    Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" Plasma Flat Panel 1080p HDTV In Black:

    Real Nice Tele actually. I am running FiOS and it is a sweet experience.....finally getting HD in digital. The manual is not thick like the Bible and is realatively well written. You can not customize input names. For example, I had to settle for "Cable" instead of being able to type in FiOS! I paid [$] for it. I was on the fence with LCD or Plasma but if you watch sports and movies it is for you. Trail lines are an issue with LCD's esp. while watching sports.

        Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" Plasma Flat Panel 1080p HDTV In Black:

        The only con is we are having trouble mounting the television on the stand that we purchased at Sam's. You have buy a Panasonic mounting kit and then mount it to the stand.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was quick since it was being delivered to OH. One thing that I would like to mention is that the first television screen was cracked and we had not taken it out of the box when the shipper had delivered it. I found it refreshing for ABT to take the tv back and send us out a new one within a couple of days without any hassel. GREAT JOB!!!!

          Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" Plasma Flat Panel 1080p HDTV In Black:

          I had reviewed many TV's before buying this one, but I made a good choice picking a Panasonic Plasma. The picture is great, the black levels are great, blu-ray movies look great, playing PS3 in 1080p is awesome, everything looks great on this TV except of course regular cable, don't have HD channels yet. The menus are pretty easy to navigate. I have all my different picture modes set to other people's recommended configurations and they all look great.
