Summary: This came with a blue ray DVD of Avatar and 4 pairs of glasses. The 3d works quite well if you're willing to wear the dorky glasses. If you're a huge 3D fan then it's a nice feature. I really bought it because it has a very nice picture and was very well priced for its size — at the time. . .
Summary: Got the TV in January 2011. Fans failed December 2011, a few weeks before the warranty ended. Now, 18 months later, the fan(s) failed again. Repair will be $200 to $300. It is like a British sports car: it is nice, when it is working.
Summary: I have a TCP50 VT25 tv. All three fans on the main board failed in 16 months. The fans did fail outside of the warrantee period: but, I thought Panasonic might furnish the parts to fix the set, as the auythorized repairman said they often do. Wishful thinking. Also, Panasonic has not redesigned the fans, so if you have the fans replaced, you cannot plan for a better time-before-failure. I don't recommend this tv to any one.
Summary: I bought this TV about a year ago and now it stopped working. Will not stay on and red light keeps blinking and because its a month over the warranty period I may have to pay to have it fixed.
Summary: I have owned this TV for almost 8 months now and it is by far the greatest electronics investment I have ever made behind my PS3. Everything about it is astonishing. The picture quality is superb, and only surpassed by the elusive Pioneer Kuros. 3D, which I bought as a side-feature, is gorgeous. Plasma is the way to go for 3D. But I got this for the 2D picture and can't complain one bit. If you see this TV, you will appreciate the infinite amount of praise it deserves.
Summary: When the delivery truck arrived, I noticed that the model number on the carton was TC-P50VT25X. What was the X? I had never seen that anywhere. I accepted the TV, set it up, turned it on - beautiful picture. Then I got curious about the X. It turns out it means made in Mexico for the Latin American market. The instruction manual is in English and Spanish but the warranty info is only in Spanish and all the authorized service centers are in Mexico; I'm in South Florida.
Summary: The TV is incredible. The 3D is fantastic, and the 2D is equally so. Colors are deep and rich and saturate the experience in nuanced tones. There's a reason this TV is consistently rated at the top of the list by professional review sites and why so many people recommend it on Amazon. If you want a 3DTV, the TV25 series can't be beat, not in quality or in price. It's changed my attitude toward home entertainment.
Picture quality is outstanding, but image retention issues make it not worth it

Summary: Everytime I turn this tv on, it brings a smile to my face. The picture quality is the best I have ever seen, especially the THX mode. Blu-ray discs become a must. The black levels are so good you may find yourself picking out blu-ray movies that feature dark scenes just to see how well they look. Dark games like Fallout 3 or Arkham Asylum look simply incredible. 3d Works well, I have tested it with the Killzone 3 demo on PS3 and you feel totally immersed.
Summary: I bought this TV to jump into 3D, mostly for 'Avatar', although I now own several other 3D titles. This TV replaced a 50" Hitachi I've had for about 4 years. The picture quality is just amazing. It is much brighter and crisper with more detail and contrast than the TV it replaced, even though it is the same screen size and resolution.
