Summary: Problems from day 1, with very loud buzzing. TV just failed about 11 months in, luckily still within the warranty. Everything I read about this TV makes them seem extremely unreliable and prone to failure before 1.5 years from multiple points.
Summary: Great tv in dark conditions. If you change the setting it's decent enough in a well lit room too. Customer support is lacking and the call center reps I spoke to well complete tools. Haven't figured out how to wire headphones to the TV set and noone at Panasonic seems to have a clue either.
After only 8 months this expensive TV starts with issues

Summary: I bought this TV in July 2012 and on April 9, 2013 it starts blinking a red light on the console and will not turn on. As I read through various blogs it seems this is an flaw in some circuit board that needs to be replaced. Really!!!
Summary: Tv was great while it actually worked. After only two months of limited use the tv would no longer turn on. I thought...no problem, Panasonic will take care of me. Let me tell you, I was wrong.
Summary: Bought this tv on 5/23. It suffered from a bad panel and was picked up for repair in mid August. I went 4 weeks without a tv while a repair was attempted and the tv was eventually replaced. The new tv operated for approximately 20 hours of operation before suffering a 7 blinks failure.
Summary: After 1 year and 2 weeks my TNPA5621 board went out. I really liked the TV but this is unacceptable. If you have problems like mine. Search for a diagnostic manual. If you have some basic technical skills, you may be able to fix this yourself. i did. A repair would have cost me 450 bucks.
Summary: amazing tv that only lasts for 1 year, or less. no wonder it's so cheap. customer service is AWFUL to try to get them to fix your tv. they'll cover it, but it's awful. might be better if it didn't fall under the warranty so you can save yourself the hassle and get something that doesn't totally...
great tv awesome color....and then problems after only 3days

Summary: Got this TV to replace a 50 Samsung plasma. Worked great till tonight, watching HBO when a huge rainbow like effect came over the entire screen. Though it was the channel changed it same thing. Had to turn TV off to fix.
Initial performance top notch, but a reliability issue

Summary: I have purchased two Panasonic plasma's in the last 36 months. The predecessor to this model. The pictures were great, I was happy with the final price and the initial performance of the product. Both plasma's have failed in the last four months.
