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: 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: This product worked nicely for 2 months. After that I started seeing a black vertical line on the screen that will not go away. I called Panasonic customer service, and so far they have been the worst Customer Service experiences I've ever had.
Summary: This TV pops ads up on the screen when you turn it on and when you adjust the volume. These ads are inserted by the TV itself, not by the program source. For me nothing else matters, I'm not going to use a TV that does this.
