Excellent picture, but good luck finding 3D glasses...

Summary: I bought this 60-inch Panasonic plasma TV to replace my 52-inch Samsung LCD, and the difference in picture quality is startling! The user reviews on Amazon and expert reviews on CNet were spot-on: this is the best TV picture for the money in its class. I hesitated to go with a plasma initially because of burn-in fears, but technology has progressed to the point that really is no longer a concern.
Summary: Let me begin by saying I have a 4 year old 50 inch Panasonic Plasma that I really like and have had no problems with. But this 60 inch ST50 that I ordered in May 2012, has recently turned into a big disappointment. I really liked it the first 6 months we had it. The picture is outstanding. However late September the TV started turning itself off and the blinking red lights on the power indicator started.
Summary: I'll keep this review short and sweet, unlike some of my other reviews. I have only had this TV for a few weeks now and I must say the picture quality (PQ) blows away every other display I have ever seen. I have read other reviews mentioning the old Pioneer Plasmas and some brought up the Samsung line but I never really got caught up in the plasma world when those manufacturers reigned supreme.
