Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA TC-L47DT50 47-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Full HD IPS LED-LCD TV (Electronics)
Bought the 47" version of TV on Cyber Monday for $800 and used $250 Chase Freedom points so quite a steal at $550. This TV has received a bad wrap from the CNET review which gave it quite a lashing, as well as some other reviewers here but I trusted the AVS forums review and pulled the trigger and I am glad I did! This TV is gorgeous and the picture is bright and beautiful after spending a few minutes configuring the picture settings. There is a little artifacting with the motion interpolation set to strong, (see Motion Picture Settings under Advanced options) but I've found it looks great set to weak. No soap opera effect and a little smoother.
I really can't understand the complaints about the blacks. With the picture configured they are pretty deep. I looked at a few plasmas, specifically the LG 50PA5500 and the base model viera and while these blacks aren't as deep as the plasmas, they are still great.
The setup was easy, the Netflix app is a nice feature and the HD video streaming over wifi looks superb. The sound is okay but I will be setting up surround speakers so not a big deal to me.
Not much else to say. I love the TV.
