Summary: I'm sorry to see Panasonic leaving plasma market. I had the 50" 720p (purchased from Best Buy in 2007 after the Amazon delivery disaster), and I understand why this version is so much more affordable. The back panel is flimsy sheet metal, and there is a loud buzzing sound from the back of the TV.
Summary: I bought this thing a few months ago. So far I love the picture. People say dont get it if you have a bright room etc.. well the picture is just as bright in the daytime and super bright at night. I have to tone the picyure down if you are watching in a dark room.
Summary: Very happy with this tv. The picture is great, deep blacks. Built in support for netflix and hulu is nice. The web browser is awful. I was surprised by how thin the tv is, and how much lighter than my previous 50 inch plasma.
Summary: picture is excellent,but internet browser needs alot of improvement.some sites that use to work fine no longer download all of screen and no picture mode for tv while surfing the web. I had a google tv that I used this to replace it because I wanted a second 3D tv,miss my google tv but needed 3d.
Summary: I really don't understand why more plasma flat-screen TVs are not sold. In my opinion the picture quality is superior to most LCD-LED sets. The price is also cheaper on a same size comparison. As for this set, it is my 3rd flat-screen and my second Panasonic plasma set.
Summary: **UPDATE 1/23/2013** - Amazon exchange was painless as always. CEVA delivered and packed up old TV. Make sure TV is removed from wall mount prior. This also needs to happen if you call for service via Panasonic - Actually calibrated TV and went through a 16 hour burn in period.
Summary: Just purchased this tv in mid-dec to replace a 15 yr old 45" rear projection Mitsubishi and just got it installed into a newly constructed cabinet space a couple of weeks ago. So far so good; the picture is amazing although I'm still in the learning mode.
Summary: This TV has the BEST picture I have ever seen, and believe me, I did my research. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars? Image retention. I turned off the pixel orbiter after some really bad advice on several forums. I also had the contrast cranked up due to a calibration suggestion.
Summary: This TV is absolutely beautiful. There are a couple of things you need to be aware of though: The THX modes turn off the pixel orbiter so be aware of this when you use the THX modes to watch regular TV and the digital optical output only outputs stereo.
Summary: I have been enjoying this TV for two months. Great picture and THX light helps for bright rooms. The problem is image retention or burn in. I called Panasonic and their is no warranty for this issue. I thought i was careful breaking it in and Panasonic said their is no break in period.
