Summary: I love this tv !! It's Awsome and the 3D isn't so bad either I was worried being a gamer that I would run into a lot of motion blur but I haven't noticed it one bit great picture and sound I would honestly buy it again if I needed to!
Summary: This tv is all metal build except for a light plastic frame underneath the lower screen frame. The color is great and the picture quality is good for the price. I wouldn't call it spectacular though. Am totally satisfied with it. The shipping was something else. No padding except for the plastic box holding the tv. The box was torn and a scratch on the TV.thankfully it was the back and being that this tv is all metal.
Summary: I did a little research and looked at the on display at Costco. They didn't have this model, so I mostly purchased this TV based on reviews and price point. Set up was easy, and the picture had a "Wow" impact and still does three months later. It wasn't my favorite movie, but I watched the Oz movie in 3D and the effect was also stunning (especially during the opening credits). We have a 51" Samsung plasma in the man cave downstairs that rarely gets used now.
Summary: Almost everyone told me to buy a Samsung because thay believe Samsung is the best, so I did a little home work before buying this set vs the Samsung TV (and a few others) this model competes with. The ET60 from Panasonic just happens to be an editors choice from PcMag.com. It received and excellent rating.
Summary: I'm blown away by the picture quality in both 2-D and 3-D settings. Its arrival was prompt. The product was well packed....and the price was excellent! I'm very pleased! Panasonic is the bomb!
Summary: I bought this TV after moving into a newly built house and installed it above the fireplace. My living room is approx 19' x 24' and this 50" is just the right size. The bezel is very thin and silver so the TV appears less obtrusive than standard all black chunky sets many people have. The picture is amazing, I notice how clear and vivid it is even months after installing. I would highly recommend this TV.
Great TV but was delivered with a built-in defect!!

Summary: This TV was delivered by UPS and was packed in a carton so large the UPS driver said he was not supposed to deliver a package so large on his regular route truck. He said it should be a freight delivery but the terminal loaded it on his truck. I helped him carry it to the house and my wife and I began unpacking. The TV was in it's factory carton deep within the huge shipping carton and we finally dug down to it and pulled it out.
Summary: This TV has impressed me thoroughly, the sound, not so much but as with other reviewers I was aware of that fact and never made that a bullet point on my 'must haves' checklist during my hunt for my next flat panel. The semi-matte screen allows the picture to have a little more depth than a plain matte, it does reflect some light but it's an acceptable trade-off.
Summary: I would have given a fifth star if not for the reflective screen. With no light immediately behind the viewer, the picture quality is superb. If I was using the built in speakers (which I'm not) I would have been disappointed by the mediocre audio quality - but that's to be expected with such a thin device.
