Summary: I was skeptical of this set at first, when viewed in-store, it seemed dull and dim compared to the much brighter LCD's on display. Those employees, like a couple reviewers here, just have no idea how to properly set it up.

Summary: 4 months into owning the Viera I had to file a warranty claim with Panasonic. I have to say it was extremely easy. They scheduled an in home repair the next week and replaced the board that causes the common problem with this model.
Summary: I ordered this TV Panasonic VIERA TC-P50ST50 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV on 12/16/2012 and received it on 12/20/2012. Unpacked and installed it in short order by myself. It's really big! I got this TV for sub-$600 and I'm a very happy person!
Summary: Unfortunately, we have experienced the same issue the other reviewer noted regarding a loud buzzing, depending on program material brightness. Dark scenes, it is fine. Half a screen white, you get a noticeable buzz. Full white screen, the buzz is so loud that you can hear it from 15 ft. away.
Summary: This is probably the best bang for the buck TV at this size. It's a no frills model with a fantastic picture. Personally, I'm not interested in 3D, and I can get wi-fi connectivity through a blu ray player for less than buying the smart tv model.
Summary: I've owned a Panasonic plasma for more than a year now. I got an amazing deal on a 50 inch 720p display, so I couldn't pass it up. I did a lot of research concerning the 720/1080p debate prior to buying, and couldn't justify the extra $200 for what seemed to be a negligible difference in picture.
Summary: This is my third Panasonic Plasma TV - and yes the other two are going strong. I am a believer that Panasonic delivers an awesome product and this TV is no acception. It is NOT a smart TV, as it is for my kids attic "hangout.
Summary: I was in the market for a simple 50" 1080p TV. It was for a man-cave and was only going to hook up to a PS3... games with my kids, Amazon Instant Video, and PSN movies. I didn't need wi-fi, didn't need 3D, and only needed 1 HDMI input. This TV comes with 2.
Summary: I have a 6 year old Panasonic Plasma @ 43 inches on the main floor of this split level home, and very happy with it. So it was not a difficult choice to choose Panasonic as the brand of choice for a wide screen in a new media room. My minimum acceptable size was 50 inch, max size 60 inch.
