    5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional 50" TV 25 Mar 2011
    By Alex P
    I have owned this TV since June 2010, when it was 1,700.

    It is excellent at upscaling standard definition TV (at 5 metres viewing distance or more, you may even start struggling to tell the difference between standard and high definition pictures, even at 50 inches). With high def and bluray it is exceptional. It is also has a fast enough response time to work well with fast motion in sport and games. Sound is fine too, though it deserves a proper surround sound system.

    Note, this is not a 3D TV. If you want 3D, then consider the Panasonic VT20 (or even better the new JVC projectors).

    This was What Hifi's best 50" TV of 2010.

    The TV has a simple-to-use THX setting, which automatically sets colour and contrast as accurately as possible to reflect the original film print settings - the holy grail for serious AV lovers, who want their films to be replayed so they look as close as possible to the intentions of the film director (it also switches off most of the unnecessary picture processing). To improve on this, you need to hire specialist calibrators to come into your house. I did manage to slightly improve the picture by using my AV amp to do the upscaling instead, but then my amp costs 3,500, so this gives you an idea of how good value this TV is.

    For a truly comprehensive review, follow this link:


    The only reasons I can think of not choosing this TV are

    1) if you are more interested in the look of the TV when it is switched off rather than the picture quality when it is switched on (e.g. if you want a sheer black glass sheet, or silver and glass frame (which can bring other unwanted issues such as light reflections on the glossy finish).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Glad i went plasma 18 Mar 2011
    By Sponge
    After much deliberation, 3-D?? LCD?? LED?? Plasma?? we decided to bite the bullet and order this little big beauty. Upon opening the box it is a little more pleasing to the eye than some of the other Panasonic TV's on the market. The frame is modern without being too "out there". The television was easily set up although I would advise you enlist some help for lifting onto the stand and into place.

    First off connected the sky (standard subscription), fair picture, this has got better with time (as expected being a plasma), still trying to convince the Mrs that we need Sky HD though.

    Next connected up my Sony BDV-E370 Blu Ray system.......WOW!! Iron Man 2 looks simply amazing, Avatar even better. Little to no blur, amazing blacks and a super clear picture.

    Then onto my Xbox, again fantastic. Playing COD on a 50" screen gives you a definate advantage against the enemy, as with the Blu-Ray the picture produced is fantastic, Makes my previous TV (2 year old sharp 42" LCD) look mediocre by comparison.

    Finally the free wi-fi dongle that came in the box comes in handy at times, mainly used for You-tube at the moment but I am told the range of on-line content available should broaden over time.

    my only gripe, and I really am clutching at straws here, is that the remote control could have been made a little more aesthetically pleasing.

    So 3 months down the line all is well, no sign of screen burn (and I play a lot of xbox) the picture has improved again and only the slightest of buzz's (mainly on bright white screens).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great alternative non 3D Plasma ! 25 Mar 2011
    By Simon F
    I fancied changing my 4 year old Panasonic 50" PX600 (great tv in its right) and had initially looked at the Panasonic 50" G20 plasma. However, upon closer examination, I didn't like the look of the G20 despite it being a very technically competent TV.

    I didn't want to go down the 3D route and hence came to the conclusion that the V20 would be perfect for me. The TV is very aesthically pleasing to the eye; unusual gun metal finish as opposed to a lot of blacks used by many TV manufacturers. In addition, it had all the features I wanted above my trusty PX600 (full HD, faster frame rate, more HDMI sockets, wi-fi capability...)

    Picture wise, SKY HD / Freeview HD looks gorgeous, Movies via blu ray look smooth and colours vivid. Motion is handled with ease.

    Sound wise, I think the speakers are ok and do the job admirably.

    All in all, I am 100% happy with my purchase.
