5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Panasonic budget TV! 5 May 2013
Size Name:50 inch|Verified Purchase
I have had three Panasonic HD Ready models since 2007, of varying sizes and specifications. This 50" model and its smaller 42" sibling represent Panasonic's 2013 bargain basement range and without doubt this is definitely a bargain.

I am not going to attempt to review this TV by reproducing specifications that can be found freely online or by writing the words of others. What I will say is that this is the best picture quality I have seen from any budget Panasonic and to be quite honest, I cannot imagine there being a better all-round TV, anywhere at this price point. The picture quality is a joy and the colours are particularly pleasing. The blacks are most definitely black and sharpness is in abundance, especially on the HD channels.

The TX-P50X50B received a 5 star review from What Hi*Fi and this set is basically the same but with some apparent "engine" improvements borrowed from the more expensive models. Panasonic however, appeared to have saved some pennies by removing the SD Card reader that can be found in the TX-P50X50B, a decision that does not impact on my usage in any way, as the USB option is still available.

What I find incredible about Plasmas nowadays, is the how light they are, how much thinner they are and how much better they are in terms of power usage.

All in all, at the time of writing, the best 450 TV around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well pleased! 22 Dec 2013
By Bob
Size Name:42 inch|Verified Purchase
I read once, somewhere, that there are two kinds of shopper. The first will go out and buy the first item they see that matches their target (ie big tv, local supermarket. Jobdone!) The second kind will endlessly research and price check before finally buying. The first is generally the more satisfied with their purchase. I'd probably fall into the second category, but I am pleased with this tv!

I must admit I agonized long and hard over whether, in 2013, it really was wise to buy a tv that's only 720. But how much 1080 do I view. None. I don't have blueray and have no intention on buying any. I have a sky digibox that's fifteen years old. The picture is fine for me and my family. Its not the sharpest picture I've ever seen, maybe that's down to the sd signal. One of the best features of this tv for me is its ability to play media files off usb. I took a hard drive out of an old laptop, put it in a 2.50 caddy I got off Amazon (formatted it FAT32 - download a small program don't use dos - it takes hours), and I can now store all my films on it. Mkv, mp4, avi etc it plays (nearly) all of them. Watched a few 720's, nice.

My kids are now watching a Harry Potter dvd, and we've just zoomed the picture to fill the screen, cutting off the ends! At about eight foot viewing distance its not a bad picture. not pin sharp though. There's lots of options, though sidecut zoom isn't available on media files. Also mobile phone video - on my mp4's there's no sound, and 3gp not supported ;-(

Its a plasma, the blacks are nice. My son's video games look nice. I can't really compare it to an led cause I've come straight from a CRT. I was tempted to order two tv, I'd got the 39inch panasonic 1080 led shortlisted.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent budget television 15 Jan 2014
By Dr Ed
Size Name:42 inch|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for a replacement for my trusty Toshiba CRT and was constantly disappointed by the performance of LED /LCD sets, blacks were grey, motion was handled badly, light bleeding at edges and constantly changing 'dynamic' contrast.
This set was a bargain from Amazon at under 270 including delivery.

Good points- excellent picture, good handling of standard definition TV, deep blacks, simple design

Bad points- reflection from screen may bother some with bright living rooms, small amount of 'buzz' especially on brighter scenes, not 'Full HD', power consumption, not a 'smart' set

NB the first set I received had to be swapped due to intolerable screen buzz, but Amazon were as efficient as usual

In summary I am delighted with this TV and have no hesitation in recommending it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plasma better than lcd 28 Jan 2014
Size Name:50 inch
Great value for the money. The picture quality is fantastic. I just added a Panasonic surround sound system that finishes off the experience. The TV may only be 720p, but most people wouldn't know it's not full hd

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly excellent 23 May 2013
Size Name:42 inch|Verified Purchase
Excellent picture - more realistic than LED sets. Nice solid construction - who really wants a flimsy ultra thin set? Good speakers - much better than I was expecting. My one gripe so far (only had it a week) is with auto aspect. When a program is broadcast in 4:3, as so many older ones are, this set shows it in either 16:9 or Justified which simply stretches our the sides which is not really any better. You can use the remote to change to 4:3 but I would have expected a modern TV to show all proper formats on the auto setting - which is what my old CRT Panasonic did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value 1 Aug 2013
Size Name:42 inch|Verified Purchase
I have to admit to being somewhat worried that I would be underwhelmed with the picture quality on this 42" set given that it was not full HD, but only 720P. I watch a lot of HD content, from BlueRay to streaming, and from fairly close quarters. I was, however, looking for a cheap set as a temporary stop gap until I can afford a new Panasonic plasma later this year (after my last TV died).

All I can say is that I should not have worried. I read lots of reviews up front, all praising this set, and I can wholeheartedly agree. Smart functions were not important to me as I have all I need through my XBOX and Media Streamer, so I was after decent picture quality and good black levels. This TV did not disappoint. In fact, I am very, very impressed. It really does have a fabulous picture, to the point where i'm now wondering if upgrading to 1080P is even worth the money! (might wait for 4K instead... :-)

In short, you simply WILL NOT find a better picture for this price. It's an absolute steal. Buy one before they are all gone!
