Hi have a VT60 55" panasonic is the image quality of this good?
Thanks

the image quality of that is quite good. i have one of their last plasmas as well. unless you go OLED you would be hard pressed to find any non-plasma set capable of perfect black levels.

be careful with Kodi however on this set:

Plasma TVs run extremely hot and to this day in spite of all the attempts to prevent burn-in and ghosting, it will still happen. any static images (think Kodi UI) can cause ghosting quickly; over long term (hours?) burn-in which effectively ruins the display.

the ghosting goes away quickly and significant ghosting can be "cleaned" with the built in tv SWIPE or various videos designed to remove it by displaying a random set of color-rotating pixels on screen.

for me, when i know the TV will sit at the kodi menu, i tell my source to blank the video signal (in this case I feed the source Kodi HTPC through my Oppo BDP-105, which has a feature to turn off the video signal).

IIRC Kodi can dim its UI if no activity takes place which helps significantly to reduce/eliminate ghosting and burn-in.

never play video games on a plasma. and watch a mixture of widescreen/full-screen/4:3 ratio content to keep the screen wearing evenly.
