Summary: I bought this for movies, because plasma doesn't have the motion problems that LCD has with fast action. So far, it's an awesome display for movies and BluRays. Watching normal TV and even sports is a bit less appealing. It is especially good in dark rooms -- naturally, considering the black level and darker details are phenomenally good on this display. Such detail typically turns to muddy gray blobs on LED and older plasma.
Summary: I read reviews for 2 weeks trying to decide what 60" television to purchase. After reading CNET's review, I was leaning heavily toward the Panasonic VT-60. Friends and family all were against my purchasing a plasma, saying LED is the only way to go, but none of them could tell me why. My research told me differently, but I wanted to view it in person so, I went to Best Buy to take a look.
Summary: The Panasonic TC-P60VT60 stands at the pinnacle of television development today, with only the ZT series just a inch higher. I had already owned an ST model, and after viewing that picture, I bought the VT series. I will not repeat the accolades about the picture quality; just to say, "I agree with the superlatives." I wanted to just review a highlight and a lowlight. The highlight is in a peculiar place: the shipping box.
