It's very disheartening. I love this TV, and I've never regretted the price tag, because I knew I was buying a brand with a great reputation. I didn't expect something like this, though it turns out it's a known issue; basically, the voltage protector in the 07-09 models wasn't the best, so they're known to blow.
The question is, will Panasonic make good considering it's a known problem?
I suspect they will, though certainly the whole process has been miserable. We're in the process of making our claim, which is riding on whether they agree it's a known issue (which their own contractor states it is) and if they'll fix it.
My wife is frustrated, but in the end I can't imagine Panasonic won't take care of a known issue in a major brand. I've always bought this brand, being a dude who is nothing if not brand-loyal, so I doubt they want to lose a customer like that.

...where the the brotherhood concept represents the warband's leader, who obviously influences that branch of the army.
I've tried to avoid an overarching Counts-As like this, but frankly with 1) GW's continued price increases, and 2) my shortage of time lately, I like the idea of an army I can work on in manageable chunks.
