Summary: It got one star because of the inital malfunction..., please read on. We were so excited to get this highly-rated Plasma TV. Our old Mitsibushi had gone sour w/vertical lines (after only 4 years!), so we did our due diligence and scoured the web reading everything we could on which TV offers the best HD picture overall. After reading 20+ reviews.., (WHEW!) we decided on Plasma. We wanted the best nighttime TV viewing.
Summary: I've had this HDTV for roughly 56 weeks now. So a little over a year. Just enough time for Panasonic to not honor the warranty. I, like many other 1 star reviews on here, have the same problem. Burn in. I read extensively on the best rated TV's out there and heard that plasma was the way to go. And while that still may be true, stay away from this TV like the plague. YOU WILL SUFFER BURN IN LIKE MANY OTHERS.
Summary: This set worked great for four months. Then it stopped working 3 or 4 weeks ago with a "seven blink" code. It still does not work. First the repairman came and took the set down (with our help - they only send one guy and the TV "must be off the wall") and looked at the insides, then he put it up. Said the part would be in a few days later but it took over a week and a half. Then he came and the part did not fix the problem, so we put the set back up.
