Summary: I've had my 60" for two years and it just went out. Picture was great and no burning. But, they apparently have a problem with their internal control boards on several models. I would choose different manufacturer!
Summary: I love this television, but it's a hard one to rate for reasons that will become apparent in a moment I bought this model specifically because I love Panasonic's plasmas, didn't want features like 3D, and did not want to spend money to get things like wireless connectivity (I have a PS3 that I get there with). And overall, I'm pretty happy. The picture is stunning.
It breaks the their service is the worst I've ever seen
15 September 2012
Summary: Where to start. It's a good TV, as long as it works. I was happy with it. It broke suddenly, completely without warning, after only 7 months of ownership. The good part, it's still under warranty. And so will your journey begin. The tech came out that week to look at the TV and found it needed a main board. No problem he said, he'll order the part and should be back the following week to fix it. Sounded fair to me, and if you asked me that would be ok customer service.
Summary: I bought this item from an Amazon reseller. It was used and labeled in very good condition. It has some cosmetic blemishes but it works fine. I have it next to another Panasonic of the same model purchase new. You can't tell a difference in the picture quality. If they had any more, I would consider buying them also - the price was great!
Summary: After owning this TV for 14 months, 2 circuit boards burned out in 1 week. A quick Internet search informed me that the "7 blinks of death" is very common with this TV. When these particular boards go bad, the red light on the front of the TV blinks 7 times, code for "you're screwed." Since the warranty expired 3 weeks ago, Panasonic will not cover the $550 repair. Apparently, they extended the warranty (by 4 weeks) because so many have this problem.
Summary: I bot the Panasonic Viera TC-P60S30 from amazon.com Feb 2012. The TV got here the day they said it would in good shape. it was easy to set up. Had to adjust the colors, to my liking. has a great pitcher for the money I paid for it. It stopped working after having it for 4 months (would not turn on had 4 red flashs the power indicator was blinking) three weeks ago. I called Panasonic.they set up a TV repair man to come to my house.
Summary: Absolutely great television after a year in service. Colors are vibrant and tv gives off very little heat. Speakers are exceptional. Packaging superior with shipping inside home. Tv easy to set up with a single person but two people is best.
Summary: Bought this tv a while back. The first one I purchased was broke and arrived late and thus I was extremely pissed off because I invited people over for the Bengals vs Browns game that weekend. After getting a discount for the hardship, my new one arrived weeks later. This tv is very, very great for the price.
