Panasoic HDTV works well with good price. I am very careful using money. I did many window shopping with notes taken. I went to almost all electronic store writting down all TV features and price. After that I carefully compared each other to make a wise decision. Eventually I found it is the best deal. I've bought one for 7 years and it works very well. Sometimes I keep it on whole day in hot summer. I do worry if it get too hot and stop working. But It never have any problem at all. I know panasonic is a good brand so I bought TV in this brand. The surface is easy to clean up with sweefer duster. HDTV is very clear with high defination. It make me proud of myself. I remember when my friend visited my house, he happened to noticed the "HDTV" sign on my TV. He put up his thumb saying "HDTV, that is for high level people like you". I was very happy at that time. As HDTV was not so usual 7 years ago.
