The Perfect Smart TV Experience: A Suite of Technologies

DLNA/Built-in Wi-Fi
The VT50 series has DLNA compatibility and built-in Wi-Fi which gives you even more layout flexibility.

Local Dimming and Super High Speed 1920 Backlight Scanning
1920 backlight scanning working with a panel at 240hz gives you higher picture resolution and reduction of afterglow. Sports, action, and fast-motion scenes are crisp and clear. The WT50 features local dimming, which is a technology in which LEDs are dimmed individually or in groups behind dark areas of the picture, thus making blacks darker without affecting brighter elements of the picture.

Smart VIERA Engine Pro
A dual core processor chip for high-end models (only available on the WT50, GT50, and VT50 models) which provides enhanced differentiated image quality and processing at high speed. Image quality is enhanced to faithfully reproduce the beauty of the image.

3D 24p Cinema Smoother
VIERA gives you naturally flowing 24p images with the look and tonal characteristics of film, and familiar TV-like quality. Panasonic's advanced source analysis and frame generation deliver smooth, natural, and lifelike images.

Operate Multiple Systems with Just One Remote Control through VIERA Link

The WT50 features VIERA Link, a technology that allows a consumer to operate all VIERA Link compatible AV components using only the TV’S remote control. Just point the VIERA remote at your TV, and the signal will travel over the HDMI wires to the right piece of equipment, like your Panasonic Blu-ray or DVD player or Home Cinema Surround System.

Environmentally Friendly

The new and improved high efficient LED/LCD panels reduce targeted power consumption up to 25% over the 2011 models. The WT50 series is Energy Star certified and has a long-life panel.

~~My Setup~~
The Panasonic VIERA TC-L47WT50 47-Inch is remarkably thin and the industrial design is gorgeous. I did not wall mount the unit, but put it on my media console. For console use, there's a bit of assembly involved with attaching the unit to the stand and you will need two people to do it safely.

I have it hooked up to a Panasonic blu-ray player, TiVo TCD748000 Premiere XL DVR (Black), Apple TV MC572LL/A (2010) [OLD VERSION], and Xbox 360 4GB Console via an Onkyo HT-RC180 7.2-Channel A/V Surround Home Network Receiver (Black). Because my AV receiver does not support HDMI 1.4 (only 1.3), I cannot pass 3D or audio return channel (ARC) through the receiver. I solved this by connecting my hardware directly to the Panasonic with HDMI cables and using the TV for video switching.

For audio, I am runinng an AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable, 6 Feet from the TV to the Onkyo. I hooked the TV up to the Internet with an AmazonBasics RJ45 Cat5e Ethernet Patch Cable (14 Feet/4.2 Meters).

Size: 55-Inch Verified Purchase
Been researching new Smart TV's for about 2 months and like most people on a mission to find a good TV you have to weed through all the reviews and opinions found on the web. CNET, Amazon, HDTV forums and even watched the entire 2012 TV shootout videos on YouTube.

I kept going back and forth between plasma and LED/LCD. I was ready to take a chance on Panasonic plasma when my March edition of Consumer's Reports showed up in the mail. In the 55" to 59" category of ratings Panasonic took the top 3 places with the VT plasma, ST plasma and WT LED. It was also very interesting that the Panasonic WT is also the only Panasonic LED TV to make the HD Shootout (which was won by a Panasonic plasma).

So decided this TV was worth a look. Headed to a local Big Box store and must say I was impressed with the picture on this TV hanging on the wall in the "High-End" section of the store with the top rated plasmas and Samsung LED and Sony's top of the line LED's. I was armed with Amazon's online price and decided I would buy this set right then if they would match the price (they were $400 higher). After they decided to let me walk, I went home and got online and ordered it from Amazon.

Two days later I received an email from the delivery company asking me to schedule a time to deliver my new TV. We scheduled a day for the early part of the following week. Can't beat this kind of customer service.

A couple of days went buy and I noticed that Amazon had dropped the price by $100 so I sent them a quick email and the next day I had a response stating they were issueing me a credit for the $100. Great!

Two days later, the price drops another $140 so shot off another email and a qucik response with an additional $140 credit.

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.

Size: 47-Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wow! I am simply blown away with this Super Slim, HIGH EFFICIENCY LED-LCD 3D HDTV. It has 240hz 24p for very smooth play of rapid sports action. The video quality is absolutely remarkable.

Cloud apps came pre-installed and ready for use:
Amazon Video on Demand (and PRIME!), Netflix, Hulu+, Youtube, etc all came pre-installed on the HDTV. Additional apps , both free and paid, are available with activation of a (free) cloud storage account. This makes the number of apps allowed limitless! We have watched videos on all the apps listed above, very smooth! No hiccups, no streaming issues, no waiting for videos to load, no issues. I activated our wifi on the slower 802.11g channel to test the tv's handling of a slower wifi signal. We also experienced flawless operation on our 2.4 ghz 802.11n wifi connection. Our ISP/home network is a rock steady 30 mbps connection with multiple wireless video streaming devices - again no issues with bandwidth or video loading with this combination.

High Efficiency: the energy label indicates $15 / year cost to operate; well beyond the lowest end of the scale. Ladies, if you are planning a tv for the bedroom and are concerned with hot flashes, this is your tv! We have left ours running a full 24 hours for days on end (the Roku box allows the HDTV to be used as a very large digital photo frame, yet we still cannot feel any extra heat anywhere around this model.

Package included the expected:
* 47" 3D HDTV - superslim and lightweight!
* Power cord, base stand (star trek style...), owners manual
* 2 remotes w/ 2 AA batteries for each - the "extra" remote is a remote touchpad allowing easy web navigation. It appears a blue tooth keyboard will connect as well!!
