The OP should have a mod correct the misleading wording - the issue is with the metallic trim surrounding the TV, not the bezel. The actual "bezel" is black and pretty much hidden under the front glass and only becomes apparent once the TV is turned on, revealing the black bezel below the front glass.
This is what happens when so many Panny fans complain about how the Samsungs always look better than the Panasonics - they start looking more and more like the Samsungs
Personally i don't mind the metallic surround as it looks in the renderings. I've spent a lot of time in a darkened Magnolia showroom looking at the GT30 and VT30 and their silver surrounds aren't distracting to me, probably since i'm focused on the image on the screen. I wonder if the surround on the VT50 is going to be matte metallic or shiny like chrome?
