Summary: I bought this as a 'used' product through amazon warehouse. The description of the problems wasn't 100% correct, the problems were fairly insignificant though so that isn't really an issue for me. It basically looks like a new TV unless you take a close look at the stand and a small area on the back of the TV. I've had the TV for over a month now and have been absolutely pleased with its picture quality.
Summary: Was fortunate to get this during a great sale on Amazon. The TV has an absolutely stunning picture and looks great on the wall of my loft. I have it hooked up to DirecTv HD as well as an over the air antennae and couldn't be happier with the picture. One can see why this plasma was so highly rated for picture quality. Out of the box it looked great on whatever I watched; hockey, basketball, football, baseball, as well as DirecTV movie channels and BluRay movies.
All the reviews here already hit the nail on the head

Summary: Pros: Unequaled picture quality that I've seen, especially given the price range. Excellent uniformity, off-angle viewing (although once you get close to 180 degrees you get a 3d-esque blur), and it doesn't seem to run as hot as other plasmas I've owned. Got this at the lowest price ever on Amazon, and they were 5 stars as usual. The delivery guys were another matter, but that's YMMV. Cons: They don't make a bigger one.
Summary: I'm not going to add anything about the superb picture qualities of these now discontinued TVs, all the other reviews cover this very well, what a shame Panasonic are getting out of plasma. However I must comment on the questions above regarding image burn. I've had my P55VT60 and it already suffers from image burn "SKYNEWS HD" to be exact.
Summary: I purchased this TV because I wanted a large TV for our new house (under construction) and I don't like LCD TVs. I wanted a TC-P65ZT60 but I missed out on getting one while they were still available. The picture on this one is almost as good as the ZT. Since Panasonic quit making plasma TVs I had to buy this now. It will be a while before anyone can buy a TV with a picture as good or better than this one at a reasonable price.
