After finally deciding to purchase my first HDTV, I did plenty of research on what I wanted. I was just about set on an LCD when I saw this model in the store. The picture just blew me away and I was amazed at the depth of the colors. At any angle, this TV gave a superior and vibrant picture. I also watch a lot of sports and you can definitely see the difference in watching events on this TV. I couldn't be happier with my first HDTV!

        We purchased this TV in August 2009. Set up was easy. The picture is great. As for plasma versus LCD. My grandson has started working and of course touches everything. We have no problems removing his finger prints. screen is easy to clean and maintain. The only con I have is that the volume is not consistent. I find myself adjusting the volume during commercials

          We've had our set for 4 months now with no problems. Still amazed with the picture quality, especially with distant outdoor scenes. Football looks better then ever and I am looking forward to watching my World Champion N.Y. Yankees defend their title. Can't go wrong with this TV.

                  We purchased this unit on Christmas Eve; but, waited until Christmas Day to open. What a present!! The picture is clear and crisp; and WOW, how awesome when viewing sports (even in standard Def). DVD's in standard Def are incredible. Even my Wii looks good on it (Just be sure to use the "game mode" setting to help avoid ghost/burn in images; some recommend not using game console for first 100-150 hrs.). Panasonic, you have done it again!! Congrats on a great product!!

                        Just purchased last week, and love it! We don't use any games, so it's perfect for regular viewing, and the HD is great. I was reluctant to go plasma because of newer technologies, but it's awesome. Felt good gettting a Panasonic at a great price. Highly recommend it!

                          This is a good tv. If you don't need 1080p (which will do you no good when watching regular tv anyway) this is a good option. The motion is crisp. I especially like watching football on this TV.

                              We were looking for a 1080p LCD at our local warehouse club. We saw this set sitting next to a 1080p LCD. Being fed by the same Blu-ray player, the picture quality was far superior to the eye for about half the price. We have had no problems and continue to be amazed at the picture for the price. In this size of set 720p versus 1080p is almost indestinguishable. We were afraid that the glare issue would be a problem, but we have not had an issue. We are now looking at getting another one of these or potentially the 50" model. The picture is especially good for sports.
