This has been a most excellent flat screen. Hooked up to Directv HD and I have no complaints whatsoever. The end.

This TV has been everything we had hoped it would be. Great picture, color and very reliable. It was well worth the value.

At the time I purchased this TV in 2009, it was a higher end TV and cost around $2600. For the last 4 months, it has not powered back on after shutting it off and wanting to turn it on in a few minutes. It would blink twice repeatedly so I'd unplug and wait for 1 - 3 hours for it to cool down. Then, it would work so I'd leave it on unless I knew I'd be away for at least that long. I'd seen that this was a common problem with Panasonic HDTVs on many web sites and some suggested letting it sit. Yesterday, it happened again and I thought I'd give their online support a chat. Well, in troubleshooting the issue, the technician had me do a factory reset (hit - button by the volume while holding the Menu button on the remote) and then do a "hard start" which was holding the power button for 10 seconds. After that, it started blinking 10 times. Now, it doesn't work at all and Panasonic hasn't offered any compensation. It seems to me that when you pay $2600 for a TV it should last more than 3 years. I guess that is why they only offer 1 year labor/parts on their warranties. Given this is such a pervasive issue and they don't stand behind their products, I wouldn't buy this TV or any of Panasonic's TVs.

This TV has been wonderful for the 2 1/2 yrs of use. It all came to a crashing halt, yesterday as I was trying to get ready for the game and my TV would not turn on after programing the anttena channels. I unplug the TV after about about 8-10 mins of waiting. when I turned the set on I see a 3 inch verticle black line...top to bottom on the left side of my screen. I try to access the menu to do a to do a burn in wipe, nothing still there, I switch inputs and components...still there. My heart started poinding with the frustration so I feel dissapointment of the one star customers, you would expect a more reliable product for the money spent. I hope this helps with future buyers, as this porblem is evidentailly getting more commmon.
Good luck to all with thier next purchase.
much love and God bless

Well. Just got the 2 flash of death. According to my research these have a serious flaw. Now I'm facing an expensive repair or replacement after only two year. Beware of this television....

Had this TV since the beginning of 2009 and last year an intermittent problem with a pinkish strip about 1/3 of the way from the left the TV. Contacted Panasonic and it went away ... so I let the issue sleep. The issue came back earlier this year and when I finally got around to ask the service person to come and fix it, they said it is going to cost $2,300 plus tax to replace a video board!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do yourself a favor, STAY AWAY!

Will try to post some pictures here later on.

Update as of Oct 20, 2011.
The above replacement part number is: MD50F11A1J. Part alone is $2,000+ and labour is $300. I could not believe how they price the part itself.

Will post photos here.

I too am a casualty of the dreaded blinks. Just got off the phone with Panasonic who are soooo sorry I spent 1500 bucks on a POS machine. I am a teacher and on a limited budget and saved up for a big screen plasma for our new house. Read all the glowing reviews and went with the big purchase. Now 2 years later, I sit here typing S.O.L. with Panasonic who claim only 1% of TVs have this problem. Do me a HUGE favor and buy another brand. Do not be one of the 1% who seem to be a lot more than 1% according to the internet. Nice job with customer service Panasonic. I am a very brand loyal purchaser who will NEVER buy another panasonic product. Heck, I wouldn't even spend a dime on a pansonic battery after this.

These TV's have known issues with their technology. Often last less than 12 months before requiring multi-hundred dollar repairs.

Panasonic has been completely useless.

Had my Panasonis 50" Plasma for just over a year and is just out of warrantee. tried to turn set on one day and it would not, power light only blinked 10 times and stopped over and over. Seems Panasonic knows they have an issue with the video boards on there sets as well as the power supplies ( if you see 7 blinking lights). This can happen the day you get it home or some time after using it, check out the blinking light issue on Panasonis Plasma TV's on the internet. Was able to fix mine by swapping HDMI ports between the cable boc and the Blu Ray player but not convinced I will se this issue again. Buyer beware, I recommend you stay with Sony or Samsung, much higher quality TV's although they can cost a few more bucks. When this one drops Im heading for a Sony !!!!

Yes, I know this is supposed to be for 800U's and mines a 700U but the point is that they are basically the same and i need to vent. I referenced consumer reports and at the time the 700U was the cream of the crop. I will agree, it is a very nice unit. the sound produced from the tv speakers are very impressive. (surround system hadnt been hooked up yet). its all for not as this TV was purchased 2 years ago and now its gone black. so yes, this tv is a great tv....its RELIABILITY on the other hand is NOT!!!!! you know, you get these reviews and such, when they are new tv's, they're ALL nice tv's but i guess when it comes down to it, its about reliability as well. i have had CRT tv's last for over 20 years. this is pathetic. a $2300 unit only lasts 2 years. i have since read reviews with similar problems with these panasonics. the repair guy told me that there was a class action suit and that panasonic has extended the warranties on 42" plasmas. any lawyers out there want to see what we can do for the 50"ers. picture and function great.......while it lasts.
