4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great in our bright room!, April 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P42UT50 42-Inch 1080p Full HD 3D Plasma TV (Electronics)
I've had this TV for about a week and, after reading some other reviews, had some concerns that it would be too dim for our living room. Thankfully, that has not been the case. Even with four big windows where the sun shines directly on the TV, we can still see the picture just fine. If we really want it to be clear, we'll close the blinds, but it's not completely necessary. Just gotta change the TV's picture settings to Cinema or Game or customize it yourself.

The main thing we use the TV for is streaming online video and the built-in apps work surprisingly well. I figured there would only be very basic functionality in the YouTube, Amazon Prime, Pandora, etc, apps, but thankfully YouTube still lets me browse all my subscriptions (although it goes back to the beginning of my subscriptions after I finish watching one of them, which is annoying). There's no way to comment on YouTube videos, though. I find YouTube works best if you use YouTube's "YouTube Remote" mobile app for iPhone/Android. Makes it easy to watch the videos on the screen while browsing your subscriptions and other videos on your phone.

The only reason I didn't give this TV 5 stars is because the audio quality won't blow you away. It's definitely very sufficient, but it sounds like TV audio. I'm planning to hook it up to my stereo system for a fuller sound.

I have the 42" and it only has 2 HDMI ports, which is my Xbox and Blu-ray player. I wish there was another HDMI port or two.

Get a HDMI switcher to increase the TV inputs.
