I guess this sums it up pretty well:
1. The "Model" you have.
Panasonic Viera TC-P50S14
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Price, and picture quality. $980 for a 50", 1080p Panasonic plasma is a great deal, especially if you consider that none of the LCDs in its price range come even remotely close to the Panasonic's picture quality, and to even begin to match it you'd have to spend like double its price on an LED-lit LCD.
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
The picture. I made my move from an older 27" CRT, and the difference is mind-blowing.
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Umm... Glare? It's not really an issue in my living room though. I don't know what else - I'm extremely satisfied with this TV. I do worry a little about the whole rising black levels issue. Time will tell.
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
Couple more inches of real estate, though 50" is huge in its own right.
I guess I wish it had more HDMi ports on the back, there's two there (along with two component inputs) and one more on the side, and wish I had three on the back in exchange for of one of the component ins.
Just nitpicking really, I can still hook up to in any device I will own in the foreseeable future.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
Put proper and detailed plasma break-in instructions in the manual.
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
The picture. Virtually all of my past experiences with HD material have been limited to LCD viewing, and one of the first things I popped in after unpacking the TV was Planet Earth on Bluray. I'm sure you can imagine how low my jaw dropped.
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
None, so far.
Biggest worry is burn-in, but I'm pretty sure Im being careful enough about that. No more than 30 minutes of the same channel, game, or non-16:9 aspect ratio for the first two to three weeks.
I'm also concerned about the rising blacks issue, though I don't seem to be hearing much about this problem from the S1/S14 crowd. I'm wondering if it's because the S1/S14 aren't as affected, or because not to many S1/S14 owners know about AVS forums, or this problem.
Again, time will tell.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
$980 for this?? hell yes, I think it's worth it. Would I love to see the prices plummet by 90%? Of course, but that doesn't mean this TV isn't a superb choice.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
