Panasonic VIERA TC-P65V10 Plasma HDTV: Amazing Picture, Rich Internet Features, and Easy Control Features

VIERA® flat-panel HDTVs offer incredible black reproduction, with a rated dynamic contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1, so you'll get warm, accurate skin tones, gorgeous greens, breathtaking blues and vivid reds. VIERA flat-panels also deliver a super-wide viewing range, with fluid, uninterrupted motion. So whether you're watching a sporting event or an action-packed movie, you'll always get the most impressive viewing experience possible, from any angle. Plus, VIERA Link makes it easy to connect all of your compatible AV devices. That means your Blu-ray Disc™ player, DVD recorder/player, home theater system and hi-def camcorder can be operated by a single VIERA remote control. You can even view digital photos via the SD card slot, which comes standard on all new VIERA flat-panel HDTVs.

High contrast on the TC-P65V10
Panasonic's Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction for high contrast
Cinema Mode 600Hz Sub-Field Drive

600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems to reduce aftereffects.

The TC-P65V10 features a wide viewing angle
View breathtaking images with rich, vivid colors from anywhere in the room
Wide Viewing Angle with High Contrast (Native 40,000:1)

View breathtaking images with rich, vivid colors from anywhere in the room. Because plasma TVs are self-illuminating, images look beautiful from any angle. Black areas do not fade, and colors look virtually the same no matter where you sit, even in the largest rooms. And the advanced AR filter keeps images sharp, with minimal glare and dramatically reduced reflections from external light for the clearest images in a wide range of colors.

New VIERA models incorporate an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system combines with NeoPDP technology to achieve next-generation black reproduction. When you're watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it's difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.

24p Cinematic Playback

VIERA recreates the unique atmosphere of movie images so you can enjoy cinema quality in your own home. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at four times that speed by 24p Cinematic Playback. This achieves film-like reproduction versus the 2:3 pull down method of conventional TVs.

BBE ViVA HD3D Sound on the TC-P65V10
BBE ViVA HD3D Sound creates an immersive, high-definition 3D audio experience

BBE ViVA is new technology which integrates a 3D-enhancement effect with BBE High Definition Sound. ViVA creates an authentic and exciting 3D sound effect from stereo speakers while preserving the clarity, definition, presence and texture for which BBE High Definition Sound is noted. That means getting the rich cinematic audio experience you expect, all with the added excitement of 3D enhancement.

VIERA Image Viewer

It's easy to view full-HD images with the built-in SD card slot. Share your photos and recorded video right after you take them. Simply insert your camera's SD card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large-screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920 x 1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio--and you can also choose from among 3 types of background music and 4 display effects to create a great slideshow experience.

VIERA Link on the TC-P65V10
Control all your HDMI devices with one VIERA remote control using VIERA Link

VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control when the devices are connected via HDMI, so you can clear your coffee table with the convenience of having one remote. VIERA Link is a Panasonic Distinctive name for the function of HDAVI control. Not all VIERA Link features are useable with earlier VIERA-Link-compatible products.

VIERA Tools for Quick Access to Your Favorite Functions

With the new VIERA Tools user interface, simply press a button on the remote control for access to an icon-driven interface for common features like photos or movies. Its easy operation means you spend more time enjoying your TV instead of picking out complex menu functions on a remote control.

Game Mode

In Game mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. This mode improves anti-image retention (wobbling), so the action stays crisp and clear. And VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly, so you'll always be prepared for what's around the corner.

Pros: 65" is a great size for my living room, and the picture quality allows you to feel that you're there. A seated newscaster looks the same size as if they were on the other side of a window. The custom pro pic adjustments make any source look great!

Cons: As with all plasmas, the light reflection can be annoying. It is certainly watchable in the daytime with the shades open, but a bit distracting. The THX mode default is "HD Size 2" 100% scan, which introduces some edge noise with some sources (cable)

Summary: I've been waiting for months for the 65 inch V10 to become available. Almost pre-ordered it online several times, but was leary of ordering before it was in stock. Happened into Best Buy on Fri Aug 21 and saw the 58" on display. Asked about the 65" and found out the store had just received one that day and intended to set it up for display the next day. After a short negotiation I had secured this first set for $3899 ($100 off MSRP) and had it delivered free on the following Tuesday. First thing I did after setting it up was to switch the picture setting from Vivid to THX and the picture was amazing. Flipped through a few channels and watched some dark scenes from shows on my DVR that I had been saving just for this purpose. The clarity in low light scenes better than I had imagined. I have played with the custom pro picture settings some, but haven't spent enough time to get it looking better than THX yet. I have enjoyed the Viera Cast features, especially the weather and YouTube. I was watching a movie on cable and started wondering what other movies had the same director.

Let's start by asking why you want this tv? LCD tv's are lighter, use less energy, costs have come way down, no screen burn in to worry about. However, Plasma tv's are still cheaper, have greater viewing angles, and produce vastly better picture quality. LCD's have come a long way, but they can not reproduce the deep, rich blacks of a plasma. I waited thru a back-order status to get this. Everything I read said that the Pioneer Elite is the best plasma you can buy(for $7000!). Not wanting to spend that, the second best was supposedly this tv. However, I still would not pay $4000. That's why I was shocked to see that my local big-box retailer had it for $2900!! For that it's worth every penny. LCD tv's produce pictures that are bright, crisp, and sharp. Well, I don't like that. Real life is not sharp and crisp, but soft and textured. The picture produced by LCD's seems fake to me. Most often, you'll find LCD's displaying animated films in store demo mode. The reason is b/c animated films are supposed to be sharp and creased and bright, and are good matches for LCD's. I like films, and plasma's do a much better job displaying them. So, why should you buy this model, and not a lower model? What are the main differences? Well, this model is capable of displaying 1080P 24fps(frames per second) at 24hz(the refresh rate of the pic), lower models do not have this capability. What this means, is that it is a perfect match for Blu-ray. Most films are shot in 24fps 24hz. If the tv can't display that, it must "convert" the signal to it's native resolution to display the film. That can mean less smooth motion, and can introduce "noise" into the picture. Broadcast tv doesn't run at 1080P 24 fps, only Blu-Ray films. So, this tv is for serious movie buffs only who will be playing plenty of Blu-Ray films.Read more ›

This is a wonderful TV. I used to have a 65" LCD (LC-65D93U) for the past two years and 10 days ago I upgraded to TC-P65V10. I used a set of break-in slides for 180 hours (to age the color phosphors and get it ready for professional calibration). Finally, it was calibrated today and WOW!!!! The picture quality is unbelievable. Maybe the best A/V purchase I've ever made.

I received my 65V10 about 2 weeks ago and am very satisfied with the picture set on THX mode. I was able to find this review on the 50V10 which is very thorough [...].

Perhaps one of the best features is the THX mode. By selecting this setting I can pretty much rest assured the TV is at near peak settings. This means no calibration necessary which appeals to a low Video tech guy like me. My engineering degree is not in that field.

Also, if one Googles WHITE PAPER PLASMA one finds an excellent independent comparison of plasma, LCD and DLPs funded by Pioneer. I am moving up from a seven year old 57" Hatachi DLP. There is a significant step change in clarity, detail and color. I believe a LCD or even a DLP is brighter than the plasma but the plasma is sufficiently bright for my interior room. As they say the blacks are indeed very black.

With my DLP upgrade, I actually found the 65V10 used less space when one considers that all components can be placed under the TV while some components require side placement with my old DLP. The 65" does not look particularly big for my nominal 15' by 20' room with corner installation.

I am a little miffed with the TV's internet capability since I can get there anyway with the PS3 I purchased specifically for Blu-Ray, a choice I do not regret for a primarily non-gamer family. The PS3 has wireless capability right out of the box. Suspect I will understand the 65V10's capability better as time goes on and I have a chance to add a wireless receiver to the TV (it requires a hard connection to tap the internet connection)

The colors and detail are extraordinary are amazing and as I say I am very satisfied.

Based on the reviews and blogs I believe the burnin concern is a non issue.
