5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic GT50 - 50 inch from Amazon, June 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT50 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV (2012 Model) (Electronics)
It has been 2+ months now since I have owned this TV... The picture quality is amazing to say the least:) Amazon is great in all respect and I couldn't recommend more. I have read a lot of review on Google, comparison GT50 Vs ST50; with most of them recommending ST50 strictly based on VALUE. No comments except to say I love this TV and my decision to purchase it. Could recommend anyone for a Budget(=< $2200) any Panasonic HDTVs 2012 model, best options in my opinion.
Anyways some useful stuff; I have used this configuration and it greatly improved PQ

For comparison purposes I'm also including my THX Cinema settings, which are very close to default aside from the Contrast bump to bring up light output.
Comparing the two, the greenish cast of THX is evident and makes for an inferior picture.

Kavita Chavan, you should give credit to Katzmaier of CNET because you just copied his own post word for word.
