Summary: I bought this TV last year and it has worked beautifully. The colors are just fantastic and the clarity is spot on. One of the best TVs I have seen. The blacks are really dark and the whites contrast quite well. I have had no problems with the TV at all.
Summary: The purchase process through Amazon was smooth. Great Price and shipping was acceptable. The plasma picture is great. I loved it while it worked. Unfortunately, the TV quit working after 23 months of use. It has the 7 red blinking lights issue. Not very reliable. A web search has revealed this to be a common problem. I've opened a case with Panasonic. Resolution pending.
Summary: I've been unsatisfied thus far with getting the pair of USB ports on this unit to work properly. Two tries by a local dealer have failed to resolve the situation, and Panasonic's own recommendation that a Netgear Dual-band N Wireless dongle has yet to work as the television won't allow its setup and connection to a Netgear router just a few feet away. Supposedly, these USB ports and the onboard "Viera" media player will also play only MP-1 video formats..
Summary: Best picture I have ever seen on bluray its incredable very easy to set up and the price was killer I have a pioneer and its hard to beat the picture but I can do it hands down but then its 3 years newer so things move at a very fast pace in the vedio world
Summary: This review summarizes the key points from my TV purchasing/installing experience: 1. CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON OBTAINING THE FREE SHIPPING VIA CARRIER - DO NOT CHOOSE THE SUPER SAVER SHIPPING OPTION! I had to cancel my first order and reorder it to get the free carrier service scheduling window to pop up. 2. It is most likely that Saturday and evening deliveries WILL NOT be available in your area - it was not in mine.
Summary: This replaced my 2008 model of the same size. It simply looks amazing. There is no comparison between the older model and this one. Blacks are black, period! I'm using it in THX mode with the default settings and watch mostly Blu-rays and OTA TV in a darkened room with a small backlight behind the set and the picture is simply gorgeous.
Summary: I bought mine from the Amazon Warehouse Deals. It came with cosmetic imperfections as described, but I didn't care because the picture is perfect and I can abide some smudges for $870 all-in. I chose this 2010 model over the equivalent 2011 model because I didn't want 3D and the 2011 equivalent does not have THX mode (bad mistake, Panasonic). I tested THX mode with bluray "Tron" in 5.1 and it was insanity. I-N-S-A-N-I-T-Y.
Summary: Easy to follow instructions to set up. Picture quality is every bit as good as I expected from the reviews and remarks I had read before purchase. I am not a technical person and can not go into specifics. I am very pleased. The white glove delivery was excellent. The product was delivered in the time frame specified and the delivery men (2) set up and tested the TV before they left.
Summary: This TV is awesome. So is Amazon.com. I would highly recomend both to anybody. The TV is huge. The color and sound is great. It is easy to set up and operate. I would buy another one in a heartbeat if I needed another one. Delivery was very fast, and free. Can't say enough good about this purchase. If you are looking for a big plasma, look no more. Order this from Amazon. You won't regret it.
Get it. It's plasma. Better than LCD...better than 3D anything.

Summary: Picture Quality - 5 ** Deep, rich colors. THX mode is superb. With THX mode, no real immediate need for professional calibration. Sound - 3.5 ** Get a home theater 5.1 or 7.1 system. This won't cut it, unless you are in an ambient room with hard floors and not many softening objects such as carpets and tons of furniture. Cosmetics - 4 ** Beautiful rectangular stand that comes standard, as opposed to the oval shaped one for some of their other models.
