Panasonic TC-P42X1 Review

Calibration Notes: Without tapping into the service menu for the X1 were were able to come to a very acceptable range very close to D6500. Starting from the warm picture setting we were able to calibrate within a +/- 5% error range on the TC-P50X1. For this price range TV, it calibrates beautifully.
