Panasonic TH-50PHD Review by Chris Avron from NV
Q:  Describe the picture of the plasma TV/LCD monitor in terms of clarity, color reproduction, contrast and brightness.

A:  Color is great, the blacks are great in the picture, but the bars on either side or on top and bottom are a bit grey. Only having the TV a few days, and not watching a lot of it in general, it makes it a bit difficult to compare. The brightness is overwhelmingly clear and provides tons of lght and color. There appear to be no differences in contrast between this monitor and my previous 32" CRT TV. The clarity is so good that with an older movie (Lost in Space 1998), the greaphics seems almost childish at some points. Technology has come so far in that field, but it is almost unnoticeable in a CRT.

Q:  What are your general comments on your Plasma TVs/LCD Monitors? How do you like it?

A:  I love the monitor. It is a great addition to my home theater set-up. It sits almost flat to the wall, even tilted. At first, I though that a TV hang 3-5" from the wall would look stupid, but it fits very nicely. You don't even seem to notice that it is there.

Q:  How would you best describe the design and looks of the Plasma TV/LCD Monitor?

A:  The design and looks are fairly plain. It looks like a big TV screen. I actually overwhelmingly prefer the Pioneer Elite PRO 1000's looks and style, but the color repro was not near as good and the price was significantly more due to the Urushi finish. I would like future models to be a bit more stylish since it is almost a piece of art.

Q:  Plasma TV Inputs used? A:  1 Component using RCA - BNC Cables

Q:  How long have you had the Plasma TV/LCD Monitor? A:  3-12 Months

I installed it. I built a wall using 2x6's in an existing TV niche built into my home. I then mounted the bracket to the newly built wall and placed the TV in the bracket.

Q:  Where did you purchase your Plasma TV/LCD Monitor? How was your buying experience?

A:   DTVCity.com - The experience was phenomenal........I would highly recommend to anyone looking for high-end video monitors to purchase from Laura at DTVCity.com. She was extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. I am 100% completely satisfied with this vendor!

Panasonic TH-50PHD5UY Review by Jonathan Marsh from NY
Q:  Describe the picture of the plasma TV/LCD monitor in terms of clarity, color reproduction, contrast and brightness.

A:  Excellent picture brightness, good contrast. Upconverts satellite tv signal so that it looks excellent.

Q:  What are your general comments on your Plasma TVs/LCD Monitors? How do you like it?

A:   I like the built in scaling features so that I can manipulate the image to fit the screen. The 4:3 to 1.85 stretch modes are great for watching tv, especially the Panasonic "Just" setting. I love my plasma tv and won't go back to conventional sets. I switched from a front projection system because of space constraints when I moved. Although my 50" plasma is smaller than the 100" screen replaced, the ease of use and picture quality is better and I do not have to dim the lights to black in order to view films and programs

Q:  How would you best describe the design and looks of the Plasma TV/LCD Monitor?

A:  The design and the look of the Panasanic 50" Plasma screen is sleek and elegant. The fact that it is only 4" thick works great in my apartment. Space is premium!
