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

      This TV has one of the best pictures around. When comparing the picture quality of numerous LCD/Plasmas at the local electronics store, I decided on the Panasonic plasma. The picture is vivid yet warm unlike most LCD's.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery was on the day that the sales person said it would be. The delivery company called two hours in advance so that I could meet them at home. The only problem with the deliery was that there was grease or oil on the bottom of the box. When moving the box across the carpet it left a stain that will have to be professionally cleaned.
