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 you're watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it's difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.
It's 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. What's 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 are in the UK (Following a one off installation payment for Freesat services whereas for Freeview HD you will need to ensure coverage is available in your local area).

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).Read more ›
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.
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.
