Summary: After scouting around the internet for a few weeks, I decided to wait for the release of Panasonic's 54" G10 Series plasma - - and I have not been disappointed! I ordered online from Abe's. Shipment was fast and the price was right. The box arrived - - and it's a BIG box - - Panasonic's boxing was really simple. The top of the box slides up and off the base, and the TV is well-secured and padded inside. Unwrap and within minutes the TV is out and ready to go. I opted to use the included stand, screwed in the 8 screws and had my wife help me stand the unit up. HDMI high-def input from my DirecTv box or from my Samsung BD-P3600 looks razor sharp. The image quality is phenomenal on this 1080P plasma. The richness of color, the clarity and detail which this TV offers is exceptional. I've watched a bit of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on the TV already and was very pleased with the lack of motion blur. The only bottle neck left is the quality of the feed from DirecTv for television broadcasts! Blu-Ray discs looked unbelievable!
I've had the 54" G10 now for a week and I'm loving it! It's made sitting at home and having a 'night-in' a joy. I'm very pleased with the purchase overall - - and for the quality plasma in a 54" package for under $2000 - - I think the value here is outstanding!
