Panasonic VIERA TC-P50S30 50-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV Customer Review

Updated on September 21, 2011

A Great Hit Among TV Consumers

For our next TV Review Series, we have a look at the Panasonic VIERA TC-P50S30 50 Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV. We specifically have a look at the features, technical specifications, and customer reviews of this great Panasonic VIERA HDTV.

Before we delve in, we need to make sure you are looking for the right TV. There are two other TVs you might want to consider that may better suit your needs. The debate between plasma vs lcd vs led TVs has been raging for a while. Over the past few years, the differences in quality has reduced little by little but there are still some significant differences that may alter your choices.

Plasma TVs are best suited for fast-paced motion images such as sports and video games. While, LCD and LED TVs are better suited for functional usage such as using it as a computer laptop, displaying static images etc. The overall quality between the best models are not highly noticeable but you should know that motion blur is more likely to occur in LCD or LED TVs. Plasma TVs are also more suited for larger TV frames.

At 50 Inch, The Panasonic VIERA has a frame size which is adequate for most households. The coolest feature of this TV is its internet-ready function. You can easily connect this TV to a Wifi adapter, which in turn gives you access to great online media services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu TV. Some manufacturers offer free packages that already includes such services.

Another cool feature is the VIERA Image viewer function. With an SD card slot, you can easily view and share your HD photos/videos with your friends and families on a large TV screen! You can turn it into a whole new movie experience by utilizing the slide show function, that enables you to also add background music and attractive virtual frames.

So what did customers have to say about this Panasonic VIERA TV? One customer commented on the picture quality as "excellent", however you need to be in total darkness in order to make the most of the video quality. This is the case with most Plasma TVs that are better suited for low-light conditions. Another customer commented on the usefulness of the SD slot. With no particular conversion needed, he could easily check out his photos by simply slotting in the Camera SD card.

On a different note, one customer appreciated the picture quality, however, he had a lot of issues regarding the high glares that appeared from the TV. Despite altering the position of TV, the glares did not seem to disappear from the TV screen. This again emphasizes the need for a location where one can easily control the lighting.

So what do you think about this TV?
