Summary: Of course it is last years model now. I have had it for a year and have no complaints at all. It functions beautifully, is attractive when off, very narrow to conserve space, great picture and sound.
Warranty Warning - watch for where you get it from

Summary: Be warned that you may save some money when ordering a TV on amazon but it might be because you aren't getting a warranty. Many manufacturers will only offer a warranty for a TV that was purchased from a qualified retailer. So be sure to first check the manufacturer webpage for authorized dealers. When purchased from these retailers a regular manufacturer warranty will be honored.
Wonderful picture, thin bezel makes it look like the picture comes out of the wall, remote control still too complicated

Summary: Absolutely brilliant picture. You won't be sorry. IMHO it beats anything that Samsung offers. SmartTV is effortless to use. The only disappointment is the remote. As usual, too many buttons. We even waited to buy a Panasonic Blu-Ray player so they would work seamlessly together. Just not as seamless as one would hope.
Summary: We bought this TV as part of the Cyber Monday's deal. If you are watching with a little bit of lighting (not totally 100% dark) then the black level is very acceptable. If it's totally 100% dark, then the black level is OK, it is definitely not as bad as reviewed by CNET. I'm very satisfied with the purchase and will recommend this TV to others if the price is right (55 inches for $999).
Summary: I liked the service, the item was delivered as advertised and very promptly. The TV has great collors and i love the built-in wireless capability along with smart TV option... Compare to my old TV with this one i don't have to use apple or google tv box to watch netflix and have access to many other apps.
Summary: 55" LED, 3D, 240 Hz; Great tv. Much better sound quality than my Samsung Plasma Tv. Love that you can connect wirelessly to computers on your home group and connect straight to the internet from the Tv.
