I took delivery of the TC-L37DT30 on 10/21/2011 from Amazon. The main reason for purchasing the DT30 is, it is the only 37" TV that would fit in a standard 36" armoire which has an inside width of 34.5". Of course the other reason is its very good specs and the extensive setup settings.

After hooking it up, the out-of-box default settings were very good and I was impressed with the excellent detail. Although after viewing it for awhile, it seemed muted and the color had a sepia quality to it. A little too warm for my taste.

In my opinion Panasonic designed an outstanding TV, the picture is very lifelike with near non-existant motion blurring and excellent 3D performance.

This LCD TV is establishes a new industry benchmark. Way to go Panasonic!

This TV has been discontinued and Panasonic does not a direct replacement. What a shame...
