Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ850U
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Jul 1, 2008

THE GOOD: Reproduces deep black levels; relatively accurate color temperature and color decoding; excellent uniformity with little false contouring; relatively effective antireflective screen; can access YouTube videos, Picasa online photo sharing and other interactive features via Ethernet port; solid connectivity with four HDMI and one PC input; handsome styling with single-pane design. THE BAD: Expensive; less accurate primary and secondary colors; blacks not quite as deep as some plasmas; optional 24p mode introduces flicker. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Panasonic TH-50PZ850Us color accuracy issues prevent it from topping the high-end plasma TV heap, but excellent picture quality and unique interactive features maintain its appeal.

Strengths: Picture Quality, look, sound,versatility

Great TV
5 Star Review   By member kj1000 - Sep 12, 2008   

Strengths: Incredible picture. Deep colors. Nice design. 4 hdmi connnections.

Weakness: Not pure black. Sound a little lacking. Vierra cast more of a play item rather than valuable. Cheap looking remote.

I bought this tv at a great price from Panasonic direct and am not disappointed. I looked at this product many times in the store and came away impressed. It does not have the dark available in the Pioneer Kuro but it is also quite a bit less. The color is deep out of the box, I plan on fine tuning it shortly. The Viera cast is more of a toy rather than practical at this point, but shape of things to come in the future. The tv is functional, easy to set up, and excellent picture. I highly recommend this tv as a main unit.
