Summary: Tv arrived on time, and worked as expected. Had a bit of a problem getting the base screws tight enough to keep it from leaning, other then that, was fine. Don't watch a lot of TV, but turned it on, and after oh, probably about 30-40 hrs of use, turned off, and has done nothing since. Called Panasonic, and since the tv isn't 46"+, you have to take it to a repair center.
Summary: I just received the television today. Noticed that 4 assembly screws were missing for the pedestal on which the TV would be mounted. Called Panasonic's "Concierge" service devoted to Viera. Panasonic's "Concierge" service told me that I would have to send them proof of purchase or I could buy the screws on my own from Best Buy or Sears. In any case, it would take them 7-10 business days after receipt of proof of purchase to send the missing pedestal accessories to me.
