Summary: 9/12/13 Update. So not even 6 months after I purchased the television I noticed a thin yellow line that goes from the top of the screen to the bottom. This line occurs on all inputs. I first started off on my nightmare of an ordeal with Panasonic customer service. I called and was disconnected 3 times.
Summary: i bought this tv on black friday for 800.00 I'm not audiophile, but i do like gadgets...and electronics.. in our household, we have 47 panasonic plasma, 40 dynex, Samsung series 6 42, apple tv, ps3, boxee, audio receiver, sub, etc... here are the reasons why i bought them 1. ips pannel ( I already own apple cinema display monitor 30 inches... I like IPS pannel) 2. smart tv. ( i stream stuff all the time) 3. Panasonic 2nd top of the line model. 4. clean thin bezel.
Summary: The first unit I received had extremely uneven backlighting. There was a large circular light part taking up most of the center. That was surrounded by varying dark and light patches. It mostly showed on dark and uniform screens, like the black screen before and after each of the billion Huluplus advertisements. The replacement unit was better in that regard, but the bezel was damaged, pinched the lower screen, and blocked two of the edge LEDs.
Summary: people who dont own the tv gotta stop posting negative reviews. the only thing you are doing is reminding us that you cant afford the tv and how poor you are. if you stop wasting your time on amazon and start getting a job or two, maybe you will be able to afford it in a year or two. It is even more annoying that some people just said according to cnet the tv is bad.... dont u have your own thoughts? buy the tv first and then tell us what you think.
Summary: The good: The Panasonic DT50 series performs moderately well in 3D with less crosstalk than some rivals. The onboard wireless and full complement of video services will please Smart TV fans. The thin bezel and metallic finish is distinctive if a bit retro. The bad: This TV's picture quality is below average, especially considering the high price. Black levels are some of the lightest we've ever seen and shadow detail is washed out.
