Conclusion: The TC-P50VT25 is quite simply the finest TV we have reviewed in 2010 for both 2D and 3D viewing. It's a bit pricy but worth it. Seek out a player/glasses/movie bundle so you can watch Avatar in 3D at home and with the improved rechargeable eyewear.
Pros: Excellent 2D performance - best black levels of any 2010 model TV we've tested, Very good 3D performance with minimal cross-talk, Enough picture tweaks to satisfy die-hard hobbyists and professional calibrators, Player/glasses bundles bring down the price of admission
Cons: Included pair of 3D glasses is heavy and can be uncomfortable, Problems detecting 2:3 cadence in 1080i signals in "auto" mode, Fairly high list price, but discounts are available
