Summary: I've checked out all of the best TV's, Plasma, LED by the biggest brands: Panasonic, Sony XBR, LG & Samsung. I've even check out Panasonic's 2012, VT50! The VT30 is the BEST PICTURE THERE IS!! The Panasonic VT50, was a bit on the dark side, Sony's XBR was a little too bright! The Panasonic VT30 has the perfect blend and BEST of both worlds!!
Summary: I couldn't ask for more! Did a lot o research and this was the final result. After receiving it, running the recommended break in slides for 150 hours I had the set calibrated. I rarely see a TV set with the crispness this one has. All the colors are insanely vibrant. The blacks are just that, as black as you can get. Great for sports, movies, and especially gaming! Borderlands 2 looks amazing on it.
Summary: By far the best TV purchase I've ever did. The picture is by far the best on the market and only thing that could beat it is the VT50! If you are looking for a great MAIN tv with great picture, the VT30 is it. Highly recommended by CNET and other publications.
Summary: Crisp, clean and with Blu ray unbelievable. I personally love the motion smoother. Most movies have strobing and motion blur during action scenes. This feature cleans it up and makes everything more real. Peter Jackson of Lord of the rings fame is now shooting his movies at double the frame rate to get just this effect. Better than going to the movies and the popcorn is cheaper!
Summary: I've had this TV for 2 months now. The picture quality on the VT30 is amazing! The combination of style and picture quality made this a clear stand out when doing months of research. The only TV that could match this is the Sharp Elite and that cost twice as much (not worth it IMO)! The color clarity and depth make you feel like you're watching HD for the first time again, it's that good.
Summary: I had previously purchased the 54in VT25 a little over a year ago. Loved the TV but after about 6-7 months or so, I started noticed the Fluctuating Brightness problem that's been well documented via reviews and online forums. I also noticed that image retention was a bit of a problem. After watching a channel like ESPN, Weather channel, or other news channel with static graphic images for about 30-60 mins, I would continue to see some of those images for a period of time...
Summary: I have owned a few HDTVs over the last 10 years including a rear projection CRT, JVC HD-ILA, Samsun DLP and Sony LCD. This has by far the best picture of any. The blacks are deep, colors are vivid and the contrast is excellent. The setup was a breeze and the Vieracast was pretty straightforward to navigate. I have this as part of a home theater so I really can't comment on the speaker quality and output range.
Summary: Truly amazing out of the box. I bought a TC-P55VT30 about two weeks ago, and I just helped my father set his TC-P65VT30 up two days ago. Amazing clarity, color accuracy (in THX mode) and just overall quality. I do plan to have it professionally calibrated, but for now THX mode seems to work for what we need.
Summary: Let me begin with... I love this TV but it took a while to get it up and running. I am a firm believer in consumer reports and how they rate electronics. In fact they rated this TV as one of the best. I purchased the TCP55VT30 and I could not be happier although there were a few snags. The TV was delivered on time by Amazon's delivery service.
