Panasonic TV lasted roughly 18 months before it stopped turning on. Power button flashes 7 times. Panasonic Support implied they would consider covering some of the repair. However, they said I had to pay for a service call from their preferred repair center and then send them the estimate. The SC board was failed (very common durability issue with the Viera TVs). After paying $110 to have a service call and a $400 estimate, Panasonic Customer service waited 3 days before finally insulting me with an offer to only cover $138 of the repair. Spend you money elsewhere. After a google search of the Panasonic SC Board failure it is clear it is a known quality issue, but Panasonic is perfectly content to not do the right thing and correct their mistakes. Will never buy another Panasonic TV and neither should you!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
