Performance

This HDTV looks amazing and the picture is very good, but there was many things I was unaware before buying a plasma. The "burn-in" effect is the thing that is a dealbreaker. This tv is based on older plasma technology and will have uneven wear on the screen if you don't know how to tweak it. It's very bothersome and people should consider getting LCD/LED hdtvs instead.

I love this TV

by Ken on 10/9/2011

I now own 2 of these Panasonic 1080P Plasma TVs and could not be happier. I have a 2 year old model in my living room and purchased this one for the family room. The sound is only adequate as the speakers are located in the back so a sound bar or sound system is recommended. Read More

Features
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.
VIERA Image Viewer:
Equipped with an SD card slot, VIERA makes it easy to view full-HD photos and motion images that you shot yourself. Simply insert the SD memory card into the slot, and you're ready to view your photos and full-HD videos on the big screen. You can make your slide shows even more impressive by adding background music and attractive frames. With VIERA's big screen and superb image quality, family and friends will love sharing your memories.
Game Mode:
Games are much more fun when there's no lag in operation. VIERA automatically chooses settings that provide the optimal image, so you get super-fast response and no delays. Even dark scenes with delicately rendered details are beautiful and easy to see.
600Hz Sub-field Drive:
600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects.
Deep Color:
VIERA faithfully reproduces all the colors inherent in today's most advanced image sources, such as Blu-ray Discs and DVDs. Use an HDMI cable to connect VIERA to the playback device, and you'll enjoy the kind of rich, vibrant colors that make viewing such a pleasurable experience.
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.
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.
x.v.Color:
VIERA models with x.v.Color compatibility reproduce all of the vibrant color in images recorded by wide x.v.Color gamut compatible camcorders. These rich, vivid images are a feast for the eyes.
EASY IPTV:
Simply press the VIERA Tools button on the remote control to directly access a variety of Internet services. Enjoy online music and movies with ease.
DLNA:
Connect a DLNA-compatible VIERA and DLNA-compatible AV equipment to your home network, and you can watch movies, listen to music, and view photos from any room in the house.
