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'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.
Summary: I am pleased with the new TV. My wife keeps asking why I got a plasma rather than the "other kind" our son-in-law has. I haven't told her that Panasonic has gotten out of the plasma business. After viewing it for 100 hours, I adjusted the settings according to an online advice article. Great improvement, but the wife keeps saying that the image isn't as sharp as SIL's. I think they have their 60" Samsung set to a higher contrast, higher vivid, etc.
"Bandwidth Too Low" Error when streaming Amazon Prime HD Movies
2 October 2013
Summary: Purchased the Panasonic Viera P50ST60 (50" plasma) about three months ago and have enjoyed watching movies (incl. HD) via the Amazon Instant Video app with my Amazon Prime subscription. About two weeks ago, I began getting an error message "Bandwidth Too Low" whenever I tried to watch an Amazon Prime HD movie on this set. Recently Amazon has made almost all of the Prime movies available in HD only. Called Cable/Internet provider and upgraded broadband (now 5x faster).
Summary: I returned a Sharp 70 inch LCD for this model and I am very happy with it thus far. Plasma produces a far better picture to my eyes than LCD and this TV delivers a magnificent picture. I used the settings provided by CNET and sat down to test it out watching the first scenes of Prometheus. The difference in definition was night and day with the Sharp. Details in the rocks, the sky, and the breaking clouds, was exceptionally clear.
