1. The "Model" you have.
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Reviews of prior Panasonics, improved specs for new model, styling of the 600U, compared to other displays in the price range, obvious choice even against Pioneer which has a very reflective high gloss black bezel but similar PQ for more money.
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
HD PQ is outstanding. Built in sound has been good enough that setting up my surround sound became a low priority.
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Ambient light glare is still an issue with plasma displays.
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
It'd be nice if it had coaxil digital out instead of just optical and about two more inputs, ie: another HDMI and a standard S-Video on the back of the set.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your Plasma.
Bring back the swivel pedestal from last year. I'd like to be able to angle the set from time to time. Shame on you for skimping on the remote. It was much better last year. Where's the back lighting?
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
The TV guide was actually useful for OTA. VHS was watchable. SD was better then I saw in stores on most other models.
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
The remote is not very strong on IR communication.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
I've been on the fence a few years waiting until I could afford it. Today's prices are the lowest ever and the sets are better than ever. Especially the 600U series, in particular, is worth it compared to alternatives. Nevertheless, its still a lot of money but not in the $5K to 10K range an excellent 50" set used to be.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
1080P 50" sets are coming and the prices will go down. But life is short. At the price point, Panasonic delivers the best product for the price at the current resolution. The 600U series is a class act and as nice looking as any other set out there with identical build quality to last year's model and better specs. Get one of these and you'll be a happy camper until everything goes HD and 1080P a few years down the road.
