Summary: After 3 months working fine the screen developed a yellow/blue stripe. To get this rectified by seller KM Essentials was a nightmare. Buck-passing and misinformation seems to sum it up. Amazon could not help with a refund or replacement.
Summary: This is a fabulous TV. I do love it. Already. And I haven't even seen the 3D. The reason I am writing this review, tho, is that some, like me, might also want to use it to display images from their PC.
Summary: Bought this as an upgrade to my 42 inch Panasonic plasma, which for picture quality,entertainment and enjoyment has been outstanding. I've waited and waited to get this model (rather than the 50VT30B which differs only by the sound system and some EPG functionality)until the deal via Amazon was too...
Summary: If this is your first plasma, please visit a showroom with sound proof room or a friend who owns this TV. I am not going to add anything about the picture quality other than what others have said. It is fantastic and 3D is really superb. But the fan noise is a big let down.
Flickering is a Design Failing - A deal breaker for some
8 August 2011
Summary: One star really? Well yes, because this TV excludes a significant percentage of the population from ever enjoying Panasonics much praised TV. The reason is flickering, which I think another reviwer calls fluctuating brightness.
Summary: You should be aware this set suffers from fluctating brightness which is very, very annoying. Try watching the boardroom scenes in the apprentice ! Panasonic UK described this as a feature and were very unhelpfull. They advised to send set back for a full refund as they could not / would not help.
Summary: Straight away let me say I didn't buy this from Amazon as they wasn't extending the 5yr warranty offered by Panasonic until June 30th but given Amazon's reputation I would have had they done so.
Summary: Ho acquistato questi televisore al plasma 3 o 4 anni fa ma solo ora ho deciso di recensioni, parliamo di un 50 pollici a tecnologia plasma,so avete capito bene, plasma, voi direte e perché non led???
Summary: Mein Vater wollte absolut keinen Plasma-TV. Er hatte zu viele negative Aspekte drüber gelesen. Ich konnte ihn aber überzeugen dass Plasma genau das richtige ist, und so sind wir auf den Panasonic gestoßen. Das Wichtigste wurde ja schon geschrieben. Bild ist wirklich gestochen scharf.
