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. . .
Pros: Very accurate colors & shading (black levels) Unlike LCDs there is very little motion blur Many input, 3D & screen size options Screen size & anti-glare Both the stand and TV are very sturdy, but not too heavy Image visibility good at all angl
Cons: Higher power consumption than LED TVs Plasmas can get a little warm on top of the TVs I have one dead pixel line on the right side of the screen after a year
Summary: Basically, if you are in the market for the best TV for the price, quality, 3d without crosstalk/ghosting this is the TV you get for now until the 2011s start getting released within a month or two. Although those will be priced higher, quite a bit higher, so.. you'd have to consider the cost benefit analysis. I absolutely love the picture quality and price for this TV, as the picture quality is excellent!
Summary: Have had this for a month or so now - upgraded from a Sony 34 in CRT HDTV. The picture quality, 3D and regular HD, is excellent. I compared this to the top of the line Samsung side by side in a specialty store, and the difference in quality, though not much, was perceptible to my average joe eyes in fast moving scenes. If picture quality is your key consideration, then you will have no regrets with the Panasonic.
Quite good, just some small things that Panasonic could have paid more attention to

Summary: My full review at how I ended up purchasing P50VT25 model: Link to my research while purchasing HDTV during Nov 2010 timeframe can be found by googling "srkkreddy hdtv" which leads to a blogspot.com page (somehow these reviews don't let me paste an external link). Excerpt from the above post: My experiences after the purchase: Pros: 1. I have had this TV for a month and have been quite happy with the TV picture quality. 2.
Pros: Picture quality & black levels are outstanding. Sports and HD movies are my main passions and this set really delivers. No buzzing of any kind & after 3 months see no problems with image retention or and no sign yet of any loss of black level.
Cons: Price. The G25 is available for far less and is an excellent set in it's own right, but put them side by side and in my opinion it's worth the extra money.
"Great reviews, but full DLNA support is the future!!!"
5 October 2010
Pros: I do not have this set, but I am in no doubt this review is accurate
Cons: Windows Home Server "Vail" is soon out with full support for DLNA on video/audio codecs. Current beta does not have full, but pretty god already (e.g. no MPEG-2, but full MPEG-4). TV producers need to give the users the power to see their content.
Panasonic TC-P50VT25 3D Plasma Review by Plasma TV Buying Guide
19 August 2010
Summary: The TC-P50VT25 is the highest end top tier offering from Panasonic for 2010. The TV is 3D ready, has THX certifications, is Skype enabled (camera sold seperately), and contains Panasonic's new NEO PDP (plasma display panel). How do all of these new features and the accompanying picture quality add up? PICTURE QUALITY RATING 91.5/100 Calibration Notes: The VT25 was difficult to calibrate and get balanced and obtain a pure D6500K color measurement.
Pros: Black levels are like ink on the screen. Color reproduction is almost perfect. Lots of adjustments. Hardly any ghosting in 3d mode. Can sit at almost any angle for 3d. Comes with one pair of glasses. THX modes makes for easy calibration.
Cons: Comes with only one pair of glasses. Glasses are not the most comfortable. Wii does not look great would like the tv to support more video and music formats. i.e. (.wmv.avi .mpg4 .wkm .acc) No 3d button on remote
