My husband did some serious shopping around when it came time for us to purchase a new television. He compared LED vs. Plasma, as we already had an LED television. Wow, is there a huge difference between this Plasma television and our old LED television. I didn't notice it right away, but now that we have watched this television for a month, I don't even want to go near our old LED television! The picture is brighter, more crisper, and you cannot see the pixels (like you can with an LED television). I would highly recommend this television to anyone who is considering it. If you have the opportunity to do so, check this out in a store, and compare it to the LED televisions are currently being made. You won't believe the difference in picture quality, color brightness/saturation, and lack of pixels! Keep in mind that you will want to avoid any kind of screen images (images or bars along the edges of the screen) that may burn into the screen over an extended period of time, so don't keep any show paused for more than a few minutes. Also, avoid keeping the same channel on for longer than an hour or 2, due to the screen images that seem to be present on every channel these days.
Well packaged. Easy to unbox & assemble stand. Just as all independent reviews noted, the picture quality is absolutely unbelievable. Very crisp picture with brilliant colors.

Perfect HD TV - Better than any other LED TV, Better than any LCD TV.. This is the TV to get! period... Super clear, and its a smart Tv as well, - I recommend you also buy a wireless bluetooth keyboard as well! a logitech works great...
So far I like this TV, but the one thing I noticed is if you are trying to access the Internet on the TV, and a program requires Adobe Flash player it will not work. Adobe no longer supports players for these or other TV. This does cause a issue. Smart TV's?? The picture is Great, it is easy to look around in the menus
My experience with this TV has been totally ruined by Panasonic's decision to include built in advertising on the Home screen. After finding the ad setting (which was buried deep in the tv's settings) and turning it off i thought i was safe from intrusive ads. But even with Viera ads turned off, when on the home screen advertisements for Tyson chicken pop up. I understand ads during tv shows, these pay for the content you are watching. But I didn't pay $1000 for someone to serve me ad content unrelated to the program i am watching. Talked to customer service and was told there is no way to remove this feature. I will NEVER buy another Panasonic product again. I paid for a tv, not a targeted ad box. Vote with your wallets folks, its the only thing these people understand.

CNET review gave this TV (2013 Models) their highest rating (5 Stars) and rightly so. I got mine from Sears about 10 days ago and I'm still astounded by the picture quality. Even the sound quality surprised me. It is not as tinny as some of the other brands out there. However, you will still want to hook up to a home theater receiver in order to appreciate the full range of sound. There is an optical output on the tv to accomplish this easily. There is a plethora of picture adjustments to satisfy any videophile. Hook up to my wireless router took only seconds to accomplish. Netflix access is quick and the picture quality for HD movies rivals blu ray discs. I've noticed that some of the HD movies on Netflix are listed as "Super HD". The same movie accessed on my other HD tv is listed only as HD. The Netflix picture quality on the new Panasonic is noticeably better. Panasonic has announce that it will cease manufactuiring plasma tv's this year. I only hope that they will change their minds. If you are looking to buy a plasma in the near future you may want to do so now before these are gone.

"I am pleasantly surprised with this TV. Our 50? DLP TV bulb went so it was time to shop for a new TV. Did not have time to do the guy thing and surf and compare for days... After visiting the typical 3 main stores I was overwhelmed.... For some reason the sales people did not seem to push Plasma so I initially bought a store brand LED TV from a name brand store. I ended up taking it back because light seemed to leak around the corner edges, showing greyish black instead of pure black which I expect on new TV's. Having had problems with my Korean set in the past and knowing how the Japanese are concerning quality I wanted to go with a company that has been in the electronic business a long time. I could not be more impressed with the colors, motion, image clarity and true Black shades. I have had it two weeks: Played with the settings some, Tried the 3d Glasses with the free 3d movie/app, Set it up on the network as a hardwired static IP address so it would work with Viera App Remote
