Van, Amazon
28 November 2014
  • Summary: Read all reviews in 2011, bought this TV as it was rated high. Within 1.3 yrs it failed with red flashing light. What a piece of garbage. Nobody able to fix it as boards are not being repaired anywhere. Terrible support by Panasonic, they offered $70 dollars on a $2100 TV. I will neve buy another Panasonic TV as they DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS. extremely displeased!

  • Summary: Great while it lasted! Completely useless at the 2.5 year mark. I would not buy this product. Nothing that costs this much money should last 2 years. Very disappointed.

  • Summary: Got so called "7 blinks of death" after 2.5 years. Apparently, most TVs fail after 2 years. Terrible product quality from Panasonic.

BE CAREFUL, DO NOT BUY THIS TV!

Marlon, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased two version, one 50" and the other 60": Panasonic TCP50S30 & Panasonic TCP60S30... Both TV's are dead in under 6 months! Check the web, Google "Panasonic TCP50S30 8 blinks", "Panasonic TCP50S30 10 blinks", "Panasonic TCP50S30 14 blinks"... Panasonic customers are looking into starting a class action suit against Panasonic for selling low quality TV's, many users such as myself have replaced a bad board under warranty, and then have had to replace boards(s)...

Died around the 2 year mark

A. Tenley, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: This was a great TV while it lasted. If you check out the other 1 star reviews for this TV, or google the "7 blinking lights Panasonic", you'll see that Panasonic has a quality issue with their VT30 tvs, possibly even their plasmas made in the past several years. Mine died after first starting a loud buzzing sound that would get louder the more white was on the screen.

did not last

Margaret Cox, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: The TV was great for the first 2 years then suddenly quit working. It is called the 7 blinks of death and from what I understand, it is common on this unit. I would hope a tV of this price point would last longer than 2 years!

Buyer Beware

Bruce Leroy, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: At first, I loved this television. I picked it up after my Pioneer Kuro was stolen. You can read my Kuro review to see what I thought about that television. Every review I could find said this was THE television to have going forward. Panasonic was supposed to pick up the flag after Pioneer exited the television business, especially in the plasma market. Well, it is NOT as good as the Kuro, but it's definitely great - or so I thought. I have always been into the picture.

James B Campbell, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: BOUGHT THIS TV ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO. WORKED NICELY THEN DIED. NOTE TV WAS NOT USED HEAVILY, JUST 2 ADULTS IN HOUSE, NO YOUNG CHILDREN, NO GAMING. JUST GOOGLE " SEVEN BLINKING LIGHTS OF DEATH " TO LEARN THIS LINE OF PANASONIC TV'S IS KNOWN FOR THIS. AUTHORIZED PANASONIC REPAIR SERVICE HAS INFORMED ME TV MAY NOT BE WORTH FIXING! I PAID $2,000 FOR THIS TV.

Great TV - for the 2 years it lasted

SEM, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: Like many others who purchased this set based on the tremendous reviews the set worked great for two years then failed (search for "7 blinks of death"). Even though I purchased an extended warranty Panasonic has no idea when the required parts will be available to complete the repairs and has not been helpful. I will think twice before purchasing Panasonic products in the future and will certainly caution others based on my experience.
