Affordable price, Nice-looking design, Strong set of Smart TV apps, Deep black levels
The Vizio E500I-A1 is a 50-inch LED 1080p HDTV with deep black levels, a good selection of online content and a sleek design. We were a little disappointed with the quality of the image, however, especially in terms of the color vividness and the local-dimming.
Finally, a plasma that looks good with the lights on
This tv still looks amazing and even more so after updating the settings in Custom. We still use the THX bright room settings when it's really bright outside and the shades are all the way up (windows are now directly across from the tv). There is still glare but no worse than on other tvs and not as bad as on some. Blacks still look good even with all that light shining directly on the set. I have seen no image retention while watching tv and I do not hunt for it.
3D Performance - Excellent
The TC-P50GT50 has the Infinite Black Pro panel that is Panasonic's best for 2012, but without the Ultra filter on the VT50 series which is even better. This is a big step up from lower end plasmas from Panasonic due to the much better signal processing. Black levels are about 20% better than lesser models with the extra fine processing of the sub pixel controller which controls the sub pixels red, green, blue inside each individual pixel cell.
Amazing TV for the price!
Being that this is my first HDTV, I can't really compare it to another specific one, but from what I have, it's just been amazing. The quality of the picture on the screen is crisp and bright, the volume adjusts very well, they even have a setting where it dims if you have the tv on at night in the dark (I sometimes fall asleep with the TV on so that helps). For the price it's a great bargain, I was in WalMart the other day and they had another 32 in. for the same price but a no name brand.
The viewing angle is wide for an LCD TV
There's not much to dislike about the LG 42LS3400 (MSRP $719). It doesn't have many ports and the audio is average, but it makes up for these shortcomings with its great color accuracy, wide viewing angle, and bright white levels. This TV even did well with motion performance and it doesn't have any fancy enhancement features like "TruMotion" or "CineMotion."
The MSRP may say $719, but you can easily find this LED for under $500 online.
Really great tv. Perfect size for my office/studio. Picture quality is excellent. I calibrated the tv using settings I found with a quick google search. Sound is ok, but as with most flat screens it lacks a really impressive on board audio set up. Xbox 360 games look incredible. I've been playing Skyrim and Battlefield 3 and am blown away by the picture. I fired up amazon prime (through Viera Cast) and watched Troll Hunter in HD.
Better black levels and Contrast
The E5 series is a mid-tier line of LED back lit LCD televisions from Panasonic for 2012. It is another line that shows Panasonic's commitment to larger and more feature rich LED TVs going forward. The TC-L37E5 has a 60Hz 1080p panel that uses Panasonic's 180 Back Lack Scanning for increased motion smoothing and it has access to Viera Cast, Panasonic's Smart TV online feature.
Deliciously lush 2D picture
The Panasonic TC-50GT30 plasma not only delivers a deliciously lush 2D picture, its rendering of 3D Blu-rays is one of the best that I have seen. Add to that a strong troupe of Internet content providers and this VIERA GT30 makes a great centerpiece to a home theater system.
Very good performer
With both 2D and 3D content, Panasonic's TC-P50GT30 is a very good performer, and its well-rounded features package hits all of the desirable bases: Web-based video-on-demand, an included WiFi adapter, DLNA streaming, and even Skype video conferencing. This plasma TV is equally well suited to the casual TV viewer and serious movie fan. The issue with subtle brightness fluctuation is disappointing but not a deal-breaker, as it isn't a constantly occurring problem.
Extraordinary 2D high-def.
Killer blacks, peerless colour and the best 3D performance we've seen so far; this 50-inch "neo plasma", complete with multimedia features including BBC iPlayer, DivX playback and Skype video calling, sees Panasonic in confident mood. If Wi-Fi and 3D glasses were included this set would edge top marks.
Superb build quality
We thought last year's Panasonic GT20 plasma TVs were good, but the P50GT30 knocks the spots of its predecessors. It ramps up the online functionality that's becoming such an essential item of 2011's TV feature counts, sports a drastically improved design, and best of all serves up the best 2D and 3D picture quality we've seen from a mid-range TV.
3D image is clean and immersive.
Overall, I would rate the TX-P42GT30 as an outstanding TV. And should you want to spring for those expensive Active Shutter glasses, the 3D image is clean and immersive, its network functionality is first rate and 2D image quality is deeply satisfying. A score of 90 per cent seemed fitting on performance, but loading ads onto the EPG is Panasonic's ongoing conceit that ignores the user experience and can't be endorsed.
The C6500 is app enabled
Among the larger, edge lit, LED TVs currently available, the Samsung C6500 is one of the best. If you're in the market for a super thin, beautiful display that is capable of capturing the excitement of HD sports while still retaining the subtlety of film via your favorite Blu-ray discs and can overlook some edge light deficiencies, built-in WiFi and a lack of 3D support then the Samsung 65-inch C6500 LED HDTV is worth your consideration.
Great video and audio quality
Overall, Samsung's BD-C6500 Blu-ray Player provides great video and audio quality. Energy efficient, with extremely fast operational speed. With the Internet@TV feature you are given an ever growing access to digital content. These great features and promises of more to come, the BD-C6500 the perfect Blu-ray Player to meet all your needs Now and In The Future.
Impressive package and an incredible value
A few minor caveats aside, the HT-C6500 is an impressive package and an incredible value. Quite frankly, I defy you to put together a home theater system with Blu-ray playback and media streaming -- not to mention 5.1 channels of surround sound -- of this quality for anywhere near the same price. The first home theater system I built with separate components way back in 1997 cost a heck of a lot more and didn't sound nearly as good.

Most promising features.
Bringing the new extreme engineering into reality, the master of digital entertainment Vizio comes up with its latest model called the Vizio XVT472SV. This model has some of the most promising features that will break the mold of the traditional HDTV. This direct type, backlit HDTV is comprised of 640 LEDs divided into 80 control blocks and utilities Smart Dimming to intelligently control these blocks, turning them on and completely off based on the content you're watching.
