I have been following this thread for a few months now, with the thought of buying a VT-50 series TV. Having read so many comment with people having to many problems to mention, are any of you owners sorry you bought this TV. I ask because we are approaching 10K comments, and most are redundant with the same issues, to numerous to mention.
Are any owners sorry they bought this product. I know I am having second thoughts. Did the CNET top rating of this TV influence you to purchase it.
I am having a hard time rationalizing why I should buy this TV after following this thread for over two months. I actually stopped reading this thread for a month, came back and people are still buying these sets and then coming here for help. How do I do this, how do I do that, this is not working, I am on my third set, Internet problems, dead pixels, break in time, calibration.
Sure there are always going to be problems with any thing you buy, but right out of the box you have to come here to set it up.
I am not here to try to burn Panasonic, I am trying to understand if this is what is to be expected from a top rated TV, if so, perhaps for me anyway, a TV I can take out of the box plug it in, make my basic adjustment and enjoy it should be the main focus of my purchase. It has nothing to do with money, I don't want to have to come here all the time and add to the list of problems people are trying to solve with their new TV.
Any opinions regarding a different TV in the 55" range would be most welcome. Does not have to be Panasonic or even plasma. I can also do without wifi and 3D.
On a final note, I didn't mean to rant, but reading this thread has overwhelmed me regarding the VT-50 series Panasonic TV....
Cnet is the only experts who gave this TV high ratings. Pretty much every expert around the world pretty much have this TV the crown of 2012. Not to mention some of the most well known calibarators and videophiles around the world came together and compared this TV among the best at the valuelectronics and the VT came out with the crown. All of the issues stated on these threads are a very small percentage. I have a 55vt50 and 65vt50 and dot have IR, buzz or any other issues and I'm very anal coming from a 111ff and 151fd.
