    Our 2009 TH50PZ 800U is toast ..


    Love the picture and the sound , but the power supply boards have the lifetime of a nickel rocket. It was one notch down from the top in 2009 with THX.


    Thankfully bought a warranty; 3 power supplies shot in 2 years.


    Dealer will replace it after attempts to fix it; so which 2011 model is comparable?:


    ST 30 1080 p but no THX

    GT30 "THX

    VT30 "THX"


    Of course, I would pick VT30; but would appreciate your wisdom on what you would accept.


    Thanks!

    I guess no one goes back that far.

    My shop is full of TV's 2 years old or less. Until Panasonic gets their parts supply running in a reasonable time frame , I wouldn't touch them. Great sets, beautiful picture, horrible replacement parts supply. I'll see if I can get any insight from one of the Panasonic service centers for these models. I only work on them on extended or out of warranty.
