Excellent TV for the price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TX-P50U30B 50-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 600Hz Plasma TV with Freeview HD (Electronics)
I spent a lot of time trying to decide which TV to replace our ageing 32" Panasonic CRT, eventually decided it needed to be plasma and then Panasonic and finally this and haven't regretted it at all. Compared to last years "neo Plasma" there is no difference as far as we could tell with really deep blacks rather than the usual grey of plasmas.
This TV is a basic set without a lot of the bells and whistles of the other sets in the range but it has everything I need, deep blacks, realstic flesh tones, high contrast and no flicker or lag. The menus are simple and logical, and the plain piano-black finish is acceptable. Playing with menus for half an hour, you soon realise that there are plenty of options to set the picture according to your tastes. Sound is excellent (for a TV) once set up correctly but for films would play through surround system anyway. The fast update rate is excellent for sports with no discenrable flicker. Only possible drawback is that the screen is very reflective and so needs careful sighting.
Cannot get HD yet but picture is excellent in SD mode and DVD's played through the component inputs are excellent.
