Summary: get this while it lasts - panasonic is exiting the plasma tv business and this is one of the last great models that will be ever made. my only issues - glare and you will need a darker room than where I have mine located (very sunny family room)
Summary: I have owned a number of Plasma TVs over the years...Panasonic simply makes the BEST plasma of all. And I have yet to see an LCD or LED match the picture quality of a Panasonic Plasma. The VT60 series is the one of their best Plasma TVs regardless of price...which is very reasonable for a TV of this quality.
Summary: Like many others, I have done some research on my next TV to buy. What we considered were mainly LED/LCD's because that were what we've been using. We were looking at LG LA8600 and Samsung F8000 because they were what I thought were bang for the buck for value. My friend suggested that i looked into Panasonic's plasmas since he has one from several years back and have been very happy with them.
Summary: Love love LOVE this TV. My husband did a lot of research into the best TV and when we found this deal on Amazon, we decided it was time to upgrade. Picture is clear, sound is great - even without surround-sound - and easy to use. Only thing I am not a fan of is the banner ads, but those can be disabled. Very sturdy base, which is important as we have a toddler in the house.
Incredibly bad product support from Panasonic ruins otherwise exciting purchase
Tony C., Amazon
2 November 2013
Summary: Great picture on this TV but incredibly bad product support from Panasonic. Was missing the 4 simple cable clamps out of the box. Spent 2 hours on the phone with Panasonic trying to get these supplied. Multiple long holds later they promised to send out the clamps only to call back the next day asking for more information and still no clamps have been promised definitively.
Summary: I purchased the P55VT60 after much research, to replace a 46 inch Samsung LCD. At the start, I was convinced that LCD was the way to go. Not sure why exactly. All my research and advice of videophile friends, colleagues and family caused me to consider getting a plasma instead. It came down to the Samsung F8500 and the Panasonic ST. After looking at them, a lot, side by side, I couldn't resist the VT.
Summary: I was very excited to get this TV - I thought it was a great value for the price paid. I began to experience strange HDMI outtages after the first month of use - I just figured that I had bad cables/cable box/receiver. After extensive testing with support from my cable provider (changing boxes, cables, etc) we finally determined that all HDMI inputs on the television are dead. While I can still use the SMART features, I can't connect and use any of my other devices.
Very Disappointed, burn in after only 3 months (Dish Logo from browsing the Guide)
23 August 2013
Summary: I had high expectations of this TV and while I must admit that I like the look and some of the features of this TV, I am highly disappointed with the Quality of this Plasma. Burn in should not happen so soon and trust me I have been very careful to not watch channels with static logos or images. The burn in I have experience is from browsing my guide on DISH. I can now see the DISH logo in the top right side of the screen when there is a light color like white.
