Summary: Lovely picture. Nice 3D. This is the basis for the rating being as much as 3 stars. I am currently annoyed so this review will focus more on the negatives ) the positives have been roundly appreciated by other reviewers.). --For being a premium plasma display, it should have somewhat better controls access (gray scale, gamma, etc). --The shared component / composite video is completely lame.
Summary: I purchased this TV in August 2012 and have been extremely happy with it, the picture is excellent. A few days ago I noticed that I had an image showing on the screen on all my channels, a retained image from a channel I watch frequently. I contacted Panasonic through email and they advised me run an "Anti-Image Retention" scan in the Setup menu. I ran the scan for the full 15 minutes and the problem still persists so I let them know.
