55" Smart VIERA Plasma TV - A Reference Model in Both Functions and Picture Quality

The display alternately shows images for the left and right eyes. The left and right lenses of the eyewear open and close in sync with this display timing to show separate images to the left and right eyes. By repeating this action at high speed, the brain perceives 3D images. And because this method displays FULL HD 3D images just as they are, both eyes receive 3D images in high, full-HD quality.

This original Panasonic technology detects image movements like the human eye, and optimises the drive accordingly. By achieving instantaneously powerful light emission rather than finely divided emission, it reduces the afterimages that cause blurring. As a result, fast movement is reproduced with excellent clarity.

Improvements to the panel filter that blocks the entry of external light, and advances in the pre-discharge control that can cause black floating have

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Picture 26 Feb 2013
Style Name:50 inch
I spent weeks looking at different TVs as my old LG 1080p LCD had given up the ghost. I was initially and I think somewhat naively put off by the 'plasma' TVs due to a belief that LED/LCD was superior. I viewed many top of the range Samsung, Sony, LG TVs but felt that none of them came close in picture quality to the VT.

This TV has a natural unforced picture with amazing black levels. I watch a lot of dark movies and I've been amazed at the extra detail that can be seen. It is also great for sport. The sound is average in my opinion, but if you are getting a TV like this then you will probably want a separate sound system for that home cinema experience anyway.

It is expensive, but having had the TV for nearly 2 months now I do not regret purchasing it one bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is not an LED TV 2 Aug 2012
Style Name:50 inch|Verified Purchase
Normally I would not consider a Plasma - embarassingly I ordered it by mistake! Well actually to be fair it was because Amazon originally wrongly described the product as LED. Thankfully before deciding to send it back (with an accompanying rude message to Amazon) I took time to view it. Despite my intial predjudice against Plasma I could only conclude that the picture is actually very, very good and at times stunning. I am still waiting to get to grips with the other Internet functions. In short I was very impressed - I guess Plasma has moved on a lot since I last looked at TVs, so it stays.....just as well really I wouldn't fancy repackaging it. Five stars for the product.

Update - having now had the TV for more than a week, I have to say I am a blown away with this TV. With a good source, a decent Blue Ray Player, the picture is better than I have ever seen on a TV. The THX modes are a very usefull function. When I first selected this mode I thought the colours where a little subdued compared to the other modes. However having stuck with it for a while you realise that it gives a much more natural realistic picture, which I guess is the whole point with THX modes.

The TV is outstanding. Don't let the label PLASMA put you off.

Update after 10 months, still extremely happy with this purchase.

If your reading this then you`ve probably already made up your mind about buying this TV.
Yes its big.
Yes its expensive.
No....you wont find anything better!
This is the "Reference" Tv. It the equivalent of a BMW 5 Series car.....other car manufacturers use it as a bench mark.....a target to reach....no one has...yet!
Picture quality in 2D and 3D is spectacular. Rich colours and very dense blacks make the 3D experience stunning. Too many other TV`s have to use intense colours to make up for the lack of depth, which leave you with unnatural colours and over the top contrast. Once setup correctly this TV will deliver totally natural and "believable" colours. There`s plenty of HDMI connections... Aerial,sat,ethernet,sd card and usb connections too for HHD recording of TV programmes. At last panasonic have made the connections on the back lay flat against the TV so there`s no more problems with HDMI leads(or any other connections) being bent up against the wall if you wall mount it.
If you can stomach the price and sit at least 10 feet away from it......it`s a must have item if your into Movies and other AV media.

UPDATE: April 6th 2013
I feel i must update my experience with this tv due to panasonic`s lack of customer care.
6 months after buy this TV it developed a loud buzzing noise when the screen was bright or white. I knew plasma Tv`s buzzed slightly before i bought this model, but when i got it, it was all but silent. This buzzing has got louder and louder to the point where i can hear it clearly from where i`m sitting (over 3 metres away) and at times i have to turn up the volume to drown out the buzzing. i have spoken to Panasonic about this problem but they say that this is within specification even though they haven`t actually heard it!
