Summary: This is a great TV - when it is working. About 7 months after purchasing, the HDMI inputs stopped working. I called it in to the Panasonic and have made no fewer than 8 calls to the service center to get this addressed, and now, 3 weeks later I'm still waiting for an estimated time that it will be...
Summary: I purchased this TV based on extensive research and reviews done in the market. On this site, and many others, the television quality was noted as the best in the market for it's price and size. After 5 months I think the picture quality is solid.
A practical review from a techie who appreciates quality
18 June 2013
Summary: If you are looking for a TV for ~1k, look no further. My wife and I debated the merits of plasma vs. LCD's and ended up diving into the plasma arena. After a good week of viewing a lot of different content and playing some games, I can say that we are truly happy that we chose plasma over LCD.
Summary: We're really enjoying our Panasonic Plasma TV. It was a big purchase for us personally. I've never spent that kind of money on a TV before and I was a little hesitant at first. But it was well worth every penny to date so far.
Summary: Received the TV in less than a week. Delivery guys brought it in the house, unwrapped & placed it on the stand. It was cold out so they couldn't turn it on. It has been running for 6 weeks. Beautiful picture after I set it up (after the 100 hour break-in) to the custom specs from CNET.
Summary: A beautiful television set with almost everything you need in today's HiTech world. It's plasma, it's Smart and it shows 3D. In fact it's even able to convert 2D media to 3D (with the push of a button on the remote).
Summary: If you're anything like me you have taken a lot (see days) of time reading reviews to make a decision. I read every review I could read on the first 10 pages of a "best HDTV under 1000" Google search.
