I got this TV last November and have been using it extensively up to this point. Panasonic is known for their plasma TV's and this particular unit has excellent picture and very rich blacks. It is highly recommended to do the break in slides and tweak it in the "secret menu" before watching it because the default settings don't do it justice. There's been complaints and reports of gradually rising black levels, which I have not personally experienced myself (not a videophile by any means). I have it connected to my receiver, PS3, cable set-top box, and @ times my laptop. Having 3 HDMI slots is very useful. The one thing about this TV is that it's significantly heavier than LCD's and the power consumption is greater. I do hear that faint buzzing sound that is found on most plasmas but it's nothing major and doesn't take away anything from the awesomeness of this unit. If I am in a market this year I will probably aim for a bigger size TV!!
