Panasonic Viera TC-P50X1 Plasma Review

 

Panasonic TC-P50X1 Review

When we wrote our initial comments regarding the 50X1 plasma from Panasonic in March when the units were introduced we were under the false assumption that this Panasonic model, though 720p rather than 1080p would preserve the excellent black levels for which Panasonic is known. We were wrong. The black levels are not sufficient to garner a good picture quality rating. We were right about the price coming in low. It can be found for a stunningly low price. We still maintain that 720p (as the X1 contains) is sufficient for 95% of programming out there even on a 50" screen if the processing is solid. But read our review below to find out how the X1 performed.

Below are our ratings for the Panasonic TC-P50X1. Please refer to the full review for detailed explanations of the ratings.
