I've had my Panasonic TC-P42X1 since Nov. 2009. This is the first and only HDTV i've ever owned. Best purchase I have ever made! No problems in over 5 years of use. Paid $550 for it at Best Buy with no regrets. Still a great picture, still working great. The reason for not rating it 5 stars is as with many flat screens, the sound can be better. Im looking into buying a sound bar. Im sure this would bring my rating for my Panasonic up to a full 5 stars!

I bought this TV years ago and it's still working as perfectly as the day I bought it! No complaints. I especially like the timed turn-off feature for those of us who tend to fall asleep watching TV. It was packed well and shipped carefully.

I purchased this TV in August of 2009. Loved it!!! Excellent picture and sound. One thing I will say about the sound, wall mount the TV. The rear firing speakers need the sound reflection. On a stand, the volume must be turned up to be heard at a proper listening level. Minor issue.
The problem began a few months ago. I noticed, when there was lettering in the picture, especially edge to edge, the first and sometimes second letters at both ends were missing. I looked through all menus. There is not an adjustment available as can be found on a computer monitor.
I finally had a technician check the TV. The fix is either a $250 part and a difficult replacement procedure, or the unit is not repairable.
I expected a much longer life from a Panasonic product. For now, I will live with the defective TV.
When replacement comes into the schedule, I will research much more carefully.

I have been in contact with Panasonic tech support concerning this TV. The last email I received from them stated,
"Unfortunately, there is no life expectancy for the unit. We apologize for the inconvenience for this, however, there is no information that can be given for that.
We hope this information is helpful to you.
Thank you for contacting Panasonic."
I then sent a letter to Panasonic's corporate U.S. office on October 29, 2013, and I have not heard anything.
I now question Panasonic's integrity.

The tv is still working but I estimate that 25% of the picture is no longer viewable. Never did hear from Panasonic. I guess since they were discontinuing plasma televisions, one more unhappy customer didn't matter.

had this tv now 3.5 years. came home from vacation after not using it for 8 days and it won't turn on, no picture and the tv clicks on and off by itself! appparently this is common with this tv. Wish I had known. Not sure how much it's going to cost to fix, but 3.5 years, that's sad.

I have had this TV approximately 2 years and like many others was very happy with picture quality and was in aggreement with most other reviewers about the quality of Panasonic products. This opinion has been jaded recently. Suddenly, TV turned off and red light blinked 7 times, paused and blinked 7 times and repeated this cycle. After researching online there are many others with 42 inch sets experiencing similar problems. There seems to be a faulty board or other similar componants that can cause what is know as 7 blinks of death in these TVs. I have a 50 inch set in living room and am just keeping my fingers crossed. There are reports of Panasonic taking care of some customers with TVs a few months out of warranty. It is hit or miss with repairs costing up to $500. I did not take extended warranty because I assumed buying a name brand such as Panasonic would be safer than buying a cheap model. I guess you just live and learn.

How glad am I that I bought the Panasonic VIERA X1 Series TC-P42X1? 5 STARS GLAD! This TV looks superb no matter what I'm watching. I know there are plenty of 1080p-addicts out there, but the 720p picture on this set has never let me down. I have a Pioneer DV-610AV 720p DVD player, a PS3, a PS2 and a Sega Dreamcast hooked up to it. The DVD player and PS3 are hooked up to HDMI, the PS2 to component, and the Dreamcast to S-Video. And hey, even the Dreamcast looks sweet on this baby! The sound is okay for regular TV, but for movies my Onkyo TX-SR507 receiver and 3 speaker w/subwoofer setup sound better. (That's why they're hooked up to the TV!) This Panasonic TV was easy to set up, is easy to operate, and I'm thinking it'll be going strong for many more years.

I have used this TV for one year now. It has been a great TV for the price and I have not had any technical issues. I paid $670 for it December 2009 (free shipping).
