This review is from: Panasonic TX-P50G20B 50-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 600Hz Neo Plasma TV with Freeview HD and Freesat HD (Electronics)Well if you are reading this, then you like me are doing your home work before buying. I researched for about three months and changed my mind about what to buy several times. I have lost count of how many reviews I studied. In the end I went for the Panasonic Viera TX-P50G20B 50" Full HD Plasma TV.
The TV wasn't on display so I couldn't see what the picture was like, but after my research I bought it anyway. This TV is brilliant, the picture quality is first class, and the clarity is just outstanding. We have the HD sky package which when coupled to the TV has to be seen to be believed.
When watching the football the other night, I was just blown away by the pure quality of the detail that you can see. On still action you can see individual blades of grass. How good is that? We also watched " The wizard of oz" to see the details of the costumes and the brilliance of the scenery has to be seen to be believed.
This TV has a 5 million to 1 contrast with a zero viewing angle; it also has a 600 hertz refresh rate. What does this mean, well on the contrast and refresh rate the higher the better. On the angle of view the lower the better. If your PC screen is LED or LCD move to the side and see how the picture starts to fade, this is what will happens with these types of TV. They are great if there is just you and you are going to sit straight in front of the screen, not so good for everyone else. Even better go to a show room and view the TVs on display form several angles, you can judge for yourself just how good they are.
I did read some reviews that said the internal speakers were not very good, I have to disagree. The speakers are fine, I do have a set of external speakers hooked up to the TV, these run through an amp and pre-amp. However 99% of the time I just listen to the TV with just the internal speakers.
So in conclusion, if you want to buy a big screen TV and want outstanding picture quality, then I have no hesitation recommending this TV to family and friends. Do everyone in your house hold a favour, buy this TV you will not be disappointed.
