Summary: This is the first Panasonic TV I have ever owned. After this experience, I will seek out Panasonic for future purchases, and I would order through Amazon again. Several months ago (Jan. 2010), I spent more time than anyone should researching which model should be my first flat panel TV - yes, I was the last person in America to buy a flat panel (I had a rare Sony tube with impeccable HD picture quality).
Summary: Clear clean picture..and you don't have to worry about burn...because if you leave it on they have an icon that moves similar to a computer...very happy with the design, picure...sound pretty good..could be improved a bit....
Summary: I searched for several months before settling on this unit. I watch a lot of fast action sports, and in this respect the Plasma unit really shows it's value. There is very little blur to the picture when watching high speed events like motorsports. Of course, the movie experience is excellent, too. I have not tried the 3D feature yet, so I can't review that feature.
Summary: I have had this TV for over 3 months and my family and I love it. I haven't experienced 3D yet, but 2D with Blu-ray is incredible. I also use it to listen to Pandora music online through my home theatre system. If you can a great deal on this TV don't hesitate in buying it. You won't be sorry.
Summary: Can't speak of the 3d yet because I have not tried it. This tv is great. Within a few minutes after the unpack, I plugged in the wireless dongle in the USB and BOOM! Instant Viera Cast and Netflix 1080P movies and tv shows. So awesome. Xbox 360 looks unbelievable, I can only imagine when I hook up Blue Rays. So awesome.
Summary: Panasonic developed the Plasma TV in the beginning so it makes sense that this TV is the latest in Plasmas with "new" fast response phospors (pixels). Every review I have read about Plasmas complains about image retention. I will address that first. Image retention is not the same as image burn in. Now to understand this phenomenon, stare at a light source for 20 seconds, then close your eyes. For several seconds you will still see the image in front of you.
Summary: This is my first HDTV. I bought it from reading the reviews. The TV is great, love the picture and settings available. Plasma is where it is at. I paid extra for the network connection as I wanted as much integration as possible. However, when comparing the streaming with my old streaming box, the Panasonic really falls flat. While streaming from Netflix, the picture is beautiful but jerky.
Summary: This TV arrived in good condition, was exactly as advertised, and was easy to set up for use. I have not yet activated the 3D feature but the regular picture quality is excellent. We are well pleased with this purchase.
Summary: We are very impressed with this TV. What we like: -> The 2D picture quality is fabulous. BlueRays, DVDs, Netflix and Cable all look real good. We're not experts but do know a good picture when we see it. -> The sleek black minimalist frame looks great on the wall. -> We use an A/V receiver so the lack of great speakers or 4+ HDMI inputs is not a concern... we bought this for the picture. -> Lots of picture tweaks so we can set it up so it looks good to us...
Summary: The TC-P50GT25 available for $1K these days is a no-brainer. LCD sets whether flourescent or LED just can't produce the depth, contrast, and black levels of a well designed plasma like this one. Great press and reviews on the top end TC-P50VT25, but not $[...] worth of extras in my book. I've seen both sets first hand.
