Over a year since anyone last posted and just wanted to mention I bought a used ( obviously ) U50 locally via Craigslist, it was manufactured Nov. 2012 and has the =2 prefix and beyond that the previous owner ( or someone in the know ) already had settings matching more or less what is considered close to optimum without getting into the service menu - I have no idea if anyone has and I might take a look one day just to at least find out the number of hours. The set is very quiet and runs cool and hopefully will remain so for a few years. In the price range I was looking at there really was not anything else that would come near the image quality and being my first plasma all I can say is that it looks very good.
I was in complete ignorance as far as the existence of the Panasonic plasmas until just recently but glad I looked into them further and realized just how good the last two or three years of production really were, even today. Tempted to find a 60" one day but prices are too high and the chances of someone asking 2000.00 for a VT60 and you offer them around 800.00 ( which I understand is a fair price ) is most likely akin to a slap in the face for the Seller. Maybe a deal will come along, at least I have a nice U50 to watch.
