Summary: I found a no-cost solution to my glare problem. It was removed from the t.v. stand and now sits on the floor. The glare is not 100% gone, but it is greatly reduced. Now I can watch t.v. during the day instead of only at night.
Pros: Read previous post. Extra thoughts-Panasonic plasma Consierge service. Lots of extras on this model. Fast service by Newegg. Beautiful sleek and stylish Panasonic Model.
Summary: I love it so far. I wish all the channels are HD and they are not so expensive. HD picture quality is simply amazing. I am using a indoor HD antenna from Trek So only local channels are in HD.
Pros: I was debating to buy TH50PX60U but it was becoming expensive than TH50PX600U (which is higher end) in local stores. So I bought from newegg. I am happy with the packaging and understood the problem with returning bulky items before purchasing. HD Picture Quality, Standard DVDs look great on a pr...
Cons: Glare - The TV on this screen does not have a anti glare So It is annoying when I watch the TV during day with windows open. High price and availability of HD programming.
Summary: First off as a background, I view HD programs on this TV from a FIOS subscription. I also watch blu-ray movies and play games using PS3. It has only been 10 months and the price of this TV (TH-50PX600U) has dropped to more than half.
Summary: This is a good 720p TV for a good price. However, I found the black levels could be a little better. It also gives off a lot of heat. I have a Sumsung 1080P and when hooked up to my Toshiba HD-A20 1080p DVD player produces a better picture than this TV.
Summary: Just got this 50" Panny on Father's Day. It was a terrific Father's Day gift to myself. I was torn between this 1080i plasma and the new 1080p, but the new models cost twice as much and there is no 1080p programming, unless you have a blue ray or HD dvd player.
Summary: I had been thinking about buying a plasma for some time. I had concluded based on reading various reviews that this was the best value for the money. Almost all the review were positive. I was delaying because I had a 35" CRT. Then the CRT broke. So I bit the bullet.
Pros: HD picture is great. Standard DVDs look great, especially if you have a progressive scan DVD player and can output 480p. Standard definition digital off of Dish Network is acceptable. It's a least as good as my old CRT TV.
Cons: One major drawback concerns the closed captioning. Hence the four rating. Closed captioning works correctly in only one of the various display modes, an aspect ratio referred to in the user's manual as FULL. In any other aspect ratio, characters are cut off.
Summary: The picture and sound are outstanding. The cable card does not work, after three attempts by my cable company and a firmware update sent from the company Panasonic has established a case # for me and will arrange for a repair person to come to my home.
