Picture phenomenal but TV/remote have issues - frustrating

Summary: The picture is so clear that it was almost disconcerting at first. Couldn't ask for more. Remote is a disappointment. Most remotes you can generally point in any direction and the TV responds. Not this one. The other huge issue I have is that the TV often drops the WiFi signal forcing you to re-connect each time. Signal is strong and computers in room have no issue. Older Samsung plasma (still going great guns) does not have these issues.
Summary: I am very happy with the performance of this TV. The blacks are really black and the whites are very white with all the other colors true to life. Performs well in a bright sun lit room or in subdued lighting. Was very surprised at the quality of sound and sound separation when watching HD/Blue Ray movies or DVD's. Like the narrow frame around the picture so it isn't so bulky looking as others that I have seen.
Summary: Love the Panasonic Plasma picture. The OS is a little clunky and awkward, and the advertisements are completely unnecessary (Yes, there are unsolicited ads that pop up on a TV that you already paid for), but the image quality is amazing. I wish I would have been able to get the 55", but they were back ordered.
Summary: This was a great purchase. I love it, the shipping was great. It was difficult to get by bose sound system hooked up but eventually easy to figure out. The colors are great, deep blacks indeed.
If you are thinking of a new TV with amazing Picture Quality under $1000, the 50ST60 is it

Summary: I am a big fan of plasma TVs. I own a P42G10 from 2009. I love it, I didn't realize how much better the newer plasmas were until I set up my 50ST60. The picture is amazing. I am currently running some slides for break ( for calibration). So far I have not seen any image retention. I mostly game ( fighters) and use it with XBMC. I used D'Nice calibration settings, and wow picture is bright and amazing. Colors are great. It is as bright as any LCD.
Best TV of all time! (Input Lag is discussed in this review)

Summary: By now you have probably read other reviews praising this TV and explaining all the basics. So I will only briefly cover them: - Best Picture Quality/Black Levels I have ever seen without spending $1800+, and even in that class it is often just as good! - For Plasma beginners, make sure to go to cnet and get good picture settings to start out (just google "best st60 settings") after you have got a solid 100 hours put in (or even if you don't, IMO, its best for beginners)...
Summary: This is simply a fantastic TV; colors are beautiful; easy setup based on setting I found on the internet. Our family room is generally bright in the afternoons, but we found this TV to shine through, unlike other plasmas. Definitely 5 stars.
Summary: It has taken me about 8 months to get to the point where I finally decided to buy this TV, and wow! I was thinking that maybe it wasn't going to be quite as good as what I wanted, but was I ever wrong. A number of years ago I bought a Pioneer Kuro, which I still have, but I was surprised to discover that the black levels on this tv actually appear to be close to my Kuro, and under certain lighting conditions the blacks even appear darker.
Summary: I've had this TV for about six months now and absolutely love it. The blacks are incredible and the detail in portrait shots tops both my old Samsung LCD as well as some newer LCD models that my relatives have. Docking it a star because there's one small stuck pixel in the top right of the screen.
