Excellent picture, dreaded black bar after 14 months

Summary: Loved the tv, unfortunately reliability seems to be a big issue with these. After 14 months of light use, I have the 3" black bar down the right side. Bummer. This is the first flat screen I've ever had a problem with. I have an 8 year old Panasonic that is still doing fine.
Summary: I've had this HDTV for roughly 56 weeks now. So a little over a year. Just enough time for Panasonic to not honor the warranty. I, like many other 1 star reviews on here, have the same problem. Burn in. I read extensively on the best rated TV's out there and heard that plasma was the way to go.
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.
Summary: This set worked great for four months. Then it stopped working 3 or 4 weeks ago with a "seven blink" code. It still does not work. First the repairman came and took the set down (with our help - they only send one guy and the TV "must be off the wall") and looked at the insides, then he put it up.
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.
Stopped Working .... Beware of Panasonic 'Concierge' Warranty
Honest Abe, Amazon
17 June 2012
Summary: This TV is stopped working after barely 5 months of light use. Panasonic does NOT honor its warranty as stated in its pamphlet and will not provide a loaner 'unless one is available' (This means no!). Also, the company they contract out to service the television is not professional at all.
