    Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA U1 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

    This TV was a great price when I bought it 4 years ago and it really seems to have held its value. My biggest problem is the same thing another reviewer noted. Whether CATS is on or off, sometimes dark areas of the picture will suddenly lighten and then it will go back to dark. It does this quite often and it's very annoying as it takes you out of the movie experience. It is a nice size and easy to use but I wish it was a bit more clear. I've tweaked tons of settings but I'm never quite happy with the picture. It's good but I wish it was great.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA U1 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

      This TV is a great package for the price. However, this TV is made for dark light rooms because it is highly reflective. The room I have it in now does get a bit of sunlight that is slightly noticeable and can get annoying. If the TV isnt customly formated for picture when watching Cable it may be blury so make sure to format properly. Also I would advise that you should get a seperate speaker system because the built in sound is not the best quality. Finally there are only 3 HDMI, 2 HD Component cables and one AV cable input so there is a lack of inputs. Despite these drawbacks the TV has a great size, picture quality (made for gaming and Blu-Ray), very easy to set up and adjust settings, and is a must buy for the price.

      Contrast Flickering

      By 

      from Auburn, CA

      Pros

      • Compact
      • Convenient
      • Inexpensive

      Cons

      • Poor Documentation

      Best Uses

        Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA U1 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

        I dont know if I am the only one but i need to look at other plasma TVs BUT I am experiencing what looks like a flicker in the contrast while viewing any kind of media. You can see the screen lighten then darken, my CATS is currently shut off and its doing it in every mode. Bang for the buck is great but I feel this should be looked into.

          Great deal. only problem is it does not have a anti-glare finish on the screen so in my sunny room it reflects images. Get the TC-P50S2 if you are concerned about glare. Little fuzzy when you are with in 2-4 ft of the screen
