4.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic TC-L55WT50, November 17, 2012
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-L55WT50 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Full HD IPS LED TV (Electronics)
This TV has taken a beating by professional reviewers such as CNET and had I not seen this TV in person, I would not have ever considered buying this TV. If you watch TV in a bright room and never watch movies in a pitch black environment, then you need to consider this TV for your next purchase. This TV is one of the best if not the best performing HDTV in medium to brightly lit environments. The sharpness and clarity of the WT50 picture quality is one of the best that I have seen and the viewing angles are unrivaled among LED/LCD TVs. The main knock on the WT50 is in its black level. When viewed in a dark room, the black levels are average at best but add some light to the room and watch the black levels turn inky black. Panasonic has done wonders with the Clear Pro panel filter in this regard. So in short, if you like watching TV in a dark room, this TV isn't for you. But, if you're like me, and always watch TV in some kind of lighted environment, then you should definitely consider this TV.

Note: I didn't buy this TV from Amazon. The local brick and mortars are selling the 55" version of the WT50 for $1799.00. At this price, this TV is a steal.

Where are you located? My BB with Magnolia has this TV for $2,299 last time I checked... I'm in Southern California.

The BB website has it priced at $2,299 but if you go to one of the stores, they have it for $1799 at least that's the price at the BB stores in Denver, CO.

I tried a GT50 but was disappointed - dark scenes would wash out too easily, it buzzed, and I discovered I was sensitive to Plasma flicker. Picked up the WT50 for $1799 at BB as well (So Cal, south OC). I had intended to get the HX850 (for $1899) but they were back-ordered, so i got the WT50 instead.

I'm very happy with the WT50.

My friend just LOVED this tcl tv. She's one of those HD-only freaks, and she adored the picture quality. I am planning to purchase one for my son. How does the TV work with an XBox? I also read somewhere about a lot of TV related accidents with children, so I plan to mount it on the wall. The brand I considered was FlexiMounts. It has a lot of choices to decide from.
