I really enjoy my Viera television from Panasonic, the picture quality has never left anything to be desired, it just works, I don't have to do a lot more than turn it on and pick a channel. Picture Quality Excellent picture quality, I've never had an issue playing anything in high definition. Sound Quality While I actually have an aftermarket surround sound system hooked up the the television, I sometimes use the remote to separately control said sound system and I'm forced to use the analog system on the television. It works just fine! Durability My kids have actually been known to shoot Nerf darts right at the television, from both close and far ranges, it has never done any damage, thank goodness. Design Easy to mount, easy to maneuver, looks nice. Performance The television does everything I want the television to do and it plays every high definition channel that I have in excellent quality with no issues. I've had the television for a couple years now and it's very nice, has withstood my two children and two moves so far!
