Summary: I purchased this TV in September 2011. It has an awesome picture, probably one of the best I've seen. The sound is mediocre, but I knew that from reading reviews. I don't expect great sound to come out of a flat panel. That's why I have a stereo! I was very happy with the TV picture.
Summary: We loved this TV from day one. Phenomenal picture quality. I read the reviews beforehand and checked with Consumer Reports, as well. CR ranked Panasonic as great in the quality of their plasma HDTVs, with only 4% reported as having serious issues. So, we did not get an extended warranty.
Summary: We purchased this product new in May 2011. The screen stopped working today. I guess Panasonic expects consumers to buy a new television from them every two and a half years, as this plasma television did not last very long.
Summary: I researched and saved for this TV for a long time before actually buying it. I bought it last year. It's suppossed to be internet ready with the purchase of an antenna adapter which I bought immediately. After my TV failed to connect to the internet I called the, "concierge service.
It breaks the their service is the worst I've ever seen

Summary: Where to start. It's a good TV, as long as it works. I was happy with it. It broke suddenly, completely without warning, after only 7 months of ownership. The good part, it's still under warranty. And so will your journey begin.
Summary: After owning this TV (60" model) for several weeks now I can say I'm very happy overall. When I watched the TV out of the box with the factory default settings I was very unhappy and thought I might have to return the TV.
Summary: So I thought I'd surprise the family by purchasing this 50" plasma for Christmas (2011) and everyone in our house loved it. My main intent for this TV was for Xbox 360 use and it was working beautifully...was.
Summary: While this plasma is considered "entry level" in the VIERA product line, it performs at least as well or better than any other plasma on the market today. The main reason this TV is labeled entry level is due to the limited number of connections.
Summary: Outstanding picture, hooked up to my Panasonic Surround Sound Home Theater system. TV Speakers are not as bad as some of the reviews. Manual easy to understand and hook up was relatively easy. Using HDMI for Surround Sound.
