Summary: I bought this TV in Dec 2012. Warranty runs out in Dec. 2013. TV stops working March 2014. This has got to be one of the best TV's for Samsung. Who would want to buy another Panasonic after this? My 37 inch Panasonic plasma is over ten years old and still going strong but this 60 inch is dead. Getting a new power board from shopjimmy.com for about a hundred bucks but TV's that cost this much ($1200.00 back then) should last for many years not a year and three months.
Summary: I did not get mine here. I bought mine at Best Buy (which I normally don't). I got this TV last summer. I went into Best Buy originally looking for an entertainment center. Noticed this TV (I got the 50 inch version of this exact model) on the wall and it was on sale because it was the display model Best Buy had been using with all the other TVs. The price? $589!!! SOLD. Took it home and it has been working great ever since. The picture is excellent.
Summary: I bought my new Plasma TV about two months ago. To say I am pleased would be a gross understatement. It is far more in every way than what I could have expected. The quality of the picture is better than any thing I have seen before. The skin tones are real, the picture is great even at edges of the screen. Its so clear in HD that the nature shows provide every thing but the smell of the great out doors.
Summary: I have had this unit for about three weeks now, and wanted to wait this long to give it fair review. This is Panasonic's entry level Plasma Smart TV. As such, it lacks a few things. I would recommend to myself in the future, and to others: If a great TV is very important to you, you will have to pay the price. The extra $300 or so would be worth it to make you very happy down the road. But....
Summary: Great TV. Right out of the box a very impressive picture quality.I was very interested in the 3D picture since my instore (@BB) trial of 3D left me dizzy and feeling sick. I couldn't find any faults with the 3D experience.My seating position is 13 feet 5inches from the screen which is to far to fully get the full3D effect,at around 7 feet where it was the most enjoyable.
Summary: So I had this TV for about a week before finding a Panasonic VT50 (55") on sale for $1600 and decided to return this one and buy the VT. PQ - I loved it. The colors were spot on. Viewing angle great. I had a 50" ST30 (2011) and this years models definitely have more pop and get brighter. One of the bigger changes year on year I've seen from Panasonic. However, the UT50 (60") was plagued with the same issue, though not as bad, as my ST30. Buzzing!
Summary: I purchased the 60" version of this TV a couple months ago and have to say it still has that same "wow" factor that it did when i first took it out of the box. This is a sleek, tasteful looking TV, with awesome features and beautiful picture quality, especially considering its more than reasonable price.
