Pros: - Fascinating picture quality and even superb image quality in Cinema or THX mode. So far as picture quality is concerned, this is the best I can get. - Excellent surround sound for the sleek speakers. Surprisingly amazing. - Pleasant design, especially t
Cons: - The outside, surrounding air gets heated. - Very high power consumption. - Though rarely occurs, there are instances of mild ghost impressions.
Summary: I have owned this TV for almost 8 months now and it is by far the greatest electronics investment I have ever made behind my PS3. Everything about it is astonishing. The picture quality is superb, and only surpassed by the elusive Pioneer Kuros. 3D, which I bought as a side-feature, is gorgeous. Plasma is the way to go for 3D. But I got this for the 2D picture and can't complain one bit. If you see this TV, you will appreciate the infinite amount of praise it deserves.
Summary: The TV is incredible. The 3D is fantastic, and the 2D is equally so. Colors are deep and rich and saturate the experience in nuanced tones. There's a reason this TV is consistently rated at the top of the list by professional review sites and why so many people recommend it on Amazon. If you want a 3DTV, the TV25 series can't be beat, not in quality or in price. It's changed my attitude toward home entertainment.
Summary: I bought this TV to jump into 3D, mostly for 'Avatar', although I now own several other 3D titles. This TV replaced a 50" Hitachi I've had for about 4 years. The picture quality is just amazing. It is much brighter and crisper with more detail and contrast than the TV it replaced, even though it is the same screen size and resolution.
"Amazing 2D, good 3D. Very glad I bought the VT20."

Pros: The 2D performance is stellar. Blacks are very deep. Other colors really shine against blacks. Blu-Ray movies look great. Xbox video games run smoothly and the sharpness of the image is great. Simple controls for picture quality and general tv setup.
Cons: 3D images have reduced brightness. Unclear if online connectivity and apps will get updated to new versions due out with the 2011 models. Doesn't convert 2D to 3D. Would like to have Hulu and other online apps.
Pros: I've spent a lot of time doing online research and in person side by side comparisons the V25 is top notch almost no ghosting with superior deep blacks and colors really pop out, you cant compare it with the competition even against the PN58C8000
Cons: Expensive, No 2D to 3D conversion which isn't such a big deal since it doesn't work all that well anyway, Looks plane Jane until you turn it on wish it had better styling, and as of most plasma T.V's it has a minor buzz if your 4 in away : )
