Summary: One year later this TV is having picture and software issues. Panasonic warranty is garbage and they are not willing to help even though it's a $3500 TV. Panasonic will never receive my money again.
Summary: I've had this TV (TC-P65VT50) for about a year and have tried every setting, but it is just not bright. I have 3 year old LCD that looks way better. I get that the darks are darker, but the whites are gray at best. Stupid to get talked into this TV versus the Samsung 70/80. I'd sell it for $1000 and spend the rest of the money for a good TV.
