"Panasonic TC-P60S60 Plasma HDTV"4.5 starson by Karen4love
Pros: + Plasma HD is fantastic! Picture, colors, ease of use
+ Built in DLNA with built in wireless is very satisfying
+ Input lag is low due to the plasma technology. Gaming is responsive.
+ Very easy to set up
+ Reasonable price
Cons: - Cons: Only 2 HDMIs
- Some reflection if you have a lamp on behind you or it's bright in the room
- Sound quality is not great so I would definitely recommend investing in other speakers
Summary: I did a lot of reading [CNET reviews, magazines etc], visited retail stores, talked to friends before deciding I wanted Plasma and without all the latest bells and whistles like 3D and I already have wifi internet. More than one friend said they could 'see' remnants of 3D interlace [assume they meant passive] where the picture seemed more jittery without the glasses. Then the active 3D actually manipulated the glasses to sort of 'unsynch' each eye through very fast shuttering.Edit:
Didn't understand the technology completely, but suffice it that I did not want to be 'locked' into having to use glasses just to watch TV. Articles emphasized that normal 2D was not altered without the glasses, but then, as mentioned, some friends told a different story. My lean on 3D is that it is a passing fad, but I could be wrong; but I didn't need it.
So, I went after the very best Picture quality within my budget to replace my old Samsung 60inch DLP [the core dlp chip went bad and Samsung was not assuming any liability for what they admitted were 'bad' chips; hmmm...a $2000 TV should last more than five years shouldn't it]. Anyway, the Panasonic P60S60 was exactly what I was looking for, with high reviews [at that price level], 2013 technology, with just the right amount of wifi connectivity that would be useful to me.
WOW is all I can say about this unit's picture quality. Wow again. This is what HDTV is 'really' all about. Everything looks like 'blu ray' crystal clearness...you know, where it just jumps out at you. I wish I could articulate it better...but Crystal Clear is all I can think of.
Now, before you buy this set, make sure of the number inputs you will need, as this one offers only a kind of 'bare bones' connectivity, such as only 2 HDMIs, one component, a opitical sound output...and that's about it [well, with the standard coax from cable box connection no one uses since HDMI came out]. That was PERFECT for my setup. But if you have a blu ray player, maybe a computer, or some other HDMI device, well, only 2 HDMI's could be a deal breaker.
But that picture quality...WOW; I cannot imagine it being any better even in top end models such as panasonic has such high reviews for. I got exactly what I wanted, paid what I consider a fair price. Since I've only had this unit several weeks, I can't comment on the longevity, but at this point, I am well pleased, a satisfied customer. Wow again [on the picture clarity]; sharp.
