Summary: This was my first major online purchase, and I was nervous about it. I researched plasmas to the point that it was becoming a joke in my family. It was difficult to find my choices in one store for side-by-side comparisons.
Summary: Set was delivered quickly by Amazon and unpacked, but delivery man could not help lift it up on TV stand (liability problems). After my son helped me lift set to TV - not really all that heavy - the set worked perfectly and the picture with all input sources was beautiful.
Panasonic 800 Series HDTV Review & Configuration Help
Sean C. Stephens "Sean The HD Guy", Amazon
20 December 2010
Summary: My hope is that this review will come across as credible after a brief introduction revealing my technical background. I have been a home theater enthusiast since 1995 and ran a small video and independent film business from 1996 - 2001.
Summary: I was one of the folks who jumped on the "pre-order" sale back in early spring, before Panny was actually shipping product. I had narrowly missed the amazing Panasonic Plasma/Blu-Ray deal a few weeks earlier, so I was determined not to miss out. As soon as I saw the price I jumped.
Summary: Very happy customer. Briefly here are my comments: PROS: A) Good Price on Amazon B) Great quality set C) THX is great quality D) Very usable set. Controls and menus very well laid out E) Remote control is best thought out i ever used F) Sound is very good on this set too G) Image viewer is good.
Summary: Ok, I did the usual research to death routine, then the CNET review sealed the deal. This was too easy. Get online, order from Amazon, set gets delivered 2 days early way out in the boonies of western Colorado at a price about $600 less than the local Best Buy and Circuit City.
Summary: If I had rated this TV a few days ago, it would have gotten five stars. However, it just died the other night while my wife and I were watching TV on it. It made a 'pop', and the picture went away. I tried disconnecting the power, and turning it back on.
Summary: We got the TV in January. I just now tore myself away from it long enough to review it. We bought a Disney (blu-ray) movie with a travelogue feature of the grand canyon included - loking at the feature, on the TV was like looking through a window. - even standing way too close to the screen.
