Panasonic Plasma HDTV
I've had my Panasonic Viera 42" HDTV for about a year now. It's the nicest TV I've owned and my first larger flatscreen model. The TV works great and I mainly use it just as a TV and watch a lot of blu-rays as well. I don't use it as a computer monitor, so I have nothing to add about that. The picture is flawless from all angles in my living room. There are plenty of options in the custom menus so that you can set up a very nice quality picture. I think the remote control is desinged well, features are very easy to access. I also have a Panasonic blu-ray player, and both remotes control either device, though not all of the features work with both remotes. I like this Panasonic so much, that I'm actually now shopping for a 50" upgrade, and will be moving this 42" TV to another room. I have loaded a memory card with pictures from my digital camera and played them on the TV using the Viera Image Viewer program. The slideshow looks wonderful. I think you'll be happy with a Panasonic HDTV.
