Summary: Bought from Amazon in 2007. Funny story, Amazon sent me a patio set the first time instead... Hey - I ordered a TV - where's my TV, here's the receipt... I guess you had to be there... I doubt that happens too often anymore. Once we got that cleared up, I got the TV a couple of days later and this plasma has been a great - still going strong.
Summary: This 50" plasma was a huge splurge for us back in January 2008; it replaced a still running 37" LCD. I read the great reviews for Panasonic plasma sets and decided this was the best bang for the buck. A media computer and digital cable box supply 720/1080 video via HDMI. Even though the set is limited to 720P we see minimal differences from newer 1080P sets. We have to draw the curtain to avoid glare but this is true for most sets.
Summary: Long, sad story about a very disappointing experience with a defective 50-inch Panasonic Viera TH-50PX75U tv. Issues and requests for fair and reasonable assistance went all the way to the CEO of Panasonic North America... but what little they did offer was woefully too little, and would require in excess of $600 out of pocket for me to "enjoy' another Panasonic product - one that after this terrible, unpleasant experience I would never trust any sort of quality.
Summary: Purchased this TV three years ago. Now getting red static on a consistent basis regardless of input source (cable, xbox, etc). Repairs are out of warranty and will run about $600. Sending this one to the recycle gods.
Summary: We did a lot of shopping around, and this was the best deal on a 50 inch tv. But not only was it a great price, it showed up as promised, in perfect condition, and it looks great! Excellent picture quality.
Great TV but now $100 more expensive than a year ago?

Summary: Nice TV and great picture. Its a shame it doesn't have a PC connector I could do with one of these now so I wouldn't buy this model again for that. However I have had no problems with it and the picture is excellent. I find it odd it is $100 more expensive in Jan 2009 than when I bought it in March 2008. Very odd.
Summary: I was going to get the 42 Pana VIERA during the sale but it was sold out so I scrolled down a little and saw this 2000 plasma for 700 off. Since Ive hooked up HD I must say my family still oos and aahs. I have always had good experience with anything Panasonic but this is beyond that. Amazing TV and the sound is also much stronger and clearer that I had thought it could be. If there is a difference with 1080, I couldnt see it. You cannot go wrong with this unit.
Summary: I have had 2 Panasonic Plasma TV's and I can't be happier with them. One of them just quit on me this week, and so I went to shop around. The basic reason is that we lived for three years on the beachfront and the sea breeze got to it. So I went out shopping for another TV. Looked at LCD and Plasma, but LCD have been having more technical problems lately, also their level of black is never quite the same, plus there are serious issues when watching sports or any film...
Summary: The performance of this HDTV has been flawless. I chose to not get a 1080p set to save a little money, and this set has proven my decision right. I base that on the observation that at 9 feet away, where I sit, I cannot see the individual pixels. In fact, I have to be less than 4 feet to see them on this 50" screen. Be prepared, though, if you're new to HDTV sets. While your old analog set had almost nothing to adjust, these HD sets have many adjustments and settings.
