I finally bought the panny th50px60u yesterday on black friday. C City had a price I just could not pass up. I cant even watch it for about a month because my house will not be done until then. So the poor thing has to sit in my moms floor until then. Any sugestions on tilting wall mounts?

Thank you!

Hehe, they were part of a coffee table my GF built and used before this, and we kept them in service. I'm probably going to get some media storage and use those instead, but for now I think they look pretty cool.

Don't let hagbag (very appropriate name, btw) rag on your use of those cinderlocks, Manny. Any port in a storm, imo. Nice set.

You certainly blew thru the break-in period in a darn hurry. What'd you do - leave the set on 24/7 and play the break-in disc?

Yes, I did that and because I work nights at home and my GF is up during the day the set has been on for the most part when the DVD isn't in. I wanted to get the break in over as quickly as possible to avoid having to worry about it.

I bought a Panasonic TH42PX60U. Had it for about 2 weeks and then decided that it didn't quite fill up the wall enough.

Wound up returning it and purchasing a Samsung HPS5053 instead. I was really drawn to the shiny black bezel, it really frames the picture. PQ is amazing on high def and not bad on sd channels thru a Comcast Motorola box.

Got a great deal at a local store based on some of the deals that the big box chains were running on Black Friday.

Picked up the Panny 42-60U on Friday morning at BB's 7 hour sale. Yep, I was one of the idiots standing in line in the rain at 3:30 in the morning.
And I could not be happier. I have been in front of the set every avaliable moment since 6:00am Friday morning.
I had tears in my eyes watching the Patriots crush the hearts of da Bears fans.
And let's just say that seeing Junior Seau's forearm bent at a 45 degree angle was a little gross.
I had a lot of reservations on this set due to the misinformed opinion of the picture quality as seen in the stores (like the image was painted with watercolors). I know now it is due to the "Vivid" picture setting. After tweaking the settings, I am truly in awe of the image quality.
I couldn't care less if the set is a little better or a little worse than the other guy's set. It is perfection for me.
I am now in search of reasonably priced cantilevered wall mount. No, I'm not spending $400 for one. I'll make one out of scrap metal before I spend $400 on a mount. $170 for an HDMI cable? Are you insane? They must really think that FPD owners are completely braindead when it comes to spending money.
I am also pleased to realize that my 5 year old DVD player looks great once connected with component cables. I had never owned a TV with component inputs so I have never seen the benefits of the component outputs. I had watched Saving Private Ryan hooked up with an s-video cable and was less than impressed.
I spent hours researching a new upscaling DVD player when I decided to connect the component jacks. The difference was night and day. The Panny upscales the image so beautifully that I can definitely wait a year or two for Blu-Ray to come down in price.
I am so happy to be a card carrying member of the HDTV movement.

Just picked up the PDP42V18HA from Wal-Mart on Black Friday. So far, so good. Very good picture right out of the box. Right now I'm hooked up to my DVD player via component and the picture is amazing. I can't imagine a benefit to getting the HDMI cable and a new DVD player. I'm sure I will sooner or later though.

Picked up a Panny 50x60U last week from CompUSA. They had a good price at the time from their 11-19 ad in the paper. Then on Thursday CC had the same set for $300 less. On Friday I went back to CompUSA with my receipt and the CC ad. They gave me a $300 refund, very willingly I might ad.

I didn't get it hooked up until Friday, as I had to buy a table/stand to set it on. What a picture! I'm working on the break in time so we can get it set up properly. Thanks for all the information I've gotten on this forum.

1. The "Model" you have.
Viore PD42v18HA

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Killer price on a 42" plasma screen at WallyWorld's Black Friday sale.

3. What you like best about your Plasma.
Size & picture quality.

4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Lots to learn in order to optimize display of all input possibilities.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
Multi-function remote

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
(a) input access needs to be random or have individual buttons on remote, rather than having to go through them one at a time.
(b) it would be nice if their remote codes were present in other universal control devices

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
That a 1024 x 768 native resolution maximum does not equal a true HD display. The monitor is HD compliant, but you cannot display a full 720 or 1080 image, it is all downconverted. Still, picture quality is stunning compared to my 27" analogue it replaced.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
Audio Out on the display is a straight lineout signal, so I can't control Volume/Mute with the TV remote.

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
The $988 Black Friday price blew away by a considerable margin every other comparable 42" plasma out there.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
A vast improvement over my old TV. Our cable system feeds both standard and HD versions of local channels, and doing an A/B by switching back and forth between the two cable channels/analogue-digital versions of the same exact programming is jaw-dropping.

1. The "Model" you have.
-Panasonic TH-42PX60U

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Panasonic's reputation, 9th generation panel

3. What you like best about your Plasma.
Picture quality

4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Standard/Vivid/Cinema settings are not input specific

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
PIP, orbiting pixiels, better remote.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
Include more info in manual on burn-in & break-in

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
Picture quality & brightness

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
-None yet, just a fear of burn-in.


9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
Yes, considering that this set replaced a 36" Mitsubishi tube set that I paid $3,500.00 for in 1990 (about $10,000 in 2006 dollars !)

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
I wish the major networks would demand that advertisers run only wide screen commercials. It is a real P.I.T.A. to keep switching to "just" to fill the screen, for fear of burn-in

After months of waiting and pining, I finally got the Panny 42PX60U two weeks ago @ BB while ensuring they would price-match or adjust if it was reduced. Then I see their 7 hour sale on Black Friday!. Well needless to say I strolled in a 10:30 am (why hurry) to request my price adjustment, 20 mins later I was $324 richer...well $324 out the hole anyway. Very good experience, no complaints. I have to find an HDMI 'hub' of some sort as the 10ft cable I got from monoprice is too stiff to work with the tv in the lift mechanism it is housed in.

1. The "Model" you have.
-Panasonic TH-42PX60U

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model"?
- Stellar advice on this forum, consumer reports, The Panasonic reputation, reviews frm owners and professionals (magazines, websites etc.) and of course...PRICE!!!

3. What you like best about your Plasma.
-Blown away by the picture quality, though only using component at the moment, and sound. Thought speakers would be terrible but sound better than expected.

4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
-Loses settings once power is lost or unplugged. I've had to redo the setup 4 times already in the last few days. Minor inconvenience though.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
-PIP, orbiting pixiels, black bezel.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
- 4 fans, this baby gets really hot!

7.What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
-Speakers and image quality.

8.What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma
-None as yet

9. Do you really think that today's "Prices" are worth it.
- Definitely! Earlier this year when I started looking at this unit it was $2500, finally got it 6 months later for $1500 less...I'd say thats not a bad price at all.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
- The concern over burn in /IR is high, but I try to ensure that the screen is fillied and that I don't watch channels with very opaque logos etc. Plus I run the 'burn-in disc' very often in between viewings, and overnight. Can't wait for this to be over with, but better safe than sorry.

All I want for Christmas is my two front seats

1. The "Model" you have.
Samsung HP-S4253

The appearance. I was choosing between this and the PANNY. I liked the black better than the silver.
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
Other than the picture I really like the number of inputs they included.
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
The sound quality
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
None that I know of.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
Find a way to lower the amount of heat it puts out and muffle the buz noise.
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
No surprises yet
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
None
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Pretty good but getting better every year.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Having alot of fun with PS2, XBOX360, DISH HD, OTA HD, and PC connected. WAHOOO!!!

Edit to say the buz noise is very low and I had to get right next to the set to hear it. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I had not read about it.

I just experienced my first big screen disappointment last night. I recorded "Heros" on my Comcast Motorola DCT 5100 DVR/Cable box to watch after I came home from band practice. Recorded the HD channel (Comcast puts both analogue and HD through the system for the local channels as well as a bunch of Premium Channels).

When I sat down to watch it, I was appalled at the picture quality, or should I say the *lack* of picture quality.

I guess I didn't notice the hideous compression artifacts on my old 27" analogue TV, huh?

Are all DVR's this way? Are there settings that can be changed to allow for full-res recording of HD programming? The manual doesn't seem to indicate that for this cable box/DVR...

Something is not, right all my HD DVR recordings look as good recorded as when viewed originally.

1. The "Model" you have.
42PX60U Panasonic 42" Plasma HDTV

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
The prices were being cut big-time after Thanksgiving, and most everything I heard about this set was positive.

3. What you like best about your Plasma.
The picture quality, and the fact that it doesn't have motion blur on fast moving scenes (and sports) like my old LCD.

4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
The stand, plus feeling like I have to babysit it to prevent burn-in.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
Hmm, not sure. Guaranteed no burn-in? Or burn-in being covered by the warranty?

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
Change the stand. I want to angle my TV a bit, and part of the stand leans off the table.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
Hmm. That it doesn't seem to be as big as I thought. I had just upgraded from a 37" Westinghouse LCD, and going up to 42" I was a little worried that it would dominate the room, but it really doesn't seem that much bigger than the 37" Westinghouse. It seems taller, but not necessarily wider? Oh yeah. Also, the set doesn't seem to run as hot as I thought it would. I see a bunch of fans in the back, but when I feel along the set, it doesn't feel hot at all. Not really even all that warm. My LCD seemed to run hotter. Maybe I'm not feeling in the right place?

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
Well, when I first did the auto-scan for channels, it took awhile, and I noticed what I thought was burn-in from the progress bar. It took awhile to go away (maybe 3-4hrs), but it looks like it's just about gone away, if not completely gone. That worried me a little bit, since I was following all the instructions, but I hadn't yet changed the settings from Vivid since the manual said to do the auto-scan first. Also, I'm about 16hrs in the break-in period, and I don't notice very much IR at all now, so that's good.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Hmm, not sure. I would say not, even though I got a great price on this set. The HDTV looks great. The size is great. But normal cable stations don't look as good as they do on CRTs. That, plus the fact that ALL these sets have some sort of issues (LCDs with motion blur, picture quality, Plasmas with burn-in, etc) and you would think that the prices would be even lower. If none of these issues were issues, then sure, I could maybe see charging the prices they do.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Not sure of any yet. I was a little worried when that progress bar stayed on the screen for a few hours, but it seems to have mostly faded. The screen is pretty reflective, so if that is a problem in your room, you may have to rearrange things or look for a different set. Overall, so far I'm pleased. The break-in seems to be going well now. The next big thing will be seeing how it reacts when I turn the settings up a bit (right now, picture/brightness/sharpness are all -15), and when I try to game on it. If there are no major problems with it then, then I will be pleased.

Hello everyone,
I am relatively new to this forum and need your assistance in getting down to a short list of the top units so my wife and I can go and see them to make the final decision. By "smaller" I mean a unit that has a 27" diagonal screen size or a bit larger.

From my limited knowledge, I hear that Plasma's are the way to go if your ambient light levels exceed that of a home theatre set-up. So, that is my driving reason to go Plasma.


Thank you, in advance, for helping a newbee!

Phil

Problem is, I think the smallest plasmas come are around 37". Usually plasmas are for larger sets. If you are looking for a 27" set, you're best bet is a "normal" TV (CRT), or an LCD TV.

Been very satisfied with my 43PX60U. It's hooked to basic Comcast Cable and without an antenna I am able to get a few HD channels. After calibration the TV with AVIA the picture is as sharp as a razor and the colors and brightness are outstanding. This TV deserve to be fed nothing but HD. I only wish there was more HD channels available right now. PQ from my Sony progressive scan DVD player is excellent. HD-DVD/Blu-rey must be mind blowing.

Only thing I don't enjoy is labeling the channels. It's just take too much time. But overall since this is my first plasma and I am hooked. The audio even sounds fantastic. Bravo Panasonic.
