my 55UT50 develope a "line" on the right side,this "line" is strange...in the right side looks like when you increase brightness a little too much and on the other looks normal (duller)(i know the way i explain is no a "line"but i cant find the right word) anyway i returned to BB today and and get a Samsung 60e550 and see if i have better luck this time.

I almost bought the Samsung ones when I bought my TV but decided that since I was financing everything with 0% APR for 3 years that the Panasonic glasses were worth it because they're rechargeable and battery life was said to last longer than the replaceable batteries of the Samsung glasses. They also look better built/more solid than the Samsung glasses.
Will the ssg-4100gb work?

Should have returned it for another UT50 and just used Anikun's service mode settings... I wasn't extremely satisfied with the colors until I tried his settings and now I am very happy. wink.gif

Hey, new UT50 owner here smile.gif
Bought two pairs last week, they're working very well (Even when worn over my prescription glasses).

I was a little worried at first as I could see the active shutter flicker, but they are great in a darkened room.
Wore them for around six hours on Saturday night with occasional breaks and felt no discomfort.
The batteries (CR2025) seem to be dirt cheap on eBay, so the lack of re-charge function is not really an issue.

I am still waiting to see if Panasonic honour my claim for two free pairs. The Samsung's will make great backups.

What if they don't sync? Btw, thx for the reply.
post #1327 of 2596
The TV should automatically sync when you turn them on.

There won't be any sync problems. The 2012 Samsung and Panasonic glasses both use compatible Bluetooth signals smile.gif

Funnily enough two free pairs of Panasonic glasses just arrived! Only took 7 days, much quicker than expected.
Only had a quick look, but I'll compare them properly this evening. My immediate impression is that they are not worth the extra cost.

post #1330 of 2596
The ST50 has the louvre filter which some owners feel it causes DSE and removes a clarity the UT50 has without it. The UT50 also comes in 60 inch screens too.

New to this thread but avid ST thread reader. Still deciding between UT and ST (55").

I know you guys are ALL about PQ and I've seen both pros and cons for each set so I know about those. My question is more in the realm of sound. YES! I tried searching thread for sound comparisons but didn't find much. Maybe my search of "sound" was not deep enough though...

In my case this sound issue is important b/c the $200-$300 I save by going w/ the UT may be spent on the Panny sound bar (SC-HTB 550). HOWEVER, if I up for the ST I may not need a soundbar. WHY? Well I don't know....that's why I am here asking. I would think that the ST's speakers ( Front speaker (8 train speakers) x 2, Woofer (ø80 mm) x 1 [from Panasonic site]) would have to account for a difference to the UT (2 speakers [from Panasonic site]).

Can anyone in this thread confirm if this difference is noticeable? rolleyes.gif I know that TV speakers are never going to be as good as a soundbar, just like a soundbar will never be as good as a surround system so no need to tell me this. wink.gif

Either TV will be an upgrade from my '08 42" VIZIO that needs to played at a volume of 65 when streaming NetFlix so that I can understand what's going on from 13' away on my couch.
post #1333 of 2596
I would recommend UT50 and soundbar unless you need the louvre filter for glare reduction. If you have a nice dark room then the UT50 is the better value, I think. In that's case, get the soundbar with the money saved or put it toward a multichannel system. For a little bit more you could easily get a fair 2.0 stereo system that I think would outperform a soundbar. You should have read that the ST50 should have a better Viera experience because the additional processing power. But for calibration purposes, I think it's just 2 point, but it's in the regular picture menu.
post #1334 of 2596
I return a ut50 that develope a issue in the screen and get a st50 and i like it much better than the ut50.
post #1335 of 2596
Can you kind people please sum up the major "known issues" in the UT50?

For example, my V20 has:

- Floating blacks
- Buzzing issue due to cracking transformers
etc.

I am based in the UK, they are running a promotion for purchases between Aug-Dec 2012.
http://promotions.panasonic.co.uk/offer/smart-viera-3d-glasses-promotion/landing/

I wasn't 100% certain I was eligible, but received two pairs after submitting a scan of the receipt and a photo of the serial number.
They appear to be the TY-ERD4MA model, so they don't offer USB charging. It's a minor disappointment, though they thankfully use the same CR2025 batteries as the Samsung's.

Amazingly these models seem to be no cheaper online, it's all very confusing. Just like all these conflicting 3D standards rolleyes.gif

I actually think the Samsung's are better if you wear them over prescription glasses. It is also much easier to change the battery on the Samsung glasses. The Panasonic's have a tiny little screw which is just begging, (or inevitably) going to thread itself.

Of course the Panasonic glasses won the 'guest' test. They do look much better.

I can 100% confirm that the ssg-4100gb's work with the UT50.
There are no sync issues and the 3D effect seems to match the Panasonic models.

I could take a photo of my TV and glasses collection if you still have reservations tongue.gif

Got my SSG-4100. Holy ...... the 3D on this tv is amazing biggrin.gif Thanks for the reply, will buy another 3 SSG

Samsung and Panasonic share a 3d Bluetooth Standard, this is the first year there has been any kind of standard for active shutter, before each company used their own proprietary interaction.
post #1344 of 2596
I am so close to pulling the trigger on the 55" version today. Worried a bit about gaming and lag but I guess I can always return it and hopefully get a PM from Amazon if it goes cheaper than today. What an ordeal. I feel like there is no truly good gaming tv this year and almost just got one of last year's models. I would have done if they weren't so pricey.
post #1345 of 2596
Many people have said you can't find a TV with less lag time this year than the UT50.
post #1346 of 2596
Game mode works very well for gaming,all other modes are pretty bad. My shot/hit registration was horrible in call of duty on every mode except game. I accidentally played in cinema mode the other night and was getting raped and wondered why and then i remembered i had changed it from game to watch the dark knight rises and as soon as i changed it back to game i was a beast again lol.

I want to get some 3D glasses for my Panasonic UT50 55". I know it takes active glasses, but the price for the Panasonic glasses are rather expensive for 2 pairs. I was wondering if anyone knows much about 3D glasses made by "3Active"? They are reasonably price for 2 pairs. I found them on Amazon.com. Are they worth getting or will I be better off paying the price on the Panasonic glasses?

 

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/PANASONIC-Compatible-3ACTIVE%C2%AE-Glasses-Rechargeable-TWIN-PACK/dp/B008BUGZFK/ref=sr_1_23?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353753655&sr=1-23&keywords=panasonic+ut50+3d+glasses

Any info anyone might have, mainly, will they work just as good as the Panasonic's?

Thanks,

Ghpr13smile.gif

I think they will work, but there's no guarantee.

Hi there, I need HELP. I am planning to buy a TV today;hopefully you can give me some sound advice. I am buying one of two I have chosen, one plasma,or one LED. The plasma is the SMART VIERA® 50" Class UT50 Series Full HD Plasma HDTV, and the LED is the Panasonic® TC-47LE54 47-in. Smart LED HDTV**.

I am putting it in the living room on the main floor, in the corner where no direct light will hit it, but the room is an open space, very sunny with a huge window in the room. Both TVs will be roughly 800 dollars, so the price is nearly the same. My problem is that I am a woman who can see the difference between the plasma and LED TVs, just as I can hear the differences made in stereo systems. So I know the plasma is the better picture. But what about in a sunny room? I want to use the TV for Skype with family, and I have a 2 year old (taking that into consideration because of the front of the TVs).

I need some serious advice on which one to buy. I read about the flickering, and in my house had to change the energy saving curly light bulbs back to old school, because I has vision issues from the flickering in those lights in the house.

Help please!! Hopefully I will hear back today...thanks!!

I think you might have some issues with the UT50 in a bright Sunny room, the UT50 has no AR coating to deal with reflections. Not sure about the Panasonic LED but it will definitely have inferior black levels. Whether you will see the flickering is unknown but most people don't. Is your budget fixed ? MIght want to move up to the ST50 performs better in a bright room.
