Product Details

Panasonic VIERA 50" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCP50G25

The VIERA® G25 Series Plasma is the center of your entertainment universe. With VIERA Cast™, enjoy what the web has to offer right on the big screen. Catch up with family and friends with Skype on your TV, catch your favorite movie with Netflix and listen to great music with Pandora - plus more! And the Infinite Black Panel featured on the G25 series blocks ambient light and produces deep blacks and bright, vivid images with minimal reflection.

Features:

  • VIERA CAST™
    VIERA Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums, it now offers Pandora® Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix™*, exciting sports from FOX Sports™, tweeting web communications with Twitter®, and even home video and audio conferencing with Skype™. It also provides USB terminals for a keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor. No PC required
    • *Netflix limited membership required
    • **Keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor are not included
    • *Design and content are subject to change without notice
  • Skype™ on Your VIERA® TV
    VIERA Cast's addition of Skype makes it possible for people around the world to connect and communicate through voice and video calls from the comfort of their own living room on VIERA's large screen
    • * Broadband connection and a webcam required
  • Infinite Black Panel
    A new panel and improvements to the cell discharge area dramatically increase contrast when viewing in brightly lit locations. And reducing the electrical pre-discharge that causes graying has greatly enhanced black gradation. As a result, deep, rich blacks are displayed in virtually any viewing area, from living rooms to bedrooms. Even in dark film scenes, fine textures such as on clothing, are clearly reproduced
  • VIERA Image Viewer™
    It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. You can also choose from among 5 types of background music and 5 display effects. It's much more fun when you can view them on a large screen HDTV with family and friends in 1920x1080-pixel high definition and a wide 16:9 aspect ratio
  • THX® Certified Display
    THX® reproduces film images as the filmmakers intended them. The overall aim was to improve the experience of cinema-goers and faithfully recreate the audio and visual ambience that filmmakers intended. To receive THX® certification, TVs undergo stringent tests to determine, for example, whether the exact same brightness and color are displayed at all screen locations, and whether black levels satisfy standard criteria. VIERA® meets the high standards set by the THX® Certified Display Program
    • * THX and THX logo are trademarks of THX Ltd., which may be registered in some jurisdictions. All rights reserved
  • 600Hz Sub-field Drive
    600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images with 1,080 lines of resolution. For even greater clarity with motion images, Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into dots. And each frame is practically displayed for a shorter length of time than in previous systems, to reduce aftereffects
    • *When using cinema mode
  • VIERA Link™
    VIERA Link allows interconnected operation of various AV devices using only the VIERA remote control, by simply connecting compatible devices to each other by an HDMI cable

    Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

    I’ve had this TV for about 8 months. I read all the reviews and find that the complaints for the most part are unwarranted, but the things that should be noted aren't. The picture quality is great and it is easy to use, but the sound, not so much. If you are going to buy this TV and like good quality sound, plan on investing in a surround sound system. Further the volume control doesn't make sense. The TV is about 12 - 13 feet away from where we sit. My hearing is excellent, but I find myself always playing with the volume and comfortable sound clarity only comes at about a setting of 35-40. The ceiling is standard height and acoustics are normal. The setting for variance between channels makes little or no difference. So why have a setting of 15-20 which is only good at limited times? As for the accessories, the most interesting are a) Internet connectivity and b) Skype enabled Web Cam. A) For Internet connectivity you have to purchase a Panasonic Wireless LAN Adaptor #DY-WL10. (Only one that works with the TV) The dumb part is that it is about an inch thick and the USB ports are about 1/8th inch apart so that makes the other port useless. Japan should send their engineers over here for an education. If you want to add another accessory you have to purchase some sort of small hub. On top of that the adapter is expensive. About $100 street price. If you stream from Netflix or want to see your local weather you have to get it. Most importantly the TV requires periodic updates to its software. If you want the updates the adapter is a must. B) The coolest feature is the ability to make internet video calls with the Panasonic Skype Enabled Communication Camera # TY-CC10W, if you can get it work! Again, want to plug it in, you need a USB Hub. Again, obscenely expensive, about $120-140 street price and it does nothing except give you connection. No additional software ability. Only works on the TV, not on computers and only with Skype. And again, no other cameras work with this TV. Now to the part about getting it to work...I could not. Panasonic support absolutely stinks!!! I bought the adapter when I got the TV and it worked fine if you can live with the price. I bought the camera recently. I'm pretty tech savvy and the hook up is quite simple. (Yes I plugged it in directly to the TV and used the adapter, which worked this way, into the hub…also tried it in reverse) I could not get to camera to work so I called Panasonic Support. Over 2 hours on the phone. Wait time about 10 minutes. Talking to the Tech about 2 hours. This guy made me reset the TV back to defaults which is a process. On top of that you have to reconnect to your network which, of course involves getting your encryption code, typing it in, and so on. The TV also has to rescan for channels and that takes about 15 minutes at least. All of this to tell me the TV is ok and the camera is defective. DUH, I told him that when I called. Bummer. Rethinking the cost, I sent the dumb camera back for a refund. My next TV...I'll give considerable thought to another brand. The Pro's...it does have a great picture!

        Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

        I had considered many many TVs as this was my first time purchasing a flat panel TV. The choices are endless- LED, LCD, Plasma, different manufacturers, etc. Panasonic is one of the top two for manufacturers for flat panels and tops for the plasmas. If you are looking for true picture quality as well as action without any blur- consider this: this plasma is 600mhz versus the top of the line LED or LCD at 240mhz. That is well over double the frame rate that you get on those others- in laymens terms: the picture is phenomenal for action movies, sports, etc you name it. Color contrasts on this are great as well- videophiles will tell you that plasma is the way to go for picture quality as well as motion, and especially the blacks being a true black. Additionally, with the plasma, you don't have to be directly in front of it to get a sweet spot picture like you do for the LED's and LCD's.

          Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

          I have owned this 50" model for two months now and for your money you can't go wrong at all. this picture quality is awesome and bright colors. the set up was a snap and the only drawback was the original speaker is very week but with a sound system it sounds great. I wish there were more internet programs available (like Google TV) and the selection is very limited and not able to add anything. But as for the TV it is one of the best out there in the 50" models esp. for the price. I would recommend this to my best friends for sure.

                Comments about Panasonic VIERA 50" G25 Series Plasma Black Flat Panel HDTV:

                Bought this unit to replace a 5-yr-old HDTV (DLP 720P). The improvement in technology and performance since then is really amazing. I'm still in the burn-in period, so I haven't yet seen what this set can do when it's tweaked, but the contrast, black level and detail are hard to imagine until you experience them. I'm even gaping at commercials, for pete's sake. I have no interest in 3D yet (still in its infancy) and only passing interest in web-based content, but for HD content and Blu-Ray, this thing is stellar. It's beyond me why there's even a debate between plasma and LCD. Plasma is cheaper and the picture is better in important ways (contrast, motion clarity, off-axis viewing). So what if the set is a couple inches thicker? Of course, I've only had it a week, so durability is still a question, but initial impressions are all very favorable.

                    I'd have to say that I don't have anything but great things to say about the TP50G25. Absolutely great tv, awesome quality and real good functionality. I am so glad I waited (since I was close to purchasing last year's G10 model) but this is the best tv I've ever owned and probably ever seen. I am a very unbiased person and gave an equal consideration to the other brands and none of the other major brands compete in price nor quality at this range. I am not a huge fan of 3D in the home so I have not even considered the VT models but this was the closest I could get to a top tier model without spending a small fortune! I did my homework and looked at the research and background on it and BOY am I glad I did. I've had a bad experience with another tv manufacturer in the recent past but this brand has restored my faith in good products out there, in a world where almost everything is disposable....I've had at least three people who have been over to watch a sports program or for gaming and have told me that they regret buying LED or LCD, because their tv does NOT look as good and it was far more expensive. Since I purchased it, right before the World Cup of Soccer there was nothing that was out that competed with the quality nor price range. A definite investment worth every penny, however if you plan on purchasing be aware this is a top-tier model and almost no show rooms have it on display so you will have to really look around to see if anyone is diplaying it and most importantly who has it in stock because I had to travel to the warehouse to pick it up since I did not want it to be delivered. Make sure you do your homework if U are serious about your Video/Audio needs and you'll be satisfied with your purchase.
