Pros: Awesome colors, Awesome blacks, awesome picture clarity, realistic skin tones. Feels like you're "there" in the scene.
Cons: Fluctuating Brightness, fluctuating Brightness and fluctuating Brightness. If your TV doesn't have it, enjoy it for the price not better TV. If you have it, it negates EVERYTHING otherwise great about it.
Great TV, 1 problem that undoes it ALL. - *****Update problem solved*****

Summary: Let me start off by saying 4 things first: 1) I LOVE Panasonic products. I have had their phones/shavers/Digital Cameras/and now a Blu-ray player and I love them ALL. 2) I even absolutely love the PQ on this TV as well (barring fluctuating brightness of course). 3) I'm giving it a 1-star rating with a heavy heart but with a firm observant mind. 4) I wish I never had to write this review. The deal breaker??? - Fluctuating brightness!!!
Summary: RESEARCH: After doing research for months, I ended up buying the 65ST30 from Amazon for $2050 last month. I'm a first time Plasma buyer, so researched QUITE a bit into this technology. I was surprised how far Plasmas have come along. I used to think they don't have a long life, or are an outdated technology. I couldn't have been more wrong.
