I love this TV
By Missin' Chi-town...but not the cold!

About Me Enthusiast
Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" Plasma Flat Panel Black HDTV:
I simply love this TV. The colors are wonderful...although one can argue if its worth to spend the extra money for the THX certification. The TV is heavy though, but this includes a single pane of glass and metal casing. I have heard a lot of brouhaha over the flickering 24p. To be honest, I really don't miss this set up and it should not be the reason why you would not buy this tv. Overall, set up is easy, and I recommend going bigger on screen size if you're in doubt.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This TV lives up to the review hype

About Me Casual User
The unit was highly rated by both CNet and Consumer Reports and it performs as advertised.My only critique : The unit was used with a digital cable box and a separate sound system. It took a bit of research thru the menus to determine how to get the sound working.
Great TV Awesome Experience
I did a lot of research and was excited to see that Abt carried the specific product that I was looking for. In person I set the Panasonic 800z next to other Panasonics and the highly rated Samsung LCD. While the plasma picture is a bit darker side by side, the picture when watching sports (fast movement) was slightly noticeable. And how could I live with something I knew was inferior. Super happy with this product and glad I paid up by a couple hundred bucks to get a better picture.
Service and delivery comments:
Honestly, I will never buy from another store again. Abt matched the local price that I received, they gave free shipping, and they were on time. The local delivery agent was awesome, on-time, polite, and helpful. I used to live in Chicago and was happy to know I could still shop at Abt despite moving to Texas.
Excellent Picture Quality
My configuation used a separate audio system, using RCA connectors.MDMI was used for input from cable box.It took a while to determine the the audio source had to be configured via the menu settings.
I would buy this again

Friendly and Fast

The TV is great. I did a lot of online research before making my decision since this is something I will have for several years to come. I've never had a Hi Def or flat screen TV, but this one seems to live up to it's reviews
Just wanted to comment on ABT's service. I tried to order this TV from two other well rated sites and had problems. Both of the other sites said they had the TV in stock and would ship it in a few days. Turned out that neither of the sites had the TV in stock at all and after a week or more of calls to the companies I just had to cancel the orders. I was very frustrated by the time I called ABT and ready to have to wait another week or more. To my surprise, they said they would ship out the TV the next day and throw in a top of the line Blu-Ray DVD player for free. The TV and Blu-Ray showed up a few days later as promised and they have an enthusiastic new customer.
I would buy this product again
from Orchard Park, NY
Excellent TV. Setup was very easy. I use it with FIOS TV service from Verizon - and have plenty of HD options available. All quite enjoyable on this set.
Great TV - Great Place to buy from.
from St. Paul, MN
Awesome picture, great sound, easy set-up.
Loved doing business with Abt. Their service sales staff took any worry about internet sales out of the equation answering many of my questions using their "Live Chat." Everything that was promised would happen - did. Ordered on Friday, delivered to house on Wed. Thank you Megan M. at Abt!

This is my first plasma and I am very impressed with the colors and very deep blacks compared to my LCD. The set is great all the way around.
