Summary: The quality has been great and it saddens me that Panasonic is getting out of the plasma business let alone that plasma as a TV tech appears to be on it's way out... There are a couple issues I have, first, they really should have included at least one pair of 3D glasses preferable 2, I haven't utilized this aspect due to this... The second issue has more to do with the software market place and limits that are in place regarding media playback...
Summary: One year later this TV is having picture and software issues. Panasonic warranty is garbage and they are not willing to help even though it's a $3500 TV. Panasonic will never receive my money again.
Summary: Have owned a 50 Pioneer Kuro for a few years. That is the best set (picture) I think that will ever be made. But, I wanted a bigger set. This uses Pioneer technology, and does not disappoint. I'm happy with the picture and the set overall. Would purchase again. I wanted a Plasma set before they possibly disappear.
Summary: I'm in the movie biz. I know picture quality. I obsess about it and live for it and need to deal with it in everything I do for my work in post production. We are always after the best quality picture. This TV beats them all. Now Panasonic has the new models out on this line and I hear they are even better. So why question it. If you want to save money I'm sure this 2012 model is still available and at a discount. How much better are the new ones?
Summary: I purchard my 65VT50 4 months ago and the picture is fabulous. We do watch the news alot and we started to notice the CNN logo and the lines appear on any light screen colors. I called Panasonic and they told me that burn in is not covered under warrantly. Now I am stuck with a below par TV! Suggestions?
Summary: After owning the Pioneer Kuro for about 4 yrs, I've hesitated to purchase a plasma for fear of disappointment. While the VT50 doesn't quite match the Kuro's black levels or anti-reflective properties, it does not disappoint.
Summary: I chose this TV based on all the 3rd party ratings...and believe me, I did my homework on this purchase. They were right. It's a great TV. Amazing colors and clarity. Packaging was great and protected the TV during shipping/handling. Only 2 issues to mention is the "advertisements" on the bottom on the screen when the TV boots up. They disappear quickly but I don't want them there at all. Probably a setting I can change to get rid of them??
Summary: For the price, the picture quality, and the features...this TV is an incredible masterpiece. Although just missing the Pioneer Kuro in picture quality, you'll see that it comes quite close, just read the professional reviews out there. 3D looks amazing, Blu Rays look just as incredible, and HD programs are just as crisp depending on the signal being broadcast from your cable provider. Very impressed with this plasma so far.
Summary: I went from a 27" CRT to this and WOW! I am so happy with this TV. It works great with my Marantz home theater receiver. I have yet to find a review that says this wasn't the best TV of 2012. I am happy to echo those sentiments.
