I purchased the 50" and it is absolutely amazing. First, the picture quality is amazing. Blu-ray discs look spectacular, 3D disks are unbelievable, and my Xbox 360 has never looked better. Second, the sound is terrific. I was not expecting much in the way of audio, but was blown away by how good the sound is on this TV. The USB ports work great for charging 3D glasses. I even hooked up an external hard drive, and it worked great with the media center on the TV. Bottom line, this TV is amazing on all counts. However, my buying experience through Amazon was not so amazing. I scheduled a delivery between 1 and 3 o'clock, took the day off work, and sat patiently. The TV was not delivered until 6:30, and I lost a day of work for nothing. A small price to pay for such an amazing TV.

This tv works wonderfully, but make sure you get the extended warranty! It just suddenly stopped working (wouldn't even turn on) after about 15 mo., so the manufacturer's warranty wouldn't have been in effect any longer. Luckily, we had purchased the extended warranty and were able to get it working again at no cost. But it took a week! It seems it needed a new motherboard.

It works fine until it breaks, and then Panasonic will not help you fix it. A huge waste of money, avoid at all costs.

First off I want to let you know that when you buy it, set the image setting to Vivid or something other than default. The picture is amazing! Also i was happy with the fact a 'plasma' tv, this tv, you could see the picture even if you are sitting at an wide angle. Other tvs are not able to do that very well. I do recommend having drapes that are facing the tv closed to prevent glare. Recently i found 3d glasses on ebay that were half the usual price to bought three of them and OMG! the initial cost of buying the proper panasonic 3d glasses is well worth it! It is just like being at an imax and even dare I say better! I rented 'on demand' streaming movies from my cable provider in 3d and wow. I will save money by skipping out on going to the theatre on joy-chancing movies like Godzilla and just wait until it is available for rent.
My tv is 2 years and one month old. the SS board gave out and I'm forking over the money for repair. So i can't promise longevity with this tv. Sorry Amazon but i recommend you buy this tv from a store that offers a long warranty and repair services. Because panasonic customer service is lacking. My tv waited just one month after my warranty expired to go Kaputt. but the geek squad is repairing it within a week. forking over the money to have this model fixed because i love it so. besides... I bought glasses for it. I HaVE to keep it. :)

I bought this TV in Dec 2012. Warranty runs out in Dec. 2013. TV stops working March 2014. This has got to be one of the best TV's for Samsung. Who would want to buy another Panasonic after this? My 37 inch Panasonic plasma is over ten years old and still going strong but this 60 inch is dead. Getting a new power board from shopjimmy.com for about a hundred bucks but TV's that cost this much ($1200.00 back then) should last for many years not a year and three months. For prices like that you should lease a TV for $80.00 a month and take it back at the end of every year for a new one.

Like others I was sold on the quality of the picture - also like others, in less than two years the screen went blank, the power light flashed, and no more picture. Customer service was little help other than to say it was out of warranty, and here's a service center you can call for repair. You spend $1000 on a product you expect more than a year or two of service. Never, ever buying Panasonic again! I will be reporting this to the Better Business Bureau.

Yes this TV had a really nice picture, but what good is that if the unit dies after only 14 months.
I have the dreaded 8 blinking lights. Google it.
Apparently not a very rare issue and I wish I had investigated their plasmas more diligently prior to purchase.

This is an awesome tv, great picture quality for both 2d and 3d. I bought the 55 inch UT50 from Costco in January 2013 so I've had it for over a year and I'm still amazed at this tv for the price. The picture is awesome, regular tv programming looks very good and blurays with the deep black levels this tv is capable of look incredible. Also excellent for gaming with low input lag time.

I did not get mine here. I bought mine at Best Buy (which I normally don't). I got this TV last summer. I went into Best Buy originally looking for an entertainment center. Noticed this TV (I got the 50 inch version of this exact model) on the wall and it was on sale because it was the display model Best Buy had been using with all the other TVs. The price? $589!!! SOLD. Took it home and it has been working great ever since. The picture is excellent. The 3D is great depending on the movie and is packed with other features. This picture is even greater in a darker room. So far I have not had any image burn ins or any other hardware problems with this tv. When the last black friday came around. I still could not find a better TV for the price I paid for! I have always used LCDs but never again as long as I can keep finding plasmas I will buy them. It is said Panasonic will no longer make them. Get them while y ou can!

I've had it for over a year now, and at times I am still amazed by how beautiful the images look on this television. This monitor looks best in a dark room without any light spilling in from the outside. When watched under these conditions, the images are the best I've ever seen in my life. The LEDs can't hold a candle to these plasmas.

Plasmas do have a strange, blocky effect when displaying certain types of images where the color grades from light to dark, but I knew that going in. If you read the other reviews they will make you aware of the issue. If it's a problem for you, then you should get an LED.

I haven't had any problems with the TV at all, but it took me a moment or two to realize why the picture looked wrong after setting it up. It turns out that you have to individually set up each input. Once you set up the picture on hdmi one, you have to go do it again on hdmi two and so forth. And you can have different settings for 3D than for 2D. At first it seems like a pain in the ass, but it's cool that you have so much control over how content looks. I found the best setting by looking around at other reviews.

Oh, I just remembered there was an issues I have with the youtube app. It would stutter and pause HD content really bad sometimes. There is a fix. It's just a matter of setting up the display options which makes no sense but works. When the youtube app is being displayed on screen press the "menu" button then "picture" then set the picture mode to "game", contrast to "100", brightness to "50", color to "50", tent to "0", and sharpness to "75", (scroll down) color temp to "normal", color mgmt. to "on", c.a.t.s. "Off", video NR "weak", then press "Advanced picture" and set Block NR "off", and Mosquito NR "off". It took a lot of looking to find this fix, so I hope it helps someone out there.

This is a great TV!
