Summary: let me start this off by saying I had originally purchased a Samsung 55d6900 LED television from Best Buy with two pairs of 3D glasses for $2199.. after using that TV for a few weeks I realized it had some shortcomings for the $2200 price.. The glare was horrible and the motion was soo jagged it drove me crazy..
Summary: If you're looking for that great plasma picture quality (deep blacks, true colors), truly smooth motion that no LED can replicate (600hz refresh), and 3D technology (plasmas do 3D better than any other technology available), this is the best bang for your buck, bar none. To get a TV equivalent to this in an LED, you'd spend $2000. At $1100, this is a great deal.

Summary: My previous tv (which I sold off already, regrettably) was a Panasonic th-42pz80u. This was my first step into the wonderful world of plasma tv's & I have nothing but praise for it. I recently decided that I wanted to squeeze the largest tv I could fit into my entertainment armoire & considering how much I loved my old tv I figured it was a safe bet to stick with the Panasonic brand.
Beats every TV out there for the price. Blows away LED/LCD!

Summary: As with most guys buying a new expensive electronic toy I did weeks worth of research on TV's. My previous TV was a 2007 Samsung plasma (720p) and I really loved it for the time that I had it but I was intrigued by the new LED line of TV's. Before doing research I thought that this was the future and that plasmas were going to be phased out but I soon found out this is not the case.
Summary: The Panasonic ST series sits at the perfect price point for those who are looking for a high quality television without breaking the bank. The ST series loses the THX designation and some of the advanced adjustment features of the Panasonic GT and VT series, but it allows you to get a very good television under the 50in. minimum of the higher-end series. My experience with the television over the last few weeks has been positive.
Summary: Like everyone else interested in making the big screen purchase, I spent hours every night reading reviews, shopping around, comparing specs and prices, and trying to decide whether I should go lcd or plasma. Ultimately, I ended up just going to the local BB and seeing which one looked and felt right to me. I purchased this beautiful 55in plasma and I couldn't be happier about it. I've had it for over two weeks now and I don't have a single complaint.
Summary: We've loved this TV since we bought it. It does everything pretty well. We have had the brightness going up/down issue a little bit, but it's no deal-breaker for me. It's so seldom you even notice it. But sure, it's a bug. The biggest problem with this TV is the fact that there's only one audio OUTPUT, digital/SPDIF. For a TV this expensive, there should be every option under the sun. Wifi should also be built-in, but the supplied USB WIFI dingle works fine.
Summary: I purchased this product after reading the product reviews. However after 28 months the screen developed a black 2" line from top to bottom on the right side, just as others said. I have read reviews about getting loose cables fixed and I guess I will have to try this now. I would not recommend a Panasonic after this experience.
