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.
Excerpt: I picked up this TV at Sears.com during a new years holiday sale about a year and a quarter ago now. I did my research, and since I was set on buying a plasma (due to their unsurpassed build quality, price, and appearance), I decided to go with Panasonic as they're the most experienced plasma builders in the business. Although this TV is only 720p, its 600Hz subfield drive produces a spectacular refresh rate, leaving absolutely no screen ghosting behind.
Excerpt: When it comes to televisions, I won't skimp on quality. And maybe its too much to say that I love this TV. But I already said it, so I can't take it back. Everything works flawlessly on this TV and in over a year of use I have never had a problem. The picture, even after plenty of use, still looks great, especially if you are watching sports. It looks a lot better than my old Sony LED, which was a 1080p.
Excerpt: We got our new Panasonic Plasma 50" HDTV this past January, after considering many different ones. We settled on this one and it has proven to be an excellent choice! It was extremely easy to set up straight out of the box, all we had to do was set the TV on the base/feet. Note, this is def a two person job- this is a big TV! The picture is SO beautiful -clear and bright. Vivid colors, it makes you think you are actually there in the scene.
Now that I have this I never have to leave the house!

Excerpt: I love this TV! I have had my HDTV for a year now and I love it. The picture is great especially on the HD channels. On those channels you feel like you are actually there. There is nothing like watchind your favorite sporting event in HD on a big screen like this. It also has a lot of features that make it easy to integrate with other devices. It has multiple hdmi inputs, and plenty of aux inputs so that you can use multiple deices with it as well.
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.
