5.0 out of 5 stars Best 3D plasma on the market for under 1k, March 31, 2012
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-P50UT50 50-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I just picked up this 2012 Viera TC-P50UT50 and I must say I'm quite impressed. I had a 4 year old Samsung 50" HT-P5064 and it's like night & day. This Panasonic is absolutely amazing for under $1000! I was really itching on going for the ST50 series but considering that I can control the lighting in my setup, I really didn't see spending the extra $300 was worth it to me. I've calibrated this set as best as I could and I'm breaking it in slowing but will eventually purchase the Spears & Munsil Blu-Ray calibration disc to get the colors & contrast as best as possible. The picture quality is second to none. Deep, inky black levels, jaw dropping colors & fantastic contrast ratios with pretty intuitive picture control settings, Panasonic really knows how to make plasma's. As much as I love the looks of those new LED TV's on the market, I just can't see myself purchasing one. The natural fluid motion picture feel of Panasonic plasma just can't be beat! Netflix streaming, Amazon Prime Instant Video & DLNA (big plus!) is great on this set. They have a nifty mobile device app you can get for iPhone/Android to control the TV but I haven't really got into playing with it. If you're on the fence on getting a new 2012 TV for just around the 1k point, this is the one to get, trust me and others that praise it. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks for the tip about the Spears and Munsil calibration disc. I'm thinking about getting the UT50 TV (my first HDTV) and never thought about a calibration disc. Glad you mentioned it.
