About Me Enthusiast
This TV has a STUNNING picture. Very Natural. Arguably the best TV built in 2012. It has none of the inherent weakness of LCD like off center viewing or motion artifacts. Many power users love it and pay to have it calibrated, but many people also post the settings on the Internet for you to duplicate. One thing perhaps overlooked is the dual core processor. This thing runs rings around other Streaming or internet players for speed. I can tell that it is much cooler than previous Plasmas, thus more energy efficient. Only quible is the Chrome Trim around the edge. (It reflects a Lamp I have in the room) Keep in mind that many new Thin TV's are quite short on Input jacks other than HDMI. This one uses a strange Dongle to provide either ONE component or ONE composit input. So, if you have more than one older non-hdmi device, you need to run them thru a reciever. Sound is only fair, but not unexpected as with any thin TV.

A great display built for a "tweaker"
This is Panasonic's flagship plasma for 2012. Certainly one of the best images you will find on any consumer level display. Blows any LED out of the water except for the Elite Sanyo models which cost twice as much. If you like to calibrate displays or have a professional do this for you, this is worth the extra money over the GT50. If you are happy with more limited adjustment capabilities, you may be happy with the GT and saving some money.
ABT's local delivery team is top notch. They have always been very professional and courteous.

This TV is simply great. it was easy to set up and great picture off the box using THX setting. The purchase transaction with ABT was great. Negotiated a price and within a few days got the tv in perfect condition. The only thing i don't like about the tv is the sound. Is rather bland and weak but since I have surround system not a major issue, just something to notice.
Worth every penny!

The ST series is a great TV, but for home theater you can't beat the VT series. My 50" ST is a fantastic picture, but the VT is considerably better. You won't be disappointed with either, but WOW the VT series is amazing.

Consumer TV Of The Year
from Wausau, WI & Naples, FL
The VT50 is the consumer TV of the year as far as I'm concerned. I am a THX Certified Level II Video Calibrator and with one exception Panasonic really got it right this year. In the Custom or (calibrator accessible)Day and Night ISF modes a full set of calibration controls is available and this display calibrates very well. The single exception is that the luminance controls in the Color Management System are inoperative but will hopefully be fixed in a future firmware release. Despite that, the luminance is very close to correct from the factory and within accepted calibration specifications.Another plus is that maximum brightness has been increased this year making the VT50 good for daytime bright room viewing.
