Remarkable picture, beautiful design!
Overall this is an excellent TV. The 2D picture is remarkable and the design is beautiful and unobtrusive in even the most minimalist environments. The Internet features are some of the best I've seen.
I don't expect to use the 3D much until the Olympics. Panasonic is the exclusive TV partner with the 2012 Olympics and this is one of their signature TVs. I expect they will want the 3D capability to shine.
Excellent with Strong black levels
The WT50 has a very modern appearance, from the front the panel glass seems to go all the way to edge thanks to a very slim bezel. There are brushed metal accents on the side of the panel that match the ultra-modern, curved, 2 legged stand. There is also a bit of clear acrylic accenting at the bottom of the bezel. The WT50 is extremely slim at about a half inch in depth.
Contrast and color accuracy are entirely average, on a TV that's fairly expensive.
The Panasonic Viera (MSRP $2299) is a good TV. It's sporting mostly accurate colors, passable contrast, a usable smart platform, and decent 3D. Noticing a distinct lack of praise? That's because, in our opinion, a $2000+ flagship TV from a company like Panasonic should be a lot more than simply "good".
The bottom line is, if you're shopping for a TV with the works that'll fulfill your expectations, the L47WT50 is a fine choice.
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.
