Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures 600Hz Sub-field Drive - 600Hz technology lets you view superb full-HD motion and still images. 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.

Ultimate Color Expression x.v.Color - VIERA HDTV models with x.v.Color compatibility reproduce vibrant colors in images recorded with wide x.v.Color gamut compatible camcorders. These rich, vivid images are a feast for the eyes.

Years of Beautiful Images Long Panel Life, Up to 100,000 Hours - One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

100,000 Hours Panel Life

Environment-Friendly Panel Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel - Mercury and Lead Free Plasma Display Panel Panasonic is committed to making our products more friendly to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.

Environment-Friendly Panel

Easy Access to Helpful Functions VIERA Tools - The VIERA Tools user interface makes it easy to access and understand key functions. Simply press a function button, and an explanation appears on the screen. Keep the button pressed to activate the function immediately.

          Comments about Panasonic 50" VIERA 1080P Plasma Flat Panel HDTV:

          As I get up there in age, I find it hard to keep up with the latest technology. This TV has a good picture. I suppose that's the most important thing. The multitude of set-up options are somewhat bewildering. I can't get the buttons on the side to do what they are supposed to, i.e., chose and set an input. That might be my fault. But, in time, I have managed to set it up so that I am pleased with the picture and need not make further adjustments.

              The instruction booklet is not great, but whenever I have called Panasonic I've gotten great help. The wait time to talk to a real person is pretty long sometimes. I had trouble connecting my older DVD player and getting the TV connected to my internet network. Panasonic customer service easily helped with both those issues. It would have been more helpful to have a better instruction book.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and courteous. We scheduled at delivery time online and that was worthless. You need to talk to a real person about delivery times. It arrived in good condition.
