Summary: I purchased this TV from Amazon a little over a year ago based on the review and recommendations on CNET. I have to admit that, even after a full year of use, I am blown away by the picture quality each and every time I turn it on. It nothing short of amazing. Careful calibration is a must but once done, this is good as it gets! Unlike some reviewers, my delivery experience couldn't have gone smoother.
Summary: This tv is the best! The picture is so crisp and clean. The viera functions can take you anywhere you want to go. We researched tv's for a couple of months before choosing this one. It truly was the best available and the price was great. Highly, highly recommended!
Summary: First TV we have purchased in some time. Amazon was great. They matched the best price (of their listed competitors), delivered it for free, and at the time were charging no tax. The set is nice, but it froze and basically stop working in a very short time. Amazon took care of us without a hitch, swapping the defective unit with a new one very quickly. That's why we try to use Amazon, and they really came through.
Summary: Best picture I have ever seen on a home TV. I opted for plasma because I think the picture is better. The web interface is pretty good but not as good as my Roku interface and it is a little slower. Does not generate much heat, which I was very worried about. I've check it with a heat gun, it's more than my newer LCD's but less than my older ones and much less than my AV receiver. I don't use the TV's built-in speakers so I can't comment on them.
Summary: Very pleased with this purchase. Easy setup. Delivery went great. We mounted it on the wall and absolutely LOVE the picture. This is my second Panasonic Plasma and I doubt I will ever go with anything different. When watching baseball on HD makes us feel like we are at the baseball park. My young adult children were quite impressed.
Summary: This television is very highly rated by CNET et.al. and lives up the rating. The picture is fantastic but it does take some getting used to when switching from my Samsung LED. It is a more subdued picture but shows great detail and uniformity. The colors are outstanding albeit more muted than on the Samsung. I used the settings I found on highdefjunkies.com. I also followed the break-in processes they advised on that website.
Garbage product - Amazon isn't the place to buy a TV
1 May 2013
Summary: 45 days in my TV developed a black bar down the RH side. Didn't shift the image, jut a black bar dropped from the frame cutting off the image. Called Amazon and they could do nothing for me since the 30 day window had passed. So understand - if you buy a TV here YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN TO DEAL WITH THE MANUFACTURER. You could buy an aftermarket warranty, but unlike certain bricks and mortars it's you and the warranty company...after 30 days Amazon is done with the sale.
Summary: When this TV works, it is amazing. Problem is, I have had two sets last less than 90 days. The first one it took my service center 8 weeks to get the replacement panel (part) which wasn't all Panny's fault. The rep stepped in and fixed it by replacing the set. The issue was a black bar on the right side. Well, just inside three months in my second TV has the same issue on the other side.
