Summary: This was a fantastic TV for just over 2 years. Just after the two year mark, the picture suddenly developed horizontal black lines spaced about a quarter inch apart. Too expensive of a purchase to throw away just after two years.
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.
