"WOW! Great Plasma at a great price."5.0 starson by Foxman098
Pros: Purchased from Costco for $2999; they double the warranty to 2 years. Costco guarantees to fix/replace the set in that period if something goes wrong. This 58" plasma is beautiful. Picture is as clear and sharp as any I've seen from any brand.
Cons: It didn't mount itself on the wall! Other than that, no cons yet. It's very quiet and clean looking. The anti-glare works pretty well. The sound is tremendous from the 4 hidden internal speakers.
It is heavy (140 lbs)
Summary: For the money, you can't surpass a buy like this. And having not bought it through a web dealer, I am not concerned with Panasonic giving me grief on the warranty. Costco will make it good! Beautiful lines and functionality. Picture is exactly what I dreamed of having, and the sound is room-filling from the four speakers within the set. And the speakers are hidden! The set is wall mounted on a "Simplicity" wall mount ($79.00 from Costco). The mount is very very sturdy and high strength. It is also a 12 degree tilt system. The manual is to-the-point and easy to read and understand. The remote is simplistic and functional as well. I enjoy the Viera feature which links all of your equipment, even the Scientific 8300 cable box.
