When the TV showed up I was excited but that soon turned to disappointment when the tuner would not bring in most of my cable TV stations.

Panasonic makes outstanding plasma televisions. It was a toss up between Samsung and Panasonic for plasmas, but Samsung doesnt make a 65 incher. Love this TV. Its like a drive-in movie theater in your home. Great picture and fast transitions unlike most of the LCD TVs out there.

Love it We purchased on Amazon in December 09 for $1400 after quite a bit of quality/price comparisons. Almost a year later we still love it.

I replaced my ten year old 65" rear projection TV with this sleek and beautiful Panasonic Viera S1 Plasma.The picture is gorgeous,black levels superb,... This TV is absolutely gorgeous. We had a 50" Samsung plasma upstairs and decided to put this 58" Panny in our new home theater in the basement.

Not only the best large screen plasma but without question the best large screen TV out there. Purchased from [...] through Amazon and received almost a month-and-a-half ago. Product arrived on time and in good condition. Excellent picture.

I will start by saying that I have owned quite a few flat panel hdtvs. I am pretty big on the whole HD thing. My 60" Toshiba projection TV broke only after 2 years and 1 week, so we hunted for a new TV for quite some time. Bought this plasma 3 months ago at Best-Buy. Come home yesterday and the known Panasonic "Blinking LED of Death" had hit my set.
