considering I have had it mounted on my living room wall for the past year I can't understand how the SC Board & its associated computer chip became defective. I enjoyed the TV briefly but should have got the extended warranty since the 1-year factory warranty will not cover the costs of resolving this TV… Read Full Review

    I have had my Panasonic TH42PA20 Plasma Television for almost a year now, as already commented I was wary on spending such a large amount given that screens burn etc. but it has been fabulous. The fact that the t.v tuner is built in is great too, I also have the stand that is an extra. I also run DVD's through the composite connection and the picture quality is nothing short of amazing. Every time I watch this screen I am very happy I decided to buy it… Read Full Review

    Written on: 04/05/2004 by markstr (1 review written)

    I have had my Panasonic TH-42PA20 Plasma Television now for over a month and it is certainly the best purchase I have ever made.
    When I first started looking at buying a Plasma TV I like most was nervous about spending a large amount of money, weary of the 'Screen burn' factors of a plasma, and also not sure which plasma I should get.

    The Panasonic TH-42PA20 is definately one of the best value for money mid-range plasmas on the market.

    The picture quality is excellent (TV and DVD) and it just… Read Full Review
