I'm in the market for a 50" 1080p plasma. What do you recommend?

I just started research yesterday and stopped by Ultimate Electronics and Best Buy to see some. They primarily have Panasonic and Samsung. BB had an LG, but at $1500 clearance, that is $600 more than the Pany or Samsung. I gather that Panys are almost 1/2 as power hungry as LG, but LG is better quality (3 million v. 2 million contrast ratio) although I didn't really get a chance to compare any LGs in person. Panys are the most reliable according to Consumer Reports. The salemen say Pany is better than Samsung, but I want your opinions.

Right now my top choice is the Panasonic TC-P50S2.
2nd choice: LG 50PK550

My opinion is to go with the Panasonic G25 50" if you can afford it. For a budget 50" 1080p midrange set 50" S2 all the way.

No highs, no lows, must be Blose!

Sammy PN50C550 I would look again at that model for the budget. Its hard sometimes to know if the salesperson knows what they talking about. I can tell you this model I got good feedback on.

It's only $120 more than the S2...

At quick glance I notice 5 million/infinite v. 2 million contrast, THX, and PC/ethernet inputs all of which I care about. Anything I missed?

Just off the top of my head the G20/G25 also has one less pane of glass, a more effective Kuro-like AR Filter that's bonded directly to the plasma panel, and more extensive "Pro" picture settings for Custom mode.

The G20/G25 is a big step up in features and performance and is definitely worth spending a little more over an S2.

I really like the G25 features to handle bright rooms as I have one window opposite the TV face and on the west wall to the side of the TV, 2 very large windows (48" x 48") down to knee level plus a fairly large horizontal window just above one of those near the vaulted ceiling directly next to and behind the TV area over the stairs. My viewing room is a large combined living/dining/kitchen separated by bar area. There are also 2 smaller kitchen windows.

What's the difference between the G25 and G20?

Edit - it just hit me that you probably meant to type G20... in which case they're the same exact TV but the G25 adds the ability to connect some sort of Panasonic network camera, and the cabinet might be a different shade of black.

Typo - G20. I thought it was an older model since I didn't see it on Pany's web site at first. Their site is too cluttered - wish I could narrow it down to a range of sizes so I'd only be looking at less than 10 TVs at once.

Well I don't care about the camera. If the G20 is cheaper, that's better.

Well the 50G20 came out first - it was an exclusive Best Buy model, followed by the 54G20 which was an exclusive Sears model. That first month or two these two TVs were only available in-store or through BB or Sears websites - they weren't sold by anyone else or anyone online. Then they were followed by the G25 series which is more widely distributed by higher end AV stores and lots of online vendors. The G25 is available in 42", 46", 50" and 54" sizes (G20 is only 50" and 54"). Recently Costco online started selling the 54G20 as well.

Well since the G20 is an exclusive model, the prices are usually higher than you can get the G25 version for from online sellers. The last time i checked Amazon they were selling the 50G25 for $200 cheaper than the 50G20 at Best Buy.

I couldn't even find the G20 on Amazon.

So with the bright room handling features, ethernet & PC connections, G25/20 is my choice unless there are anything comparable from Samsung or LG.

Do you think there will be any significant discounts on Black Friday? When I tried to turn on my old Sony 34XBR800 for the F1 race Sunday morning it failed so I figured the power supply died. $2200 for an HDTV that only lasted 7.5 years = $300/year! It was too much trouble to move one of my 27" tubes from the bedrooms down to my living room temporarily, but I was able to hook up a spare 20" to my Comcast DVR via it's only input - coax. It's pretty painful with some bad color distortion too. I really wanted a replacement flat screen that same day, but had to do research that I haven't done since 2003. I'm still looking at a week out for online order and if I wait until BF and still end up buying online, that's 3 more weeks from now.

This is an old thread, but since my 34" Sony CRT may be on the fritz again and it's almost 10 years old, I'm researching 50"+ plasmas again and want to know what are the current recommended sets.

There's still a few Plasmas being made . . . . .

50" Panasonic TC-P50S60, TC-P50S64, TC-P50ST60

51" Samsung PN51F5300, PN51F5500, PN51F8500

55" Panasonic S60, ST60, VT60 series

60" Panasonic S60, ST60, VT60, ZT60, and Samsung PN60F5300, PN60F5500, PN60F8500

64" Samsung F5300, F5500, F8500

65" Panasonic S60, S64, ST60, VT60, or ZT60

I think LG still makes a few Plasmas too wink.gif

Is there a current successor to the Panny G25?

Randy - are there any you recommend out of that big list?

Go with the panasonic 50st60. Its a phenominal tv, especially for the price. Its not the direct successor to the G25, but its waaayyy better than it in every aspect.

What about 55", 60", and larger? Is the ST series the best performance/price line to go with?

If you might wait on the S64 models if you don't care about 3D. That's the cosco/sams version of the S60 series with an anti-glare filter. IMO, if its not a bright room its hard to beat the $699 p50s60.

It's a bright room, so I'd probably want the S64 with the anti-glare filter. Any idea how soon to expect the S64?

My old 1080i 34" Sony CRT still blows away any Plasma or LED in terms of clarity and no motion artifacts, but it's been turning off on it's own lately with an occasional red screen just before shutting off. When I first started this thread 2.5 years ago, it suddenly died on me, but I found out through the forums here that I could fix it just by replacing a $2 fuse. I'm not sure it's a similar problem with easy fix this time around (have to search through 1675 posts to find out), but it seems to be getting progressively worse, so I need to start shopping for a plasma to be prepared to make a purchase if it suddenly dies and is not easily repairable...

Found out my Sony CRT is suffering from IC failure, so may die soon or limp along for a while, but is almost 10 years old, so I'm definitely in the market for a plasma replacement.

What do you guys think of (prices from Consumer Reports):
LG 60PA6500? 60" for only $900!

LG 50PA6500? 50" for $600
Samsung PN51E530? 51" for $650
Panasonic Viera TC-P50S60 for $700 (has WiFi and can be controlled by Android)

I care about picture quality, don't need or really want 3D (I already wear glasses and don't want to wear another set on top, plus no content that I've seen), don't need built-in Internet subscription features (in fact I'm trying again to build my own DVR with Silicon Dust network dual tuner to replace the Comcast Motorola and maybe even drop cable as well as possibly stream content over my Cat 5 network to my PC's 24" LED in a bedroom office). Probably the only extra feature I'd like would be PIP and/or split screen.
As for sound, I'd be running it through my Denon HDMI receiver and 4 full range floor speakers (sub probably to be added later).

Oh, I misquoted the 3D from another Panny model.

Other than the Internet and WiFi features, what is superior with the S60?

I was under the impression that the S64 line was going to be Costco specific.

Ok, I found some time to read the CR reviews in depth. While this and the 50" LG both get the full circle for PQ, the in-depth reviews describe the Panny as having superior blacks and contrasts with whites and great transitions between dark and lights without banding on scenes like sunsets while the LG had slight banding. It also had superior minimal motion blur. So definitely worth the $100 premium over the LG. Unfortunately the closest 60" Pany compared to the 60" LG is almost double the cost, so can't justify that one if I decide I need 60" over 50". Next step is to go into some brick and morter stores to see if the difference between 50" and 60" is needed.

From a chat session with Panny this morning:


Chat Service: Hello. Thank you for contacting Panasonic Sales Support. Welcome to our live chat service.
Chat Service: You are now chatting with Amanda S
Amanda S: Thank you for shopping with Panasonic today. How can I help you?
JeffPA: where can I purchase the TC-50Ps64 ?
Amanda S: Please give me a moment while I look into your inquiry,
JeffPA: this is the link I was looking at: http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-50PS64
Amanda S: ear with me one moment please...
Amanda S: The TC-50PS64 is one of our new models, and isn't in stores yet.
JeffPA: Any time estimate?
Amanda S: By the end of May for most retailers.


With the Infinite Black Pro feature, this should be a killer 50 set.

The S64 will be sold at both Costco and Sam's club. One or two people here have already ordered one from Sam's Club, and someone else had a Costco AV guy check and was told something to the affect that some stores will only be getting one unit. AVJ said the S64 will be a very limited test-run initially, so it's possible that they'll pull the plug after only a small number are built, or it could be a big hit and the stores will order more.

The S64 is being discussed in the S60 thread BTW.

^just 65" now it looks like, but anyone know what sizes eventually, & if sams has a similar aftermarket warranty program to the costco one everyone raves about?

I assume I can't just go with a costco member & buy it myself? If they bought it for me the tv/warranty would be in their name. Unless transferable?

I bit the bullet today and ordered a TC-P50ST60.

I would have rather had a 42" screen for the space we have but really wanted that Infinite Black Pro anti-reflecticve screen.......I guess I'll just have to "live" with all the other features and size. smile.gif

I figured since we're talking about 50" screens, this post was fair game........S60 or 64 notwithstanding.

BTW, I found this site immensively helpful: http://*******************.com/plasmatv/panasonic-plasmatv.html
