I have owned this television for close to a year now and it has been nothing but great. It's size compared to other 42" widescreen televisions is large, it is taller than most, which is very nice. The picture quality is great, with HD television and Blu-ray movies it has amazing picture quality. The speakers that come with it are okay, they don't have much bass for those action movies, but are great for watching television, I would recommend a home theatre with this television. It has loads of extra features, many inputs for s-video, composite, HD, cable, and even Fibre-optics. The remote is great, it has every button on it you need to run the television and all your other components from the comfort of your seat. The remote is also completely compatible with any other panasonic devices without even programming it which is nice seeing as I am a huge fan of panasonic. This television is great, it has great features it's definetly worth the money if you want a large screen TV.
