Comments about Panasonic 55" VIERA Class ST50 Black Flat Panel 3D Plasma HDTV:
Bought the product because Consumer Report said it was the best. We agree. It is great - picture, sound, quality.
Service and delivery comments:
The delivery person/set up tech was in a big hurry. Gave no instructions. In fact, he left before we even got a cable connection. Later, we called for service because we thought the tv was defective. Customer service was great. Second tech explained how to use it. Paying for set-up is a waste of money.
Merchant response: Abt apologizes for any poor service that you may have received. We value our customers highly and it is never our intention to aggravate our customers in any way. Please contact Abt customer service at 847-967-8830 for assistance.

About Me Enthusiast
Purchased the ST50- 55 inch plasma based on my overall preference for plasma vs led. ST was most recommeneded plasma. Once the video settings are dialed the picture is great. Casual users my prefer a brighter picture as the pansonic is not the brightest picture. I found the out of box settings of the panasonic needed tweaking.
Yes. Yes package was in condition. But only one delivery person to handle the large package.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great picture for the price
Great TV. Love the picture quality. I have owned it for about two weeks now and bought it from ABT. It was shipped via airgroup. I have never used them before but I guess they were picked due to the size and the weight of the package as well as it being a free shipping item. I ordered it Friday, and it was in the regional office the following Friday but they did not have anybody to deliver to me the same day. So I picked it up myself and both ABT and Airgroup were very helpful in that process. As far as the TV itself goes, I upgraded from a 32" Toshiba (60HZ 1080p LED backlit) and this TV is simply amazing. It is heavy indeed and it was not easy for me to carry to second floor and set up by myself. The picture quality is great. I did not "break it in" for 100 straight hours like many will suggest since I still am not sure how much justification there is to such extreme measures. However, I did run the slides in standard picture mode with lowered contrast and brightness for about 40 hours and watched multiple football games, played PS3 games, watched history channel and CNN for hours and noticed no IR (all within the first week). The only time I noticed some IR was when I put the TV in game mode and did not turn the brightness and contrast down and got stuck in a game at a place where I was trying to solve a puzzle and there was a bright green still image on the screen for about half an hour or so... I noticed IR, ran the anti IR scrolling bar for 15 minutes and that took care of it.. I ran the slides overnight and the following day anyway and haven't seen any traces of it since. The TV has many built in safeguards to prevent IR though (like dimming brightness and turning the tv off if inactive for some time)Bottom line: If you can live with the idea of owning a plasma, can handle the weight of the TV, want better picture quality and don't mind taking care of the TV and using it carefully for the first few hours (lower contrast etc.) then this is the perfect solution for you.

Panasonic Plasma rocks!
from Syracuse, NY
I never thought I'd own plasma, well Panasonic is the way to go and this set is an incredible value. Abt totally rocked in terms of pricing, service and value.
