"Excellent buy for the money"5.0 starson by PhilColeman
Pros: Sharp clear picture; instructions are clear and understandable; beautiful in appearance.
Cons: Speakers are "tinny." If possible, go to a separate speaker system using external amp.
Summary: I had a 4-year-old Panasonic plasma and wanted to upgrade. Panasonic has a deserved reputation for outstanding picture, which was my primary concern. After all, isn't a good picture the reason one buys a plasma in the first place?
After looking at competing brands, I found myself looking at Panasonic as the "gold standard" to excellent viewing. Now that I have this model, I must say there has been a quantum leap in quality in the past 4 years. Oh yeah, it was 1/3rd the price of what I paid 4 years ago! I'm a very happy camper (and viewer).
