TC-P60U50 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Picture and Bang for the Buck Bought this to replace another brand's flagship 3D in 58 inch. Just couldn't get an acceptable picture for the dollars spent after attempting calibration from on-line sights several times. Bought this at an electronics big box chain as an "open box". Got it home and set up was a breeze. Picture literally knocks yer socks off ! Automatic brightness feature is great for changing the lighting in the viewing room. If you don't need a lot of "fluff features", 'cause I never used them, then this Panasonic HDTV can't be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish I could see the score. So when watching the game the score is cut off. I have go through all the format and aspect settings and ready what Panasonic has to say. They say its Dish. Dish claims its the tv. Needs more HDMI but for the money good set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST VALUE HDTV available A great picture at a super price. Fantastic for sports. This is my third Panasonic TV, second plasma and it replaces a projection. My previous TVs have never ever needed service (over 8 years of cumulative use).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Had a 55" LED for 10 days. Took it back and got this Plasma. Should have stuck with my research and not got fooled by in store displays of lcd's. Plasma is the way to go. It blew away the LED I had. I got tired of the motion blur in the LED. Picture quality is fantastic compared to LED. A little heavier but not so heavy that me and my wife couldn't lift it. More bang for the buck. Cost less than the 55" LED I took back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd Panasonic Plasma Purchased a 42" Panny last year at this time and have had 0 issues so when it came time to replace the old rear projection TV in the family room, I checked prices and found this 60" at a great price at WalMart. Couldn't be happier. Great picture quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC I did a lot of research before I purchased this TV, I have LED, LCD units but nothing I have or had compares to the picture quality of this Plasma. The sound quality is as good, I want to connect surround sound to my TV once I talk to a Panasonic rep. I consider this a value. Thanks Panasonic for the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 50in Great 1yr later Great TV. The sleep timer is a few steps, (unless i read the manual and find out how to set it to 1 step maybe) but the auto off/on is cool. The connections are reasonably limited, Hdmi and sd card slot are also very cool, but if you have more than a video game system and a cable box to hook up.. there's a reason you pay more for those. i had to convince the upgrade to the 50...plenty- and appreciate it every day, but the 60's are awesome. yes i recommend

  • I can access other Apps on my TV, but cannot access Netflix. How can I fix this?
    Symptoms:
    • When the Netflix app is selected, the Netflix splash screen appears, then Netflix closes and returns to the VIERA Cast home screen, Network Services screen, or HOME screen.
    • When the Netflix app is selected, "Unable to Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later" is displayed
    • Netflix can be accessed, but when a title is selected, "Unable to Play This Title Right Now. Please Try Again Later" is displayed.
    • Netflix can be accessed, a title can be selected, but during playback the picture blanks out, buffers, or freezes frequently.

    Additional Information:
    • Network applications on Panasonic products are only accessible on networks with high speed internet access.

    Suggested Solution:
    • Power the Netflix ready device on and allow at least 90 seconds for it to connect to the network before performing a Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application. If the Netflix application fails to open, manually change the Primary DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and the Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4. If there is only one DNS setting available, change it to 8.8.8.8 (click here for a TV network troubleshooting tutorial.)
    • Once the DNS has been changed, perform another Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application.
    • If none of your applications can be accessed, unplug the power cord of your modem or router for at least 10 seconds.This will reboot your modem or router.
    • If the Netflix application still fails to open, try another network application. If other applications function properly but Netflix does not click here for Netflix Help Center or call Netflix customer support at 1-866-716-0414.

  • The power light on the TV is on steady, but I do not have a picture, sound or both?
    This could be caused by a few factors:

    First check to ensure your TV is selected to the correct input (Source). If you are watching cable or satellite, following the cable from that device to the back of your TV.
    If it is connected to antenna, HDMI 1/2/3, component or video you must also have the TV input select to match that connection. On the remote push the input button to check what source is selected on your TV.
    Very important, you must ensure your cable box or satellite unit is turned on.
    On some cable and satellite boxes, you may get audio with no picture if the box is turned off. If this does not resolve your issue, you may require service.
