Summary: I purchased my Panasonic GT30 55 inch TV from Amazon in late Nov. 2011-(Nov. 2011 build date). It was delivered as promised and was set up by delivery team from a company called CEVA. They were very professional and were in and out in no time.
Summary: I can assure you I did extensive, time-consuming research in various forums and review sites before making this purchase to check if burn-in was still an issue for plasmas. Even a well respected podcast proclaimed plasma issues have been virtually eliminated.
Summary: For the price, its a good set. Not perfect. For the same money, I haven't any idea what I'd rather gone for, everything has drawbacks. The set is good but it also has its share of problems. Here's the story. I upgraded from a 54G20 2010 Panasonic plasma for the following reasons: it buzzed alot!
