Panasonic TC-P50S1
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Mar 11, 2009

THE GOOD: Reproduces deep black levels and excellent shadow detail; solid color saturation; uses less power than previous 1080p plasmas; adequate connectivity with three HDMI and two component-video inputs. THE BAD: Less accurate primary colors and color temperature; skimpy picture controls; still less efficient than comparable LCDs. THE BOTTOM LINE: With deep black levels and generally excellent picture quality, the more eco-friendly Panasonic TC-PS1 series of plasma TVs strikes an appealing price/performance balance.

TC-P50S1 50" Plasma TV
5 Star Review   By Dan on 6th Ave Electronics - Jul 26, 2009   

Strengths: Great picture. Good sound. 3 HDMI. Easily lifted by one person (Although I'd have a buddy just in case!)

Weakness: For a $1000 1080P plasma there are none I can see. Maybe not as slick as a $3000 dollar tv but this is a great TV for the price.

This TV is great and is a bargain at just over $1000. Simple set up, great picture make it a no brainer. 6ave had the best price and it was at my door within a week. Panasonic TVs are built like tanks. Buy it without hesitation.
