Product Description

Panasonic TX-P50C3B plasma panel

HD Plasma TV with 600Hz Sub-field Drive; 2 mil:1 Contrast and VIERA Image Viewer

600Hz technology lets you view superb motion images with 720 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images; Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems; to reduce aftereffects. *When using Cinema mode

VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system; the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When youre watching movies; VIERA renders images just the way the director intended; even in scenes where its difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.

Its easy to view HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and videos on the large screen. You can also enjoy special background music; slideshow frames and transition effects.

In Game Mode; quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. Whats more; VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function; too.

VIERA Link allows the interlinked operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control; by simply connecting the devices to each other by an HDMI cable.

The C3 Series includes a DVB-T2 tuner for Freeview HD providing you with a convenient; subscription free way of watching HD contents like sport; as well as your favourite soaps; dramas and documentaries in full HD glory wherever you a

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Panasonic TV 23 July 2011
Verified Purchase
Had this Excellent 50" tv for 1 day now, I love it, it`s beautiful and looks stunning in black.
I can`t believe how far tv`s have come in the last 6 years, as it looks even better than my older 32" Sony which had a decent picture, and knocks the socks off my previous Sony 37" from 9 foot viewing distance.

I got this as a bedroom set ("I know 50" for a bedroom you say!"), but although the 50" screen size is ridiculous on first look (the delivery box packaging looked huge) and takes about 50% of my end wall, once installed in my room it looked great.
I went for this tv after a lot of deliberation for months (led, lcd, plasma) what to buy + size 42" or 50" ????, but after seeing this I really wanted a decent 50" as i`m an avid PS3 gamer and love my films with my 5.1 surround sound setup, and this tv was ideal for me as I have a viewing distance minimum 9ft to furthest distance 13ft.

Standard definition display is good (but is dependent on the channel, as some channels are better quality than others),the 600hz works really well with sport and action cutting out a lot of the motion fuzz of older tv`s and it handles dvd via scart picture superbly (tested it using the latest StarTrek film = OMG a major :) ).
It is my first plasma set always had tube or lcd`s before, but I have to say this plasma tv I love the best, great picture with deep blacks amazing.
After F1 qualifying i`m going to try out blu-ray`s and gaming on it via PS3, but if the dvd quality is anything to go by, the picture will look absolutely fantastic i`m sure, even on the tv`s 1080i max resolution.


1) Great 50" Tv, great picture with deep blacks amazing.

2) Standard definition display is good (minimum viewing distance no less than 8ft I found).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV 9 Nov 2011
By SC450
The tv was well packed and delivered within a week of placing the order.

I have had the tv for 2 weeks now and so far i am very pleased with it.
Tuning was straight forward as per the on screen menu's. For a 50 inch
screen the picture still retains very good detail, more so on the HD channels.
The sound again is good even at higher volumes.

There are more than enough settings within the user menu's for the picture
and sound for setting up the way you want.

The remote is well laid out and feels like a quality piece of kit, batteries
are supplied as expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars exellent purchase 11 May 2011
By only me
Verified Purchase
only had the tv for 2 days but on first impressions a excellent tv dont need to go out and pay a grand + for a tv had a sony that cost me a 1000 3 years ago this tv is less than half the price and this knocks spots of my last tv you only need 1080p if your watching blueray this is only 720p. freeview hd comes in at 1080i so you dont need it.for a basic tv i did not expect it to sing and dance you do get what you pay for but if you have not got a lot of money you will not regret buying this baby exellent picture on hd channels and the sound is good to and a nice looking tv to.after buying this tv i will never go out and pay stupid money again excellent tv.

17/11/11 had tv now for 6 months got to say one of the best purchase iv made in a long while. tv is excellent can not fault it picture is excellent as with all electrical items i buy i allways do my home work i still dont think you can get a better tv for your money.if you think a 50 inch might be to big its not looks great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and lovely TV 13 Jun 2011
This TV is lovely and Easy to use. It is not complicated and the features are easy. My wife and children love it. The price is one major factor which pushed me to buy it.The delivery was effective and it came the exact day that it was supposed to arrive. Customer service is superb as they will answer your emails in less that 24 hours. This is a first class service and the product is awesome.Looking for a TV to entertain the family , then you should know that Panasonic will not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic TV and a great price 8 Feb 2012
By d3matt
I had dismissed this model on paper, being the bottom of the range and I had decided to go for a Panasonic smart model with the NeoPlasma screen. That was until I went to a large Currys store and saw this next to the other (far more expensive) Panasonics - there was nothing in it. This model looked just as good as the higher spec Panasonics - and was far superior than other plasmas by LG and others. The Panasonics certainly do have the best plasma TVs. Only the day before I heard Martyn Lewis on the radio talking about spending on top models/brands and if you don't see a difference between the top and lower model, why spend the extra. He also mentioned this applied to TVs. With this still in my mind, I was converted as this 50" plasma looked just as good as other Panasonics costing 2 or 3 times as much. At 399 it was a bargain for a 50". We've since got a Sony Blu-ray player with all the internet streaming stuff (which is far better than the Panasonic smart option anyway as Panasonic doesn't support Lovefilm for one and it's also considerably cheaper).
The TV looks great in our lounge and the picture quality is amazing on FreeView HD and through the HDMI port (Blu-ray player). Sound is great too for a flat screen and sooo much better than I was expecting. I'm now pipe the sound through external speakers, but only because I have them rather than needing too. I can't fault the TV at all. It's brilliant, has good ports on the back and now with a smart blu-ray player, I have all the internet features I need for much less than buying a 'smart' model.
