Summary: Needless to say, we are extremely disappointed. I don't make a lot of money and having spent over a year saving up $2000 for this TV and needing two repairs in the last 12 months is not acceptable. Panasonic is not what it used to be, and I will never buy Panasonic again, our next TV will probably be a Samsung or Sony. We purchased this TV in April 2012. After the first 6 months, we noticed a very loud buzzing sound, so we had the TV repaired in October 2012.
Defective Plasma Screen and poor extended service from Panasonic

Summary: I purchased this product after ready product reviews and research other consumer reports...However after 12 months the screen developed a black 2" line from top to bottom on the right side. I had purchase extended extended service agreement from Panasonic and called them for repairs....after two week - someone showed up and examined the picture did a few off-on things and said the TV was not repairable and that someone would be in touch with me about replacing the set.
Summary: Bought one of these tvs. Loved the picture quality and tv itself but just after 2 months a big black strip appeared across the screen. while removing it from the wall screen craked for no apperent reason did not hit it no where these tvs are so delicate.
Summary: When a manufacturer puts out a model of TV it does so with quality parts in the first iteration. I have a 2008 Model 50" Panasonic Plasma TV. It has been beaten, left on for hours upon hours, thrown in my car and traveled with across the country. It was time that I needed another TV for another room in my house so of course I wanted the same TV. I picked it up, same type and model and it was evident the quality was way down. It was the second generation.
Summary: Worst TV & Support Experience EVER!!!!!!! TV has Fluctuating Brightness... Called Panasonic twice, both times the Rep transferred me to an unattended automated queue. I'm returning this garbage.
Summary: I just turned away the shippers on this tv. They plugged it in and all it did was make a whole lot of loud buzzing but no picture when we tried to turn it on. We tried everything, but there was not even a hint it would turn on. My last plasma tv that did this had a burnt out CPU, mind you it was 8 years old at the time. I got rid of it because it was an $800 fix. I saw good reviews on this Panasonic and felt it was a good brand. This tv, however was beyond fixing.
Summary: I usually stick with Sony or samsung for my electronics never had a problem with either companies. Saw the a good deal on this so bought it got it home it wouldnt turn on. Got a second one for return same problem. Having the same problem like that shows poor manufacturing QA and makes me wonder about their other products.
Damaged in Shipping - Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST30 60-Inch 1080p 600 Hz 3D Plasma HDTV
27 January 2012
Summary: Purchased a Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST30 60-Inch 1080p 600 Hz 3D Plasma HDTV .... First time ever using Amazon to make a purchase ... was to be a Christmas present. My wife received the box from ABF Freight and he had her sign and stated he did not set it up or open. Based on the appearance of the box, everything looked okay. There was not a tilt/tip indicator on the box.
Summary: We recently Exchanged one 60" Pan ST30 for a second unit - replacement arrived Jan 24, 2012. The first was returned for Green Blobs (which diminished over time, but did not disappear) and a Pink Tint - which started at the very edges of the screen, but spread considerably as the panel was used.
