"Stopped working after 18 months of light use."1.5 starson by franco_aventine
Pros: none, its just the same picture as the rest of the brands more or less
Cons: poor quality
Summary: Got the Blinking Red light today (8 blinks) which means that one or more boards failed. Probably going to cost me 300 to fix cause the labor is 2x the price of a board. And then there is the hassel of it all. Panisonics only authorized repair place is a one man shop and the guy is out on vacation for a week...at the start of football season!!
Sorry, I would not recommend you purchase this unit. While its a nice unit to look at, 50 inch TVs that are hard as hell to throw in the back of your car to bring to shop (so you have to pay for a site visit) and which cost about 1000.00 should not be breaking down after 18 months...6 months out of warranty.
