Summary: I've had the TV for a few months. When I first got the TV I recall thinking the picture was excellent. The previous reviews I read were that the screen starts to fade after a year. That may be true but unless I had a new TV to compare with it's hard to notice. I don't use the 3-D feature.
Summary: Bought this tv in middle October 2011 and love it except for a little judder(will clarify later). First out, the picture is outstanding never had a better tv. Before this I owned a Samsung LN46A750 but unfortunately the screen broke and was forced to make a purchase.
Summary: First of all, excuse the dramatic title and low rating. The picture quality of this TV was awesome when I first viewed it and I would have happily given it five stars. The purpose of posting this review is to draw attention to a very poor design issue with this product and hopefully to prevent this...
Summary: I've wanted a dark black that is not grayish looking which was my first priority. After viewing Pioneer KURO 60" TV that cost $7000 when it came out, I was speechless. Panasonic cannot match that kind of black level but it is significantly better than other LED, LCD, or plasma I've seen so far.
Summary: I purchased this set through Electronics Expo. There were several reasons I chose this TV. I needed a huge TV, and the height of this was comparable to the height of my old 50 inch standard-def TV.
Summary: I would have given this TV 5 stars because the picture and features are awesome. But the sound system is quite "tinny" sounding and I am going to have to find an external sound solution to truly enjoy the experience. I will probably purchase a sound bar and subwoofer.
Great set! (except one fixable issue that, if spotted will drive you nuts)

Summary: UPDATE: 10/5/2011 (Fixed, happy!) My original review, below, focused primarily on my frustration with an annoyance that EVERY SINGLE 2011 Viera 3D Panasonic plasma exhibited. Since mid August 2011 Panasonic has built the "fix" into all models that exhibited this problem.
