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.
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.
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.
Summary: Update (after 7 months of use): have had the TV for many months and love it. Great picture quality. Update: I had ordered a replacement from Amazon, and it arrived yesterday (01/31/2011); It was easy to set up, and the picture quality looks awesome.
Summary: I purchased the Panasonic TCP50VT25 to hang over the fireplace. I researched all types (LCD, LED, Plasma) and found this particular model/type had the highest reviews. I decided to see for myself and was blown away from the picture clarity and detail.
Summary: This Panasonic is the first incorporating Pioneer's KURO technology. This tech was sold to Panasonic when Pioneer decided to get out of the flat panel business after 2009. Pioneer made only plasmas but they were, and are still regarded as the best TV period!
Summary: I have owned 2 Panasonic plasmas over the last 8 years. The first was a 42 inch monitor (before plasma TVs were available, fed signal from VHS), the second a 42 inch high def TV I purchased about 4-5 years ago.
Summary: I've had this TV for over a week now and I am very pleased with it. The picture quality for HD material is probably the best I've seen. There is great depth and dimensionality to HD viewing - likely from the excellent black levels and detail.
Amazing 3D image but glasses could be designed better
12 January 2011
Summary: Purchased this as a bundle (with Panasonic DMP-BDT100 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player) and Avatar 3D looks amazing; the depth--especially background depth--is much greater that what I have seen at the movie theater.
Summary: Pros: Anti-Glare Screen, Deep Black Colors, Plasma Picture Quality, Good Angle Viewing, THX Certification, Internet Functionality, 3D, Lots of HDMI Inputs Cons: Expensive 3D Glasses Required, Flat Screen Sound, Bad SD Picture Nothing very negative to say about this beauty.
