Summary: I bought this TV in Sept 2009 from Amazon and it's still going strong. While the TV is a little on the heavy side and the remote is quite average, the picture quality on this sucker is fantastic. I cannot tell the difference between its 720p and my friend's 1080 viera. I'm a little scared buying Japanese electronics products these days given my recent experience with Toshiba's unbelievably atrocious customer service and horrible quality. However.
Summary: Got this TV over 3 years ago and its still going good. I have the sound hooked up to a surround sound speaker system and never use the actual TV speakers so I don't have any personal input there.
Summary: This is simply an amazing TV. Perfect size, not too big or too small and the picture is crystal clear. HD programs are stunning. The internal menu system is easy and the pedestal base is solid. Not sure what else I can say about it, I have no complaints at all. Bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife in December of 2009, and we are still loving it to this day. Excellent value.
Summary: great color, picture and sound. still works just as good today as the day we bought it. can be hooked up to a computer to watch things on the internet which was a great thing for us. nice size, stand works great, and it isn't that heavy. i've had no problems with this tv, and it even had water spilled on it. cleaned up nicely and didn't seem to be harmed at all.
Summary: I bought this TV at the end of 2009 when our old 56 inch 1080P JVC HD-ILA set died, a TV that we had purchased for nearly $2,500 dollars in early 2007 or 2008 if memory serves me. The JVC set had been a nightmare honestly, had a jaw dropping picture but burned through the fairly expensive bulbs far too quickly (we had gone through 3 in 18-20 months and 2 in 3 months) when I just couldn't take any more.
Summary: Fast service and shipping. I really like the TV,nice picture though as others say sound is no great shakes but certainly good enough. Paid 849.00 with tax and shipping on Aug 2009. Im sold on Plasma,had over 2 years. Will get plasma in future when I get new TV unless LCD is vastly improved.Only possible gripe is power consumption,averages 217 watts.Dont care,its a nice TV.
This TV Rocks...ignore the negative you hear about Plasma

Summary: Great Tv...tell everyone in my family it is a 1080 and not 720 and i even get comments like..."yeah, i can tell! Very Clear Picture" Plus plasma is just a darker, crisper image....Have owned this since Nov. 2009 and i am very Happy with this TV. One Note....when u purchase an HD TV....take advantage and pay your cable company for that service...these sets are designed for an HD signal....regular signal just doesnt look right!
Summary: We bought this TV at Christmas time and have been very happy with it. The picture and sound are great. It was easy to hook-up. The controls are easy to use. The only problem, and I knew this when we went with plasma, is there is a glare with bright light. The price we paid was very good compared to other places selling this product.
Summary: Have only had it for three weeks, but I have no complaints. Since we only have standard def satellite at the moment, this tv really shows its potential when playing the PS3. Lights and darks are excellent. Speakers are more than adequate for our living room. A large room may benefit from a surround sound system.
