Bought this baby after my 10 year old 26" Sony broke and frankly its amazing. Since I hadn't bought a new TV in a long time I did quite a lot of research into what TV would give me most bang for my buck. All I knew was that it had to be big and be able to produce a great image. My first port of call was to decide whether it should be a LCD or Plasma TV. There seems to be a huge debate over which is better and from my research and experience the plasma seems to come out on top. There seems to be less motion blur when it comes to fast moving objects and dark colours seem to be more accurate and produce a 'true-black' colour. The LCD pictures seemed to be lighter and brighter colours were produced more vibrantly.
When I visited the Panasonic shop the man basically said that if you're getting a 42inch+ size TV plasma was the way forward as the LCD quality goes down hill from that size where as at 39" LCD seemed to have the upper hand when it came to picture quality. LCD's also use up less power and a plasma TV can sometimes have image scarring where if you leave a static image displaying on the TV it can scar into the background of TV when watching but to do this you would have to leave a static image on for 12 hours or more (who does that?)
My brother seemed adamant that the 39" LCD was better but I believed the 42" plasma had the edge. Needless to say he bought the LCD and I the plasma. I know I got the better deal. The picture quality is awesome, no motion blur what so ever, colours are represented accurately and dark colours and shade remain dark. It is a Full HD 1080p TV which is really only beneficial if you watch a lot of HD TV channels, own a games console or watch blu ray's, some say that more and more HD channels will be emerging and a 1080p Full HD picture does produce the best picture possible but you won't be missing out if you decide to save yourself some cash and not go Full HD. 3 HDMI ports for great connectivity and you can connect your camera or laptop to the TV as well. I was worried about the size of the TV and that it might be too big. But it fits very nicely in my 8m x 4m room and makes the room look like a modern 21st century living room. Big is certainly better.
Summary: Want a full HD 42" plasma tv? This is the one to get.
