Oh damn! Panasonic almost got it! Finally making a sophisticated looking TV but made one major design flaw, the silver-edged bezel. What were they thinking? Why don't they just make it look like the Kuro and be done with it, thus decreasing the cost to make it? I read that in Asia, particularly in Japan, silver or chrome is very appealing. To them it looks hi-tech and expensive. So forget function, mass market appeal trumps it.
Hopefully, they'll do away with this silver edge in the US version or at least make it a black/dark stainless steel or brushed aluminum. It looks like they will have a better looking remote but no 3D glasses which is a bummer and I think the stand doesn't swivel. Well they got cheap on other things to bring us better looks and Kuro-black picture.
