Summary: I have three plasma TVs: a Panasonic TH-42X60U, a Panasonic TC-P50G10, and a Samsung PN51D7000. The 42 and 51 have been professionally calibrated. For the 50, I use the THX setting, sort of. I use a single Logitech Harmony One remote control to control all three systems. The Panasonic 42 is used in the bedroom hanging on a wall above the French doors that lead into the master bath.
Pros: Does a great job for what I need
Cons: Should have much more user set-up options - THX ain't the do-all, end-all.
Summary: This TV worked great for ~11 months and then then just shut off on its own one day and won't turn back on. It just blinks the Power Light 5 times, over and over. I scheduled an in-home repair and 20 days later the local service center is STILL waiting on the part. Won't by anything Panasonic again.
Summary: Mine was great while it worked. So far two A boards have gone out within the first 8 months, and the parts are not available to fix it. First time, the regional service center took a board out of a new set and fixed mine with it, because A-boards were on backorder. Second time(two months later), it breaks down again and they have had a 'part on backorder' for over 6 weeks and they have left me with a broken TV and no estimate on how long it will take to get a part.
Summary: This huge TV was delivered on time and installed by two very competent and knowledgeable gentlemen who took the time to explain all the functions to me, and removed all the packaging (and there is a lot). We just love the huge screen, bright enough in our south facing room. Have had it over 7 months now and the acid test was the world cup from South Africa. Superb picture, no motion artifacts and a perfect view from any angle in the room.
Panasonic is a joke, Viera Cast is not updated as advertised (Netflix)

Summary: I purchased this TV almost a year ago. It has had some disappointments but it was in my expatiation of the reviews and specs. My biggest concern now is that Panasonic is going to disappoint all of us that had paid a quite of bit of money for their products that has Viera Cast the last two years.
Summary: With new found riches of my tax return in my pockets, I performed an extensive search for a new television. At first I favored LCD, however, I chose plasma based upon reviews indicating the excellence of the picture. I purchased a 50" Panasonic TC-P50G10 plasma television along with a Panasonic SC-BT300 home theater system and I am very impressed with the picture and sound quality. The colors are strong and natural. The blacks are deep and the contrast very good.
Summary: We purchased this TV December 2009. From day one we have absolutely loved the picture quality. With HD reception you will be hard pressed to find a better picture. It's OK with standard definition but if your going to purchase an HD TV take advantage of it's capabilities and use HD programing! For those of you who may be hesitating because of Plasma's reputation of having pronounced glare ...you will be pleasantly surprised with this Plasma TV.
Summary: To start with, I don't play video games and I have my sound running out to two Paradigm Atom speakers, so I rated those aspects of the TV as average as I don't have any experience with them. It wouldn't be fair for me to rate them a 5, nor would it be fair to for me to rate them a 1. The standard-definition (SD) picture is as crisp as it can be blown up to 50".
Summary: The TV is great! I love the picture. The color is wonderful; clear and crisp. The sound is pair with any other TV, nothing to brag about, but ok for watching TV. I personally went to a serious surround sound, but my personal opinion. The thing weights close to 80 pounds so make sure you get a GOOD mount or stand. Do NOT skimp on this part!
