Summary: This TV died with the blinking 10 times LED issue and it has no obvious blown parts. We had this set for only 26 months when it died. I've checked several websites and Forums to find out this is a very common problem and fixing it will only lead to it happening again most likely. Bad design will not buy a panny again.
Panasonic 50 in. HDTV Plasma TV is incredible! So worth it!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We have had the Panasonic 50 in. HDTV plasma for about a year now, or close to it. We use it daily to watch cartoons, news, sports, regular programming (Dish network) and movies. We have it mounted above our electric fireplace on a dual mount, not an arm, but two areas are attached to the wall. The color is amazing, there is no blurring from rapid movements like we have seen in many other lower priced televisions.
Excerpt: what a performer. unbelievable bargain. What can you say its the best in its range. If you bought it it was a wise decision. If you didnt get it now. They are pioneers in their field. They know the business and how it works. If you need a choice think fo this product. It is the best you can get without burning a hole in your pocket. I would recommend it to all my friends and even my enemies. It is that good.
Excerpt: THIS T.V IS THE BEST! me and my fiance own two of this t.v because its so great! wonderful picture on it nice screen energy star ratings looks very nice and has so many featurs to this t.v it even has a memory card slot so you cant put a memory card in it and have a slide show of the photos you have took on the t.v for everyone to see large beautiful pictures without squenting to see them on a clamm camra screen and this t.v has a light bar on it so if you leave a video...
Excerpt: The U2 series of plasma tv's from Panasonic is excellent in terms of quality and price. Plasma provides brighter colors than LCD in addition to 600hz technology compared to LCD's 120 or 240. This allows for no motion blur, fast moving sports and movies to look excellent, and video games to look ultra realistic. Sound: Without external speakers, the Panasonic U2 series still sounds great. Quality is clear and volume is able to go quite loud.
Excerpt: I bought this television during Black Friday and got a fantastic deal. $699.99 before taxes. I'm not sure what the cost of the television is right now, but that seems like a tough deal to beat. Even if you buy this television for $1000, I'd say you got a great deal. The television is not too heavy and is amazing to watch sports games on. The images don't burn in like others sometimes say. I connect my television to my laptop through the HDMI cable and it works great.
Summary: Having bought a Panasonic TC-P46C2 46-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV and very pleased with it, I had no problem choosing this TV. It has a full 1080p panel. Compared with the "C2", the "U2" has 3 HDMI inputs versus 2 and it delivers a slightly sharper picture with slightly better rendition of subtle colors. Also, viewers can sit as close as 4' from the screen and not notice pixelation (with the C2 viewers need to be seated at least 7' away from the screen).
Summary: 2 of the last 4 issues of Consumer Reports have reviewed LCD & Plasma televisions. The Panasonic TCP50U2 has not only been a value buy on there, but also their coveted recommended buy. Picture quality is amazing for the price. Sound could be a little better, but in no way bad. Fantastic TV for the price.
Summary: When I first started looking at tv's I honestly never thought I would have gotten a fifty inch tv. And I didn't Think I would have bought a plasma either. I use this tv for movies and gaming . The 3 hdmi inputs are plenty for me I only have my playstation 3 connected to it for games and movies . I didn't need usher connections or interest because one I have a computer a short walk away and two my ps3 connects to the internet already!!!
