Let me say at the outset that I love Panasonic Plasma T.V.'s had two, still got one of them, and I don't want to upset any new Panny owners. However, is it me or do others feel the same, what am I referring to? The present Panasonic range of Plasmas - black, black, and yet more black, in particular that cabinet stand YUK! its like something from MFI or a third party manufacturer, really cheap looking and tacky. I stood in my local electrical store, (first visit for a while) and my jaw just dropped open, talk about an ugly duckling. I've no doubt the PQ and performance will be as good as ever, but aesthetically - sorry Panasonic but you've really fluffed it with this one.
