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.
Summary: I bought the 65in version of the panasonic ST-50 that has received all the hype from CNet and every other website I researched and I was not dissappointed! I also bought it through Amazon Wharehouse deals instead of buying a brand new one. I saved 37% and the shipping was free so I only paid 1800 bucks and some change. I sold my LG 55in 3d tv for 800 so it only cost me a thousand to upgrade. Sweeeeet! The only issue I had was with the shipping.
Summary: First off, trust me when i tell you the sound is not great on this set, just look at the consumer report review if you can. All sports on this TV is very blurry with motion, its really sad. Also, when it goes into a dark scene the dark parts get very blurry as well. I might be that I don't have the right Calibration settings. If any one has any please post. I have tried the one for from cNet and it made it a little better.
Terrible delivery service... pilot delivery service is the worst
7 September 2012
Summary: I ordered a Viera tv was very excited about it... my brother has the VT and it's awesome, beautiful tv, pic, and the screen is plenty bright and clean.. BUT my email to schd delivery is when it all started..lol Their server timed out on mr for a Thur delv.. I backed out and then there's no Thur avail now. in a matter of mere seconds.. Pilot is the name btw.. so I selected Fri morning.. disappointed but will live,, right..? so wrong..
Summary: Decent TV except for the fact that the screen started having burn in problems after only 6 weeks. If you're a gamer, or if you watch anything where logos, images, black bars etc. appear on the screen regularly in the same spot, don't get this TV.
Summary: After reading all the reviews I thought this would be a great TV and it was until it stopped working. I would expect something like that out of a cheaper TV. Then to top it off it is going to take over 4 weeks to fix. This will probably be the last Panasonic product I buy.
Summary: First the sound - sounds like a cheap transistor radio inside a glass case, it is so muffled, it is mostly unintelligible. The sound is only tolerable on my stereo The set is less than 4 months old. But I know what my favorite channels are - THEIR LOGOS ARE BURNT INTO THE SCREEN!!! And Panasonic - the major run-around. Don't buy the story that burn in is no longer an issue.
