Some inital problems/frustrations, but still very happy in the end
Pros: Huge viewing screen
Cons: First, I placed my order on the morning of Monday 7/16/2012, yet it wasn't shipped until that Friday, and it wasn't received until 7/25/2012. Now to someone who buys the tv and doesn't care about when it arrives that timeline probably isn't a big deal. But it is to me, both due to the simple length of time it took to arrive, and the fact that I didn't know what was going on with my order until the TV was a day or two away from my door step. I guess what I would like to see from newegg is a slightly better heads up and/or real time listing of what is going on with my order. Remember this, from the date I placed the order (7/16/2012) until earlier this week (7/23/12) the order was listed as "packaging" on newegg's website.
Other Thoughts: So after four (4) hours of searching for replacement screws & then half an hour putting the tv together (not a bad build time) I fired up the TV. After a quick software update I was able to immeidately log into netflixs via the on board application menu and watch an episode of curb your enthusiasum.

Have no fears!
Pros: I searched the web over review after review of the Panasonic TC-P55ST50. First of all, the reviews are correct, this is one of the best deals on Newegg. The picutre of this TV is awesome! Everytime I see the quality of the picture I remain amazed. This picture matches that of the Panasonic Flagship model that is $3,000. DVD/Bluray/Media Player, and Cable with HD are the top of the line picture quality as well. So, if you are wavering on which to buy, spend the few dollars more, look away from LED/LCD models and buy the model they are all trying to copy!
Cons: No cons at this point. Nearly 2 months in.
Other Thoughts: Could of used one more HDMI port, but you still have several other ways of hooking up your media.

Good picture quality, couple of flaws
Pros: Reasonable price
Cons: Very loud buzzing sound when the screen is predominately white. I've looked around in the options and so far have found nothing that resolves it. There is a "Mosquito N.R." option that sounds like it addresses this issue, but toggling it on and off does nothing. This is an extremely annoying issue that I don't have with the '42 Panasonic Plasma of the previous year's series.
Other Thoughts: I'm not an expert on TVs by any means and have only taken a cursory glance around the internet searching for a clue. There isn't a whole lot of info about this particular model since it is relatively new. I'd love to find some quick, easy answers on how to resolve the issues I have with the TV, but the last time I called Panasonic support for an issue I ended up going around in circles for hours with their tech support.
