Sylvania Plasma 42"
Weakness: Poor picture quality......poor reliability.........extremely poor customer service from Funai Corp
TV used in bedroom occassionally. Malifunctioned after 9 months. Funai Corp(Sylvania) customer support very poor. Customer required to package TV and send back for repair. Process takes months.
Would not recommend to anyone. Do not be pulled in to purchasing a TV because of the low price. You get what you pay for, including extremely poor customer service.

Strengths: Great Picture and very user-friendly
Weakness: Cooling fan is kinda loud
I got a steal on this TV at Freddy Meyer. It was the last one and I got a huge reduction on the floor model which had only been up a month. Word of advice to those shopping. Shop around. Those high-end electronic stores will dig as deep in your pockets as they can. I bought this TV for 800 a month ago. You can find deals if you look hard enough..

Strengths: great for the price, Beautiful picture and if you like style this is it.
Weakness: Audio, only puts out 10watts.
This is a great t.v. over all. don't let the word Plasma scare you away. I've always heard LCD'S last longer. Well my thought on that is if you want to keep something in tip top shape take good care of it as you would yourself. So if you want good quality for a good price this is the way to go.

Great Set For The Cost...
Strengths: The HD channels and DVDs are every bit as sharp as higher priced TVs. Very impressed with the quality.
Weakness: Some non-HD channels are a bit fuzzy but more HD channels are on the way. Not quite used to the cooling fan but it makes less noise than my pc.
If you are on a budget and want a plasma HDTV, this is the way to go. We got it at BJ's Wholesale Club for $999.00 and with no salesman mumbo jumbo!

Strengths: Nice image, nice price
Weakness: loud cooling fan can be distracting, no vga input, 90 day company warranty is shorter than most and no extended warranty option
I bought this TV at BJ's Wholesale Club for $999. Easy setup, nice HD image quality, but SD is not so great. The exhaust fan is somewhat distracting. Nice looking set overall.
