Summary: Wow - best picture quality that I have seen outside of those 4k TV's. Some of the top tier LED's are good, and while they are cheaper than plasma, picture quality is not up to par with plasma. So this is a great TV to get while you can, as Panasonic and their top rate plasmas are now out of the market. It is extremely thin, the bezels are narrow, and picture quality is just about as good as it gets in current HD.
Fantastic image quality, smart TV bit is handy, but not needed for my use.

Summary: I've had this TV for about 10 months or so now, its absolutely fantastic, excellent image quality, if you can eliminate all the light in your environment and turn the light down on this set you get some amazing blacks on screen. It has amazing color, its plenty bright for a plasma. The chrome strip around the rim is beautiful. I use a computer on this display about 90% of the time, and chromecast ever once in a while.
Summary: We have now had this TV for over a year. It works perfectly. The picture is viewable from all angles. Don't be fooled by the rated max power consumption between a plasma and an LCD TV. LCD panels work by blocking light. Thus an LCD TV, whether LED or fluorescent illumination, use pretty much the same power no matter what type of scene is being displayed. Plasma TVs produce light as needed in each cell. Dark scenes use little power whereas bright scenes use more.
Summary: Best picture I've ever seen in a darkened room. Looks good during the day or with lights on, but blown away by image quality in the dark. Broken in with 100 hours of colored slides and D-Nice calibration settings. Couldn't be happier with this Plasma. Too bad this is the end of Panasonic Plasma production. I have another Panasonic Plasma I bought in 2004 that still looks great.
Our Fifth Panasonic Plasma And We Have Loved Them All

Summary: This is, in a word "outstanding" . The picture is simply amazing. I would recommend this to anyone! Now is the time as I hear that Panasonic is going to discontinue the manufacturing of plasmas. Our oldest plasma was a 2006 42". We have NEVER had a problem with any of them.
Summary: This is the best TV I have ever owned. my one before this was a Samsung un55D8000 that was terrible compared to this. Great transition. looks spectacular. Good sound for a tv. Responds great to the remote. Best picture quality I have ever seen. I saw the bad reviews. I just think those people need help.. I bought the extended warranty just incase. Not a single problem yet.
Summary: The picture is great and the colors you get from this plasma are amazing. You do get some glare on the screen from lamps, windows, etc but I was aware when I bought it that could happen. Its meant for a darker room.
Summary: I give this 5 stars because it is B E A U tiful. I'd consider giving it 4 stars for not having a bunch of random audio/video in/out options, but it has enough to make it work, and again. The image is freakin amaze. so much wow!
Summary: I purchased this TV without ever getting to see it in person, but I went on advice from friends that have experience with the panasonic plasmas. For the price, I'm now quite positive that there is no other TV of similar size that can match the performance and quality without paying close to 2500 or more. I was most surprised by the quality of the streaming apps like netflix & amazon prime.
