I bought this tv at a great price from Panasonic direct and am not disappointed. I looked at this product many times in the store and came away impressed. It does not have the dark available in the Pioneer Kuro but it is also quite a bit less. The color is deep out of the box, I plan on fine tuning it shortly.

I highly recommend this tv as a main unit.
