Summary: Such a great plasma TV from Panasonic and such a shame that they no longer produce these sets. The black levels never cease to amaze with visitors always commenting on the picture quality. Proper wear in and adjustment afterwards are critical which to some can be a painful process. Be careful with screen burn in which continues to be an issue on plasma TV sets. I only wish TV channels would stop with the always present large static logos and info bars.
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.
Summary: This TV has a very elegant design and provides the user with a great viewing experience. I love action sports and this set makes watching so more enjoyable. It is a great center piece of my 7.1 Home Theater setup. My wife loves it and that's a big plus. I have not tried the 3-D nor do I care much for the smart functions; no added value there in my opinion. I purchased it as an HDTV set and so far it has exceeded my expectations.
Summary: I'm a THX Certified Level II Video Calibrator. The VT60 and it's close relative ZT60 are the two best flat panel displays for 2013. I purchased one here at Amazon two months ago for about $2300 which, in my opinion, was an absolute bargain. Now I see the price for remaining retailer stock is $4300. Shame on these gougers. If you can find one for less than $2500, buy it.
