5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 28 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-P50X50B 50-inch Widescreen HD Ready Plasma TV with Freeview HD - Black (Electronics)
first things first, i do have a 1080p top end viera plasma, so any comparison in picture quality between that and this 720p entry level viera plasma, is literally involves me walking from one room to another... of which i have done numerous times

this tv is £1000 less than my other model and the difference in picture quality on 'every day HD' is minimal... and i genuinely mean that. If your viewing habits involve SkyHD, a bit of Xbox or PS3, maybe some Netflix Lovefilm iTunes streaming download HD, then this tv scores an effortless 10 out of 10 for its price range. honestly, a breathtaking picture

so where's the difference?

ok, simple to explain that one...

run the latest blu-ray on the top end 1080p plasma and watch it from say 8ft or less away, and then run the exact same blu-ray on the entry level 720p plasma from the same distance, and then you'll start to notice the incremental difference. mild pixelation creeps in, the edges lose a smidge of their sharpness, and all round resolution just takes a tiny bit of a hit

but...

do that same test from a viewing distance of say 12-15ft, and those incremental differences pretty much disappear to the untrained eye

Super Sunday looks amazing, Downton Abbey looks amazing, Call of Duty and Fifa look amazing... buy it

We didn't have much chance to review the product before we bought and now I'm wishing we had. We've had our Panasonic TX-42X50B for 2-3 years (not from amazon) and it's a right royal pain in rear. Every time we get a power cut we lose the TV for days, sometimes up to a week! Nothing to do with power surges as we first thought, it just doesn't like being unplugged from the electrical supply. Please if you are researching Panasonic, especially THIS model, do NOT even consider it. I am disgusted that Panasonic could even ALLOW this product to go on sale in the first place, surely they MUST HAVE KNOWN about this problem. Sorry rant over, third day without our main TV and all I wanted to do was play a DVD in the lounge :( You have to leave it unplugged for several days to get it back on, don't waste your money taking it in for repair like we did the first time!
