    I am about to receive a panasonic th-42pw5b, and I was wondering if it is safe to hang this onto a plasterboard wall. Any advice or experience regarding this would be appreciated.

    Is it a stud partition or dry lined? If it is a stud partition and you can find the wooden uprights you can get a good fixing, if it is dry lined as mine is you can fix on to the wall behind it with long screws and rawlplugs.

    yeah, thanx for that installer, I'll have to try and fix it to the fire breast behind the stud wall then.

    Cheers

    where did you get your panasonic wall bracket from?

    i'm looking at a unicol bracket for approx £150 as I thought panny ones were much dearer!

    Don't buy the Panasonic wall bracket, it's a total rip off. I bought a Unicol tiltable bracket for my 42" Panasonic ( think the unicol product reference is PLW) and it is very well made and about half the price of the Panasonic bracket.
