Summary: I have the 42" version of this TV and have had it for about 3 years now. I still have people with much newer LCD and plasma TVs come to my house and tell me how impressed they are with the picture quality. I'm not a big electronics buff, but when I do notice new TVs in stores (with $1500+ price tags), most of them don't look as good as mine, and the few that do are playing Blu-Rays, which I haven't upgraded to yet.
Summary: I wanted to leave a positive feedback, but I am so glad I didn't. I was reading things like "Don't buy this tv!", it has board failure". My panasonic did and I was reading that a lot of the tvs have failure. I was told to take it to Bastrop 60 miles from my home. They said I couldn't bring it in and I was to far for them to drive to. So I took it 100 miles into Houston to Arcola, but they weren't a certified panasonic repair shop, however their employees were.
Summary: It got here on time, works great, and I love it. The only thing that really surprises me is how well the sound works. I have a system, but I almost never use it because the built in speakers are sooooo much better than the other panasonic I have.
Summary: [...] I originally bought the TH-50PZ80U 50-Inch model but 3 days after I got it mounted on my wall I heard a loud pop sound, the picture went black and the red light started flashing a code on the front. Plasma TVs consume a huge amount of power - I think the 50 inch was running around 750 Watts. I did some research and discovered that the power supplies and internal power switching are extremely sensitive to power fluxuations.
Summary: Wow,i recently purchased this panasonic plasma and all i can say is perfect.I actually have 3 other HD TVs i have a PHILLIPS 47" LCD A 52" samsung 720p(my daughter has that one good deal black friday) and a SONY 50"SXRD DLP 4 yrs now.This is my first plasma and by far is my favorite,i did alot of research on alot of tvs.
Summary: In my personal opinion, plasma beats best LCD models like Sony and Samsung. So, if you are still shopping, simply go to the store, and devote some time to comparing TVs and chose the one YOU like. Like many other consumers, I was hesitating choosing between plasma and LCD TVs. Initially, I was inclined to LCD (Sony 120HZ), but after spending quite a time in one of the electronic giant stores comparing different brands, I chose Panasonic plasma (I liked Pioneer KURO even...
Summary: This is my first flat screen TV, and it doesn't disappoint. It's big enough for easy viewing anywhere in my living room, it fits just right between the fireplace and an adjacent wall and it doesn't dominate the room like an 800 pound gorilla. I love the picture size and clarity, although that varies a lot with cable programming. I've ordered a Blu-Ray DVD player that I hope will offer me a true 1080P high def image.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture, Simple Controls
Summary: New TVs are great The best thing about a flat panel TV is you can get it off the floor and hang it on the wall or suspend it from the ceiling giving more room. We went from a rear projector 60" to a 46" plasma. No more glare on the screen, no more blur from standing too close either. The quality of the picture is great to, seeing quite a lot of detail than before is the best.
Summary: I was worried about motion blur on an LCD but equally concerned about glare and dimmer picture on the plasma. When I saw this tv at I friend's I was sold. Now that I have it, I will swear by it. Glare has not been an issue and the picture is plenty bright enough. The picture is great and, with a little adjustment, the colors are right on. LCDs seem a little cold to me and the colors here are very warm.
