By Daniel Delena on April 14, 2009
The P50G10 is my second HD Plasma experience, the first being a 2004 Panasonic, which still looks and works quite well. It has found another spot in our home to make room for the new G10 in our family room. When searching for and finally selecting the new Panasonic G10, I was comparing choices against this first experience considering both the manufacturer and the plasma technology. While I have a few smaller sized LCD's, mostly in the 20-32" range, I have never been overly impressed with the picture. The seem a bit cartoonish, even in HD mode, so I quickly settled on a plasma as my technology choice. Having made that decision the alternatives in terms of manufacturers narrowed quickly. Wh Pioneer exiting the Plasma business, and considering my experience with my original Panasonic plasma the brand decision was made. Selecting which model from Panasonic boiled down to scouring the 2009 product announcements and available reviews (CNET), and making the trade-offs on size, cost and availability. This all led me to the P50G10, which was a good fit on all points.

I have had the unit installed and working for 4 weeks now, and must say its been an extremely satisfying time. The G10 is a major step up, from my previous plasma, in terms of picture, inputs i.e. 3 HDMI vs 1, and ability to control each picture setting independently. I have tweaked the picture setting on the Standard and THX settings a bit to sharpen and brighten the picture a bit, but most of the other settings are very good out of the box. As the unit is stand mounted, and in a room with mostly indirect and overhead lighting there are no issues with glare or light reflection, from the main glass or its glossy black bezel.

I bought the TC-P50G10 three weeks ago, and am very happy with it. I did a lot of research and tried out a number of TVs before settling down on this one, so I thought I would share some of the information and my experience with the TV, and hopefully make your decision in choosing the TV a bit easier.

First thing first. According to my research, the Panasonic G10 probably has the best picture quality among all TVs in mass production as of the time of this review (May, 2009). Most importantly it has pitch dark black level, scorching brightness, high color accuracy, and good motion processing.

I chose the Panasonic plasma over Sony and Samsung LCD for a few reasons. (1) Compared to 120Hz LCDs, Panasonic is significantly cheaper than Sony and Samsung. (2) I think the G10 is better in handling motion than the 120HZ LCDs. (3) The colors on the plasma are more appealing to me than those on the LCDs. (4) It has superior viewing angle. It looks perfect from any angle you will actually watch the TV without washing out the color, prserving the quality of the color.

The third point on color appeal is subjective and calls for description of subjective experience. There are lots of technical comparison of the colors on different displays on the internet, but my perceptual experience is that the colors on the panasonic plasma is very vibrant, punchy, tantalizing, and mesmerizing. The colors look like things in real life, but they are more intense than real life. A friend said "it's prettier than real, but not distorted. It is just like an enhanced colorful world." If you prefer high fedelity to real life colors, you can use the THX mode to tune it down to be very faithful to studio color measures. LCD in comparison is also very vibrant, but it doesn't look as realistic.

I've been researching flat panel TV's for about a year now, and thru showroom viewing, friends' recommendations, online reviews (purchasers and experts), and Consumer Reports, I had narrowed my field down to Sony LCD Z- and XBR Series, Samsung LCD and plasma(550, 650, 750), and Panasonic plasma (PZ-800, PZ-850). The Sonys had great picture quality but were pricey. Samsung also had some good values but I just cannot get past the "Touch of Color" red accents on their mid and upper level TVs. [Call me traditional, but I think TV's look best in black or gray.] The Panasonic sets from last year didn't look quite as bright in the showrooms (Best Buy, ABC Warehouse, others) as the LCD's but I just liked the picture quality better--more vivid colors and deeper blacks, better motion handling. The power consumption issue was a bit of a concern, but Panasonic claims that their 2009 sets are more energy efficient. The new 2009 Panasonic G10 Series TVs struck just the right value balance for me--great bang for the buck. I've had mine for about two weeks now and I'm thrilled so far except for native sound quality; it's good, just not as exceptional as the vivid picture. Setup was easy, adjustments straightforward, and the manual is helpful. The remote could be better, as the VieraCast buttons have a needlessly prominent location on the relatively large remote. There are backlit buttons for Volume and Channel, but unfortunately the button to activate the backlighting is small and unlit. Small matter. Anyway, standard Cable, HD and DVD picture quality is really good and BluRay is nothing short of amazing. The SD Card viewer is cool, too. I'm not noticing any significant trouble with screen glare, even though my set's in a bright room; I was waayy overworried about that pre-purchase. Overall, I've been very happy with my Panasonic TC-P50G10 with no regrets.
