Summary: Panny used to make quality electronics, but not anymore. Bought the expensive TV on October 2012 and it's broken already. Did a Google search and saw that this is a common problem with many Panny TV. Red light blinking, but no video, no sound. Try to chat with Panny support is like talking to my knee. They reply to a simple question after every 10 minutes with unhelpful answer. Called their support and waited forever with the annoying voice telling to you to wait.
Summary: We purchased two of these models, a 50" and my daughter purchased a 42". We loved everything about it except for one big thing. The 42" lasted one year and my 50" died after two years. It started with a gray strip on the screen and then after a week it just went dark. If you have to have this TV, I'd buy a warranty.
Horrible customer service but Fantastic Picture Quality, Great Value

Summary: There are enough reviews out there on the internet about the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65GT30 65-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV and it's (TC-P65GT50) successor that I don't need to add much. Fantastic picture quality for the money and nothing really seems to come close. It is a Plasma so it has a fantastic viewing angle and great blacks but the screen is a bit reflective and not the brightest so you'll have to live with that. It's also one of the most power hungry TVs out there.
Summary: I love this TV. Great blacks and color. Unfortunately after a few months the TV started turning off and on on it's own. These things happen. For the last couple of months I've been on the phone with Panasonic 10 to 15 times trying to get this fixed. Their customer support keeps giving me the run around, asking me to perform the same trouble shooting steps time after time and will not send someone out. I recommend staying away from Panasonic.
Summary: I have had this TV for only two weeks. All of a sudden, it shuts off and blinks red lights at me. I saw the other guy who posted a 1 star rating and thought, heck that is only one guy. Well, make it two and I bet there are a lot more because I did what he said (after I now have the problem of course) and did a serch for blinking red lights of death and found thousands of posts. I am going to return this. Thank god for Amazon's 30 day return policy.

Summary: The measure of a company is not always their products but how they stand behind them. In this day and age most products are decent, but things can and will happen and you want to know the company you spend your money with will back them up. If you feel that way...You want read my experiences below and think long and hard if you want to send Panasonic or one of their resellers your hard earned money.
Summary: Do not buy this television! Not even two years old, and TV will not turn on. Panasonic unresponsive and unhelpful. Worst $2,000+ mistake I ever made. Thanks panasonic for making expensive junk, you have literally made it so I cannot enjoy a nice TV ever again. I will have to live with cheap TV's so when they break I can just replace them. BUYER BEWARE!
