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. No issues with it and we have a very nice tv to stream movies it and watch youtube...
Awesome TV, but be wary of image retention/burn in
28 January 2013
Summary: Love this TV. Went with CNET on this one, and so far I agree that this TV has some of the best image quality I have ever seen in this price range. We are constantly blown away by how good the TV looks. The only negative note I wanted to share: Image retention/burn-in Let me start by saying that I did NOT do the 90-200 hour color slide burn in that some people suggest. I didn't like the idea of leaving an unattended plasma running that long. I'm also a gamer.
Summary: Anytime I make a big electronics purchase I do my homework. I always want the best product for the money and in this case I would have to say I made the right choice. The picture is perfect (videophile-level). I couldn't be more pleased with the picture. The sound quality is just average (the reason I only gave 4 and not 5 stars). Personally, I didn't care about the sound as I have the set hooked up to a home theater system.
Gorgeous TV, Terrible Internet, Super Amazon Product Support! Panasonic not so much.

Summary: (Updated 2/26/2013) I purchased this TV to replace the Samsung UN40ES6100 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV that I purchased from Best Buy and on which I have given an Amazon review dated November 27. This Panasonic TV is sweet to Samsung's sour. The picture is terrific with deep blacks, white whites and flawless color control.
Summary: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST50 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV I've had this set for about 3 weeks now. I've been very satisfied with the picture quality. Watching HD sources is a pleasure. I find myself watching things I ordinarily wouldn't watch just because of how gorgeous the picture is . The 50" screen is not too big at all for me at about 90"inches away. The controls are easy and intuitive to use The basic set up is easy.
Summary: I purchased the 50" version and had Amazon deliver it. The white glove service was several days faster than promised and they did a wonderful job. TV was quite good - but not as good as I expected (I already own a 2-yr old Panasonic Plasma that we love.) Did the basic cnet settings and ran the solid color slideshow over a couple of nights to help with the break-in period.
