5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome TV for the $$$, April 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50UT50 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I have had this TV for about a couple weeks now and so far it has been amazing! The plasma picture quality is FAR better than LED or LCD in this price range; the only problem is the screen glare in bright rooms (you will see refections if you are viewing during the day if the curtains are not closed). In my opinion the picture quality is well worth the trouble of getting off the couch and closing the curtains.

I read previous reviews of the screen being dim. For one thing, the worst thing you can do while shopping for TV is to look at multiple display TVs. The reason behind this being, most TVs that are on display are in something tech geeks call 'Torch Mode' (basically the brightest and prettiest TV gets the most attention). This is deceptive because when you view the TV in your home you will not have another TV in the room to compare the picture to. But if the picture on this TV is not bright enough for you, go to settings and simply change the picture mode to 'Vivid' or 'Custom'.

One more thing you MUST do to get the best picture out of this TV is: go to advance settings and find 'Motion Smoother'. When you've found it, turn it OFF! This feature makes the picture look fast and as if it were filmed by a cheap camera. To get the full cinema experience it is imperative to turn this OFF.
Overall, this TV is the flagship in its class for picture quality and is an extremely good deal.

One question, and i apologize if its a stupid one, but is the tv in 3D mode all the time? Or is there an "on/off" ability to it? Im guessing you can turn 3d off (im not too keen on having to wear glasses while kicking back watching tv), but i want to make sure that firstly this tv CAN be just good old 2d, and when it IS that the picture quality isnt affected.
