Summary: This TV worked just fine for 18 months and now it's junk. There is no picture, just as described in earlier reviews....blinking red light. Called Customer support and that was a waste of my time. They acted like they've never heard of this complaint before. Really? I'm going to Best Buy to purchase a Samsung. Enough said.
Summary: I actually hate this TV. At first the plasma was fantastic but within a few months a dreaded loud buzzing occured. Many others have documented this flaw with the Panasonic plasmas. After 2 attempts at repair, I'm done with this thing. Turning it on only inspires me to shop for other televisions. Although Panasonic is a very reputable set maker, I'm so disenchanted with my experience that I'll never buy from them again. Bottom line: don't buy this model.
Summary: This is a great TV, and I have been very happy with it. It has a clear, bright picture, easily visible from almost all angles. The one drawback is that it puts out heat like a radiator! Our cats love it, but I cannot help but think that this is probably not the most energy-efficient choice out there.
TV was amazing the short time it worked, Panasonic Customer service SUCKS!!!!!

Summary: This tv was amazing. Great value for money, awesome picture quality, and good interface and functionality. That was for the 5.5 months that it worked without a hitch. Considering this thing was my first flat screen, I treated it like my child, and was never anything but fragile and careful with it. Then about 3 weeks ago, I started to notice that there were about 2.5 inch purple horizontal lines moving up the screen.
Summary: I have had this TV for over one month, and am quite satisfied with it. Of course, TV's now have a hundred and one things to set up, and I'm sure I have something else left to set up, but that's the way anymore with any TV. But this one, out of the box, is working fine for me. I would recomend it to a friend.
Summary: I bought the 46" version of this plasma TV in December 2011. After almost three months with this TV, I am very pleased with the picture quality and features especially considering the price of the unit.
Summary: I have owned the Panasonic P50S30 for 8 weeks now and love it. But, I have noticed a flicker while watching games on ESPN through Direct TV. If I put the TV in Game Mode, its not as noticeable. There are no signs of flickers on any other channels. Is this common?
Summary: I really love this TV. I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this TV. Consumer's Reports, C-Net and more. The picture in HD is wonderful. I love to watch shows about the universe and the pics of the nebulas are out-of-this world (pun intended). I enjoy listening to Pandora on the TV and I tune into facebook from time-to-time as well. Great product for the price. Shipping was quick.
Very impressed, beautiful replacement to my old rear-projection Hitachi

Summary: I've had a Rear-Projection Hitachi TV that was the top of the line back in 2003-2004 and made a top Consumer Reports review. About 2 weeks ago, it developed a convergence problem and the colors separated beyond Hitachi's "Magic Focus" ability. Upon further research, I realized that the fix involved electronics knowledge and acquisition of parts I had no interest in trying to acquire. I decided to replace my current TV and began the research process.
