In Reply to: RE: I'll never forgive Panasonic for discontinuing their plasma. posted by Mr. Dick Hertz on September 10, 2017 at 21:45:38
I have a 42" Panasonic Plasma that I bought in 2003 or 2004 for nearly $2K. It still works perfectly. I wish I'd moved faster to get one of the last 60" Panasonics Plasmas, but I did get a 51" Samsung Plasma in 2014....knock on wood, it still works great.
Mine was the 8500 series 51". Although the picture wasn't as good as my Panny, it was a nice TV, while it worked.

It's a 51" 5500 series which was all that could be had when they were closed out in January of 2014. Brightness could be better, but it looks awfully good in a dark room.
My only complaint was that it seemed to have some burn in from stations that put those annoying banners on the bottom of the screen. I've since sworn off those channels and it seems to have gone away for the most part.
Yea, my Panny had some minor burn in too. I had an NBC4 logo in the bottom right corner, and a PBS News hour in the bottom left. It wasn't too bad though. The settings have white rolling bar you can use for that, but it didn't work. I got the Disney pixel-flipper that was supposed to fix that, but it didn't work either. They eventually went away on their own.
