Conclusion: I hate to go all out with a comment like this, but you just cant go wrong with a TV like the UT50 in the value category if you've got a good picture setting solution like ours. That's the key. Otherwise, it's a dim screen. It's got almost everything feature-wise you need even if Panasonic's Internet suite is not the best. The otherwise dim picture will look good with our calibrations. Almost every retailer seems to be around $899 for the TC-P50UT50.
Pros: Good solid feature set (Smart TV and 3D), Smooth picture performance and up conversion from 480p, HD performance with fast action is no problem with 2500Hz equivalent sub field drive, Dark Shadow detail from Infinite Black 2 Panel, Up-conversion from Standard Definition signals, Appearance, built quality, Price/Value, Better for Bright Rooms than other plasma brands, Light throughput/extra brightness
Cons: Motion artifacts a little more pronounced, Difficult calibration caused by unstable colors/No 10pt., Background visual noise, graininess, Blacks not as saturated as top tier, Speaker/Sound Quality Volume good, but hollow effect
