They did not have any info on G10, G15, or V10 models larger than 50", The TC-P50V10 that I ordered supposed to be available for pick-up on 5/29.

I sure hope the V10 I ordered gets great reviews.

Anyone thinking that the V10 may match the performance of the Panasonic VX100?

That's one sexy looking panel. I hope it looks this good for real.

Before taxes:
50 g10: 1308.66
50 g15: 1316.67
50 v10: 1499.59

Owning Warren's tock pays off again!

I just looked over on their site and the 50V10 is not listed. Do you have to call them?

Isn't that a photo of the Z1 ? I did not think the surrounding bezel was so thin on the V10's.


Never mind... It does appear to be the V10. And now I understand what is meant by the "single pane of glass". There is still a fairly wide frame but it is made of glass instead of a typical plastic surround. If you look closely at the photo, it is obvious where the picture ends and it looks to still be an inch or more inside of the outer edge. It does look pretty sharp but gimicky all the same.

Unfortunately I think you need to be in the store to make the purchase. Plus you would need the Berkshire tag, which I would gladly share , heck 2 friends got the Yamaha rx-v765 for 408 pre tax using my tag.

So does this have a silver trim at the bottom?
I own the 50 800U. I love the aesthetics of this set.
From the pics posted, it appears that the only thing that has changed is the silver trim (at the bottom). Can someone confirm this

I guess its fair to assume that the black levels will be better on the
V10s versus the 800U.
Although I am very satisfied with the 800U, I tend to get distracted while watching letter boxed content on the 800U (in a dark room). The blacks are never as deep as the bezel.
Can we expect the V10s to be better in this area?
Also, will we be able to adjust the black levels a little more using the pro settings on the V10?

Yea, my first post, but I've been lurking and waiting for the v10 quietly. I almost got the g10, but once I saw the 24p wasn't usuable really, I decided to wait longer. I was getting impatient for the release, as everyone is, and I wrote to Panasonic just to get some sort of confirmation of release date. I always assumed from Cnet's posting it was June. I got this short e-mail response from Panasonic.

Thank you for your inquiry!

Panasonic values you as a loyal customer.

The release date for the v10 series is set for late June of this year.

Unfortunately, a more exact date is not available.

You may check back with Panasonic periodically for updates on this matter.

Thank you for your interest in Panasonic products.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer Support


Sooo...that's about it I wish it was sooner, I was really hoping for May, but oh well. It gives me time to secure more cash. And I don't know if I am quite ready to part with my 27 inch tube RCA I'm just glad the TV is still bright after nearly 10years, lol.

That is a bit disapointing, I was expecting late May as I have already pre-ordered. Although, I will wait patiently as I am locked in on a price for the TC-P50V10 that I do not expect to be beat for quite some time.

Only the 50V10 (per Press Release) was expected to be released in May.

I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that reply, as the answer varies depending on who you talk to at Panasonic and when. The 50" V-10 has always had a different launch date than the rest of the line. I fully expect the 50" V-10 to be available by the end of this month. Panasonic has been on time on every phase of the new 09 lineup, and I expect no difference now.

Indeed, I still expect the 50 V in late May.

We still don't have any confirmed month for the 54+ V series, still just Summer. If it would indeed be late June, that would be ok, considering that is just the beginning of Summer.

Ill be ecstatic if it still comes end of this month, right by my Bday! But for now I just bought a couple new toys and shipped them overnight. My internet connection just went from 54kbps to 300mbps! I am finding things to DL just to DL them!

I'll probably have to buy a few more toys to keep me occupied until the darn v10 becomes available. I still am not sure if I want the 54 or 50 honestly! I think 50 is beautiful, but if I spend that much money, might as well dump a few more hundred and get the 54! I sure am spending a bundle on the darn mount! Just over 275dollars.

OmniMount UCL-XB Dual Arm Cantilever Mount (fits 42 - 63" flat panels)

It seems to be the most versatile mount, as I will be mounting it above a fireplace, and want full options depending where I am.

Good article to read about mounts, read through the comments as well. You might be suprised at the responses.

Anyone else find this review somewhat underwhelming? Hopefully US reviews are better with some comparisons against Kuro, since that is what EVERYONE really wants to know. At least they fixed the 24p issue....and I will probably still buy it

The UK version doesn't have the "Advanced Picture Settings". A big disappointment !!!

I'm looking to purchase a 65" Panasonic plasma.

I can wait a few months, if necessary.

Will the V10 line include a new 65" model?

It was a good review to read in my opinion- I think it validated some concerns that people have, most notably the lack of calibration controls. I understand the US version will have additional ones, but then the question becomes: How effective will these additional calibration controls be? Will they be adequate to bring the Cinema mode close to that THX mode in terms of performance? I wonder why Panasonic elects to include fewer controls in their displays compared to the rest of the market...

I also wonder if the THX mode in the V10's is similar to that in the G10, which CNET thought was a little dark for their preference.

Either way, I am really looking forward to the release of this display/series. I also look forward to the comparisons to other Panasonic panels and other displays out there, as I'm going to be purchasing one in August. Right now, I'm thinking it'll be the Panasonic if all goes well

Counting down the days...

Lots of questions to be answered upon release later this month.

I agree it was a decent review, I do wish the UK manual was available on the UK Panny site (I have searched, it is missing from the down box). I would like to compare the differences between the U.S. and UK models.
