RIP Panasonic Plasma

Best series of TVs I have owned.
from Green Bay, WI
This is by far the best TV picture I have ever experienced!
Best TV I have seen
I debated before I spent the money on this tv. It was worth it. Everyone that sees the picture comments on how good the picture is for a tv that is this large. So happy with it.
Great picture, looks good, supper slim and sleek. Only issue is the voices are harder to hear and get drowned out a bit by background noise but I now use a center speaker and all is good.

I have model TC-P55ST50, close to this one. Great TV with a really nice Smart TV setup. Highly recommend.

I love my new 65VT60
from New York, NY
I purchased the Panasonic 65VT60, 8 weeks ago. I have been able to use it consistently since purchasing and this is by far the best TV I have ever seen or owned. I am so glad I made this purchase. â€¢ Picture Quality â€" o Action Movies: I recently watched The Amazing Spiderman on blue ray, with this tv. The picture was outstanding. Crisp, clear and bright. I tried out the â€œvividâ€� setting on this movie and was blown away by the contrast and black levels. It felt like I was in the tv o Sports: Iâ€™ve been patiently waiting for football season to come back before writing this review. One of the main reasons for buying this tv was to watch football every Sunday. The 65VT60 did not disappoint. There was no motion blur whatsoever, while watching live football action. I watched the Superbowl last year on a 70inch LED and my 65VT60 blew that TV out of the water. o Various cable programs: Iâ€™m still playing around with the various picture settings to figure out what works best for each program at different times of the day. This tv is placed in a bright room and the THX bright room option is perfect for day time watching. â€¢ VIERA® Remote 2 â€" I downloaded the Panasonic remote app for my Iphone 4S. I love that I can access all features of the tv, including advanced picture adjustments, through my smartphone. The app is extremely user friendly, even my wife was able to use it. â€¢ My Home Screen is the initial screen you see when turning on the television. This TV is so big that youâ€™re able to watch tv in one corner of the screen while surfing the web, etc., in another. My home screen makes this TV the centerpiece of the home. You can access apps, surf the web and even make voice memos for other members of your family. â€¢ Built-In Camera â€" I LOVE having a built in camera on my television. Skype is amazing on a 65 inch tv. My kids get to skype with their grandparents and see them on a HUGE screen instead of a small computer monitor or tablet. The pictures is clear and the app works seamlessly. â€¢ Swipe & Share 2.0 â€" I tried using Swipe and Share from the Iphone app but unfortunately, my pictures and video would not transfer to the television. I kept receiving an error message. Iâ€™m not sure if itâ€™s an iphone issue or the type of media I was sharing but I really hope this works better in the future. The idea is great but the usability is currently limited. â€¢ Audio Performance â€" Built-In Speakers The VT60 produces the best sound of any TV Iâ€™ve had. That being said, I recommend a better sound system. If you are spending this much on a TV, I suggest using a sound bar or receiver/spearker combo. â€¢Voice Interaction â€" using the touchpad remote, I was able easily search for restaurants and sports scores with the press of one button. The voice search accurately picked up what I was saying 90% of the time. â€¢ Electronic Pen â€" The electronic pen is a large stylus like writing tool that allows you to safely draw on your VT60 plasma. I bought the Electronic pen so my daughter can use the drawing/painting app. She is obsessed and addicted to this app. I have to keep an eye on her to make sure sheâ€™s being gentle with the television but Iâ€™m really glad I bought the pen. I hope more apps become available that allow use of this pen, but if not, its still worth using on the paint app.

Wow! Blown Away By the Picture Quality!
from San Francisco, CA, USA
Overall, this is an excellent performing TV; the best on the market. Some of the less important features need a bit of work (smartphone remote, voice interaction), but doesnâ€™t take away from the awesome picture quality. When watching a blueray on this TV, everything else doesnâ€™t matter. Its that awesome! Picture Quality: Excellent!! Picture presets in my opinion are perfect without having to do too many tweaks. For most programming, I use the THX Cinema mode without the motion smoother (a feature Iâ€™m still trying to get use toâ€¦I feel it makes image movement unnatural). I havenâ€™t had the time to calibrate the picture using the professional and custom modes, but appreciate having the option in case I do get around to using them. Watching action movies is a treat. Dark levels and shades were awesome, coloring is perfectâ€¦.so much detail with bluray movies and HD content. Sports programming from motorcycle/auto racing to boxing, baseball and basketball look great. This is where the motion smoother works well with fast moving objects. Smartphone Remote: Using the smartphone as a remote was not ideal. To get to the various buttons required having to scroll to the left or the right to get to the desired buttons. Response is good and all works, but took considerable more time to get what I needed. Maybe this is something that I can become more efficient with over time. Home Screen: Setup is a breeze, easy and intuitive, but probably something I would not use on a regular basis. With my busy schedule, getting access to things like my calendar, weather status, and other apps is something I prefer to do from my smartphone, on the go. The Home Screen Features are plenty. There is a decent number of relevant apps. I also do like the DLNA feature to pull pictures/videos from my NAS drive. However, there are some videos that would not play so adding support for all video and audio formats would be good. Built in Camera: Resolution is only OK. However, for things such as Skype, the camera works fine. Swipe & Share: This feature is great! It worked perfectly. I was able to share picture and videos directly from my phone to the TV wirelessly. Sometimes playback was a little choppy, but only once in a while. Audio Performance: The built-in speakers play considerably loud without distortion, but lack very deep bass. But this is a given for built-in speakers. Overall good sound, especially for built-ins. Voice Interaction: Needs some more work. No matter how clear I tried to speak into the remote, more often than not letters like â€œmâ€� would come out â€œnâ€�.
from Joliet, IL, USA
I own the 60VT60 and it has the best picture I've ever seen. I went from a old 50V10, which I thought had awesome black levels. The black levels on this are the best I've seen. I used to be a salesman for a high end A/V store so I've seen them all. But this TV takes the cake. I watched the Stanley Cup and WOW. The motion control was outstanding compared to my old V10. My girlfriend could actually follow the puck! Although she didn't care for the motion smoother when watching Avatar in 3D. I mainly watch the TV in the home theater mode which has pretty accurate color out of the box. I'm going to let the set break in for about 100 hours and then have it professionally calibrated. This TV has so many features I really don't know where to begin, so I'll focus on a few. First the home screen. You can customize it like your smart phone. Choose between two layouts or create your own. Makes it easy to keep up with Facebook and the weather with out checking your phone all the time. You can also upload your own back ground photo. Second is internet connection/apps. It took about 1 min to set up the wireless internet connection so I could Skype my sister. The built in camera works great! There are so many apps I have yet to use them all. I do like to check the weather a lot though. Third is the swipe and share. I downloaded the Viera TV app for my android phone so I could show pics to my girlfriend and not have her saying, "I can't see, gimme your phone". The best feature on the Viera app is the calibration controls. I fool with them daily. There is a slight delay using your phone because it goes through your wireless router. I wish it would be a direct Bluetooth connection. The fourth feature is Voice Interaction. Not a big deal to me but everyone else seems to love it. It works ok, a few times it didn't under stand what I was saying. But I guess all companies are doing it. You can also do the voice commands on the phone app. Another cool gizmo is the 2nd remote. I love the track pad and ease of use. I just wish it had the 3D button like the big remote for ease of 3D viewing. 3D viewing of 3D Blu rays is out of this world. The 2D to 3D conversion is not the best, but no company right now makes it look good. The glasses that come with the TV are the battery type, I kind of wish they were rechargeable, but no big deal. They fit over my eyeglasses and are comfortable. As far as the audio of the TV, the sound is good for a thin TV. I didn't expect them to be as good as they are since I'm an audiophile, but I was impressed with the thin drivers. For the money this TV is outstanding. If you want the best picture and black levels stay away from those LEDs and buy this TV!
Best of the Best
from Irvine, CA
I thought my last Panasonic TV was the best TV ever, but simply put, the 65VT60 I recently purchased is hands-down the best I have ever seen. The picture quality and vivid color in sports is great, the deep blacks in action movies (Batman) is very crisp and the display is just beautiful. Every time I turn on my TV now it brings a smile to my face. Some new features that this TV has the previous models did not have: (i) the new remote control, (ii) new home screen format and (iii) built-in flip up camera. The new remote control is great, very easy to use like a mousepad. However, being a traditionalist, I prefer the app for my iPad. Such a great feature offered transferring YouTube book marks from my tablet right onto my TV. The new home screen format reminds me of my desktop layout at work. Simple, organized and customize-able. I loved the features that were available on the default screen, but as I continued to dive into it, this TV's options are limitless. As aforementioned, the ability to have data transferred from the tablet to the home screen just makes every sync seamlessly. This has been what everyone is waiting for. The new pop-up camera. This is a game-changer in my opinion that I have never had on any of my previous TVs. The ability to Skype with my family through my TV display with Panasonic's crystal clear images make this the most enjoyable experience I've had with video chat. I love the ease of use, and I absolutely love the picture quality. We even used it to take a picture at our last dinner party and it was such a great option to have to gather everyone together for a picture since we were already there watching TV together. Absolutely love this product and very happy to be a new Panasonic TV owner (again and again)!
