"2 broken sets in 14 months, no support from Panasonic"
31 March 2012
Pros: While it was working, we enjoyed an amazing picture and size.
Cons: Panasonic product support is there to sell you a new TV once your set breaks, not help you fix it. We went through 2 sets in 14 months and are now shopping for a new TV because Panasonic does not offer the part needed for repair of our 2nd set.
Summary: I'll keep this short: PROS 1) Great vivid picture. Fast refresh for basketball, etc. 2) Very wide viewing angles. 3) 3D works remarkably well, although is (obviously) dependendent on great 3D rendering by producers. 4) Extra connections to YouTube, Netflix, etc. are handy. Home network hookup was simple. 5) We use external sound, so cannot comment on the sound. CONS 1) Gives off lots of heat.
Cons: I cannot connect the system to the internet. I am receiving an "unable to find the Viera Server". I have tried connecting the Panasonic DY-WL10 Wireless LAN Adapter directly through the TV and to Pasaonic DMP BDT100 Blue Ray Disc. Both method failed.
Pros: Great picture still. Pros: + Black levels are incredible + Deep, rich, beautiful colors + Fantastic picture quality + No anoying buzzing
Cons: Now, 6 months later: an annoying buzzing The Unit has now started to emit a annoying buzzing sound that is driven by different content displayed at various times. Appears to be triggered by the signal, when no content is displayed there is no signal.
Summary: I bought this TV just in time for the Superbowl. I searched out this TV, because of the ratings I found in multiple locations including Consumer Reports. Positives.) ..This TV has an absolutely stunning picture, and the cleanest blacks I've ever seen. ..The 3D is the best out there, supporting several formats, and adding real WOW to any 3D programming. ..The Viera cast internet apps are a nice touch, with Skype, Utube, Pandora,weather, Bloomberg, etc, etc... .
Summary: Since buying this TV, we only go to the movie theater when it's in IMAX. The 3d quality as well the 2d quality is better than most movie theaters... It pays for it's self when you consider how much it costs for a family to go to the movies... popcorn, candy, soda.. tickets... plus you don't have to worry about missing parts of the film due too crying babies, cell phones, going to the bathroom, or people talking. And for those with a PS3, it also plays 3d!
Summary: I think I just bought the last Panasonic TCP65VT25 TV in North America. I was one of very first adopters to the Plasma technology and Flat screen TVs nearly 10+ years ago. I had owned my panasonic 50" HD Plasma for 8 years before upgrading to the 3D. Panasonic/Pioneer is by far the best Mfg. of plasma TV. Had the new one installed yesterday. Wathed the SuperBowl on it. The results were amazing. The TV is great. The 3D is amazing.
