TOP 1000 REVIEWERon July 26, 2001
In addition to having a passable picture this is an average Projection TV in the 4 by 3 aspect ratio. Bear in mind that term: 4 by 3. Don't pass this one up! Instead manufacturers are moving toward the 16 by 9 aspect ratio. For conventional (4 by 3) antenna, cable or satellite TV broadcasts and VHS playback this is the one of a handful of the best Projection sets available. Get them while they are still around, 4 by 3 aspect ratios that is. Many people going with the 16 by 9 sets are not happy because there are very few HD signals out there at least for the next 4 or 5 years the way things look. 4 by 3 is the way to go right now. People are complaining because when viewing a widescreen program on a 4 by 3 set you get black bars on the top and bottom. On 16 by 9 sets you get black bars on the left and right sides of the screen all the time unless you watch a wide screen program! That means that you are going to get black bars on the sides for over 90 percent of what you are going to be watching for the next 5 or 6 years. Apparently, the FCC, the major Broadcasting Networks and Cable companies still can't agree on how they are going to broadcast High Definition Television signals. And that decision does not look like it is gong to be made any time soon! Stay with the 4 by 3 aspect ratio like this Projection set has. You can't go wrong and you will be much happier. Many people are returning their 16 by 9 projection sets according to an area dealer because they can't stand the black bars on the right and left. This is a good set but if you want a sharper picture with more definition I would check out MITSUBISHI's line first and compare.

The tv was worth every penny, the picture quality can not get any better. The sound is great. I definitely recommend the tv to anyone. I am very satisfied.

I shopped around for months and I found this TV to be the best bang for the buck. You can't go wrong with this one. It had a sharper picture than the Toshiba and the Sony TV's in the same price range. You really won't be dissapointed.

Only but a buy a big screen panasonic if you like throwing your money away. After the warranty expires, tv breaks, on mine dp board went out. Repair cost $1000.00. Customer service [bad], quality worse. Listen to someone who knows buy another brand.....any brand but Panasonic. Oh yeah, if you do buy one, forget about their "independent authorized repair centers" they are a bunch of twerps also

Totaly dead after 3 years. Nice picture and sound, but I expect something I spend over 1500 on to last much longer.

Was quite the bang for the buck-much more than I had originally realized. Has an incredible picture to it and two excellent built-in center channel speakers.

The picture quality is outstanding. Configuration choices are well thought out. The built in features include everything I was looking for. The set is easy to hook up and adjust.

My Panasonic PT-51HX41 broke in just over 2 years. It is $500 to fix and the repairman says that the problem with the amplifiers and resisters on Panasonic TVs are common. Why no recall? Avoid big screen panasonics!!!!
