Summary: i purchased a high end tv from panasonic 11 months ago. About a month ago I noticed gray lines stretching across the panel. I called tech support who had me run a series of diagnostic tests. They also asked me to send them a bunch of pictures and my receipt for the tv.
Summary: Too bad Panasonic stopped producing Plasma TV's....Although a bit pricey, no one left can match their over all history of quality.....The unit I purchased is a stunning example and enjoy it everyday.
Summary: CNET reviewed this TV as a top pick. They are correct. This TV is amazing. Note that plasma TVs are not ideal for bright rooms. Furthermore, Panasonic has discontinued making plasma TVs. That said, I love the picture and highly recommend the TV.
Beautiful picture quality. Good sound. Plenty of features.

Summary: We've always preferred plasma TVs. The deep black creates vibrant colors for excellent picture quality. When it was time to replace our TV, looked up reviews on CNET only to discover plasmas were being phased out. Couldn't find this one locally and had to order online.
Summary: Overall I'm very happy with the ZT60. However, I have noticed skin tones can be a little too 'green' for my taste. I also would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you BREAK IN this tv before using it on a regular basis. I have about 100 hours on my tv so far and I have A LOT of burn in.
Summary: The only negative part of this purchase was that the tv was damaged in the transit. I had to returned to the tv because the glass was cracked in two places. Everything else about the purchase was positive and met my exppectations.
Summary: I have a 8-year old 50" Pioneer plasma (5060HD), which has an exceptional picture despite its 720p resolution. When I read that Panasonic was getting ouf of the plasma business, I decided to purchase the 60" ZT60 after reading all of the rave reviews in well respected magazines and websites.
Summary: excellent picture. easy to set up. love it. very light and thin. almost dropped it while mounting it (had nothing to do with the tv or tv design) too bad panasonic won't make any more plasmas.
