Summary: Very easy to set up and operate. Excellent picture and surprisingly good speakers. Only two things keeping this from being 5-star; the software and the built in WiFi. - Panasonic VIERA's operating system seems a little proprietary and does not access the wide range of apps available except with difficulty. - I had hoped to eliminate my ROKU with the TV's WiFi but Netflix, PLEX, Amazon, etc have nowhere near the resolution when streamed through the TV as through ROKU.
Summary: The picture quality of this TV is excellent. It was pretty good out of the box but definitely needed to be color tuned. It had a kind of yellowish/bronze hue to the picture but that was easily corrected. The 240 hz refresh rate really makes the panning action of a scene look like you're standing in the picture.
Summary: Bought this 47" TV today, 1- for the ultra thin frame to fit an ultra modern white/steel kitchen, nothing else comes close. All others are heavy old fashion thicker black frames. 2- Best picture quality comparison in store against all other TVs. 3- Ultra thin TV body. 4- Internet ready to watch shows on the net. 5- Light weight.
Pros: Ultra thin silver frame., Ultra thin body., best picture quality, Internet ready
Summary: bought in february on amazon for $750. i guess they jack up the price when good reviews start coming in. reviews in february were very mixed (people attribute to the terrible cnet review - which could be true). that said, it is a really good looking set. sound quality is pretty darn good. lots of hdmi ports, usb ports and sd card. wifi streaming really nice....some streaming shows and over the air tv is as clear or more crisp than dvd quality.
Summary: This Panasonic replaced a 42 inch one prior generation and the differencve in the image quality is incredible. Still need a bit of time to fully enjoy the 3D featuire and the Internet but slowly getting there. All in all thouroughly satisfied.
Summary: 9/12/13 Update. So not even 6 months after I purchased the television I noticed a thin yellow line that goes from the top of the screen to the bottom. This line occurs on all inputs. I first started off on my nightmare of an ordeal with Panasonic customer service. I called and was disconnected 3 times.
Summary: I scored this TV for $780 (47" model). All I can say is "Wow." We downgraded from a 60" TV with a lower-quality picture to this one, and I'm so happy we did. The picture is great, the sound is fine (as good as can be expected from a flat panel).
