Summary: The TV is great, which you can read from the other reviewers. I mostly wish to comment on the shipping company, to hopefully ease some minds. Amazon shipped the TV through CEVA. I searched for information about CEVA shipping TVs purchased through Amazon, and found almost all negative things said about CEVA. This made me really nervous, and prepared for a horrible experience. When I ordered the TV, I was able to set an appointment day and time on Amazon.
Summary: We are enjoying this tremendously in our small media room, viewing distance about 7-1/2 ft. This is a great TV at a great price. We read the reviews carefully before selecting this make and model. Terrific picture. You will want to add a sound system, but the built-in sound is pretty decent [if you have to use it]. This is a great TV at a great price. We haven't used the 3-D yet.
Summary: We did a ton of research before deciding to purchase the Panasonic ST60. We read through every review on Amazon's website as well as the reviews on CNETs site. We were confident that, for the money, we would be purchasing a HDTV with excellent picture quality. We are your average family with 4 children. As of right now (I'm sure this will change) our gaming is limited to Wii games. As such, we cannot make any comment about the input lag.
Originally went with LED, but so glad I returned it for this plasma!

Summary: I originally went with a high end, brand name LED TV -- guess I just got caught up in the hype. The LED TV looked nice and the picture was good, not great. When it came to dark images, it was simply awful -- and really only gave the best viewing when you sat directly in the center of the TV, so not ideal for a living room setting with sitting areas at an angle. I sent the LED TV back and decided on this Panasonic Plasma.
Summary: I usually don't write reviews. But I was compelled to write about this TV. It is phenomenal. I did my research prior to purchasing and read all of the glowing reviews about this TV, frankly I was a little skeptical. But after spending a week viewing this TV and comparing it to my wonderful 5 year old LG 47" LED the difference is night and day. The picture is crystal clear, the contrast is amazing and all of the smart TV functions and apps work great.
