Conclusion: Plasma has always been our choice of display tech. But now, Panasonic has managed to weed out most of the little quirks that made the technology less appealing. Here, we have an ultra-sharp TV that does 3D brilliantly, has an incredible 2D picture and doesn't disgrace itself in the audio stakes either. While the P50VT50 - like most of Panasonic's TVs - isn't brilliant in the online stakes, we don't find oursevles consumed with concern over that.
Pros: Amazing sharpness, very bright, superb 2D and 3D image quality, amazing styling, plenty of inputs, both freesat HD and Freeview HD tuners
Cons: Some picture artifacts on moving objects, 3D glasses still a bit to heavy
Pros: Intense black, No motion blur, Peerless 2D and 3D Blu-ray, Viera Connect interface, Picture quality - loved it - the THX Cinema preset worked wonders with everything we threw at it amid some startling contrast and awesome upscaling. Despite fluid, naturally coloured 2D and 3D images, inky blacks and detail throughout, perhaps what's most impressive is that this plasma's obsession with perfection isn't at the cost of versatility; it handles poor quality sources of vide...
Cons: Dated TV user interface, Limited digital file support, Touchpad feels first-gen, If we had to nit-pick, we'd say that this plasma is not as bright as an LCD TV, though that's only likely to be noticeable in a brightly-lit shop environment. Far more of an issue is a poor Freeview EPG that lacks even a live TV thumbnail, let alone audio, the rather old-fashioned core user interface, and the lack of MKV support while networking. The touchpad controller is a matter of tas...
Excerpt: As soon as we lifted the monolithic VT50 out of its box, it was clear that the company has gone out of its way to impress. Its minimalist black bezel with contrasting silver trim is a huge upgrade from previous models and gives the TV a stunning yet simple appearance. The panel itself is covered by anti-reflective treated glass that Panasonic calls Infinite Black Ultra. It does a fantastic job of reducing light reflections, even in a brightly lit room.
Conclusion: Heimkino-Fans, die Wert auf ein optimales Bild legen, sind mit diesem Premium-Plasma von Panasonic sehr gut beraten. Der TX-P50VT50E überzeugt im Test mit einer exzellenten Bildqualität in 2D und in 3D ohne störende Bildfehler. Auch die Ausstattung mit tollen Online- und Netzwerkfeatures, vielen Tunern und Schnittstellen sowie USB-Recording ist Spitze.
Pros: Quasi kein Crosstalk im 3D-Betrieb, Tolles Bild in 2D, Schöne Ausstattung, Zwei Shutter-Brillen dabei
Cons: Schwacher Ton, Vergleichsweise hoher Stromverbrauch
