TCP50S60 - Panasonic 50" Black 1080P Plasma HDTV

The Panasonic TCP50S60 Plasma brings a whole new look to your favorite programs and movies. Poised to bring you the most vibrant colors and clarity to your living room, or home entertainment center, the Panasonic 50" plasma features a 600Hz sub-field drive that coverts the motion in scenes into data and each frame is displayed in a shorter length of time, leaving for a smoother picture, no matter how fast the action. There is also an excellent new feature called the contrast automatic tracking system, or C.A.T.S. that will adjust the TV screen's brightness according to the surrounding light availability. This way, the Panasonic 50 inch plasma TCP50S60 gives you the perfect picture, no matter your surroundings.

If you are environmentally conscious, the is right up your alley. The Panasonic 55 inch plasma is mercury and lead free. This reduced the impact on the environment, years down the line. Speaking of down the line, the new Panasonic VIERA panel will last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day from your favorite programs!

Features:

  • 600Hz Sub-field Drive
    Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images
  • Play Various Types of Formats Easily
    Simply insert a USB memory stick into the slot to enjoy previously saved music, or view photos and video clips on Viera's large screen. You can also add frames and other effects to your photos and videos, and create slide shows complete with background music. A wide variety of formats are supported, so you can play PC-based music files and web movies right on your TV
  • Eco Mode
    This mode automatically turns the power off and adjusts the brightness depending on VIERA's operating status
  • No signal for 10 minutes or no activity for 3 hours
    This setting automatically turns the power off when there's no image signal for 10 minutes or more, or when there's no activity for 3 hours or more
  • Power Save
    This setting adjusts screen brightness to reduce power consumption
  • C.A.T.S (Contrast Automatic Tracking System)
    This feature automatically adjusts screen brightness according to ambient light. When the room darkens, it lowers the screen brightness and adjusts the image quality, resulting in both easier viewing and power conservation
  • Mercury and Lead Free
    Panasonic is committed to making our products friendlier to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use
  • Long Panel Life
    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

        Comments about Panasonic 50" Black 1080P Plasma HDTV:

        Very happy with this product. Very 'natural' image quality. We did a lot of research and had some concerns about reflections in a somewhat bright room and burn-in. After three weeks in a room with lots of windows, a blanket of snow outside and full sun, watching lots of football and hockey...no issues (tv faces away from windows). All of our input sources (DVD, Satelite TV) have screen savers so burn-in is not an issue. Hookup was easy. Very pleased.

              The Panasonic TC-P50S60 is an excellent choice for buyers looking for a KISS TV- Keep It Simple Stupid. Outstanding picture quality matched with simple functionality equals an excellent product at a great price point.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Abt provided a seamless buying experience, from order through delivery and were offering the product for less than more well known competitors. After this experience with Abt I will look at them first for future electronics purchases.

                Purchased the 2012 55" UT model for my living room and was very pleased with features. Pleased enough to go out and pick up this 50" 2013 model for the bedroom. Picture quality can not be beat on these plasmas! All the negative stigmas associated with plasmas are no more. If I needed another TV right now, which I don't, a panasonic plasma would be it.

                Literally best bang for your buck for a 1080p TV rich in features.

                    Got the TV through AMEX Rewards Points - quick and very easy shipping through ABT. Put the TV downstairs and in minutes we were up and running! We recently "cut the cord" and the digital tuner on this Panasonic picked up 5 additional HD channels that our new Sharp didn't. Not very many inputs, but we had enough to hook up the X-Box and Bluray player and both are fantastic through the Panasonic. The 600 Hz rate is fantastic - very clear picture. It was also nice to have all the apps installed so we didn't need another Roku - the kids think that the new TV has a Roku built in! Couldn't be happier with the purchase or the ease of set up. Hooked up to a digital antenna the picture is great. We don't even miss the cable! Great product.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was prompt and easy. Driver was very helpful and the product arrived in excellent condition. Thanks ABT!
