Summary: 7 blinks of death at only 3 years old and very little viewing (average of 2 hours every night, no daytime viewing, no kids). SC and SU boards need replacing. Known problem. I'm done with Panasonic.

Summary: WARNING!!! WARNING!!! This TV has a major, major defect that everyone should be aware of before they purchase. Panasonic has had major issues with this TV and they don't really stand behind the product when the failure occurs.
Summary: I bought this in April of 2012 and it has been used a ton. I work from home and my wife stays at home, we have 3 kids, this thing is ALWAYS on. I have read a lot of horror stories around the 2 yr mark, so I'm holding my breathe that this tv lasts.
Summary: Great product. The set has been the display for my home theater now for 18 months. Couldn't be happier with quality of picture. No issues at all. This replaced a similar Sony product that was a painful experience.
Summary: Don't even question yourself. This is the TV you want. 65" of big, hairy glory. Picture quality is fantastic, refresh rates for gaming is tops, and the money you save with amazon let your purchase that evil extended warranty without hating yourself for doing so because it it is unneccesary
Summary: Couldn't be happier with a TV. The picture quality is awesome, even for sports, and easy to use. Being WiFi has made all the difference, easy to plug in Apple TV and the SmartTV features could be useful for people who don't want to use an external device.
Great quality picture, POOR service -- broken in 14 months - PANASONIC FAIL

Summary: Panasonic plasma TVs always get highest ratings in reviews for the quality of the picture contrast ratio and so on.... Based on this I have decided to buy TCP55VT30 about 14 months ago. This was my first Panasonic product. I really liked this TV while it was still working.
Awesome - Spend the money you won't be disappointed

Summary: Love it, make sure to spend the $ on the vt model 1 thing after 300 - 400 hours get it professionally calibrated, that will make a major difference & worth every cent, you will think it looks good before but trust me you will be amazed
Summary: Hi all; I've had this TV for about half a year and love it. However, I just had a very alarming experience with it that you should be aware of. I had been playing mostly Call of Duty on my Xbox 360 in my home theater on a projector.
Summary: I've checked out all of the best TV's, Plasma, LED by the biggest brands: Panasonic, Sony XBR, LG & Samsung. I've even check out Panasonic's 2012, VT50! The VT30 is the BEST PICTURE THERE IS!! The Panasonic VT50, was a bit on the dark side, Sony's XBR was a little too bright!
