Summary: First off as a background, I view HD programs on this TV from a FIOS subscription. I also watch blu-ray movies and play games using PS3. It has only been 10 months and the price of this TV (TH-50PX600U) has dropped to more than half.
Summary: This is a good 720p TV for a good price. However, I found the black levels could be a little better. It also gives off a lot of heat. I have a Sumsung 1080P and when hooked up to my Toshiba HD-A20 1080p DVD player produces a better picture than this TV.
Summary: Just got this 50" Panny on Father's Day. It was a terrific Father's Day gift to myself. I was torn between this 1080i plasma and the new 1080p, but the new models cost twice as much and there is no 1080p programming, unless you have a blue ray or HD dvd player.
Summary: The picture and sound are outstanding. The cable card does not work, after three attempts by my cable company and a firmware update sent from the company Panasonic has established a case # for me and will arrange for a repair person to come to my home.
