Summary: I replaced a Sony XBR5 (I think it was a 5) with the Panasonic. The Panasonic seems to me to provide a somewhat better picture (the Sony was already had a terrific picture). The Panasonic seems to have truer colors and it seems to handle motion better. On the down side, there is more reflection.
Summary: I've been very happy with this 50 inch Panasonic. The THX setting provides a practically perfect picture and is excellent except when there is a ton of daylight in the room. I think the sound quality is pretty terrific also. Great for movies and sports.
Summary: My new TV has been received and it was in perfect condition. It has been installed on the wall and we are enjoying it very much. We had surround sound added at the time of installation and it has definitely made this purchase extra special.
Summary: I've had this for 2 months now with no problems. Buy it from Warehouse deals, if you can, and save some money. With shipping ours totaled $1690 and they had a local crew deliver and set it up for me.
Summary: This television makes good on all of the promises and praises I've read all over the internet as well as from employees of Panasonic. I've worked in retail electronics for 9 years now and this is hands down the best TV I have ever seen.
Hands down the best plasma performance and price wise

Summary: The battle wages on between LCD and Plasma, but I know I chose correctly when I picked up this television brand (i own the th-50pz80u, this is a slightly newer model with a bit more contrast). I have had it now for over a month and I still am as mezmerized as I was on day one.
Summary: This is my first review submission and I couldn't be more happy with the set. Great picture all around. The THX mode really dazzles when watching DVD's or an HD telecast. The sound is real good as well though you can't go too killer with the volume or the bass will cause vibrations.
