Strongly recommend this product
Good clarity and deep black
YouTube HD videos are in perfect display
Sound is OK.
When I placed my SD Card from my Canon Camera, I could view the picture, but couldn't see any video. It looks like it couldn't read the video format.
To expand on this "buzz" if your using this as a tv maybe 15-20 ft away in a living room environment you will NOT notice the buzz. However if your planning to use this fairly close to you as say a monitor, the buzz is quite noticeable during quiet points.
3d seems awesome, though I have no experience with other 3d sets so cant say how "awesome" it really is.
I'm dissatisfied with it. After five minutes of warmup a 1" line of purple pixils begins to extend across the screen, 1" from the top, visible against a light background. Sometimes the band is quite full and then it changes to barely there.
I called Panasonic twice after changing HDMI inputs and disconnecting the Oppo Bluray, HK AVR 435 receiver and Dish DVR. Customer Service could not explain why this is happening. I also called an authorized Panasonic service center and the technician said it was probably a panel issue. As it is less than 50", In-home warranty repair is not authorized. I have no intention of paying $80 for a service call and would never consider disassembling the thing for Carry-in service.
I'd like to add that flesh tones vary from HD channel to channel. Also the sound is tinny and distorts at relatively low volume levels. Except for a more detailed 1080p picture, this Panasonic compares unfavorably with my 2005 Panasonic 480p TH-37PD25. Bummer.
for an extra fee and the lack of even one pair of 3D glasses included is like selling
a new car and making the tires an option.
