Panasonic 50" VIERA U2 Series Black Plasma Flat Panel HDTV, Model TCP50U2

Features:

  • 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 Image Viewer™
    It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into your VIERA HDTV to display photos on the large screen. 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
  • 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
    • *VIERA Link™ is a new name for EZ Sync™. Not all VIERA Link™ features are usable with other VIERA Link™ and EZ Sync™ compatible products

Great Value but Leaves me Wanting More

By 

from Springville, UT, USA

Pros

  • Convenient
  • Durable
  • Easy to use
  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Did not meet expectations
  • weird shifting of light and dark in dark scenes.

Best Uses

    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.

    Good TV

    By 

    from Clearwater, Fl

    Pros

    • Compact
    • Convenient
    • Durable

    Cons

    • Poor sound quality

    Best Uses

      This TV has great picture quality and I love that it has 3 HDMI outputs. The one thing that I hate about this TV is the sound quality. It sucks bad.. You will need to connect external speakers to get a decent sound from this TV. Other than that it's a good buy.

      Great Value!

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Pros

      • Convenient
      • Easy to use
      • Game Mode
      • Inexpensive
      • Picture Quality

      Cons

      • Reflective screen
      • slight lack of inputs
      • Sound quality

      Best Uses

        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

          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.

          • no anti-glare finish on the screen

          Best Uses

            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

                    Cons

                      Best Uses

                        I researched for over 6 months in anticipation of buying an hdtv. I was sold on the panasonic plasma because of the depth and sophistication of color as well as it runs on 600Hz as opposed to 120-240Hz of the lcd and led. Though the lcd's and led's tend to be brighter (if brightness is what you're after, just adjust the brightness in the picture menu), their color quality and picture progression cannot compare to the plasma. Panasonic is the king of plasmas and with the Viera Link feature, using other Panasonic home theater components in conjunction with the TC-P42S1 is a breeze. Best purchase I've ever made.

                        Best Uses

                          I recently bought this TV and was worned about the glare of a plasma. I have a large bay window in my living room and got a bad glare on my old CRT, but with the AR on this model i can have the curtain pulled and my front door open and still nothing! The picture quality is unreal. Both my brothers have LCD and they don't come close to having the rich colors and deep blacks of my plasma. With the S2 coming out you can pick this TV up for next to nothing, and it well worth it!
