Summary: Researched and CNET convinced me to try this TV even though it said Panasonic was not going to make them anymore. Said it had a great picture and it does, but not out of the box. Fortunately, CNET had provided it's test settings for what they considered the best picture. No problem trying to figure how to reset. I followed their recommendations. WOW! What a difference from the default settings. Paid more for the plasma (still got a good price) vs.
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: I love this tv. I bought my first flatscreen back in 2008 and I figured 5 years later I was ready for a new one (not really my friend planted the idea in my head). My friend purchased the VT60 and when I saw that tv I was blown away! I read some reviews about this one and with an impending bonus, I figured my friends suggestion was valid. I scoured over every review I could find about this tv. I watched youtube videos over and over.
Beautiful Pix but be careful if you want a Soundbar

Summary: I've never written a review but I wanted everyone to know about my disappointment in the soundbar connection. Here's the net of it: for some reason, there is no function on this model to turn off the TV's internal speakers. Consequently, should you like to use TV or Cable remote to control the volume on the soundbar you are also controlling the volume on the TV.
Summary: A little background on me so you can see I'm just an average tech enthusiast but I wouldn't call myself a professional videophile. I'm an average customer who can be a little anal about a TV's picture quality and really don't give a damn about it's sound quality (I think a tv in this category should be hooked up with a quality surround sound system anyway). I don't do gaming, so I can't discuss that with any authority , and this is my first 3D TV.
Summary: Replaced a Pioneer PDP - 502MX from 2001. I loved that TV...one of the best pictures I've ever seen on a flat screen (even 11 years later). However, pixels finally started to go. This is a worthy replacement.
Summary: This is the 2nd Panasonic 3d TV I have owned. My kid threw a toy through my older P55ST30, so I just upgraded it with this TV (and screen protector) since I loved that TV. The TV picture is awesome, as good as my 2010 TV with a little more options and setting that make no real difference to my eye, but great nonetheless. The 3d is horrible on this TV, I'm actually hoping for an update and check manually every other day.
One of the best TV's you can get for the price, unless you like 3-D...

Summary: CNET gave this TV it's highest rating ever, and for good reason. The picture quality is amazing. The blacks are deep, no uniformity issues, and no pan lines or dirty screen effect. I was in love...until I tried the 3-D. The CNET review said that the 3-d was subpar compared to the competition. They were too kind, because the 3-D is the worst I have seen in any TV.
