                For all of you who are thinking on buying a TV and are interested in the image (not in extras like hand or voice orders. It looks REAL, NATURAL compared to LED where colors and image feels more "artificial".
                It's a shame that the present tendency is that Plasma will disappear in the near future.
                100% recommend this TV.

                  After being repaired twice, a new board replaced(center of TV), was supposed to be a "A Board" but was not after doing some research on the net(I watched them remove it and replace it in my home). After buying a newer HD, BD 3D player, I put in a 3D movie to see if or not a difference and there was, the TC-P50GT50 Panasonic Plasma switch right to THX 3D??? In the TV manual and in more depth about the TV, RealD 3D is only mentioned. The THX 3D was not there before the other player. I ha...

                      This set looks great on and off. Great design that will look good in any room.

                      Overall PQ is the best I have ever seen. The deepest black levels combined with bright whites make for great contrast. Handles bright light room conditions amazingly well for a plasma with very little glare.

                      Colors are well saturated yet natural. THX modes look great right out of the box.

                      Clarity and motion resolution is excellent.

                      HD cable usually looks very good. Some cable content m...

                        Purchased this unit from BB about a month ago. Previous tv was from another company and had started to develop screen issues (lines, darks swirls,failing LCD panel) and was only a few years old. Lot's of research finally decided not only was it time to replace other unit it was time to replace that technology, thus the plasma. Compared product lines from the two companies that are at the top review wise. This was the unit I decided to get and I have absolutely zero regrets. The only issue I hav...
