Summary: This TV has excellent value. For a grand, no other TV can match its Smart features, screen size and picture quality. The TV is very minimalistic with its very thin bezels and profile and trapezoidal stand. Colors are accurate and shadow detail is excellent. It offers a lot of settings to tweak for color calibration without going into the service menu. 3D performance was a bit of a disappointment. Crosstalk breaks the immersion on a lot of scenes.
Looks great in the dark...not so much in the light

Summary: I've owned this TV for a few weeks now and feel comfortable enough to provide a proper review. Before this, I was using a 42" LG 1080p TV from 2008 that I enjoyed, even though I realized that it wasn't the pinnacle of picture quality. It worked well enough, but I was looking for a sub-$1000 solid performing 3D TV recently when this one caught my eye.
Summary: Update 7/10/2014 I still love this TV (it's still working and the picture is still beautiful), but wanted to warn people that Image Retention (IR) is a problem. I got this TV in November, 2013 and my roommate got an Xbox One a week or two later. They say that for the first 100 hours or so the plasma is at its brightest and that's when the TV is more prone to IR. Well, the Xbox One has a "Snap" feature that pulls a bunch of icons, etc.
