The problem is that once you rule out projection, which won't work in my case unless a divorce lawyer is part of the package, you really have very few options above the 65 without breaking the bank. I sit about 12-13 feet away from the set and would love a 73" set from Panny, but that probably won't happen.

You are right, there are no "good" options over the 65" size. Although I always mention the FP option to people who have a greater distance to their display, it's not an easy setup.

Are there any recent V10 reviews? I have the 50 inch G10 and really like it. I need a 46 inch set for another room and can wait.

What will be the extra gizmos with the V10? I had thought that I would not use the web browser on the G10 but it is fun. The youtube videos are very funny. I will start and just intend on seeing one and then twenty of them later I realize that I better go do something else. The neat thing about the youtube feature is that you can select the most viewed videos from that day. Some of the stuff happened just an hour or two beforehand.

Regardless, I am interested in using the network camera once the cameras go on sale. I assume from the model number that the V10 will have network camera capability.

What will be the essence of what makes it technically different than the G10? Thickness?

A few things about the V-10, screen sizes for the US are 50, 54, 58, and 65"...no smaller ones headed to the US(as of now). Additional features over the G-10 include, 4 HDMI inputs, Digital Cinema Color, 24p Cinematic Playback at 96Hz, the 50" model has a swivel base and the one sheet of glass design(that's not really one piece of glass).

And...

Advanced Picture Settings ("Pro Settings").

Has this been confirmed????
post #40 of 10489
I'm also waiting for the 50" V10 to hit. I'm in the market for a new TV and so far have liked the G10 and the Samsung LED sets, but both have issues that made me pause on making a purchase. On paper, the V10 seems to have everything I would want and is still priced quite reasonably. If it comes out and doesn't seem worth the extra money, I'll probably buy one of the other two sets.

Well they are listed in V10 owner's manual that Panasonic posted.

I guess if my statement was "dumb", your response was worse. If you are going to refute someone's statement, don't provide evidence to support it.
post #44 of 10489
how much do you think the v10 is going to be priced at once it's out for a month (amazon.com pricing)
post #45 of 10489
Hi All,

Do you guys know if the V10 are 3D capable. I am looking forward for 3D capable plasma TV's. Samsung has been out with 3D capable since 2008. Why doesn't Panasonic jump in? At vanns.com it says the V10 has 3D capability, but the Panasonic website does not say any thing about it. What refresh rate would it be, if it is 3D capable, 48Hz/48Hz left/right?

I hate to buy a brand new TV to find out only the 2010 models are 3D ready.
post #46 of 10489
I'd be willing to bet that if Tv's started out in 2 pieces like the V10's TV and control box and then went to 1 piece and it's only a little bit thicker people would be rushing to the stores to buy them.
post #47 of 10489
SO when is the 50 V1 coming out? I might consider switching to it from the G10 if the price is ok. I have 2 1/2 weeks left

Consumer reports failure rate.

I guess it depends on which type of 3D. One of the types pushed now is the Nvidia 3D which has the glasses. Samsung has a 120 Hz refresh rate LCD that is rated for this type of 3D. The Nvidia website has lots of good info on the "Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision" if that is the type of 3D you were interested in. From what I have been reading in the computer enthusiast literature, the adoption of production of these monitors is going to be limited since the demand is not going to be high (yet). It may be sometime before there is a plasma that can do this.

As far as the comment above about the inputs. If there is one drawback to the G10 it is that only one composite or S input can be used on the back. To keep the appearance streamlined I do not want to use any inputs on the side. I have a VHS/Hi-8 VCR and also a VHS/mini-DV VCR to play back home video. Having only one input on the back of the tv requires me to put one of the decks into the other. Gets cumbersome. But definitely not a deal breaker.

Eventually, all of the home video will go onto Blu-Ray or computer hard drive so this detriment should not be a factor in a year or two.

Thank you very much for the comment above that 50 will be the smallest size for the V10. That means that I can go ahead and get another G10 when I can afford it.

Just checking to see if there is any update on a release date? I know the rumors were May or June for the 50V10, but has anything been confirmed?

Nothing has yet been absolutely confirmed, and probably won't be until someone spots one at a retail store or website.
(I'm waiting too, and trying to forget about it.)

The Panasonic promotional material on their website does not list any size over 54". That worries me as I want a larger set.

Guess they need to update this brochure...http://panasonic.net/avc/viera/us/product/v_plasma.html

I'm in line for a 58V10 to replace my 58PZ750U which has a purple problem. The following is taken from the March 2009 press release...
The V10 series is available in a 65-inch class (64.8 measured diagonally), 58-inch class (58 measured diagonally), 54-inch class (54 measured diagonally), and a 50-inch class (49.9 measured diagonally) screen size. The 50-inch model with one-sheet-of-glass design will be available in May 2009 and the remaining models will be available in the summer of 2009.
post #54 of 10489
Any guesses as to what the street/internet price of the 58" V10 will be?

Thanks!

Why are you worried? It's already been established and officially announced by Panasonic that the V10 will be available in a 58" and 65" size later this summer.

Anyone heard anything yet about specific release dates? I know May is supposed to be the release for the 50"...but is that May 1st or May 31st?
Not that I'm impatient or anything.

Panasonic never releases a specific date. One very good indicator is that they have been on time, and in some cases early, on every model so far. The 54" G10 and 54"S1 are already in the pipeline and available online(saw them on butterflyphoto.com).

Anyone know what MSRP on the 65v10 is supposed to be anyhow?

You're wrong!

Outside of FP, there are plenty of great options - if you can live with one or two limitations regarding vertical viewing angles and non wall-mountability.

RPs
Samsungs 750 DLP series received Cnets Editor's choice and I can personally attest to it's PQ being very comparable to Panasonic's 58" 800u in terms of sharpness, vibrancy, black levels and and color accuracy.
And is bulb/colorwheel/noise-less.

Panasonic's only advantages are better viewing angles, uniformity and mountability ALL of which are negligible in a proper sitting environment

Mitsubishi makes great DLPs too with one coming out at 83 or so inches.

Their Laservue DLP gives even the mighty Pioneer Kuro a serious spanking. Also bulb/colorwheel/noise-less.

All of which has nearly perfect motion resolution, no blur and for the most part, the best value in size/quality.

Mitsubishi stopped the Laservue production.

Wall mounting is an issue with large DLPs.

I called Panasonic today and I was told that the 65" v10 will be out on 08/06/2009.
