Great Picture! The Sound is Warbly during solid-colored screen transitions.
3 August 2010
Summary: I tried resolving this [sound] issue with Panasonic to no avail. From researching and trouble-shooting to actually chatting (during their business hours), I tried it all. There are many references to this issue online; look it up first! I've heard of a mysterious update or fix, but so far it's mostly legendary. I doubt I will go down this street again when it comes to a big money ticket item.
Summary: This plasma is beautiful. It seems very resistant (though I can't guarantee immune) to Image Retention. Go through a 100 hour break-in of the TV. Keep the picture on normal and make sure you always Zoomed using the Aspect button. Do not use the 'vivid' picture setting for at least 20 hours, don't leave movies paused without turning off the TV.
Summary: Television is awesome. The picture is unbelievably crystal clear and the sound is crisp. Watching movies or tv now is like sitting in a movie theatre. Now the only problem is getting the kids away from it.
Summary: What more can I say? Everything from the ordering, shipping, to the end product was a great experience. I did a bit of research before making such a large purchase, and it was worth every minute.
Summary: I purchased the Panasonic TH-50PZ750U Plasma television after doing exhaustive research using Consumer Reports, CNET, Amazon.com reviews, etc., and by staring at and comparing TV's at Best Buy, Sears, Tiger Direct, Fry's, etc. This is by far the best picture I have ever seen on any TV. I don't care what anyone says, plasma beats LCD by a mile. Everyone who has seen my new TV wants one for themselves.
Summary: There is a good reason Panasonic HDTV are rated highest by the leading consumer magazine. This set, out of the box, is incredible. Easy to set up and we have not had to do any calibration. Picture is clear and crisp; true blacks; no distortion. Sound is so great we are delaying the purchase of a surround system. Great price; shippping right on time.
Summary: This is a wonderful addition to our family room We've had so many people over, for the Super Bowl, for example, and have a great time watching movies and documentaries. It has added panache even to the election process. Thanks for a great product. It is everything we hoped it would be.
Summary: I could not find this TV locally for a good price. I paid over a $1000 less on Amazon compared to what Best Buy - Magnolia Room is charging for the same HDTV. This is my second Panasonic plasma HDTV (my other is a 42"). The styling is much better than previous models. I have not had the television professionally calibrated yet, but the picture and sound is outstanding. I highly recommend this HDTV over the even more expensive Pioeneer Elite.
Summary: Unless someone has extra $1500 to spend on pioneer, this is the second best TV. After researching for months, i came down to pioneer and panasonic 1080p TVs. And based on price, i choose panasonic. After setup, when first started it, i was sure about good picture quality, but completely blown away by terrific speaker sound. Right now i am just watching non-HD channels and standard DVD with Oppo DVD player.
