Panasonic Plasmas?

I have been researching TVs and I think I want the Panasonic 50" Plasma S60.

Does anyone own a TV in the S60 line?

I have the ST60 model. It was the only 5 start review I've ever seen on CNET for Tv's.

Damn speakers in the back? In my room I have one of those mounts that angle out from the wall and I doubt that would work well with the TV at a 45 degree angle from the wall

Just get a sound bar. I got a LG wireless soundbar that's ****ing fantastic. Streams bluetooth too so I can load Lenny and Mitch on my smartphone and just stream it to the soundbar.

No problem. Really love the sound bar.

I can't rave enough about the Panasonic ST60 and the LG sound bar. 2 of the best entertainment purchases I've ever made.

OMFG you guys. After posting this thread I randomly searched Slickdeals for "panasonic plasma" to see if there was anything and the exact ****ing model I want was on sale at Sears down from $800 at $500.

It's the 50" S60. And I signed up for some rewards program when I bought it and got an extra $18 back.

Get this shit while it's hot.

I have the ST50 55" and it has been great. Excellent picture for the price so long as you don't have an overly bright room. Should be some nice deals out there with Panasonic announcing they are killing off their plasma line.

Only warning is be mindful of image retention. I have a tendency to use ESPN or ESPNNews as background TV while doing other stuff and all of static crap they put on the screen has a way of sticking around (use zoom if you have a similar same habit).

I'm worried about retention but from what I've read it's not an issue on this TV. However, I turned on my PS3 and then played Planet Earth and on the bluray menu, it is completely black, I could see a little retention of the PS3's XMB.

It'll go away. I've had a Viera for 3 or 4 years now and you know I play vidja games. A LOT. You also know vidja games have A LOT of static images (HUD). There has not been any permanent damage yet.

You're going to love this TV. Can't get those legit blacks anywhere else outside of a CRT and those don't even exist any more.

I got the 42" version of that tv for my kids 6 months ago for $399.

The netflix/amazon streaming is awesome. It's a great tv except for the sound.

Why is Panasonic phasing out their plasmas again?
