One of the best...
from Wayne, PA
About Me Enthusiast
Comments about Panasonic 58" Viera V10 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:
You can 'tweak' settings if you prefer, or you can go with the THX settings and enjoy the great picture (in THX you can adjust color temp, brightness, and contrast to compensate for room lighting.) Can get updates from Panasonic via the Network connection. Definitely one of the best plasma's on the market. Great price [...] Needs a good source - it will show problems with a bad signal (cable, dvd, etc.) Recommended.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

WOW! This TV is AWESOME!!Picture is great with Blu-Ray and even my wife loves the sharp picture. Panasonic and ABT are the BEST!
This Television Lived Up to the Hype
from Orlando, FL
Before deciding upon this particular television, I researched [@] and Consumer Reports. Both sources rated this television the best in one and darn near the best in the other. Consumer Reports also ranked Panasonic as being the brand television that had the fewest problems. The television picture was impressive with standard cable and other high definition sources. So far, I am very thrilled with this purchase. I also thought that the THX sound on this particular television was just fine with me. I have no plans on getting a surround sound system for it.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery was prompt once ABT received the television. It had been backordered for some time. The box was a little beat up upon arrival, but the television was well packaged and arrived with no damage of any kind. I was able to inspect the television for any damage prior to the delivery people leaving. The 18 months no-interest financing was a determining factor in my decision to purchase with ABT. They also had the lowest price around, free delivery and no sales tax! I saved some money by going with ABT!
from Boston, MA
This television had a lot of hype on the message boards and reviews were stellar. It lived up to them all.
Delivery service was great. I can't figure it out - best service I've received in a long time
As Good As It Gets!!
from Seabrook, TX
This TV was rated as one of the best... and it IS!!! REALLY!!Panasonic is the new king of Plasma... and this TV will really open some eyes as to what Panasonic has done.Beautiful, Bright, Seamless picture, with no hint of the digital pixelation you see in the stores. I considered an LCD for cost and energy consumption, but am really happy I went with the Panasonic Plasma. The picture is so much more lifelike and colorful, and CLEAR... no motion issues, doesn't make you feel like you are watching a cartoon all the time!! This "V10" series is the way to go for the small incremental cost versus the S or G series. The price was right also.... held on to my old projection TV as long as I could, and this was the year to make the switch~~thrilled with the purchase... absolutely NO complaints.
Blake at ABT Electronics out of Chicago, was GREAT!! Very helpful, and ABT got it to me quick!! I ordered on January 1st, and had it hooked up and running on the 7th!! Tracking information was timely and helpful, and the third party delivery service they used was great! I will look to buy from ABT again... and YOU SHOULD ALSO!! Thanks ABT
The reviews don't lie
from St. Louis, MO.
One of my regular uses is to watch cable tv without the visual benefit or the cost of upgrading to the digital tier. Surprisingly, for such a large screen there isn't the graininess one would expect from a lower resolution source. It's not a perfect picture but much better than expected.I'm very pleased with dvd's played through a first gen X-Box 360 at 1080i. Note: this player is not upscaling so again I give credit to Panny for high quality imaging, color, contrast etc....I also have the X-box HD-DVD external drive but I'm limited to 1080i since my early generation equipment is not HDMI cable compatable. The component cables which can provide superior output than HDMI (twisted pair)is not supported by Panny's processor for progressive scanning. That's my only complaint, why limit the tv's capabilities in this way? For those user's with all HDMI compatable equipment you have three inputs so you should have no problems getting the perfect picture.
V10 Series is Excellent
from Cary, NC
I have this 58" V10 setup in my living room home theater. Stepping up from a rear projection 720p TV, all I can say is WOW! The resolution is amazing and the black level is very good. THX Mode looks excellent. Burn in is not an issue as long as the TV is adjusted properly. Blu-Ray discs look stunning and DirecTV HD looks very good. Even SD programming is quite watchable. One minor con - the speaker sound quality is not great. If you turn off all the surround simulation modes, the speakers work for casual viewing.
The ordering and delivery experience was a Joy. Megan processed my order and the TV shipped out the same day via AirGroup. I called AirGroup to arrange delivery and they provided an expected arrival date (3 days). I called AirGroup on the date the TV arrived locally and said I would really like the unit today if possible. They called me back 3 times with status updates and I had the TV in my home by 5:30 PM. The driver (a contractor) helped me unbox the unit and check for damage (none!). I could not have wished for better service.
Excellent TV, the best so far!
from Phoenix, AZ
Great picture and sound
By David N
from Houston, Tx
This is by far the best TV I've ever owned. Very vivid colors and black is actually black, not dark grey. I have not adjusted the picture settings yet, but the default "studio reference" setting seems very good to me. The TV also seems very fast in executing IR remote commands, making it easy to program fairly complex actions from my universal remote. My only complaint is that it has a wired network connection instead of wireless. Hopefully the reliability will shine as bright as the picture.
