Summary: I bought this set locally because I sell them at a retail store. Customers always run to the LCD or LED TV's because they are the brightest. None in my opinion are as black or as accurate in color as this TV or any other plasma set. Next time you shop in a brick and mortar store always look at the colors green, and the flesh tones, plasmas produce a natural greens, NOT a phosphorous looking color green and movies look like 35mm film not the appearance of being shot on a...
Summary: This is a great tv. The picture quality is amazing, and setup is really easy. I was looking for a no-frills tv, without 3D. The tv connects to your wifi, and its ready to go. It connects to netflix, and has a connection to other online movie providers (Amazon, hulu, you tube,etc.). The only slight issue is that there is no filter on the screen, so if there is light, you'll see a reflection on the tv. It doesn't bother me, but know that it happens.
Summary: After remodeling our basement and media room , we needed to find a nice TV. We found that most of the LED offerings on the market were unacceptable. Horrible clouding and flashlighting, very poor black levels, etc... Plus, to get an LED TV that can compare to the picture quality of this S60, we would have needed to spend $3000+. At first we were hesitant to go plasma because of "burn-in", thickness, and some other issues on older models.
Summary: Don't let the stories of image retention or burn in sway you from purchasing Plasma as your primary PC monitor. I currently use the 60S60 as a home theater PC monitor for gaming, movies, and internet. Picture quality and "input lag" were the only two concerns while I was shopping for a new monitor. IMO Plasma delivers the best PQ versus equivalently priced LCD, LED. Input lag was a concern of mine for gaming, particularly fast paced games and first person shooters.
Great basic plasma with large screen for affordable price

Summary: This is our 3rd Panasonic plasma TV. Two 50's preceeded it. This 65" model was a great value for the quality at $1500. You must tweek the video settings to get the best out of it, however. The standard setting is too dim and the CATS system just doesn't work well, so turn it off. Play with it till you get it right and you'll be rewarded. Our other units are 2 and 4 years old and have had no problems.
Summary: After exhaustive research and subsequent comparison shopping, I decided on this TV in its 65" form factor. I am extremely pleased with the purchase (and subsequent Amazon delivery), and can recommend it heartily, especially considering its price point. Another reviewer echoed an important sentiment in these reviews to note if you're upgrading from an older TV: the performance of this set will almost undoubtedly trounce your older TV for a fraction of its original cost.
Summary: Panasonic as far as I am concerned is the best producer of television sets in the world right now. Nothing compares to the picture clarity and quality of a Panasonic Plasma TV and this model is no different. I replaced a 42" Plasma from 5 or 6 years ago with this model and a week later I'm not even slightly regretting the choice. Update: Recently found out Panasonic has discontinued their Plasma models.
PS4 and Xbox One certified!!! they both run amazing ..no lag

Summary: Seriously for the money you spend, you won't find a better deal on this planet. This TV only has about 20 hrs of usage time but Im already amazed of the out of box picture quality its outstanding. Then I looked the model # up on cnet .com and used their inputted professional picture settings, and was completely blown away with the black levels..sure their are TVs that are better but they'll have to cost a lot more to match .
Summary: This TV is awesome. I got the TV when it was scheduled with no shipping damage. I installed in my bedroom and it worked perfectly. It is very easy to setup including WiFi. I did change it the network connection to wired, only because i get a full 100mb to the TV for streaming. Netflix, Amazon, HULU streaming is excellent and easy to launch and run. I installed a Samsung Blu-Ray player to it and the HD resolution on movies like Nemo and Toy Story as just superb.
Summary: Spent a lot of time researching TVs. Attracted to plasmas due to excellent black levels and good motion handling. Ideally you will want your room to be dark and not have a lot of lights reflecting off the screen. Picture quality is excellent, make sure to do some tweaking outlined on various avs forums. Panasonic is the Plasma of choice on the market right now, its sad they won't continue making them. Got this when it was $650 and don't have a single regret.
