Summary: I've owned this tv for nearly 2 1/2 years and throughout that time the picture has never dulled. The display is crisp, natural, and the blacks are perfect... 2 1/2 years later. I recommend this tv for a person who has no idea what they want, between an lcd, led, or plasma.
Summary: Paid $500 delivered to the door over 2 years ago and it's been great the entire time. I read some previous reviews stating theirs had died fairly young. Could be a heat issue. I have never forgotten what my electrician brother told me 30 years ago, "heat is the enemy of all electronics".
Summary: We have had this plasma Panasonic for 16 months now, with it being our first HDTV. While I had an idea of what I was missing with HD, I saw no reason to get rid of our 36 Toshiba tube. Well, finally the day came when even gently tapping the back would not bring the tube back to life.
If this dies, I would buy another without question or doubt. Amazing.

Summary: Understandably, being my first HDTV purchase I was a little overwhelmed by all the information out there - I basically wanted to know how long it would last, how to calibrate it for the best picture quality - and all that good stuff.
Summary: I bought this tv for less than $500. I did not want to spend a lot of money on a tv but wanted high def. This tv was almost perfect for what I needed. The picture is very good and the thin stylish black body is handsome.
Summary: I have had the same old TV for a long time. So old, it only had a single jack in the back. Can you imagine my utter amazement when I fired this baby up and put in my favorite DVD? I'm glad I was sitting down because I was knocked aback by the utter new world of viewing before me.
Summary: I have 2 42 inch Panasonic 720P Viera Plasmas and one 50 inch. I have also owned 3 LG LCD's and a Samsung over the last 4 years. The Panasonic Plasmas are incredible. My dad and brother spent over a $1000 dollars on a Samsung 1080P that looks no better than the 720P Panasonic plasma.
