Summary: The quality has been great and it saddens me that Panasonic is getting out of the plasma business let alone that plasma as a TV tech appears to be on it's way out... There are a couple issues I have, first, they really should have included at least one pair of 3D glasses preferable 2, I haven't utilized this aspect due to this... The second issue has more to do with the software market place and limits that are in place regarding media playback...
Summary: This is not an advertisement for Abe's. In short, I'd buy from Amazon next time... read below... I finally completed my basement so to pat myself on the back I decided for 'big'. I wanted videophile quality so I decided on the TC-P65VT50 or Viera 65" Plasma 'top of the line'. I chose it because at Best Buys it was side by side with Sony Bravia XL, LG, Samsung and it appeared 'to me' to provide the nicest colors, brightness, and black screen.
Summary: We purchased this TV in November , had it installed, and LOVE it! It is a great TV. The picture is sharp and clear and the size is large but not at all overwhelming. My only beef is with the sneaky way that our order was apparently routed, by Amazon, to some unknown 3rd party seller, causing us to lose the $500 promotional credit that was one of the main reasons we purchased through Amazon in the first place.
Summary: Love the picture. More than bright enough in daylight with no direct light on the screen. The only problem is that we watch a political channel that constantly displays its logo. The logo has burned in. It is only noticed on very light pictures of white or a light sky. The warranty specifically denies burn-in coverage. The tv has a scrolling bar to reduce the burn-in, but it has not helped.
Summary: Pilot freight services delivered my unit May 8th, 3-days sooner than advertised. While I was apprehensive about set-up, an HDMI (not included) and power cord were all that was needed to start watching programs through my receiver. I'm a big guy, so hefting the TV onto its base wasn't such an ordeal, but I will note that most people will need help with this chore.
