Like thousands of other people I too have the blinking ...
20 July 2014
Summary: Like thousands of other people I too have the blinking red light and a non working TV that won't turn on. This for some reason seems to happen just after warranty expires. This is a well known problem to panasonic and they do nothing to stand behind their product. The power supply -mother board is defective in this TV and breaks with regularity, so much so the parts are on indefinite backorder.
Summary: I'm sorry to see Panasonic leaving plasma market. I had the 50" 720p (purchased from Best Buy in 2007 after the Amazon delivery disaster), and I understand why this version is so much more affordable. The back panel is flimsy sheet metal, and there is a loud buzzing sound from the back of the TV. You can't hear it with the sound on, but it's not encouraging.
Summary: Find the fine tuning settings on CNET and you will have a unit that creates a truly fantastic image. I find the picture produced far superior to friends top LED televisions. Have no regrets in my purchase.
Summary: I purchased this TV for the "smart" part. I have connected it to the internet both with an ethernet cable and using wifi. Both speeds are terrible and video's sputter and freeze. I have dealt with Panasonics customer service on this issue 4 times on the phone and once in e-mail. They are of no help, don't care and want to charge me for a service call when it is still under warranty. My advice is to find a smarter tv.
Summary: I'm a cable guy...my job is pretty much watching tv all day in different people's houses...I can tell you that the only HD or 3D that have have seen that is as good as this is the VT-50....been fixing cable for 13+ years...in that 13 years I have seen thousands of defective TV's....Samsung is one of the worst...Sony is good...never in 13 years have I seen a bad Panasonic... Sound sucks...just like every other flat screen...that's why they invented sound bars..
Summary: Yes, it's a plasma. A bit on the dark side. But the picture quality is way better than LCDs, LEDs, anything else. Absolutely love it. We got a sound bar for it, so don't really know about the sound quality. But a great purchase.
Summary: Purchased my Panasonic TC-P50GT50 and loved it right out of the box! Super great colors with deep blacks and a sleek design along with a faster computer processor for wireless entertainment. Paid a little extra to get the TC-P50GT50 for the THX viewing mode and love it! The sound from this television isn't the best, but then that seems to be universal for all plasma/LCD/LED televisions.
Summary: What a great TV made by Panasonic. The best one I had in my life. It replaces a 32" LCD Sony Bravia, which was inherited by one of my nieces. I needed to replace it after 3 years of use. I did a lot of research and after all the excellent reviews this product has, I decided to buy it. No pixel damage or image retention, and no ghosting at all. This TV is perfect in every way. No problems at all and the THX Cinema Mode (either in 3D or 2D) is simply awesome.
Summary: picture is excellent,but internet browser needs alot of improvement.some sites that use to work fine no longer download all of screen and no picture mode for tv while surfing the web. I had a google tv that I used this to replace it because I wanted a second 3D tv,miss my google tv but needed 3d. a trade off I had to take. hopefully panasonic upgrades there firmware.
Summary: This is by far the most beautiful and functional TV I have ever owned. Set up was as simple as assembling the stand (5 minutes) and getting an extra hand to help me lift the TV onto the stand and then onto the entertainment center. After agonizing over the ST50, I ultimately ended up choosing the GT50 for the 4th HDMI slot and the built-in THX modes.
