Years of Beautiful Images Long Panel Life, Up to 100,000 Hours - One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

100,000 Hours Panel Life

Environment-Friendly Panel Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel - Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.

Environment-Friendly Panel

Easy Access to Helpful Functions VIERA Tools - The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to access and understand key functions. Simply press a function button, and an explanation appears on the screen. Keep the button pressed to activate the function immediately.

I loved the TV, esp the picture. But it has developed a spider crack. While hardly noticeable unless you are up close, I am concerned that it will get worse. Supposedly it is caused by thermal expansion. The TV is only 8 mos old but I am hearing that Panasonic won't cover this under warranty ! Do your research on this issue before buying.

        Comments about Panasonic 60" VIERA 1080P Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

        Love this TV. It has a great picture! Several reviews indicate that there is a problem with a buzzing sound coming from the TV. Ours had this as well. Called Panasonic and they set us up with a local company that came out. The problem was some loose screws inside the TV. Apparently this is a pretty common problem with some Panasonic models. Technician tightened up the screws and this fixed the problem! If your TV is buzzing I recommend addressing this before your warranty runs out!

          Best Uses

            Comments about Panasonic 60" VIERA 1080P Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

            The Panasonic plasmas are heads above the rest of the HDTVs available, and this is supported by many independent sites (CNET, etc). NO motion blur exists, colors are vibrant, and black levels have improved dramatically. I wonder about the reviews knocking the tv for sound/audio inputs, since the vast majority of people today would a) be using a separate receiver and b) would be connecting the sound from the cable box to the receiver. You can't expect cinema sound from two small speakers behind a massive screen. For the 99% that use a receiver, this will be the best purchase you will make for any type of tv watching. Only warning...the TV generates a good deal of heat compared to an LCD/LED, so be warned to have an open door or fan on. Overall, a great purchase and a very satisfied owner.

                  sitting side by side with another brand - dark picture. very poor sound forcing the purchase of an expensive sound system - only has optical sound out. no easy way to hook up computer - no vga connection. Even though the price was right I had to buy extras that now has the price up another 200 dollars. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this tv.

                      We purchased this TV on Superbowl Sunday to watch the BIG GAME! Could not be happier! Had the the TV calibrated last week, and let me tell you.. it really is impressive! The bezel design seems a bit dated, but other than that, this TV rocks for the price range. Blu-ray movies come alive with so much detail we didn't realize what we were missing! It's true that the optical out is only stereo, however the HDMI output has ARC, so not a problem for me. It isn't a full blown "smart TV" , but it has some basic internet features that I like. We also bought a Panasonic Blu-ray player at the same time, and it paired well with this TV! Great Job Panasonic!

                          We are upgrading to this TV from a 7 year old panasonic rear projection HDTV. We have had this tv for two weeks now and it has been great. The picture quality is great and I love the Viera Connect! It is so nice to be able to stream netflix without having to go through our PS3. There are also so many other options I can't wait to try them out! So far it appears to do everything we want it to. Bluerays look great on it. I haven't tried out the 3d features yet, but will soon. It seems very user friendly. People that come over are amazed at the picture as well.
