I purchased one for $25.00, not a thing wrong with it except no remote. Beautiful!
You got a steal.
I am selling mine now but want more than $25 for it.

The original remote for that model is

EUR7636070R

Panasonic no longer has these but eBay will have them once in awhile.

I got a chance to pickup a TH-PF9UK for $100 on craigslist - should I go for it?

It does have a remote - it does not have a stand. So mounting this could be a pain.

Common problems and what kind of lifespan can I expect with this thing?

I plan to check the on/off cycles and the total hours

I don't think I'd do it. These sets are pretty old now, regardless of how many hours it's been turned on. Mine died after about 7 years. Not a terrible lifespan, but I'm the type of person who only turns on the TV when watching a movie. I never have the TV on as background noise. So I probably logged around 15 hours per week, less than 6,000 hours after 7 years.

When my Panny died, I bought a larger Samsung plasma for $500. I think the blacks were slightly better on my Panny (especially when it was new), but otherwise the Samsung has a better picture.

The biggest difference was the weight. Being accustomed to the weight of my 42-inch 2006 plasma, I couldn't believe how much lighter my 51-inch 2013 plasma was. To hang the old 42-inch plasma required 2 people because of the weight. I hung the 51-inch plasma easily by myself.
