Summary: Amazing picture quality- Looks great with whatever you throw at it. However, be aware that the THX display modes (which look the best) disable the pixel orbiter which is designed to reduce image retention. I say reduce because even outside these modes the TV will retain images.
Summary: Purchased this TV on 08/27/12 and received it shortly thereafter. Love the TV and love the picture quality. Yesterday, I went to turn it on and nothing happened. I noticed that the light at the bottom of the TV was blinking, pausing for 5 seconds, and then blinking again continuously.
Summary: I have had this TV for about 30 days now and thought I would write a review. Overall the TV is incredibly nice and for the most part everyone else's reviews are spot on. Here is a brain dump of my $.02: -If you are an Amazon Prime member the free "white glove shipping" is not stellar.
Summary: After seeing the 2012 HDTV Shootout, I decided that I wanted to compare the Samsung UN60ES8000 to this plasma. I hooked them both up in my living room to a FIOS DVR using the component and HDMI cables. When something looked different, I would verify by changing cables to ruleout the cables.
Nice picture, could use more rear panel connections

Summary: I am NOT a professional reviewer as many here are, so take what I say with a grain of salt. (And I have only owned the TV for a couple of weeks) This is my first plasma TV. I was choosing between a Samsung 60e8000 and a Panasonic 55vt50.
Summary: Great picture, a ton of options, sound quality could be better, touch pad remote is useless. Why the tv does not swivel on its base I will never understand. Overall great tv with a great picture, blacks are unreal how good they are, a little overpriced and missing the swivel but all in all happy...
Great picture quality... Pick an early delivery time if you live in a cold weather state..

Summary: I purchased this in Mid December and requested a delivery date a couple of weeks later due to vacation issues. I requested a later time delivery but would recommend to others that they consider doing an earlier delivery if possible.
Summary: Love the picture. More than bright enough in daylight with no direct light on the screen. The only problem is that we watch a political channel that constantly displays its logo. The logo has burned in. It is only noticed on very light pictures of white or a light sky.
Summary: Great quality and only 3/4" wider than earlier Panasonic 50" (much narrower bezel), but I was almost ready to return the unit when I first turned on based on what appeared to be a dim picture; adjusting the default setting fixed the issue, but even in a dimly lit basement it initially appeared...
