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

My wife and I already owned a 42" Panasonic 720P Plasma Viera set. After we determined how much income tax we were going to owe this year (a pleasant surprise, for a change), we decided to take advantage of the extra money we had at our disposal to replace one of the older TV's in our house with this 50" S60 1080P unit. What a great TV! I watch a lot of sports, and I think you can't beat a plasma set for fast action response. My son just bought a 55" from another manufacturer, which was much more expensive than this unit, and he is now thinking about taking it back and replacing it with a 60" Panasonic TV. Great work!

Until today, I would have raved about this TV. It's been great for two years now. Then today, it refused to turn on. A red light on the front just flashes. Nothing. No way, after two years of normal use, this Panasonic TV should have issues.

    internal audio processing not on output

    By 

    from Delaware, USA

    Pros

    • Easy to use
    • Inexpensive

    Cons

    • could use some features
    • no controlled audio outputs
    • no non reflective screen

    Best Uses

      It is unfortunate, like all other hd tvs, that all audio outputs cannot be volume controlled, surround sound enhanced, or equalized by the use of the tv audio processor. This simple change would provide a much desired way to use a basic stereo amplifier without ANOTHER remote control and more adjustments. I do think that all of the screens in every Viera set should be glare free regardless of the cost . This feature was missing and not stated in the description . Otherwise performs well

                  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.

                        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.
