We have had this Panasonic 50in plasma for 5 years
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We have had our panasonic plasma for 5 years now and I have some mixed feeling on our t.v. It has a really nice picture, and sound quality is wonderful. However the t.v has a mode that is like a screen saver and it comes on in the middle of us watching a movie. It also has a hook up for video in front which is really annoying.
Excerpt: I have had my Panasonic 50inch plasma for over a year and I LOVE IT! Never had any problems with it. The set up was so easy and the picture is beautiful and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I am very happy with my purchase choice.
Excerpt: I purchased this from Best Buy and I am really pleased with the price and quality. It was simple to set up and I've had zero problems with it since then. The picture quality is probably not the absolute top of the line these days but it's above average in my opinion. For a plasma television it doesn't heat noticeably at all. It's lightweight and seems to be pretty sturdily built.
Solid, reliable, inexpensive TV with decent 720p picture

Summary: Few would consider a 50" TV as a secondary TV, but for those who do, this is the perfect TV for you. The picture isn't going to blow you away and it has noticeable flaws in the darker tones and refresh rates, but if you're looking for a clean, solid picture at a great price, you're going to get it with this Panasonic. You're also going to get a TV that's got a decent set of features and is easy to use with universal remotes, thanks to a fairly intelligent user interface.
Summary: Have had this TV about 6 weeks. It is a warranty replacement for an Insignia 50" plasma that was displaying a degraded image. I agree with most of the 4/5 star reviews here. Good TV, great picture, sound is so-so (but a little better than the Insignia it replaced). Looks good, there is screen glare but it is rarely a distraction. So all the positives already mentioned I can second. There are negatives.
Summary: I wasn't really sure what to expect out of this tv, I was unsure of this tv basically because of the low price. This is my first plasma television and I know this is Panasonics entry level tv, but I was pleasantly surprised at the image on this set.Is it the best picture out there? No, but it is a good picture, I mean I paid $650.00 for this tv and it is the best one I have ever owned.
Summary: This set is a great value and a very good TV, period. I purchased this set based on my experience with the Panasonic 42" 720 Plasma I purchased 2 years ago. It has always had a fantastic picture and has been trouble free since I purchased it. I purchased the 50" Panasonic plasma hoping for more of the same. Highs: * Picture....super * Plasma.....great image from any angle. No "burn-in" issues yet (no issues on my 42" set either). * Price, Amazon was very competitive.
Summary: Got this tv to replace a Haier 42" 1080p LCD and I'm totally happy with my purchase. Found a better deal at Vann's but since I shop at amazon periodically, thought I'd put in my two cents worth. Delivery was fast and fedex guy was very helpful being that's I'm disabled and needed a bit of help to lift the tv to a stand. TV is not that heavy and attaching the base is a breeze, no swivel.
Summary: I originally bought this television through Target.com (twice before finally sucking it up and hauling it home myself from a local Target store. Screen arrived smashed from both deliveries so if you can buy locally, that may just be your best option). I'm certainly not an expert on what makes one television better then another but I can say that the television looks nice, was a breeze to set up (I did require the assistance of two strong men to help me with the lifting...
