The quality has been great and it saddens me that Panasonic is getting out ...

Jonathan D Lewis, Amazon
3 August 2014
  • 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...

Great TV but some 3D shortcomings

Rich B, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I've had this TV for about a month; Panasonic is supposed to release a new model in Spring 2013. I love everything about the set except: there is some obvious ghosting with 3D images, most often when there is sharply defined white next to black. Hopefully they'll correct this with the newer models, but I probably won't spring for one at the price this sells for.

Great Picture but Hot.

Ken T., Amazon
22 January 2013
  • 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.

Great tv not perfect

Jay, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: Great picture, a ton of options, sound quality could be better, touch pad remote is useless. Why the tv does not swivel on its base I will never understand. Overall great tv with a great picture, blacks are unreal how good they are, a little overpriced and missing the swivel but all in all happy with the purchase.

Great picture quality... Pick an early delivery time if you live in a cold weather state..

SG "timequaker", Amazon
11 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this in Mid December and requested a delivery date a couple of weeks later due to vacation issues. I requested a later time delivery but would recommend to others that they consider doing an earlier delivery if possible. The TV was on a truck all day (7 hours) in 30 degree weather so when it was unpacked there was a layer of condensation on the screen and the tv was very cold to touch.

Very nice but watch default screen settings

John B. Day "johnbday", Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Great quality and only 3/4" wider than earlier Panasonic 50" (much narrower bezel), but I was almost ready to return the unit when I first turned on based on what appeared to be a dim picture; adjusting the default setting fixed the issue, but even in a dimly lit basement it initially appeared rather muted out of the box.

Beware of Amazon's "Deal"

PBS "pamela", Amazon
12 December 2012
  • 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.

Burn-in problem

T. Schulman, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • 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.

Sets the new high bar for home television

Brandon, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • 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.
