Summary: So it is great TV, I was happy until October 2012. Few light colored belts appear on the screen. Display panel itself start dying. Luckily I bought mack warranty and folks simply reimbursed me. Otherwise I would say that it was almost perfect except it is also power hungry (may work as small heater). I try to search for more info about plasma reliability and cannot find any data. Everybody claims 100khours. Well I often do not turn on TV for few days...
Great, except for fluctuating brightness issues. Panasonic unhelpful in repairing their defect.

Summary: I was an early adopter of this Viera 58" 3D television. I bought the TV in 2010, and exactly two years later I called Panasonic about this annoying fluctuation of brightness and gamma in the darks of the TV. Essentially, when a movie cuts from a dark or bright shot, the whole TV changes brightness and pulls you out of the experience. It's really annoying. Panasonic gave me the usual "turn off C.A.T.S. and set contrast to blah blah blah". I did every thing they suggested.
Pros: after one week board blew. but Panasonic service rocks it was in and replaced within 4 days. TV has best HD/Blu-ray Picture i have EVER seen and the 3D I love it the idea of glasses I didn't like but it grew on me. Also when I purchased this TV @ Xmas 20
Cons: After one week board blew. Other then this I have no other issues to date but that could change who knows.
Summary: I had bought and received this product in january for a great price 1000 dollars less than actual price. The tv is amazing 2d picture quality is exceptional especially while watching hd channels, 3d content is the best i have seen on other models and brands have not seen any cross talk on any 3d content i have watched. I highly recommend this product to anyone. As for the seller they have great prices on all products. The products also come as described.
Summary: I am not an expert. We had looked a many televisions and this one beat them all. The 3D is amazing!!! I must say the viera cast does not have all the offerings that the Samsung TV had, but how ofter are you going to facebook on your TV set...exactly. I am very content with having the amazon app we can stream movies for free since I am amazon prime.
Summary: This is a pretty easy TV to review... Put simply, when people daydream about the perfect TV this is just about it... It is obviously the product of many, many years of technology and experience coming together to form an absolutely amazing product... It is as much a sight to behold as it is a TV to watch and you will fall in love with it very quickly...
Summary: i am 3D fan and has hunted 3D TV for a long time. Many TV have some problems to match other 3D movies or watch online blu-ray movies or download speed. This TV is the NUMBER ONE in TV history without any argument. I only pay $9 to watch unlimited blu-ray movies online and their pictures are soooooo sharp! if you want to avoid lots of headache things about online movies or you pay special attention to picture quality. This is the only model to pick up in TV market.
Summary: TV Positives: I did my homework prior to purchase. I started with a very negative impression of Plasma TV's and have since moved to favoring them. I have had over two weeks to experience this TV and I have not been disappointed with it's performance. The 3D is amazing and the TV is fairly simple to set up. The picture is crisp and clear from almost any angle and thus far I have not experienced distortion.
