Good TV, Only 1 Audio In, Looks bad on Dark Scenes

Summary: The Spec sheet speaks for the TV pretty well , here are the important parts and my take on the features Out of the box everything was in good working order. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to assemble the base (there is a hook that base has to go over) Once assembled everything worked great, except the sound. I had a 32" CRT with great sound and I couldn't even hear the TV across the room. But I expected this TV and other LED TVs to have bad sound.
Summary: I bought this TV one month ago for $850 (including $100 Amazon.com credit). I read most of reviews here and worried a bit about delivery damage and poor quality control but I pull the trigger anyway as the price came down. Third party delievery was on time and delivery man also set up the TV to make sure it has no initial issue. Picture quality is excellent. I have 4 year old Sharp LCD and it is not match to this Panasonic.
Summary: We needed a bigger TV since we remodeled and enlarged our family room/kitchen area. I originally wanted a 55" Samsung LED because we've had great experience with our 40" Samsung. However, the price and feature set of this Panasonic TV, coupled with positive reviews from multiple sources (including Consumer Reports), make this a better value than the comparable Samsung. The Amazon price was incredibly lower than the brick and mortar stores.
Excerpt: This is such a great tv! We bought ours a year ago and haven't been happier. The quality and picture is great and not fuzzy at all, like some other flat screens. I really recommend panasonic. It has many tools with it, like internet, netflix, pandora, etc. We use it everyday! Movie quality is great too especially hooked up to our surround sound! excellent picture quality especially with HD channels! amazing sound quality, especially hooked up to a surround sound!
Excerpt: We bought this TV after my husband did hours of research. The picture on this TV is fantastic! It is very crisp and detailed and the colors are vibrant. We have our TV on almost all day long as background noise and have never once had a problem with it. I was a little concerned about how large it was initially, but after we hung it on the wall it actually is not as big as I thought. It is very easy to program and the remote is easy to use.
Excerpt: I like the picture quality and features, and youtube function. Has ads when you change volume! Great picture, with controls to tailor it (such as turning off the soap opera feel). Good sound, though to make changes you have to push the button a lot. Seems ordinarily durable. I like the sleek black and the clear trim. However, I dislike the red light that illuminates when the TV is on. Good TV, but the smart TV functions have drawbacks.
Summary: I purchased this particular television because of its size class, smart TV functions, the multiple positive reviews it received and price. I have never had a smart TV before, or a TV this size. I was concerned about the packaging as many reviews said it was inadequate and the TV ended up with minor damage on occasion.
Summary: This is a great TV, no doubt about it. ISP panels certainly have an advantage over the technologies used by other LCD brands. Viewing angles are superb. For an edge-lit LED/LCD, this is as uniform backlighting as I have seen. You can only see a few hot spots when there no signal to the set -- and even then, they are not nearly as "hot" as the Samsung 55" which I also own.
Summary: Wanted to give 2 stars but giving 4, it is 2 or worse for mess up caused by Amazon but it is 4 stars for the product. Have been using it for 3 weeks now, so far image is great but sound can be better.
