I purchased a Panasonic 50" in November of 2012. I love the size of it and all the extra features. There are a few things that I hate about it also. So far it has been well worth the money. I am going to start off with the pros: 1st Size Yes size does matter! I like that it's a 50" screen and has very little frame showing. Most of the plasma televisions I have seen have had large frames around the screen. The frame around the Panasonic is about 1/4 inch. 2nd : Clarity The picture clarity is crisp and bright. A lot of televisions you can either see the pixels or it appears dull in color . The picture on the Panasonic is awesome! 3rd:The extra ports for additional electronics. Now for the cons: ......I could find nothing wrong with this plasma set.
