Defective TV, display panel problems after only 18 months of operation.

Summary: I bought this TV in July 2012. It was working fine for 18 months when suddenly horizontal lines began forming on the screen and the picture started freezing, although the sound worked correctly. The online Panasonic support, they had me do a hard reset on the TV, which did not work.
Summary: I really wanted to love this TV. The TV itself is extremely attractive and the picture was quite good. It's a really thin TV with Netflix very conveniently integrated. About 2 months in, the picture started to become distorted. I called customer support and dropped it off at the repair shop.
Summary: Here are some personal Pros and Cons I've found Pros: -IPS is exactly what you'd expect. Crisp images from every viewing angle. Greatly impressed. -Sometimes I game (XBox 360) on this TV, and there is a noticeable, though very slight, lag due to the IPS technology (5ms is the quoted time).
Summary: My panel stopped working within the warranty period. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have any parts to repair it with. Waiting is all I have done, and I paid 1400 for essentially a 11 month TV rental. Look elsewhere.
Summary: Nice TV, just have had for 1 day w/o probs. My only complaint is that there is only "1" Audio Output and it is Digital Audio. I've had to order an active adapter (Dig-to-RCA) and Optical cable to get my older sound system to work (another $23).
Summary: I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I've never paid over $500 for a TV, and for that price, this absolutely blows away all the other TV's I've owned. The design is sharp, the picture is crisp, and the connection options are great.
An excellent TV that falls slightly short of its potential

Summary: First, let me say straight of the bat that this is a really excellent TV. Panasonic really made it not only beautiful to the eye, but easy to set up and use. The second I took it out of the box, I was amazed by how thin it was. I'm going to break this down piece by piece: Packaging.
