Review Summary

When a person buys a plasma TV, he or she expects it to perform in an exemplary level when it comes to rendering colors and details, especially the color black. Deeper blacks have always been the advantage that plasma television sets hold over LCD TVs.

One of Panasonic’s new releases into the market of plasma TVs, the Panasonic TH-50PX77U, tries to do just that. As expected from a plasma television set, this 50-inch flat-panel HD TV delivers some of the deepest blacks in TV sets available in the market today. Just as great is the way it handles detail, which remains sharp and clear even in dark spots and in shadows. The way the Panasonic TH-50PX77U handles colors is commendable as well. Colors almost literally pop beautifully from the screen. Though it has only a resolution of 720p, the Panasonic TH-50PX77U can scale to fit any pixel input quite well.

With regards aesthetics, the Panasonic TH-50PX77U is pretty enough to be displayed in any room when turned off. It sports the standard glossy black bezel with a dark gray swatch curving gently at the bottom. In addition, its screen has an anti-glare coating, something that is not usually found in LCD TV screens. It goes great with the décor wherever it is placed.

But of course the Panasonic TH-50PX77U is not a perfect model. It has its own small flaws. For one, it does handle the color green with a little inaccuracy, making it look a bit too faded. The Panasonic TH-50PX77U also tends toward false contouring, and in some instances it can display small, blurry blobs. The latter can be fixed with tweaking.

The Panasonic TH-50PX77U also does not have a CableCard slot or a picture-in-picture feature. It has a decent connectivity suite with two HDMI inputs, but it does not have a dedicated VGA input to allow for hooking up with the computer.

The Panasonic TH-50PX77U is worth giving a try if you are looking for a decent plasma TV.
