Amazing Combination: Size, Looks, Cost & Performance
by morganhigham on September 2, 2009
Pros: 65" is a great size for my living room, and the picture quality allows you to feel that you're there. A seated newscaster looks the same size as if they were on the other side of a window. The custom pro pic adjustments make any source look great!
Cons: As with all plasmas, the light reflection can be annoying. It is certainly watchable in the daytime with the shades open, but a bit distracting. The THX mode default is "HD Size 2" 100% scan, which introduces some edge noise with some sources (cable)
Summary: I've been waiting for months for the 65 inch V10 to become available. Almost pre-ordered it online several times, but was leary of ordering before it was in stock. ...
Summary: I've been waiting for months for the 65 inch V10 to become available. Almost pre-ordered it online several times, but was leary of ordering before it was in stock. Happened into Best Buy on Fri Aug 21 and saw the 58" on display. Asked about the 65" and found out the store had just received one that day and intended to set it up for display the next day. After a short negotiation I had secured this first set for $3899 ($100 off MSRP) and had it delivered free on the following Tuesday. First thing I did after setting it up was to switch the picture setting from Vivid to THX and the picture was amazing. Flipped through a few channels and watched some dark scenes from shows on my DVR that I had been saving just for this purpose. The clarity in low light scenes better than I had imagined. I have played with the custom pro picture settings some, but haven't spent enough time to get it looking better than THX yet. I have enjoyed the Viera Cast features, especially the weather and YouTube. I was watching a movie on cable and started wondering what other movies had the same director. I paused the show, switched to YouTube and looked up the director's name and watched a few clips of him taling about the movie I was watching and a few others he had directed, then went back and watched the rest of the movie. It was nice to be able to do this without having to pull out my laptop. I was also impressed with the picture quality from YouTube, even when I put it on full screen (I don't think most YT videos are prepared to be displayed at 65", but it still looked pretty clear!) I haven't rented a movie from the Amazon download service yet, but I'll have to try it. I can't believe that the picture will equal BluRay though- which reminds me... For some reason it was nearly three days of watching this set before I remembered that I hadn't see a BluRay disk on it. I had been too caught up playing with the settings and Viera Cast and setting up my Harmony report (which is a little tricky to get set up for Viera Cast because I wanted the direction pad to control the DRV when watching cable and to control the TV when using VC, but I figured it out.) Anyway, I finally got around to putting in a BluRay disc and the picture went to a whole other level - like nothing I'd seen before. Going back to Comcast compressed 1080i HD signal after BluRay was like looking through a mist. Now I can't rent BR movies fast enough. I almost want to stop watching my favorite shows on TV and wait for the season to come out on BluRay.
Well, if you're still reading- I love this TV -I want to stop writing now, go close the shades and start watching.

Cinema Quality Experience - Wow
by clischy on December 10, 2009
Pros: Clean lines, exceptionally easy to set up and top shelf color and saturation. Easily on par with the Kuro Elite.
Cons: Remote should be fully backlit and not just volume/channel buttons. Weak speakers but it's connected to a home theater set up anyway.
Summary: This TV has exceeded all expectations and was in the running with the Samsung 65" LCD and Samsung 63" Plasma. The Sony 5100 65" is poorly executed and washed out. ...
Summary: This TV has exceeded all expectations and was in the running with the Samsung 65" LCD and Samsung 63" Plasma. The Sony 5100 65" is poorly executed and washed out. Ultimately, the LCD could not reproduce the richness in color and deep blacks that make movie watching at home an exceptional experience. With this size, it really feels like a small theatre from about 16 feet away. Viera Cast is a neat feature with Amazon VOD access. Adding the LG BluRay was even better with VUDU (1080P movies!!), Netflix and Roxio Cinema Now. Little calibration was needed to get the picture looking really clean and connectivity is straightforward.

Great TV.Pic quality and clarity,set up easy, pricey.
by Pepperhead57 on November 9, 2009
Pros: Picture quality and clarity, colors are vivid, black levels look great. HD looks exceptional. Viera Cast. Set up was easy. Connections on one side of back panel for ease of terminations. Aesthetically pleasing. Matches my stand and surround system.
Cons: Pricey. Needs a USB port for WIFI. Must use a wireless router/receiver or ethernet connection. Remote needs more illuminated buttons other than vol & chanl which I use my receiver remote for these.
Summary: Perfect TV for the home theatre. Movies and sports alike. The HD picture quality from cable, saltelite, streamimg, BD-DVD, HD-HVD is great. 65" size works perfect in my 22' x ...
Summary: Perfect TV for the home theatre. Movies and sports alike. The HD picture quality from cable, saltelite, streamimg, BD-DVD, HD-HVD is great. 65" size works perfect in my 22' x 18' room. Very thin and sits close to wall. Viera Cast is nice but still limited. Would like to surf the web and get e-mail without connecting a computer. Connections are on one end of the back panel and easy to reach since the stand does not swivel. Set up was a breeze, even the wireless network. You can turn off the speakers. This is good when using a receiver for sound. To use wireless connection you need a remote router/receiver. It would be nice to have a USB port for wireless adapter. Comes on quickly. Great looking TV design. Had it for 2 months now. I love it! Still pricey.

Summary: We purchased 2 of these within the past year and now have come to be very disappointed. We researched and compared many other plasmas and believed in Panasonic's Viera Cast hype of "infinite upgrades." We recently read many articles about Skype and Netflix being added, but not to the 2008-2009 models. Wow, great for us, ours was purchased in 2010 and also has February 2010 as the manufacture date. Just spoke to their support and come to find out, no, our model was most likely made in 2009 and does not support the new features we were so looking forward to. Maybe Panasonic will work on it for "older" models, but no guarantees. This is one of the worst cases I've heard of. No respect or concern for their consumers. I hope Panasonic can turn it around, but for now I will stay away from purchasing their products.
Screen went blank within 10 days of purchasing
by singhsidharth on August 30, 2010
Pros: 1) I bought this TV thinking that the 65 inch screen would be perfect for my home theatre and the Panasonic engineers would have benefited from the Pioneer Kuro black levels
Cons: 1) I was so wrong, my brand new TV went blank within 10 days and does not turn on
2) The concierge service made me wait 30 minutes before they came on the line
3) They finally agreed to send a technician and said the "board" might have to be replaced
Summary: For the first time in three decades of active tv watching, has such an incident happened to me. I should have never left Sony. After buying this TV for almost ...
Summary: For the first time in three decades of active tv watching, has such an incident happened to me. I should have never left Sony. After buying this TV for almost 2500 dollars, I now am sitting with a lemon. Panasonic refused to exchange my TV and said they can only repair it
