"The best Plasma I have ever seen (2-D & 3-D)."5.0 starson by sickjohnson
Pros: Picture is the best I have seen and the colors seem endless!
I like how the 3-D goes in and does not come out at you and the glasses are the best to date that I have used. The Plasma gives off very little heat, front or back / top.
Cons: Price could be better always but for what you are getting I'm honestly asking too much.
3-D still needs more work of course, there will always be some issues because 30% of the population can't even use it.
We will have to see about burn in?
Summary: First the picture is really the best I have seen, or at least as good as I have ever seen. Usually computer monitors are better because of the higher resolutions ect...but this is not the case here. Picture is super sharp. I have always disliked plasma because of the screen-door effect as well as reflection; now I am a fan. Not sure how good panasonic's burn in prevention is on this TV, that will take time to descover. The colors on this TV seem endless, I just loved the colors!@hakim100 - Burn in is still a factor, and you are right to have reservations about it. The manufactures have made changes to deal with it, it is night and day from before. The problem still exists because the hardware is essentially the same, it is prone to burn in, but the software knows what is going on and it is working to prevent it now. Even though you are at higher risk, I still don't think it will be a problem unless you leave a game paused on it all night. Also there is a program in most menus to clean burn in, basically you just reburn the entire screen and you are pretty much back at 0 again. The Samsung 8000 is pretty sweet, but I am a bigger fan of older 950 series myself, the background seemed less grainy then the newer ones, and also speed was an issue even at 240Hz.
The 3-D is the best I have seen so far. Sony is not out yet but I would suspect they will be as good since they make the cameras for 3-D. The cool thing on the 3-D on the Pansonic is the image goes into the tv and is not coming out at you like the Samsung. I really liked that. The glasses are the best out so far also, a very smart design. If you wear glasses already you should be happy how they are designed to fit over. The down side of the glasses may be their no charge-able watch battery; we will see, but I think it could also be a plus.
I also like that there is almost no heat coming out of this plasma, very nice! Panasonc should be able to say with ease that their plasma is the most advanced by holding all of Pioneers and their own patents. It shows.
If you think you are a very visual person this is your TV.
Panasonic you have saved the plasma. LED LCDs, you have work to do (white / yellow & image sharpness and speed)!

Did you go check out the new Sony 3-D TV? I was impressed a bit by it too.
It all comes down to personal preference I believe. I'm a projector guy. (PT-AE4000 or HD-20)
Find a good warrnty and enjoy!
