Summary: I bought this TV after sending back a LG LED tv(LM660T) which i wasnt happy with. This had a TV OF THE YEAR award and I heard plasma's where the best for motion and I watch a hell of a lot of sports so I went for it. A few months later and I haven't got any faults... Im still amazed by the picture quality and its still the best TV I've ever seen. It looks absolutely awesome too.
Summary: Title says it all! I have had a number of Panasonic Plasma's over the years and they keep getting better. I have run this for nearly 200 hours and the picture is the business! Gaming and HD images are stunning, Blu Rays in THX mode are impressive. Infact, what ever you are watching this TV makes the best of everything. 3D is excellent when watching stereoscopic inputs but the 3D conversion isn't all that. Out of the box the picture is good but trust me, it gets better.
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. I use it in my work, as it is a convenient way to display images and information for my clients to view. I have an older model Viera, 37", and when I hooked my PC up to it via HDMI, no problem. The computer display was replicated on the TV automatically.
Summary: I recently purchased this TX-P50ST50B smart viera 50 inch plasma tv and its the best tv i have ever seen!(far better than any LG or SAMSUNG model)I paid £1100 but it was worth it as i had a free 5 year panasonic warranty with the tv purchased..i tried the 3D first to see how clear and sharp the picture is and it was awsome!!-i used my PS3 to play my 3D movie but i intend to get myself a panasonic 3D bluray player.
Summary: Out of the box, very disappointing picture. However ran it in and wow. This set comes into its own for films, especially in the dark with wonderful blacks. Got `best buy' from France USA and UK. I do not have the mentioned noise or fluctuating brightness problems of others. I was worried about the reported green tinge, but it doesn't have that either. You must take the time to set the picture to the source, i.e. blue ray player picture to THX; TV to `normal'or ???
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 good to miss. TV, 3D Blu-ray player, glasses (2)for £1100. Bargain! I'll list the issue first. Not Amazons fault, but the carrier was xxap. Lost (!
Summary: First things first, this TV is stunning. I have only had it set up for a day so far, and it is a beauty. Picture, although not completely tweaked is very good on SD, and on HD it's crisp and clear. I understand that Plasma's need at least 100 hours or so to completely settle in and also to reduce the so called 'burn in' affect. So my contrast and brightness are turned down somewhat, but this hasn't reduced the quality by much at all.
The best 50" Plasma on the market for the the price.

Summary: I'm going to keep this review quite short because I cannot stop watching/playing/messing around with my fantastic TV. The Good. The picture is everything that you would expect and more. It does not disappoint in any way. The blacks are black! The sound is fine, but if like me you have a 7.1 surround sound powered though an AV amp, then it will sound and look amazing! The PS3 looks stunning! The Wii looks great. Split screen is actually playable!!! The Bad.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this TV. I also read the reviews on here which didn't really help. I love the TV but have only given it 4 stars as the manual isn't that clear and I'm not a techie! Having said that, the picture quality is excellent, the sound good and it looks great. I'll change the review to a 5 I think.
Summary: I spent a long time researching TVs this year (as I do most years) - last year I had a P42G20, itself a good TV. Having read through various forums and their numerous threads as well as viewing nearly all the current £1000+ TVs in various shops (I am sure most of you know that the picture quality in retail outlets is not what you will see at home - the first question on the menu is if for home viewing or shop - make sure you press the home option!
