Panasonic TC-P55VT50


In a year when the first two big-screen OLED TVs are hitting the market and the best LCD to date will likely have an even better successor, Panasonic's VT50 plasma still has the best flat-panel picture you can buy -- for now. Even if one of those...

The Panasonic TC-PVT50 series produces some of the best pictures ever, with exceedingly deep black levels, highly accurate color, and perfect screen uniformity and off-angle performance. It can get brighter than competing plasmas and performs better in...

The VT50 isn't as strong in terms of value as Panasonic's excellent midtier plasmas. It uses more power than competing LCD TVs, and doesn't perform as well in bright rooms as those with matte screens. It doesn't come with 3D glasses and its 3D picture...

The Panasonic TC-PVT50 series represents the pinnacle of current flat-panel TV picture quality.

Panasonic TC-P55VT50 Review – 55-inch Plasma HDTV

Panasonic TC-P55VT50


With technology ever improving, it's senseless to spend your hard-earned entertainment budget on a 3D television that is already trumped by a more advanced option. Invest in a top-of-the-line 3D machine. We recommend the Panasonic TC-P55VT50 because it...

A brilliant picture and a 600Hz refresh rate make this TV a solid competitor, even by 2D standards

Only one pair of active 3D glasses is included with this television

This TV will not disappoint even the most 3D-skeptical consumers.

Panasonic TX-P55VT50 TV review


Despite Panasonic revealing a new-found enthusiasm for LED this year, most serious video enthusiasts will still be carrying a torch for the brand's new plasma TVs, particularly the flagship VT50 series auditioned here.

Sensational picture quality in 2D and 3D mode; excellent build quality and design

It’s pretty expensive; pictures aren’t as bright in light conditions as LED TVs

Panasonic TX-P55VT50


Exclusive: It's big, beautiful and brilliant. Say hello to Panasonic's new flagship 55in TV.

Sensational 2D and 3D pictures ; Gorgeous design ; Mostly good online system

Pictures not especially bright, especially with 3D ; Panasonic's own ST50 series offers stiff competition ; Touchpad remote is flawed

"Worst company to buy from."


I can understand if this was a video game score which is constantly on the screen or something like that, but this was from under an hour of watching one basketball game. I know this specifically, because it's the other teams score that is so...

Great picture.

After 6 months of normal watching, I was watching the my first basketball game of the season and the score burned in They would not stand behind their product.

"NICE Plasma. The key word is NICE."


I have a 42" HP 720p plasma from 2006, and wanted to step up. Late 2012 I read all the reviews for this TV. Not wanting to spend the $ for this one initially, I went with the GT50. I was not impressed at all with the GT, so when I returned the GT. My...

NICE blacks, NICE color.

So much hype by almost all expert reviewers, just can't see whats so great, but NICE. Too cinema smooth for my liking, need more sharpness and detail. C/nets rec settings were used when I had this set in my dark living room.

"Panasonic Poor Quality"


Steer away from Panasonic Tv's. I purchased the Viera and it died after only 13 Months. Panasonic said they would do absolutely nothing. After paying $2300 for the set, one would think the mfg would stand behind their product. If you go ahead with your...

Good Picture While It Lasts

"Reliability Risk"


I have purchased two Panasonic plasma's in the last 36 months. The predecessor to this model. The pictures were great, I was happy with the final price and the initial performance of the product. Both plasma's have failed in the last four months. I...

Awesome Picture, competitive pricing, Ok sound

Questionable Reliability
