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.
Summary: Amazing picture quality, USEFUL Smart TV Apps (Especially YouTube - with this you dont even need Chromecast), and good performance under bright lighting (If you stare directly at it, during the day). Of course, if there is a lot of light and you are at a very skewed angle relative to the TV, you do see reflections, but this isnt a deal breaker.
Summary: I have had a lot of flat-panel TV's over the course of the past ten years, but I just got this one a few days ago and am truly amazed. - The picture is amazing (both 2D and 3D) - Tremendous feature set - Easy to set up and use - Incredible value If you're like me and don't want to suffer from analysis paralysis when choosing a new TV, do yourself a favor and stop looking - this one will not disappoint.
